'Funny to a Degree' - Disability History Month Charity Comedy Night

'Funny to a Degree' - Disability History Month Charity Comedy Night

Monday 18 December 2017, 7pm - 11pm

Location: Komedia in Brighton

The University is marking Disability History Month (22 November to 22 December) with a fun-filled comedy night at the Komedia in Brighton.

'Funny to a Degree' takes place on Monday 18 December from 7pm (show time starts at 7.30pm) and features a range of fantastic performers, many of whom have personal experience of living with a disability.

The theme for this year’s Disability History Month is ‘Disability and Art’, and the evening is part of national celebrations of the achievements of people with disabilities in this field.

Raising money for local charity, Possability People (previously The Fed), the line-up features MC Julie Jepson, Romina Puma, Don Biswas, Aidan Goatley, Rosie Jones, Laura Lexx and more to be confirmed!

Romina Puma said, "For me working in the arts means I can express myself and being disabled I can raise awareness through my comedy."

As well the incredible acts, raffle tickets will be on sale on the night to raise funds for Possability People. Prizes include: £100 meal vouchers for Stanmer House; a mid-week stay for two in sea-facing themed room at Hotel Pelirocco; a dual-ride on The Brighton Zip and a cut and blow-dry at Headmasters, with many more prizes to be confirmed.
