Expect each show to have at least three 20 minute headline slots, plus tonnes more acts coming on and doing a turn, plus live games, skits, pastiches and specials, big diva song moments, and all capped off with a virtual after party at which special guest comedians will play "back at mine" sets of their favourite tracks. Make space in your living room schedules because this is gonna be history in action, and it's gonna be bloody hilarious.

There will also be video submissions from comedies newest acts! We're hosting a competition with prizes. if you've been doing comedy for less than three years submit a video that is no longer than 2 minutes with the theme "Back To Normal", and we will play some of our favourites like an advert break on the night, and share the Top 5 on The Clapham Grand's social media. Email them to us here: Grandreliefshow@gmail.com

Also we want the general public to submit 30-60 second clips about "I love live comedy" or "The best live comedy show I ever saw was...." or why live comedy has helped or changed your life. Give a shout out to your favourite night or club and send it in!

INTERACTIVE FRONT ROW TICKETS BABY...

You can watch FOR FREE, or - if you want the acts to see your face, why not buy a Zoom ticket for the price of a pint and join the virtual front row which will appear on a big screen in front of the comedians on the night! All funds raised go directly to Britain's endangered live comedy scene, more info below. Depending on government guidelines there might even be very limited physical tickets, but don't count on it, tuck in on Zoom for now and keep your eyes peeled for upgrades - your support is everything so grab a place in the cosmos quick.

WHY WE ARE DOING IT

The future of live comedy is hanging by a thread, and there is currently no trust (like the Live Music Venues Trust) to organise and distribute funds. Therefore we are asking our comedians to nominate their favourite comedy clubs or promoters, as well as supporting our friends and family at Top Secret Comedy Club, Gilded Balloon, The Stand, The Glee Club, Pleasance and The Clapham Grand itself. We will be working closely with Save Live Comedy and listening to their advice, and all acts are performing for absolutely free.

The Clapham Grand are also giving their iconic venue space and expertise for free for these events. The South London variety theatre has been serving up comedy for 120 years and the stage was once the home of a little known act called Charlie Chaplin. In recent years Clapham Grand was where the first series of Taskmaster was recorded, Mo Gilligan Hosted four sell out shows here, Russel Howard performs his work-in-progress shows and just before the virus Clapham Grand started using their attic bar as a comedy club space 'Upstairs At The Grand'.

There obviously are some costs involved with putting on shows this big, and they will be dealt with minimally, efficiently, and transparently.

Following June's hugely successful 'Grand Aid' led by Frank Turner and Billy Bragg, a live stream marathon that raised over £20,000, now it's time for a bit of "Grand Relief" to help #SaveLiveComedy and you're all invited! Spread the word, invite people, watch this space, keep the conversation flowing, be nice, and get ready to laugh your socks off at home!

We need YOU to make this work on a truly tremendous scale, and raise a handsome sum of money to support some of Britain's comedy clubs and promoters that are currently going through hard times, as well as showcasing performers and collectives. We're dreaming big and with YOUR support we can DO THIS! All money raised will go to brilliant deserving recipients and in return your support will be rewarded with this amazing, outlandish, iconic, once-in-a-lifetime, truly marvellous online comedy treasure trove!

TOGETHER LET'S HELP SAVE LIVE COMEDY!
