We've arranged a great line up of shows together with live podcast recordings, streamable chat shows and live comedy. People can buy a ticket and be part of the live audience, there's even a virtual beer garden between shows where ticket holders can hang out with acts and ask questions, or you can watch the stream of each show on twitch and donate to Mind to help fundraise for the cause.It's set to be a great weekend of excellent comedy"
