Laughing in the Face of Adversity

The cream of Northern stand up comes to York this week in a show of solidarity for beleaguered York City fans.

Sunday 10 February at The York brewery, Toft green will see a benefit show for YCFC Supporters Trust and will feature a great line up of Northern mirth makers. Headlining is Yorkshire based Wearsider Mark Rough performing his 1000th show. His co-headliner on the night is Anthony J Brown, runner up in the prestigious BBC Newcomer Of The Year 2000. They will be ably supported by a whole manner of brilliant comics all eager to lend their support to the cause (Full line up and details at the bottom of the page). Admission is 5. And all proceeds will go to the Trust fighting fund. The fun starts at 8.00pm;there will be raffles, collections and joke competitions to help swell the coffers.

Award winning comic Mark Rough told us "There is one common denominator with all of the comedians performing on that night, a love of football and a desire to help all we can, clubs that may be struggling. It struck me when I read about the problems York City fans were having, that we as performers and fans have a responsibility to help. I contacted the trust and they were more than happy for us to put together this show"

Mark a Sunderland season ticket holder has in the past-organised similar events for Hull City and Chesterfield joked "The way things are going I may be organising something similar for my own club!"

York City fans and comedy fans are urged to get along on the night for a great nights entertainment in aid of a real cause.

Trust member Pete Brandon said, "This shows what can happen when real football fans get together for the good of the game we all love"
