What is Stand Up for Slapstick?
Stand Up For Slapstick began as a means of fundraising the January Festival. After rejections and denials for funding from local authorities, hope was very nearly lost, but Chris Daniels and Graeme Garden took it in their stride and created the first SUFS in 2012. It has since grown into an established yearly event in it’s own right, and now welcomes some of the finest stand up comedians in the UK to Bristol for one night of the year.
So what are you waiting for? Raise money for a wonderful event annnnnddd enjoy a great night out! Get your tickets here!
