Stand up for Clause 4
A fantastic night out at the 7 Dials Club (42 Earlham Street, London WC2H 9LA), two minutes from Covent Garden Station.
Sponsored by the BFAWU (the Baker's Union), the night features:
The Artist Taxi Driver is one of the country's most engaging and prolific video bloggers. His talks to camera in the front of his car have been seen by millions and he was the inspiration behind the Grime single 'Get Shut Down' about Theresa May's Magic Money Tree. He was a speaker at Jeremy Corbyn's first fundraiser in 2015 at The Seven Dials Club and has gone on to speak at Stand up for Labour shows in Brighton, Blackpool, Manchester, Sevenoaks and Chingford (Iain Duncan Smith's constituency).
Joanna Neary is a multi-award-winning comedian, who was nominated for Best Newcomer Comedy Award at Edinburgh Fringe for her first solo comedy show and nominated for Best Show at Dave’s Leicester Comedy Festival in 2016. She specialises in her own highly original character comedy shows, which always include interpretive dance. She has gone down a storm at Stand up for Labour and #JC4PM shows in Brighton.
Patrick Monahan is one of the best banter merchants on the comedy circuit and his act has gone down so well with Labour Party crowds that he was winner of Stand up for Labour’s Act of the year. He also won ITV1’s ‘Show me the Funny’, in which millions tuned in and he won with an audience vote.
Ian Hodson, National President of the BFAWU
Steve Hedley, Assistant General Secretary of the RMT
John McDonnell MP, Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer
The night will also feature liquid prizes, a quiz and a raffle.
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.
A limited number of earlybird tickets are available until 25th August (costing £10). When these have all sold or the date has passed, tickets will cost £12 in advance and £15 on the door.
All proceeds go to the Labour 4 Clause 4 campaign
