Jo Brand, said: “Once again I’m really looking forward to being part of the Mencap Big Comedy Special. I have worked with adults and children with a learning disability since the age of 17 and it’s a charity close to my heart.”

The Mencap Big Comedy Special brings together some of the UK’s best-loved comedians for a fundraising night of side-splitting entertainment. All proceeds from the event will support Mencap’s continued work supporting people with a learning disability, their families and carers. Mencap campaign for equal rights, challenge attitudes and prejudices, and support people with a learning disability to live their lives the way they want to.

Mencap is the leading voice of learning disability since establishing in 1946; their vital work is only possible with the funding from their extensive fundraising programs such as The Big Comedy Special.

Mark McGoogan, Director of Fundraising, at Mencap, said: “This will be a truly fantastic event and we’re so grateful to all the comedians taking part who have given up their time to help raise money for a really great cause.”
