Andy-Slaughter-and-Arthur-SSadiq Khan, Mayor of London:
'What a great idea. What a great night. I have delivered speeches to audiences big and small all over the world but have never been as nervous as I was before going on stage to be a stand-up comic at Tooting’s Stand up for Labour event. It was a childhood dream come true. The crowds were very generous in laughing at my jokes - although I think I will stick to my day job there are professional comics willing to Stand up for Labour.'

Andy Slaughter MP: 'The mix of comedy and politics is a refreshing way of bringing people into campaigning on local issues. People had a great time with top comedy from Arthur Smith and others, but also heard about the threat to our local hospitals and raised funds to fight the Coalition Government.'

Adam Bloom: 'Stand up For Labour was a perfect mix of comedy & politics. There is nothing worse than doing comedy to an audience who aren't there for comedy and itcertainly wasn't one of those nights. A joy.'

Ken Livingstone: 'I loved it. It was a great evening and such a fun change from the usual fund raising.'
