Line-up announced for Robin Williams benefit

Fringe fundraiser to remember late US comic

Nish Kumar has been announced as hosting his second Edinburgh Fringe benefit in as many days.

Yesterday he was named as the MC of a Comic Relief Live show on  August 19.

And today it has been revealed that he will be hosting another fundraiser to remember Robin Williams on August 11.

The gig happens on the fifth anniversary of the legendary US comedian taking his own life, and raises money for two mental health charities: Mind in England and Wales, and SAMH in Scotland. 

Also on the bill are Sofie Hagen, Rosie Jones, Laura Lexx, Andrew O’Neill, Tom Walker, Paul 'Silky' White and pro-wrestler Colt Cabana. 

Doors open just before midnight for the gig at Assembly's Gordon Aikman Theatre in George Square. Tickets are available here.
