Stand Up For Labour Chiswick: Tony Benn, Shappi Khorsandi, Tony Law, Edward Aczel, Jagdish Sharma
Stand up for Labour returns to the George IV for a special night in which Tony Benn will be speaking.
The comedy will feature Shappi Khorsandi, who has not only appeared on Live at the Apollo but Question Time - twice!
Shappi will be followed by Ed Aczel who always causes a stir with his unconventional act and often appears on radio.
Headlining the night is surreal comic extraordinaire Tony Law. Tony was nominated for the best Edinburgh show at last year's festival.
Jagdish Sharma, who was the UK's first Asian Mayor and is leader of Hounslow Council, will also be speaking at the event.
Compere for the night is Crispin Flintoff, a local member of the Labour Party who is also the founder of Stand up for Labour.

First elected in 1950, a member of every Labour Cabinet from 1964 to 1979, former Party Chairman and now a Visiting Professor of Politics at the London School of Economics - Tony Benn, broadcaster and author, has decided to leave parliament to devote more time to politics! His latest volume of diaries was published in 2002, and 2004 saw the publication of his memoir, Dare To Be A Daniel.
Tony Benn tour dates
An Iranian female stand-up comic who has established herself on the London circuit. A finalist in the BBC New Comedy Awards 2000 and second place winner of the Hackney Empire New Act 2000. As seen as on Live At The Apollo, Friday Night with Jonathan Ross, 8/10 Cats and Have I Got News For You. One of the hottest comedy prospects in the country, Shappi is feisty, flirty and effortlessly funny handling every subject with razor sharp wit.
'One of Britain's brightest young comedians' (The Daily Telegraph)
'Don't be fooled by her innocent looks, she packs a deceptively powerful punch' (The Evening Standard).
Shappi Khorsandi tour dates
Since winning the Glastonbury New Act competition Canadian comedian Tony Law has become one of the most revered stand-ups on the circuit, winning the acclaim of both the critics and his peers. As testament to this Tony was honoured with the prestigious Comics' Choice 'Piece-of-Wood' Award at the 2005 Melbourne Comedy Festival.
The cheerfully absurd humour that Law knocks around into a jazzy, freeform shape has endeared him to both live and TV audiences in the UK and abroad. He's a regular face at the UK's biggest comedy clubs, and a favourite at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
'One of the finest and funniest comics on the circuit... destined for comedy stardom' (Time Out)
'Form-busting and hugely enjoyable' (The Times).
