What’s On: The Big Charity Comedy Show featuring comedians Michael McIntyre and Omid Djalili

Comedian Michael McIntyre will star alongside the hilarious Omid Djalili at The Big Charity Comedy Show on December 9.

Head to the Grand Hall for the last chance to see Michael McIntyre perform before he embarks on his sold-out Big World Tour overseas.

The show is hosted by Wimbledon’s Polka Patron and the funds raised from the special will go towards Polka Theatre for Children’s redevelopment appeal. It still needs 400K to reach its £7.5m target.

It will be the first major building done since the charity first opened their doors in 1979.

Omid Djalili said: “As a Patron for Polka it’s a pleasure bringing together my comedian friends to raise some much needed funds for the redevelopment of the building.

“We will have a lot of fun on the night and audiences can expect to go home with a belly full of laughs and the feel-good-factor of supporting a valued local treasure – Polka Theatre.”

Standard tickets are priced at £66 and the VIP tickets are set at £150.

The limited VIP tickets will allow guests to join Omid Djalili and other comedy starts for a drinks reception after the show and include premium front row seats and a complimentary glass of wine.

Polka is the UK’s leading theatre for children younger than 12 and the redevelopment will allow them to keep their position.

A new Adventure Theatre specially designed for children under 5 and a creative learning studio specially for children with sensory needs will be added in the improvements.

This night of comedy will be an amazing chance to see some of the nation’s most treasured comedians and but support the charity that allowed 90,000 children to explore the magic of theatre.
