Joke's on You, Dementia!

On Thursday 11 March we were joined by some of the UK's top comedians for an evening of side-splitting comedy to put the joke firmly on dementia!

Joke's on You, Dementia! line up

Laughter really is the best medicine!

The evening was hosted by Mock the Week star Hugh Dennis and to headline the night we had Alzheimer’s Society Ambassador and pioneer of the alternative comedy scene, Jo Brand!

BBC Asian Network regular Eshaan Akbar also performed for us. Since starting stand-up in 2014, he has established himself on the comedy circuit performing three sell-out shows at the Edinburgh Fringe and has appeared on Mock the Week and QI.

From the comfort of our sofas, we were joined by Stephen Bailey, star of Takeshi’s Castle and Celebrity Coach Trip, who brought his friendly and open brand of gossipy humour.

And last but by no means least, we enjoyed the hilarious BBC Radio 4 regular Lucy Porter, who is a huge hit up and down the country with her feel-good comedy.

We are delighted to say the evening has raised £36,568 so far!
