Spiky Mike joins the bill for Giggle Aid

A Nottingham comedy legend is ‘really excited’ to star in the city’s newest comedy night Giggle Aid Nottingham, in aid of the British Red Cross.

‘Spiky’ Mike Bottomley, who owns and runs the hugely popular Funhouse comedy clubs across the Midlands, will be part of a top lineup of six comedians performing at The Approach, Nottingham, on Sunday, December 6, to raise funds for the Red Cross.

Advance tickets are £15, available to buy throughout from the venue, off Friar Lane, Nottingham, via www.redcross.org.uk/giggleaidnotts or on 0115 852 8016.

Spiky Mike said: “I’m really excited to be involved in such a prestigious event, with one of the absolute best headline acts in the country - especially as it’s for such a good cause.’

Spiky Mike joins an all-star lineup of TV and radio favourites, including Paul ‘Sinnerman’ Sinha, best known from ITV’s The Chase, Perrier-award winning Christian Reilly and Scotswoman of the Year Janey Godley, Junior Simpson and Sully O’Sullivan.

Funds raised on the night will help the Red Cross bring relief, comfort and hope to vulnerable people facing devastating crises across the UK and overseas. Their lifesaving and life-changing work includes responding to disasters the world over, caring for people in Nottingham after a hospital stay, and supporting people fleeing from conflict.

Local Red Cross fundraiser Alex Gadsby said: “We’re delighted to welcome absolute comedy legend Spiky Mike to our amazing bill of comedians. It’s going to be a brilliant night – we can’t wait!”
