Awesome Comedy Show

If you live in London (or can get here somehow) I am hosting an amazing comedy show in aid of women's rights org Object. It's May 19th and the details are these...

Comedy Night in aid of OBJECT.

Helen Keen - Star of "This Is Rocket Science" (Edinburgh 2208 & 2009). A regular writer and performer on BBC Radio 1's late-night comedy show "The Milk Run". Helen has also written for the last two series of BBC Radio 4's "The Now Show" and various Channel 4 TV shows including "The Friday Night Project". Winner Channel 4 New Comedy Writers Award 2005.

Miriam Elia - Writer and star of "A Series of Psychotic Episodes" on BBC7 and winner of BBC New Talent's "Show me the funny" competition. "A glimpse into the future of British comedy" The Guardian.

Jessica Fostekew - "a highly charged motormouth of a comedian, working though her brilliant and brutal material at such a pace that you think she'll run out long before the time is up. Thankfully, she doesn't, and we're treated to twenty odd minutes of raucous stand-up." Three Weeks

Shelley Cooper - Edinburgh Festival regular since 2003. "Not to be missed" The Scotsman. Star of BBC3s Killing Time and BBC Radio 4's Storyman.

And introducing Ruby Basara. Hot new talent. You saw her here first!!

Hosted by feminist comedienne Kate Smurthwaite - just back from warming up for Omid Djalili. "Reminiscent of an excitable, slightly irresponsible head girl luring impressionable fourth formers into some illicit fun. You'd have to be made of granite not to warm to her.' National Student, `A powerhouse of observational wit' The Spectator, `Comedy that cuts through the crap' Three Weeks, `There is very little for me to write here. Honestly. Nothing at all. It really was that good.' Broadway Baby.
