News: Joel Dommett Crashes The Edinburgh Fringe For Stand Up To Cancer

Comedian Joel Dommett is planning to gatecrash 100 Edinburgh Fringe comedy shows in 24 hours to raise money for Cancer Research.

dommett says: “I’m really excited, but also terrified at the same time, to take on this epic gatecrasher challenge for Stand Up To Cancer. I’m hoping my friends and their wonderful audiences will help me out a bit, and fingers crossed I’ll be able to get around to all 100 shows in time. Who knows what state I’ll be in by the 100th show, but I’ll be reminding everyone that it’s all to raise money for lifesaving research. Surely, any half-asleep visits will be forgiven!”

Dommett's father was recently given the all-clear from prostate cancer. Stand Up To Cancer is a joint fundraising campaign from Cancer Research UK and Channel 4, which raises money to accelerate ground-breaking cancer research .

The Joel Dommett Stand Up To Cancer marathon will start at noon on August 16 and will finish with his own gig – plus friends – at the Pleasance Grand on August 17 at 11am.
