Stand up for Labour holds an event for Stoke Central CLP at Joiners Square Community Hall (Cornes Street, Stoke-on-Trent ST1 3JA).
The night features three of the best performers on the comedy circuit, who are all committed Labour supporters.
Gráinne Maguire possesses an intelligent but also sometimes geeky outlook on political affairs. Her act has gone down a storm at Stand up for Labour events in England, Scotland and Wales and Gráinne has also featured on ‘Question Time’, ‘Daily Politics’ and many other TV shows.
Doug Segal has been described by Time Out magazine as ‘the UK’s best kept entertainment secret’. His mind-reading act has seen him sell out two UK tours and make numerous TV appearances.
Norman Lovett is one of the most influential comedians in the country, who has developed his own style of comedy since the 1970s. He once warmed up for Punk band ‘The Clash’ and is well known for appearing as ‘Holly’ in cult TV sitcom ‘Red Dwarf’.
The night is hosted by Crispin Flintoff, who set up Stand up for Labour in 2012 as he believed that political events were not inspiring or entertaining enough. He has now organised over 200 shows in England, Scotland and Wales and, in doing so, has inspired more people to get involved in politics as well as raising money for the Labour Party.
The night also features liquid prizes and a raffle.
Advanced tickets cost £12 after 1 June/£15 on the door
