Stand Up for GamesAid goes Super Saiyan

The funniest night on the games industry calendar raises over £9,000 at The Comedy Store last Monday May 9th – it’s biggest fundraising yet!

The Comedy Store welcomed a full house at it’s stand-up venue near Piccadilly on Monday night. GamesAid patron and Stand Up for GamesAid MC, Imran Yusuf, brought together a crackling line up from around the world to entertain a brimming room of games industry stars. The line up included Mike Gunn, Allyson Smith, John Robertson, Steve Gribbin, Damian Clark and Terry Alderton.



Starting with a happy hour of drinks, David and Matt did the rounds selling raffle tickets. Prizes included a Fallout 4 Pip Boy Edition courtesy of Bethesda, a Limited Edition Life is Strange set courtesy of Square Enix, spectacular Lego sets courtesy of Warner Bros and more merch from Bossa Studios, Numskull, Mind Candy and ESL Gaming. The raffle collected a total of £1,200. Also it’s biggest year yet!



Highlighting the night was John Robertson challenging Ian Livingstone to a round of his virally famous “The Dark Room”. “The Dark Room” won. Better luck next time, Ian!



The event couldn’t have been so incredibly successful without the support of our sponsors, Numskull and Bossa Studios. Thank you!
