Lee Martin was tragically killed in a cycling accident in August 2015.
He was my brother.
This event is being put on as an excuse for a load of his family and mates to get together and have a laugh and remember him.
All money raised will go to his daughters to help them out a bit in later life.
I run and book Just the Tonic Comedy Club and will be putting on the best acts I can in a 250 capacity room. As you can see we have Harry Hill already. You might not know spencer Brown, but he is absolutely hilarious. I have a few other comedians that you will have heard of on a 'if I can make it' half promise. If those don't come off, then I will book the best circuit acts I can find.
20% of this money is going ot the VAT man, we can't avoid that. A little bit will go towards comedians train fares / petrol and paying a techie to run the night. The rest goes into the pot. There will also be a chance to chuck some more in a bucket when you realise what a great night you've had.
Please tell anyone who knew Lee. I want it full of people that are there for the right reasons.
I'd like to make this is an annual event
