LAUGH ALLOTMENT

Comedy Fundraiser for the Elm Village Urban Growth Programme

Tuesday 22nd October.

Urban Growth is a practical and therapeutic work-based recovery programme based in Camden Town and run by the charity, “Jobs in Mind” (St James’s House). Sadly, its site was vandalised in September, leaving plants and structures destroyed. “Laugh Allotment” hopes to raise money to help cover costs of the damage, as well as raise awareness of this fantastic charity and programme. Entry is free, but please give generously on the night for this important cause.

SARAH BENNETTO/JONATHAN HEARN

SARAH BENNETTO & JONATHAN HEARN: DOUBLE BILL OF EDINBURGH FRINGE SHOWS! 

Time: 19:30 (doors open 19:00). Tickets: FREE! (donations at the back). 

Not one but two Edinburgh Fringe shows on tonight! Sarah Bennetto’s stand up and characters followed by Jonathan Hearn’s self-deprecating solo show.

**SARAH BENNETTO FRITTERS AWAY AN HOUR OF YOUR LIFE…MMM, FRITTERS**
A new stand-up and character solo show by the London-based Melbourne comedian and host of Storytellers’ Club. *‘Self-deprecating, dark, honest and genuinely funny. One of the most enjoyable and original shows I’ve seen this year. It had me laughing out loud more times than I could count. A solid hour of laughs, it culminates in a truly epic finale’ ★★★★.5 (Advertiser, Adelaide). ‘A sophisticated mix of stand-up and character comedy, Bennetto succeeds in harnessing the full power of an instinctive comedic mind’ ★★★★ (Fest, Edinburgh). ★★★★ (RipItUp.com.au).*

**JONATHAN HEARN: ALWAYS JON, NEVER JOFF**
Jonathan Hearn has been performing stand-up comedy for nearly 6 years. At the 2013 Edinburgh Fringe he performed his first solo show, and everyone who saw it smiled and laughed – one of them even said “It was better than the Marcus Brigstocke show we saw just before it”. This is even better.

*”plenty of charisma, and a glint of silliness” – Steve Bennett, Chortle

“Jonathan Hearn’s bricolage of comic fancies had me laughing from start to finish. One of the silliest, funniest, inventivest hours of nit-wittery I’ve seen.” – Trevor Lock

“Old-school meets weird school. Jonathan Hearn is hilarious.” – David Mills

“Hearn has an unconventional but intelligent style.” – Katie Chapman, Three Weeks

“Jon has a tightness and sleekness to his act. Carefully constructed jokes and unbreakable professionalism in any situation.” – Poppy Hillstead, The Proud Archivist

“Very clever wordplay.” – The LP Project

“87% of the time [his] hair looks amazing.” – Jen Wells*
