Eddie will join a stellar line up of comedians, including Josh Widdicombe, Sara Pascoe and Absolute Radio’s Rob Beckett as they come together to raise money for the housing and homelessness charity. Along with other special guests that are still to be announced. Absolute Radio is the official radio partner for Stand Up for Shelter, and the evening will be hosted by our very own Christian O’Connell.
Every penny raised from the event will go towards helping Shelter to make sure that they can be there to support all those struggling with bad housing and homelessness.
Eddie Izzard, said:
It’s great to be doing a gig for Shelter, who are a lifeline for people battling to keep a roof over their heads. With demand for their services increasing every day, Shelter needs as much support as possible to make sure no-one has to fight bad housing or homelessness on their own. So please buy a ticket, have a laugh, and support a great charity at the same time.
Campbell Robb, Shelter’s chief executive, said:
We’re delighted that Eddie and so many other brilliant comedy acts will be coming together for one night only to raise money for Shelter. Buying a ticket for Stand Up for Shelter will not only guarantee a phenomenal night of comedy, but help us to continue to be there for everyone who needs us.
Tickets for this one-off night of comedy are on sale now at shelter.org.uk/standup with all proceeds going straight to Shelter.
