What a night we had on Thursday 28th March!

After several weeks of anticipation, our 7 brave volunteers took the stage to perform a stand-up comedy routine in front of a live audience. The hard work during the workshops with local comedian, Jack Miller, clearly paid off. Every one of our performers did a brilliant job and had the crowd laughing all night! It was great to see so many familiar faces in the audience. In fact, the event was sold out which was brilliant.

Of course, after all of the performances, it was time to choose the winner of the night. And the winner was… drumroll please…

Our very own Ben Duggan!

Here’s what Ben had to say:

“The Comedy Night was an amazing experience and not just because I won! The whole process was enjoyable, challenging, and scary. Meeting 6 people who I had never met before and seeing us all put so much effort in and then to deliver a fantastic night of comedy created a bond. We are all still in conversation and plan to do some open mic nights together in the future! Jack Miller, the comedian from the Comedy Trust, was brilliant all the way through! An experience I won’t forget in a hurry, bucket list ticked!”

Our competition winner, Emily, had a great time and enjoyed pulling the raffle winners during the prize draw. She said, “It was an amazing night, and all the comedians were all amazing and funny”.

So far, the event has raised a total of £2,072.42, with more money due to come in from the performers’ sponsorship. Keep an eye out on Facebook for the final total and for pictures of the night.

A big thank you again to our wonderful performers, Jack Miller, and all of our sponsors.
