Stand up for GamesAid’s comedy night!

GamesAid is organising a brand new fundraiser for 2013 and it’s going to be a barrel of laughs, quite literally.


Ladies and gentlemen put your hands together for the very first Stand Up for GamesAid, a brand new comedy event set for Monday April 15th, hosted at world famous stand-up venue The Comedy Store and splendidly sponsored by Indigo Pearl Public Relations.

A crack line up of British and international comedy talent will be on hand for your comedic entertainment, it costs just £10 (£2.50 booking fee) with concessions for students and nurses at £8 (£1 booking fee) and tickets are limited so book now to secure yours.

The GamesAid comedy evening will be hosted and MC-ed by Imran Yusuf (Best Newcomer nominee at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2010)  who began his career in the games industry working for the likes of Midway Games, Eidos and SEGA Europe before departing for the bright lights of showbiz with appearances on The Now Show, The News Quiz and Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow.

The evening will feature Paul McAffery (Russell Howard’s Good News) Jason Patterson (Laughter Shock, Kojo’s Comedy Funhouse), The Noise Next Door the UK’s premier improv troop, Comedy Store regular Paul Thorne, comedian and musician Kev Orkian and Fosters Edinburgh award winner The Boy With Tape On His Face.

Rounding off this cream of the comedic talent will be one very special guest which we are forbidden from revealing (under pain of death), but keep your eyes peeled for further announcements – our advice? Quite simply, book early!

It promises to be a riotous evening of fun, frolics and frivolity and if your sides haven’t split by the end of the evening, they must have been surgically re-enforced.

What more can you ask? Well rest assured all money raised will go direct to GamesAid which supports charities for disabled and disadvantaged young people and children in the UK, so it’s comedy to soothe your social conscience too.
