Comedians Line Up For Teenage Cancer Trust Night

Posted: Updated:

When it comes to money-raising charity concerts with stellar line-ups, it's hard to beat the annual series of gigs held at the Royal Albert Hall by the Teenage Cancer Trust.

This year's headliners have included Pulp, Paul McCartney and Jessie J - and on Tuesday 3 April, Florence And The Machine take to the stage. But not before this year's all-star comedy night on Monday 2 April.

Hosted by Jason Manford - a long-term Teenage Cancer Trust supporter - the evening of comedy also stars Tim Minchin, Jimmy Carr, Jon Richardson, Stewart Francis and Dave Spikey.

The concert series has been running for over 11 years now, and has so far raised more than £14million for the Teenage Cancer Trust. The driving force behind the concerts has been The Who frontman Roger Daltrey. “Every year my team and I work really hard to make these concerts for Teenage Cancer Trust something special," he says. "This year is no exception and the line up of artists donating their time and talent is incredible - I hope there's something for everyone."

Well, with a line-up ranging from Minchin to Manford, we think he's right. Tickets range from £35-50 and there are some still available. So if you want to help a good cause, have a laugh and enjoy a great night out in one of the world's most beautiful venues - and why wouldn't you? - get your tickets from the Royal Albert Hall website or by calling 0845 401 5030.

And in the meantime, enjoy some backstage moments from last year's comedy night:
