OPENING - ADAM HESS - Adam is a stand-up comedian, actor, TV writer and general cheeky-guy from London. WHAT HAS HE DONE? Fosters Best Newcomer 2015 Nominee*, Live At The Palladium (ITV), Live From The BBC (BBC2), @Elevenish (ITV2) , Count Arthur Strong (BBC1), Staff-writer for Russell Howard's Good News, The Telegraph's Funniest Tweet of 2013
MIDDLE - CHARITY AUCTION - We are doing things slightly different for this show. The middle section will be entirely dedicated to raising lots of money for Breast Cancer Haven. An auction will be held and all proceeds will go straight to this fantastic cause.
About the charity - Your help through the toughest times
A diagnosis of breast cancer can be frightening and the treatment gruelling. Surgery, hair loss, radiation, chemotherapy and medication can all take its toll. Medical treatment is necessary but you will need so much more than this.
That is where we come in.
We offer advice on practical things like money and work, help combatting stress, exhaustion and nausea, advice on healthy eating and exercise. And above all, there will always be someone to talk to about your deepest fears.
CLOSING - Dan Nightingale. Dan is widely regarded as one of the best performers working on the comedy circuit today. Mixing fiendishly accurate observation with energetic characterisations and killer punch lines, his comedy is original, playful, intelligent, poignant and exciting; sometimes ridiculous… but always hilarious.
