Since Jeremy Corbyn put his name forward as a potential leader, hundreds of thousands of people have joined the Labour Party. Jeremy’s honest, straight-talking politics has captured the public’s imagination. He has, however, faced daily attacks from some of the media and his political opponents. And he has responded with courage and dignity.
To show support for Jeremy’s campaign to transform the way politics is conducted, a stellar line up of comedians, singers and poets will be performing a special show compered by superstar housewife Barbara Nice.
The full line-up for the night includes:
Barbara Nice, actress (‘Phoenix Nights’, ‘Coronation Street’, ‘Max and Paddy’s Road to Nowhere’), radio sitcom star (‘Comedy Showcase’)
Mark Steel, comedian (‘The Mark Steel Lectures’, ‘The Mark Steel Lecture’), TV panelist (‘Question Time’, ‘QI’, Have I Got News for You’, ‘Mock the Week’, ‘Room 101’), radio panelist (‘The News Quiz’, ‘Loose Ends’), author (‘Reasons to be Cheerful’), regular columnist in ‘The Independent’.
Jeremy Hardy, comedian (former ‘Perrier Award’ winner), actor (‘Blackadder Goes Forth’), TV panelist (‘QI’, ‘Mock the Week’), radio panelist (‘The News Quiz’, ‘I’m sorry I Haven’t a Clue’, ‘Jeremy Hardy Speaks to the Nation’)
