Good evening, Chuckle-fans! No doubt you have been wailing and gnashing your teeth for a month at the absence of Charity Chuckle from the Komedia. But we have been making our annual pilgrimage to Scotland to find more great comics for you! (And treat ourselves to lunch at a very nice restaurant).
Team Charity Chuckle ventured north to the grand citadel of Edinburgh for the world’s largest arts festival, not only to seek out more excellent comedic talent to bring back to Brighton, but also to put on a series of shows as part of the Fringe – 9 shows, 9 days, 9 charities, 36 comedians!
We did photo shoots with the comics and representatives of the charities:
The otter charity based on the Isle of Skye couldn’t make it so they sent us this chap:
We had our Chalk Board outside Just the Tonic Caves to announce that day’s line-up (providing it survived the rain).
And we put on some fantastic shows!
Our very first line up, on 2 August was compered by Aidan Goatley, and featured Angela Barnes, The Birthday Girls, Katherine Ryan and Sara Pascoe headlining!
…All for the Edinburgh Women’s Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre.
And our finale on 10 August featured Joe Wells compering and a fantastic line up of Joel Dommett, Romesh Ranganathan, Jim Holland, and Seann Walsh headlining.
All in aid of the International Otters Survival Fund.
This month we return to the Komedia with another top-notch line up headlined by the fantastic Nathan Caton, who was a hit at the Edinburgh Festival this year.
Let the teeth gnashing be ended!
