Jo Brand, Steward Lee and Francesca Martinez head up an all-star cast of comedians to tell the Tories where to stick their cuts.

Join the People's Assembly Against Austerity for a night of comedy and politics, a night to get angry, get active and see that tens of thousands are joining an inspiring movement against this joke of a ConDem government. 

 

Taking a shot at austerity on stage will come naturally for the likes of Jo Brand and Mark Steel, who make a living from mercilessly mocking Britain’s elite.

 

Marcus Brigstocke’s latest tour has been dedicated to unmasking the truth behind the Tory’s “big society” catchphrase, while Stewart Lee also took no prisoners in his recent BBC stand-up series.

 

Key People's Assembly campaigner and seriously funny lady Franscesca Martinez will be dishing out her usual hot meals of anti-establishment sass, along with lefty super-comics Jason Manford, Marcus Brigstocke, Shappi Khorsandi, Jeremy Hardy, Jen Brister and Kate Smurthwaite. 

 

Proceeds benefit the People's Assembly Against Austerity, a group dedicated to ending this government's ruthless programme of cuts that threatens to destroy individual lives and essential institutions. Laughter, as the saying goes, is always the best medicine - and in this case, a weapon we can use to strike back.
