Stand up (or Stay Home) for The Loss Foundation
Join us at our annual comedy event to support the hundreds of families devastated by losing loved ones every single day. They are not statistics to us – they are real people in need of support now and we are their frontline.
Stand Up for The Loss Foundation is back for the 7th year in a row. Hosted at the Union Chapel on Thursday 9th December 2021, a brilliant comedy night awaits you and raises much needed funds in the process. Once again, we have an all-star line up to make you belly-laugh as well as a few surprises. This year we are also offering the option for people to watch the comedy from home as we live-stream the event.
CONFIRMED ACTS include:
Searingly honest, frequently controversial but always meticulously measured and hilarious, the one and only Reginald D Hunter!
The funny, feisty, full-on and must-see Cally Beaton!
The gloriously down-to-earth, straight talking and extremely funny comic Angela Barnes!
The amazing Suzi Ruffell will hit you with punchlines you didn’t see coming!
Hailing from Yorkshire with her razor sharp one-liners and amazing celebrity impressions is Steff Todd!
Steve Bugeja one of the circuit’s most exciting comedians will be bringing his drum-tight humour and compelling storytelling!
