Ladies, gentlemen and Samantha Brick – today is a very special day for comedy fans and cancer haters alike, as we kick off the 2012 Big Comedy Gala campaign by announcing our legendary host AND opening sales up! The announcement below gives you all the details you need for now, but keep an eye on this blog, our Facebook page and Twitter (@bigcomedygala) for regular updates, news and of course, comedy. Last year, tickets for The Big C sold out within weeks of going on sale, so don’t delay – get yours now! And as always, keep laughing!
Roy Walker to host the Big Comedy Gala 2012 – tickets on sale now!
We are delighted to announce Roy Walker of ITV’s Catchphrase as the host of this year’s Big Comedy Gala.
Roy was a huge favourite at last year’s sold out event, which was hosted by Ed Byrne and also featured Sarah Millican, Fred Macaulay and The Boy with Tape on his Face.
Those of you who joined us last August at Venue150@EICC will be pleased to hear that we raised £18,433 all of which went directly to Macmillan Cancer Support. This year, our goal is to raise £20,000.
You can book tickets now by calling 0844 847 1639 or buy online at: www.edfringe.com
