Comedy night in aid of mental health – 27 February 2018
Osborne Cawkwell invites you to an evening of fun and frolics at Sylvia Young Studio’s (the place where they rehearse for Strictly Come Dancing!) on Tuesday 27th February, 6.30 to 8.30pm, to help raise awareness of mental health problems in young people.
We’ve got a cracking line-up of comedy, music, magic, and everything in between, including performances from stand up extraordinaire Carl Donnelly (Mock The Week, Russell Howard’s Good News), the high energy hilarity of Naz Osmanoglu (Live at the Electric, Russell Howard’s Good News and Horrible Histories) and sketch wizards The Awkward Silence (Shortlisted for BBC Writer’s prize. “One of this years best sketch comedy shows” – The New Current). We’ve even got a short talk from diet guru Rachel Kelly, (Mental health campaigner and author of The Happy Kitchen).
ALL this, for the price of FREE!! Yes, you read that correctly. FREE!! We will however, be taking donations via our JustGiving page as well as on the evening. All proceeds will be going to Prince William’s fantastic mental health charity, Heads Together, in order to help support them with all the amazing work they do.
It’s going to be a GREAT night! To book your place, head over to Eventbrite.
Looking forward to seeing you all there!
