Some of the country’s most exciting female stand-up, sketch and character comedians, including a few with TVO connections, are coming together for a night of comedy to raise money for homeless women.
Bring it Home for Homelessness takes place on Saturday 18th May at Islington’s Union Chapel. Acts include Foster’s Best Newcomer Award nominee Cariad Lloyd, Canadian stand-up Mae Martin, comedian and actress Aisling Bea (Fit and Dead Boss), Game of Thrones star Gemma Whelan, Zoe Gardner (IT Crowd and regular contributer to Colin Hoult) and Margaret Cabourn-Smith (IT Crowd), Trodd en Bratt (C4, Radio 4), Holly Burn (C4, BBC 4), Grainne Maguire (Radio 4), The Birthday Girls (BBC 3, Radio 4), The Boom Jennies (Radio 4) and Caroline Hardie, all hosted by Alison Thea-Skot (BBC 2) – aka The Human Tuning Fork – and her house band.
Tickets are available to purchase here for £15 and doors are at 6.0pm. Proceeds from the night will go to the Union Chapel’s Margins Project and St Mungos’ Rebuilding Shattered Lives project, which focuses on supporting homeless women.
