A charity comedy show is returning this year, featuring award-winning comedians fundraising for an autism charity.
What can I expect from the show?
The show’s lineup includes: host Matt Richardson, Rhod Gilbert, Rosie Jones, Jen Brister, Cally Beaton, Milton Jones, Paul Sinha, Josh Jones and Joe Wells.
All the money raised will support the charity’s work and ensure autistic people get the support they need to live happy and fulfilled lives.
The charity aims to change attitudes towards autism, improve autistic people’s lives and create a society that works better for autistic people.
That’s great! Tell me more.
The show is hosted by award-winning comedian Matt Richardson. Matt and his younger brother, Alex, are ambassadors for the charity whose cause is close to their hearts.
Matt and his brother are autistic and have become closer as a result of working with the charity.
“There was so much about the way he saw the world that I didn't know, until we started working together. It's been really eye opening and I feel much closer to him because of it,” Matt said.
To support the National Autism Society, buy tickets for the comedy show.
