A glittering line-up of comics, including Rob Brydon, Dara Ó Briain, Harry Enfield, Omid Djalili, Rachel Parris and Angus Deayton, will come together for one night only at the London Palladium in support of Royal Brompton & Harefield Hospitals Charity.
100 Hearts, A Night Of Comedy will play at the prestigious venue on Wednesday 13 February 2019. Other confirmed performers on the evening include James Acaster, Jess Robinson, Sindhu Vee, Michael Fenton Stevens, Helen Atkinson Wood, Ahir Shah and Ken Cheng.
All the money raised at 100 Hearts, A Night Of Comedy, will support the Charity’s two priority projects – The Harefield Transplant and Cystic Fibrosis ‘Back in the Driving Seat’ Appeals.
The Transplant Appeal is supporting Harefield’s world-class Transplant Programme, by funding Organ Care Systems which enable donated organs to come from further away and arrive in better condition when compared with traditional methods.
The Cystic Fibrosis Appeal is funding the development of a digital platform that is being created by Royal Brompton’s Cystic Fibrosis Department. This pioneering platform will enable people with cystic fibrosis to have more control over their care and lives.
Dara Ó Briain said of the show: “Heart and lung disease can affect any of us and Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals are the largest specialist heart and lung centre in the UK. So, I wanted to do something that would raise them a big chunk of money and while I have been told that laughter is actually the best medicine, I promise to leave the treatments to the doctors and nurses, this time.”
Tickets go on sale Friday 2 November from the London Palladium website.
