Stand Spotlight - Animals

About Stand Spotlight - Animals

For each Stand Spotlight we invite some of the best up and coming comedians to shine a light on a different topic, tying in with our charity theme. Be the first to see this brand new material – and your ticket money goes to a good cause!

This show will centre on the topic ‘Animals’. Ticket money will be donated to the Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home, a safe haven to stray animals since 1883, the home still rescues over a thousand lost or abandoned dogs and cats every year. Every single dog and cat is treated with great respect and kindness, and the home's excellent facilities are matched by the services of Edinburgh University’s Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies which provides on-going treatment and advice. Our policy of never turning a dog or cat away can only continue with your help. We rely on the generosity of the public and our loyal supporters to fund the high quality care we give Edinburgh’s unwanted animals.

Please join us to support brand new comedy from the stars of tomorrow and raise money for the animals!

With Michael Hollingworth, Thomas Foster, Krystal Evans, MC Hammersmith, John Aggasild, Joseph Goss and your host Ross McLelland!

To ensure the maximum amount of money reaches the charity, we are not taking advance payments for this show. Tickets are £5 and can be reserved by calling our Box Office on 0131 558 7272.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Stand Spotlight - Animals are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
