Stand Up For Freedom (Amnesty International – Producers For The Secret Policeman’s Ball)

By | Published on Wednesday 31 August 2011

When Ed Byrne is only the very first act of many, you know that you’re in for a good night. Coming from the producers of Amnesty International’s other massive comedy charity event, The Secret Policeman’s Ball, the line-up was going to be nothing other than stellar, with the aforementioned Byrne, Holly Walsh, Mark Watson and David O’Doherty on it, to name but a few. It’s a shame that, with all of these great comics, some are given barely any time before we’re whisked off to another, whilst others seem to be given far too much time; but this is more an indication that I wanted the night to last as long as possible, so hilarious and importantly varied were the performances.        

Venue 150 at EICC, 17 Aug, 9.30pm (12.00am), £16.00 – £18.00, fpp154.
