We Are Most Amused - Prince's Trust bash set for autumn 2012
The Prince's Trust Comedy Gala takes place at the Royal Albert Hall on 28th November - Rowan Atkinson, Jimmy Carr, Miranda Hart, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Omid Djalili, Patrick Kielty, Dame Edna Everage and more to star. Tickets on sale now
Some events are just right. A perfect storm of acts and dates and locations. One such quasi-meteorological tornado will be sweeping into London at the end of November.
One of the world's best venues, the Royal Albert Hall, will see some of the circuit's most exciting comedy talent assemble in support of one of the nation's favourite causes, The Prince's Trust. And we're not talking up a headliner and few notable supports here - this is a MAJOR collection of funny folk. Huge stars including Jimmy Carr and Miranda Hart headline alongside a rare performance from famously recalcitrant comedy legend Rowan Atkinson. Ben Elton is writing a one-off sketch for the event which also sees appearances from Stephen K Amos, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Omid Djalili, Milton Jones, Patrick Kielty, Helen Lederer and Justin Lee Collins. And Dame Edna Everage. And E4 comedy stars The Midnight Beast. And... you get the picture.
The comedy gala will be the Trust's eleventh gala in total, the first (a rock event) being held back in 1982. To date, the galas have raised nearly £4m for the Prince's Trust. Justin Lee Collins neatly summed up the event's appeal: "I was so lucky to get my break in life, but there are so many young people who fear they'll never get theirs. That's why I support The Prince's Trust. I want young people to know that they can pursue their passions, in the same way that I have." Hard to argue with that.
We Are Most Amused takes place at London's Royal Albert Hall on Wednesday 28th November. We have tickets available now, priced from £40 for Circle seats rising to £125 for the very best stalls and boxes. The cheaper seats are already selling out but even the pricier options work out at just a few quid per comic, so it's still well worth it.
