Jimmy Carr, Mackenzie Crook, pictured, and Jeremy Hardy are all taking part in the biggest comedy benefit so far announced for the victims of the tsunami disaster.
The 1,110-seat Prince of Wales Theatre, the usual West End home of Mamma Mia, is to be the venue for the Funny Money fundraiser.
The show, in aid of Unicef, takes place on Sunday February 6, and tickets, priced £20 to £45, go on sale next Thursday on 0870 850 9189.
But organisers only have a week to sell the 2,000 tickets, priced £20, available for next Saturday’s show (January 22).
They are now onsale from 0115 989 5555. All proceeds go to the Disaster Emergency Fund. Visit the official website for more details.
A fundraiser at the Comedy Bunker in Ruislip, West London, last night raised £2,500 for the cause – even though host Al Murray was forced to pull out at the last minute.
However, the Pub Landlord has agreed to perform a solo show at the venue on Tuesday (18th), again in aid of tsunami victims.
For £20 tickets, visit the club’s website.
And there are still tickets available for the Oen Night Only benefit at London's Bloomsbury Theatre next Sunday featuring Lee Mack, Richard Herring, Boothby Graffoe, Neil Innes and Lucy Porter. Tickets are available online by clicking here.
