'Will joke for food'

Desperate move for starving comics

'Will work for food' is the sign of the starving and wretched everywhere – and now hard-up comedians have turned to making the same desperate offer.

Comedy fans attending a new monthly night in London do not have to pay an admission fee – but instead must bring along food to feed the poverty-stricken comics.

Lee Kern, who is organising the Hungry Comedians Comedy Club, said: 'I’ve assembled some of the best and most degraded comics on the circuit who are happy to just perform for food.

'Our lives are truly awful. Some of us live in flats that look like set pieces from the film Se7en. Others in rooms that look like a torture scene from Saw.

'So please - bring some nutrition, vitamins and vitality into our lives in this first, inaugural "harvest festival" for comics.'

Kern, who starred in Channel 4's prank TV show Celebrity Bedlam, said those attending the show at London's Canal Cafe Theatre should bring 'tins of beans, pasta, crisps and cakes' adding that: 'Fresh fruit and veg IS appreciated, but tinned goods are preferable cos they last longer.'

The new club launches on November 29.
