The tour is now in its 5th year and organised by Penny Appeal, an international humanitarian charity who works in over 30 countries worldwide.

This year’s tour proceeds are going to the Forgotten Children campaign which aims to get children in Senegal off the streets and into a safe environment by providing adequate access to healthcare, food and a better education.

The charity has brought seven world class comedians and each evening will consist of a range of them.

When asked about why the event is so important, Fatiha El-Ghorri said, “Being a stand-up comedian is really difficult as a Muslim woman so it’s nice to have inclusive events like this where everyone is welcome to come along and have a good laugh."
