Stand up for Labour - Broxtowe
Stand up for Labour returns to Beeston in a Unite sponsored show, raising funds for Greg Marshall's campaign to win Broxtowe.
Taking place at Beeston Victory Club (Station Road, Beeston NG9 2AW), the night features:
Steve Day, the UK's only deaf comedian, is a familiar voice on Radio 4 and has appeared many times on 'You and Yours'. His intelligent and mischievious sense of humour has gone down a storm at Stand up for Labour shows in Watford, London, Northampton, Stoke, Burton, Wolverhampton, Brighton, Leek, Keele, Yardley, Tamworth, Smethwick, Erdington, Kettering, Mablethorpe, Upton-upon-Severn, Corby, St Albans, Nottingham and Crewe.
Theresa May Cabaret is a relatively new act on the circuit, who has gone down a storm at Stand up for Labour shows in Bournemouth, Manchester, Liverpool, Leek, Ipswich and Theresa May's own constituency, Maidenhead. Her comic burlesque act is hilarious and shocking at the same time.
For more than 30 years, Ian Saville has been presenting his Marxist Magic and ventriloquism. Whereas David Copperfield is content with little tricks like making the Statue of Liberty disappear, Ian aims at the much more ambitious goal of making International Capitalism and exploitation disappear. This may be an ambitious goal, but Ian has succeeded in mesmerising and bringing laughter to Stand up for Labour audiences in London, Bolton, Blackpool, Ipswich, Doncaster and Saltburn-by-the-Sea.
Hosting this incredible line up is Crispin Flintoff, who set up Stand up for Labour and has now organised over 250 shows in six years. Crispin was once a runner-up at the prestigious Hackney Empire New Acts competition and went on to appear on Paramount Comedy Channel’s ‘The World Stands Up’. He has also appeared on ‘Daily Politics’ and ran the ‘#JC4PM’ variety tour.
The evening also features liquid prizes and a raffle.
There are only a limited number of tickets available, costing £10 (if bought before 1 March)/£12 (in advance) and £15 on the door.
