We're delighted to announce that Kevin Bridges, long term supporter of Teenage Cancer Trust and one of our official Ambassadors, will return to host this year's #TeenageCancerGigs comedy night.
Kevin will guide the audience through an exciting evening of comedy, continuing the long tradition of the cream of British comedy joining forces for a unique and unforgettable night of laughs.
Joining Kevin for a night of laughter are British comedy heavyweights: John Bishop, Kerry Godliman, Romesh Ranganathan, and Tommy Tiernan.
Kevin Bridges is a committed Teenage Cancer Trust Ambassador and Regional Patron for the West of Scotland, and last performed the comedy night of the #TeenageCancerGigs in 2017. Kevin cemented his position as one of the UK's most successful comedians last year when he was crowned the UK's 'Ticket of the Year 2018' at the SSE Hydro by Ticketmaster fans. Kevin said:
The fantastic work Teenage Cancer Trust have done over the years to provide specialist care and support to young people with cancer across the UK is incredible and it is a great honour to be asked to return to host the comedy night at the Royal Albert Hall.
We thrilled to have John Bishop joining us once more, having performed at #TeenageCancerGigs in 2011, 2014 and 2016. John's achieved huge success with his own comedy, entertainment and documentary shows and we know his #TeenageCancerGigs performance will be fantastic.
Charmingly straight-talking and quick-witted Kerry Godliman will also be taking to the Royal Albert Hall Stage and we can't wait! Kerry is both an incredibly talented comedian and a phenomenal actor, whose acting talents have seen her receive critical acclaim.
The last few years have been incredible for Romesh Ranganathan, with his various series receiving critical acclaim and making him a household name. It's been a non-stop for one of the industry's hardest working comedians, with Romesh also embarking on his career in America. We're beyond excited to have Romesh join us!
Fearless force of energy Tommy Tiernan has been working as a stand-up comedian for 23 years and currently moonlights as a chat show host and newspaper columnist. Tommy is one of the few comics to take his audience on a genuine emotional journey - we're sure his #TeenageCancerGigs performance will be a high intensity, high octane, no-holds-barred roller coaster ride.
