Comedy event helps hospice

Have your say

THEY say laughter is the best medicine - which is why some of Britain’s best young talent are supporting St Luke’s Hospice with the fourth Sheffield Student Comedy Festival.

Set up by Sheffield University improvised comedy troupe, The Shrimps, it was the UK’s first student comedy festival.

This year’s event, this weekend, is raising money for St Luke’s in Whirlow.

Open to everyone over the age of 18, the festival is a celebration of emerging talent and an opportunity to witness the comedy stars of tomorrow.

Tickets - available at - are £8 for the weekend and £5 for a day.
