We Stand Up Together Interfaith Comedy Show
24th November 7.30pm, the Comedy Store, Manchester
Come and enjoy this unique evening exploring the funny side of faith with comedians from different faith traditions.
The line up has been gathered by Christian comedian and MC Tony Vino, who has run interfaith comedy shows around the country. So come and 'laugh your faith off' with Marilyn Berg (Jewish), Imran Yusuf (Muslim), Sol Bernsetin (Jewish), Revd Allan Finnegan (Christian) and Daliso Chaponda (Baha'i), the world's only international Malawian comedian! This should be a clean show that you could bring your mother too! The guideline to the artists is 'no swearing and no bigoted humour'.
Faith Network for Manchester (FN4M) and the interfaith groups of Greater Manchester have arranged this unique interfaith charity show. All profits will be shared equally between Manchester Women's Aid, Jewish Women's Aid, Saheli (aiding Muslim women) and FN4M.
We would be delighted if you can join us for this unique charity evening of faith comedy. Please invite others who you think will enjoy the evening. We aim to sell out the Comedy Store with people of faith from Greater Manchester!
Tickets from £10, plus booking fee, are available from the Comedy Store Website using either of the links below:
