30 July: Stand Up For Satire in support of Index on Censorship

30 July: Stand Up For Satire in support of Index on Censorship

Join stand-up star Al Murray the Pub Landlord and outspoken friends for a top night of comedy in support of international freedom of expression charity Index on Censorship.

With a stellar line-up including the “foully inventive” Frankie Boyle, “razor sharp” Shappi Khorsandi, “truly inspired” Doc Brown, “smart and very funny” Kerry Godliman, “unpredictable” Andrew Maxwell and “delightfully quirky” Grainne Maguire.

Index on Censorship has long championed comedians, cartoonists and others facing threats of persecution, violence and even death. Index provides a platform for the censored to be read, seen and heard – promoting and defending the right to free speech globally. All proceeds from the event will go to support this work.

Satire is a powerful weapon that must be used wisely as anyone who wrote jokes about David Cameron for the last five years can attest. It’s great to be able to help Index do their bit in keeping freedom of expression alive in the UK.” – Al Murray
