News: All Star Benefit Gig In Aid Of Mental Healthy Charity Marks Anniversary Of Robin Williams' Death

Saturday August 11th is the fifth anniversary of Robin Williams' passing. To mark the anniversary promoters Dec Munro [Test Tube Comedy, Angel Comedy] and Isabelle Adam [ACMS, Comedy Club 4 Kids] are putting on a major benefit gig at the Edinburgh Fringe.

The money raised will be split equally between Mind, and SAMH (the Scottish Association for Mental Health). Both charities provide advice and support for those experiencing a mental health problem, or caring for those who are; both campaign to improve mental health services, raise awareness and promote understanding. Both organisations are vital, and we are proud to support their work.

Nish Kumar will host the show and he will be joined by Sofie Hagen, Rosie Jones, Laura Lexx, Tom Walker, Andrew O’Neill and pro-wrestler Colt Cabana. Paul ‘Silky' White will serenade the audience with bespoke songs as they take their seats.
