Treat friends and family to comedy tickets for Christmas while supporting LOROS Hospice too

News

Give your friends and family something to smile about this Christmas by treating them to a ticket for an extra special comedy gig.

Guaranteed to be the perfect gift for that special someone, buy your Laughter at LOROS comedy gig ticket before it sells out.

Following the success of this February’s event, the gig, which is once again taking place at LOROS Hospice, will feature 2014 Comedian of the Year, Jack Campbell.

“I’m very excited to be returning to LOROS,” said Jack.

“I had never performed at a Hospice before and I must admit I was quite scared about coming to LOROS last year but actually, it turned out to be brilliant and great fun.

“The event was run really, really well and it was a sell-out, I was so impressed. It ticked every box.”

Joining Jack will be Birmingham-based stand up, Thomas Rackham and Andrea Hubert, winner of the Best Debut Show Award at the What’s On London Comedy Awards 2015.

In addition, Leicester lad and new dad, Phil Drew, will be returning to his hometown to compere the show, which is part of the annual Leicester Comedy Festival.

“The line-up is really good,” added Jack, who last year compered the show.

“I had loads of fun last year but am really looking forward to doing my own set this time round.

“This really will be a superb night; it’s one of the highlights of the festival.” LOROS Fundraising Co-ordinator Dave Nicklin said after the success of the last show, the team knew they had to do it again at the next festival.

“As well as generating vital funds for LOROS, we also want to dispel certain myths surrounding Hospice care and show that we are a place full of warmth, smiles and laughter,” he added.

“In February, not only did the show encourage comedy lovers to come into the Hospice but it was also filled with staff, volunteers and even patients, all laughing along to the same jokes.

“Tickets to Laughter at LOROS really will make the perfect present this Christmas.”

Laughter at LOROS will be taking place on Friday 17th February. For more information on the show or to buy your tickets visit loros.co.uk/laughter
