Have a laugh to support homeless people

Homelessness brings many emotions to mind – from sadness to outright anger.

Laughter really isn’t one of them.

But that hasn’t stopped Nottingham’s premier comedy club from arranging a benefit night to support our work helping local homeless people – and nor should it stop you from going along and having a good laugh.

The Glee, located in the iconic British Waterways Building, has already raised more than £2,000 to support our work, and is now going one step further by hosting a terrific night of comedy on World Homeless Day – Tuesday, October 10th.

The line-up will include:

  • Bethany Black whose 2016 Edinburgh Fringe show was described as “Honest, to the point, and very very funny."
  • Bobby Mair who has injected anarchy into panel shows such as Never Mind the Buzzcocks and Nick Grimshaw’s Sweat the Small Stuff.
  • Paul F Taylor who has been enjoyed by The Independent for his “…daft, Harry Hill-like ideas and diversions, chucking characters around with the agility of the Pajama Men”.    

If you’re a fan of these acts then you really ought to go along. If you’re a fan of live comedy in general then you really ought to go along. If you’ve never been to see live comedy in your life then (you guessed it) you really ought to come along.

This will be a brilliant showcase of outstanding comedy talent as seen at the Edinburgh Fringe, the Leicester Comedy Festival and on TV. 

The Glee is at the British Waterways Building, Castle Wharf, Canal Street, Nottingham NG1 7EH. Doors open at 6.45pm and the show starts at 8pm. Tickets (£15) are available here or by calling 0871 472 0400.  All ticket money and anything else raised on the night goes to Framework.
