Lagan's Foundation

Stand Up For Lagans

We are seeking 12 brave people who have never done stand-up comedy before to take part in the ultimate challenge of becoming a stand-up comedian for one night only.

Turn comedy into cash for charity!

12 brave people from different North West businesses are embarking on a 4-week crash course in stand-up comedy as a part of a charity fundraising project for Lagan’s Foundation, presented by Laughology! The course will end with them delivering self-penned routines to a packed audience.

They will have been trained by Laughology’s Lead Facilitator and Professional Comedian Kerry Leigh and also supported by Laughology’s Head of People, Sarah Brown.

Each performer will have to overcome their nerves and deliver a five-minute routine to an audience at Real Axe, Dunscar, Bolton on Thursday 30th June, 7:30-10:30pm.

It will be a huge challenge for our performers, none of whom have any stand-up experience beyond cracking a few jokes in the office or down their local. There will undoubtedly be nerves on the night, but we know these will be outweighed by the laughs.

So if you fancy a laugh on a Thursday night and would like to support our budding performers, whilst also giving to an amazing charity, please follow the link below to purchase your tickets. Tickets are priced at £20 and all proceeds will go to Lagan’s Foundation.
