INTERACTIVE FRONT ROW TICKETS BABY...

All funds raised go directly to Britain's endangered live comedy scene, more info below. Depending on government guidelines there might even be very limited physical tickets, but don't count on it, tuck in on Zoom for now and keep your eyes peeled for upgrades - your support is everything so grab a place in the cosmos quick.
WHY WE ARE DOING IT
The future of live comedy is hanging by a thread, and there is currently no trust (like the Live Music Venues Trust) to organise and distribute funds. Therefore we are asking our comedians to nominate their favourite comedy clubs or promoters, as well as supporting our friends and family at Top Secret Comedy Club, Gilded Balloon, The Stand, The Glee Club, Pleasance and The Clapham Grand itself. We will be working closely with Save Live Comedy and listening to their advice, and all acts are performing for absolutely free.
The Clapham Grand are also giving their iconic venue space and expertise for free for these events. The South London variety theatre has been serving up comedy for 120 years and the stage was once the home of a little known act called Charlie Chaplin. In recent years Clapham Grand was where the first series of Taskmaster was recorded, Mo Gilligan Hosted four sell out shows here, Russell Howard performs his work-in-progress shows and just before the virus Clapham Grand started using their attic bar as a comedy club space 'Upstairs At The Grand'.
There obviously are some costs involved with putting on shows this big, and they will be dealt with minimally, efficiently, and transparently.
Following June's hugely successful 'Grand Aid' led by Frank Turner and Billy Bragg, a live stream marathon that raised over £20,000, now it's time for a bit of "Grand Relief" to help #SaveLiveComedy and you're all invited! Spread the word, invite people, watch this space, keep the conversation flowing, be nice, and get ready to laugh your socks off at home!
We need YOU to make this work on a truly tremendous scale, and raise a handsome sum of money to support some of Britain's comedy clubs and promoters that are currently going through hard times, as well as showcasing performers and collectives. We're dreaming big and with YOUR support we can DO THIS! All money raised will go to brilliant deserving recipients and in return your support will be rewarded with this amazing, outlandish, iconic, once-in-a-lifetime, truly marvellous online comedy treasure trove!
TOGETHER LET'S HELP SAVE LIVE COMEDY!
