Following last year’s enormous success, professional stand up comics provide an evening of hilarity with a heart!
This year’s event in support of Amnesty International’s Cardiff group is again dedicated to Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe.
Featuring an eclectic selection of superb comics from the professional circuit, compered by the outstanding Clint Edwards (our 2017 host).
