ED BYRNE, JON SNOW AND MITCH WINEHOUSE... HAVE I GOT FUNNY NEWS FOR YOU!
Stars to be amongst the participants in a one-off comic event which aims to raise awareness and funds for New Horizon Youth Centre
It's not often news broadcasters are associated with gut-wrenching, side-splitting laughter, but come Monday 14th May, the Prince Edward Theatre in Soho will do just that!
Channel 4 News' Jon Snow will take to the stage for the second year running to host a night of comedy and all-star entertainment, teaming-up with comedian Ed Byrne and other acts, including father of the late Amy Winehouse, Mitch Winehouse to raise funds for New Horizon Youth Centre (NHYC) - a charity that helps young, homeless and vulnerable Londoners.
The event is sure to be a sell out as the nation's comedy lovers unite to raise funds and awareness for NHYC. Tickets for this one-off event are on sale now, priced between £10 and £40.
Last year 1000 people flocked to the event which saw Byrne and Snow team - up with a line-up that included top comics Al Murray and Lucy Porter, and this year is set to be even better. Alongside a list of other well-known participants, yet to be announced, the trio will perform with the talented youths who are part of the New Horizon Youth Centre. The event really is set to be a 'cackling' great night!
Comedian Ed Byrne is keeping tight-lipped about his material, but comments: "I find it hard to believe that in a city like London, there are still so many young homeless people struggling to make something of their futures. This performance is a great chance to see some of Britain's favourite comics share the stage with young talent. I urge everyone to buy a ticket and have a laugh while helping to support those who need it most."
New Horizon Youth Centre, chaired by Jon Snow, is a charity that works with disadvantaged young people to help them gain skills and knowledge to improve their life chances. The centre provides a calm and well-organised secure base, offering both educational and recreational facilities for young people. Based in Kings Cross, London, the Youth Centre's doors are open seven days a week and sees up to 2,500 young people a year.
Jon Snow added: "We are all immensely proud of the talented young people, who, with the guidance from NHYC, have managed to address some of the issues they face. For the young homeless people performing at the theatre, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to share the stage with esteemed names in the world of entertainment and a chance to share their talents with an engaged audience."
