About Kids Company:
Kids Company was founded by Camila Batmanghelidjh in 1996. They provide practical, emotional and educational support to vulnerable inner-city children.
Their services support 36,000 children and young people across London and Bristol, including the most deprived and at risk whose parents are unable to care for them due to their own practical and emotional challenges. For many, the roles of adult and child are reversed and, despite profound love, both struggle to survive.
These exceptionally vulnerable children not only negotiate significant challenges in their family homes, they also face immense threat within their neighbourhoods. Often they are exposed to relentless violence, some are forced into working as drug couriers or prostitutes, and many experience chronic abuse.
They provide a safe, caring, family environment where support is tailored to the needs of each individual. Their services and support empower children who have experienced enormous challenges to lead positive and fulfilling lives. Despite great difficulties, the children they work with are hugely courageous and embrace the support they offer.
In 2007 Kids Company was awarded the Liberty and JUSTICE Human Rights Award. In 2010 they were selected as a ‘Child Poverty Champion’ by the End Child Poverty project for their success in enabling children to achieve their full potential.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Smart-suited comedian from North London who has appeared on Mock The Week, Have I Got News For You and 8 Out Of 10 Cats to name but a few.
The past few years have been exceptional for Michael, performing sold-out shows in arenas all over the world. His 2012 tour, Showtime, was the biggest selling comedy tour in the world in 2012, playing to over 640,000 people including a record-breaking ten night residency at London’s O2 Arena, matching the pop-superstar Rihanna’s 2011 record.
Michael has also released three best-selling DVDs: 2008’s Live and Laughing, was the biggest selling UK debut stand-up DVD of its time, Hello Wembley, which in 2009 became the fastest-selling UK stand-up DVD of all time - a record it still holds, and 2012’s Showtime, which beat its competitors to the Christmas Number One spot.
'One of the most gifted performers to emerge in years.' - The Evening Standard.
Michael McIntyre tour dates
Alan Carr is one of Britain's most successful and treasured comedians. His unique humour and effortless stage presence have earned him a catalogue of awards. His hit Channel 4 chat show Alan Carr: Chatty Man is now firmly established as one of the nation's favourite entertainment TV shows. Alan's unique warm hospitality and infectious personality have won audiences hearts, ensuring he is the perfect chat show host as he invites his A-list guests to a tipple of their choice, to let their hair down (which they often do), and most importantly have fun.
Alan Carr tour dates
Winner of the City Life Comedian of the Year and a finalist in both the Mercury Comedy Awards and the Daily Telegraph Open Mic Awards. A strong stage presence and life experience make him a comedian who is not afraid to take chances, and this is reflected in his status as one of the best comics in the country.
'One of the most popular comedians in the country' (Mail on Sunday)
'This is a treat' (The Times)
'Hottest stand-up going’ Daily Telegraph
'A fabulously gifted comedian' (The Mirror)
'One of this country's biggest comedy stars' (Time Out).
John Bishop tour dates
The quick-witted, cheeky and wryly observant comedian first became known when he was appearing as a regular on BBC2's Mock The Week. He has gone on to write and star in his own BBC Three show, Russell Howard's Good News. The hit show is BBC Three's most successful entertainment show ever, drawing in 5 million viewers a week.
Russell is also one of the UK's most successful live comedians having played to more than 200,000 fans over twenty five nights on his last UK arena tour Right Here, Right Now, including three sold out shows at the London O2 Arena.
'Energetic, uncynical and, most importantly, very funny' (The Times).
Russell Howard tour dates
This Swansea-born radio and TV presenter got his big break in 2001 with a series of short comedy monologues, 'Marion And Geoff', which were shown on BBC2. This was followed by further TV appearances as Keith Barret, presenter of a spoof chat show and, perhaps most notably, Bryn West in the sitcom 'Gavin & Stacey'. His stand-up shows have been equally successful, with sold out shows around the UK during 2008.
