On the eve of the Conservative Party conference and in the theatre next door to the conference centre, #JC4PM is putting on an inspiring, entertaining and thought-provoking night in support of Jeremy Corbyn.
After a summer in which the Labour leader has once again proved the popularity of his politics and his anti-austerity policies, it is now time to take the fight to the Tories.
Hosted by Barbara Nice, actress (‘Phoenix Nights’, ‘Coronation Street’, ‘Max and Paddy’s Road to Nowhere’), radio sitcom star (‘Comedy Showcase’), the night features:
Jeremy Hardy, comedian (former ‘Perrier Award’ winner), TV panellist (‘QI’, ‘Mock the Week’).
Francesca Martinez, comedian (‘Live at the Apollo’, ‘The Jonathan Ross Show’), actress (‘Extras’), author (‘What the **** is Normal?’), radio panelist (‘The News Quiz’)
Grace Petrie, singer/songwriter (described by the Guardian as ‘a powerful new songwriting voice’). Has made several appearances on BBC4’s The Now Show and has recorded seven highly acclaimed albums.
Attila the Stockbroker, punk poet (‘Hey Celebrity’, ‘Asylum Seeking Daleks’), author (’35 years of Ranting Verse and Thrash Mandola’), singer (recorded two ‘Peel Sessions’)
Steve Gribbin, comedian, veteran of Red Wedge, 'Saturday Night Live'.
Dane Baptiste, comedian ('Live at the Apollo', Safeword', 'Celebrity Squares', 'Virtually Famous').
James Meadway, economics advisor.
