Charity Stand Up Comedy For Ukraine

24 April @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm


If you’ve watched the news and been horrified by the ongoing troubles in Ukraine and wanted to find a way to support – come down to Smoke And Mirrors in Altrincham on 24th April for a fun filled night of comedy for a good cause.

Elena Comedy is a brand new Manchester charity comedy night brought to you by Chaz Hine, Sam Anibaba and Levy.

Ukraine’s president Volodymyr Zelensky himself is a comedian turned politician turned unexpected wartime President so the least we can do as comedians is show our support – needless to say, we’d all be useless on the field anyway.

With all ticket money going directly to Care Internationals DEC Humanitarian Appeal, providing food, water, hygiene, cash and well-being support to displaced people of Ukraine, you can trust every penny is going to a good cause. Funds are also being matched to make sure double up on our efforts and really make an impact!

Opening up the show is a staple of the North West Comedy Circuit – Dom Hatton-Woods described by Jamali Maddox as ‘hilarious from start to end, take him on the road from anytime.’

Next up we have the rising star of the Salford University comedy scene, Lottie Blacklock.

Closing the show is the brilliant Mike Keenan – ‘Rude, Bold and Clever.. A joy to watch’-Shoecake Comedy

We have plenty of support acts in an inclusive, diverse and talented lineup that will be bound to have you in stitches.

I don’t know why you’re still reading. Stop this, buy tickets, and come down for some good times!
