Join stand-up star Al Murray the Pub Landlord and a selection of outspoken friends for a night of top comedy in support of international freedom of expression charity Index on Censorship.
Off the back of a sell-out show in 2015, Stand Up for Satire returns with a stellar line-up, with guests including Al Murray, Tim Key, Felicity Ward, Dane Baptiste, Kerry Godliman, Deborah Frances-White, host of the hit podcast The Guilty Feminist, and actor Simon Callow.
“It’s great to be doing Stand Up For Satire again, being able to take the mickey, send politicians up, or just flick V’s at the powerful in general is something we take for granted sometimes in the UK. Satire is the thin end of the wedge, and it needs taking care of. And now I sound this pompous, I hope someone takes the piss out of me!” — Al Murray
“Affectionate, double-edged satire that feels as fresh as ever.”
The Telegraph on Al Murray
“Daring, innovative and ridiculously funny.”
Time Out on Tim Key
The Guardian on Dane Baptiste
Evening Standard on Felicity Ward
“Goes for the jugular, quick wit, frank and engaging.”
The Independent on Kerry Godliman
