CHARITY SHOW in aid of YORK ROAD PROJECT
Jon Richardson, Seann Walsh, Pete Firman, Danny Buckler
SUNDAY 10th APRIL
SECOMBE THEATRE, SUTTON
Star of ‘8 out of 10 Cats’, ‘Live At The Apollo’, ‘Have I Got News For You’ and almost any television comedy show – JON RICHARDSON is coming to Sutton for a special charity comedy night.
Hosted by the Secombe Theatre in Sutton this night will see Jon and three of his best friends perform in aid of York Road Project – a charity tackling homelessness in Surrey.
The Project itself was started many years ago by a number of passionate individuals offering sandwiches and soup to people 'sleeping rough'. This developed into a 'winter watch' project supported by Shelter and provided emergency accommodation over the winter period.
Eventually the York Road Project was formed in 2001 and was registered with The Charity Commission. In accommodation leased and refurbished by Woking Borough Council at 1 York Road, the Project now operates services all through the year.
Jon will be bringing the kind of comedy that has had him nominated and winning comedy awards, acclaim and his own documentary series as well as the hearts of Britain’s comedy fans.
Joining Jon is SEANN WALSH – Charming and charismatic, a natural motor-mouth, Brighton’s Seann Walsh is the most frighteningly precocious talent to emerge from the UK comedy circuit in ages.
As seen on Mock, Cocks and Cats and anything else on current TV – this is an exclusive invitation to see Seann live!
Also on the bill is comedy magician PETE FIRMAN. Pete is one of the most in-demand comedians and magicians working in television. Pete Firman writes and performs in magic shows ‘Monkey Magic’ (FIVE), ‘Dirty Tricks’ and ‘Derren Brown’s 3D Magic Spectacular’ (Channel 4),‘The Secret World of Magic’ (Sky One).
At home performing magic or comedy – making guest appearances on mainstream comedy showcases as well as specialist magic show Pete is the perfect way to close our opening night in Sutton.
“He is the funniest and by far the most accomplished performer on the New Magic scene…funnier than most comedians and more magical than Dumbledore on a good day. This guy is a complete star” Time
Rounding off the bill is the all-time favourite act of promoters Laughing Coyote. Host of touring magic and chat show, ‘DANNY BUCKLER’s MAGIC SALON’, as seen on ‘The Secret World of Magic’ and ’50 Greatest Magic Tricks’ DANNY BUCKLER is a comedian, racoonteur, improviser, story teller and occasional magician – but tonight will be all about the comedy. A hopeless romantic with a love of the theatrical his tales of uncharacteristic derring-do, brushes with stardom and journeys of hapless love can go on forever.
