Join us for a charity comedy night at Richmond Theatre in aid of SeeAbility featuring Jo Brand, Sally Phillips, Adam Hills and Seann Walsh.

Enjoy an evening of feel-good comedy on Monday 30th October at The Richmond Theatre. SeeAbility is a 200-year-old national charity with strong local roots, here for people with learning disabilities and sight loss, many of whom have sight loss.

The event will be introduced by Lord Chris Holmes of Richmond MBE, Britain's most successful Paralympic swimmer and regular campaigner for inclusion and accessibility.

I’ve been advocating for SeeAbility’s work to improve sight tests and eye care for children and adults with learning disabilities in Parliament. It will be a real pleasure to introduce the charity’s work to new audiences in Richmond.

There's going to be loads of fantastic sets from comedians including:

Jo Brand - Headline

Long established as one of the UK’s best female comics, Jo Brand started her entertainment career with a move from psychiatric nursing to the alternative comedy stand-up scene. Jo also co-created, co-wrote and co-starred in the BBC Four sitcom 'Getting On' for which she won the 2011 Best TV Comedy Actress BAFTA award.

Adam Hills - Compère

Adam Hills has achieved international acclaim as one of the world’s best stand up comics. His combination of positive uplifting comedy and rampant spontaneity have seen him receive a swag of awards, glowing reviews and a legion of fans around the planet.

‘Hills delivers stand up so effortlessly brilliant you wonder why some comedians even get out of bed’ – The Guardian

Sally Phillips

Seann Walsh

Charming and charismatic, Seann Walsh is the most frighteningly precocious talent to emerge from the UK comedy circuit. Within two years of his first comedy performance in 2007, Seann became the winner of the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year. TV appearances have included Michael MacIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, BBC 2’s Mock the Week and Live at the Apollo. 

Sarah Louise Keegan

A comedian with eyes on optometry, Sarah is an optometrist and staff development consultant, turned professional actress and comedienne. Her YouTube videos are where her love of eyes fuses with musical comedy in songs like ‘The Presbyopia Song’ and ‘I love Me Pies’ - written and performed by Sarah.

Mark Simmons
