Aisling Return to Ireland Project is organising another annual comedy benefit night to be held on Dec 6th at the Bloomsbury Ballroom, Victoria House, 37-63 Bloomsbury Square, London WC1B. Tickets are £20 and available from
This is the 12th annual charity show organised by Aisling patron Ardal O’Hanlon and Noel Faulkener of the Comedy Café in Shoreditch. This year the venue is being donated free of charge by The Workers Beer Company and Waterford born, London based impresario Vince Power. The Bloomsbury is a new addition to London’s gig scene and is a in the centre of London and is worth visiting to see beautifully restored art deco interior.
Ardal will be the host for the evening and topping the bill will be the most popular man in Britain, Dara O’Briain. In the tradition of previous Aisling shows the rest of the evening will feature the best in Irish comedy.
Ardal O’Hanlon said, “I have been Aisling’s patron for a number of years and fully support the great work they do with vulnerable Irish exiles, the forgotten Irish in fact. We are starting up a befriending scheme at the moment, recruiting volunteers to help with the work linking up with Irish men and women in London reducing their isolation and increasing social contact with the wider community. The scheme will be launched at this years comedy benefit show at the Bloomsbury Ballroom on 6th December. It would be great if people could come along and have a great night and maybe think about helping out with the project too.”
