Vegan comedy night in London
On 18 September, 2019, a line-up of vegan comedians take to the stage in a vegan venue to raise money for international development charity, Child.org.
The Funny Thing About Vegans at Karamel in North London will see Carl Donnelly, Chris Stokes and Adele Cliff give up their time and talent in support of Child.org’s evidence-based projects to improve the lives of children in some of the world’s poorest communities.
This all-vegan line-up in an always all-vegan venue is believed to be the first of its kind in London.
The event is organised by Robb Masters, a participant of Child.org-affiliated “Charity Fast-Track 2019” (a year-long training course on all aspects of the charity sector) and organiser of London Vegan Meetup (a free social group for vegan and the vegan-curious, and the current home of FGV-founded London Vegan Drinks). This is his second fundraiser for Child.org, after he and a group of friends embarked on the “Sukuma Wiki Challenge” earlier in the year – spending a week eating just five plant-based ingredients.
Tickets for The Funny Thing About Vegans are £10 online here, or £15 on the door.
Who are the comedians on the night?
Carl Donnelly has twice been nominated for the Edinburgh Comedy Award, won a variety of other awards, appeared on a selection of TV shows (Mock The Week, Russell Howard’s Good News, etc.) and travelled the world performing at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal, The Melbourne International Comedy Festival, The New Zealand Comedy Festival, and pretty much every other comedy festival there is. He is co-host of the Two Vegan Idiots and Babysitting Trevor podcasts.
Chris Stokes is an award- winning comedian who “was a comedian, then a van driver and now I’m a comedian again”. He has supported Milton Jones on UK tours (Milton Jones is Out There, and Milton Jones and the Temple of Daft) as well as appearing on BBC Three, Dave, BBC Radio 4 and BBC Radio 5Live – and performing at an Annual General Meeting of The Vegan Society.
Chris has been described by The New Statesman as “One impressive comic”, and the British Comedy Guide as “Laid back, disarming and very funny”.
Adele Cliff’s jokes have been featured in The Top 10 Jokes Of The Fringe for four years running (2016-2019). With regular appearances on the BBC, Funny Women describes Adele Cliff as “consistently intelligent, witty, and (most importantly) very funny!”, while The Huffington Post called her a “must-see” act.
