Friends of the Earth has announced the comedy event of the year, and Frost Magazine has tickets to giveaway:
COMEDY STARS JOSH WIDDECOMBE, TONY LAW & DANNY BHOY JOIN ED BYRNE AND STEWART LEE
FOR LAUGH OR THE POLAR BEAR GETS IT 2012
Thursday 22nd November, Hammersmith Apollo
Tickets: 0844 2491000 www.eventim.co.uk
Three superb new acts have joined the stellar line-up at this year’s Laugh or the Polar Bear Gets It (a Friends of the Earth benefit gig), Hammersmith Apollo 22nd November. Set to be another year of world-saving japery, the line-up now includes: Josh Widdicombe- star of The Last Leg (C4) and Live at the Apollo (BBC One), Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee Tony Law and Danny Bhoy, as featured on The Late Show with David Letterman & Live at the Apollo (BBC One).
Already on-board to create another show-stopping event are Stewart Lee, Ed Byrne, Dan Antopolski and Francesca Martinez, with more exciting names to be released.
Tim Minchin said of last year’s show: “This show’s titular threat is deadly serious. If you don’t come and laugh, we have an actual metaphorical polar bear and it is seriously going to get ‘it’. Luckily, we are not worried, because (a) the line-up is excellent, and (b) we don’t know what it’s a metafor phor.”
In its third year, Laugh or the Polar Bear Gets It will not only provide you with a whale of a time, but will go a long way in supporting Friends of the Earth’s mission to promote a positive relationship between people and the environment.
Friends of the Earth says:
“For more than 40 years we’ve seen that the wellbeing of people and planet go hand in hand – and it’s been the inspiration for our campaigns. Together with thousands of people like you we’ve secured safer food and water, defended wildlife and natural habitats, championed the move to clean energy and acted to keep our climate stable. Be a Friend of the Earth – see things differently. For further information visit www.foe.co.uk.
Please note that unfortunately due to a previous illness and the consequent rescheduling of tour dates Beardyman will no longer be able to perform on the line up. He is a huge fan of Laugh or the Polar Bear Gets It and continues to lend his support to Friends of the Earth and its causes.”
