Stand up for Labour - Central London
Stand up for Labour returns to the Seven Dials Club (42 Earlham Street, London WC2H 9LA) with a fantastic variety bill, including music, poetry, comedy and magic!
The night is a fundraiser for a tour of England, Scotland and Wales and acts on the night include:
Maddy Carty, a former BRIT school student whose soulful voice and socially conscious lyrics set her apart as a singer/songwriter. Maddy's debut album 'Come and Get it' received rave reviews and support from Radio 1xtra, BBC6 and BBC London among many others. Her haunting vocals form part of the reggae single 'Take the Stage', which is now released on itunes.
Matt Abbott, former singer of Skint and Demoralised, Matt’s poignant verse has made him a popular performer at political benefits and he hosted a star-studded Stand up for Labour event in his native Wakefield before Christmas. Matt received five star reviews for his recent run at the Edinburgh Festival for his hour-long show 'Two Little Ducks'.
For more than 30 years, Ian Saville has been presenting his Marxist Magic and ventriloquism. Whereas David Copperfield is content with little tricks like making the Statue of Liberty disappear, Ian aims at the much more ambitious goal of making International Capitalism and exploitation disappear. This may be an ambitious goal, but Ian has succeeded in mesmerising and bringing laughter to Stand up for Labour audiences in London, Doncaster and Saltburn-by-the-Sea.
Joe Wells is one of the best young political comedians on the comedy circuit, Joe has toured with Alexei Sayle, appeared on Amnesty International's 'Human TV' and writes for TV's 'The Revolution Will Be Televised'. He was opening act for Stand up for Labour's first ever gig in 2012 and has since performed for Labour audiences all over the country.
The night is hosted by Crispin Flintoff, who set up Stand up for Labour in 2012 and has now organised over 200 events that have raised over £150,000 for CLPs in England, Scotland and Wales.
