An Evening with Joe Lycett & Friends – The Mosquito Wing Part II will raise money exclusively for the Lord Mayor of Birmingham’s Charity; a charity that supports non-profit organisations and charities across Birmingham.
The show is a follow-up to last year’s charity event which began as a joke when Joe asked Lord Mayor Councillor Yvonne Mosquito, to cut the ribbon at an official ceremony for the opening of his new kitchen extension.
After publicly raffling tickets to attend the official ceremony, and with some help from his celebrity friends including comedian Katherine Ryan, BBC Midlands Today Nick Owen and Lloyd Griffith Soccer AM presenter, Joe raised thousands of pounds for the Lord Mayor’s Charity.
Last year’s event was fun and unique, and this year’s event promises to be just as exciting. Councillor Mosquito, now Deputy Lord Mayor said 'Joe Lycett captures the spirit of Birmingham. We are very excited to see what laughs and adventures he has in store for us this year with the comedy show An Evening With Joe Lycett & Friends – The Mosquito Wing Part II.'
