Our second Funny Bones event raised almost £12,000 for Bristol's hospitals.

Funny Bones: Nish Kumar & Friends featured performances from Nish, Jake Lambert, Kiri Pritchard-McLean and many others, including some local Bristol comics.

Hosted by Bristol-based comedian Mark Olver for the second year running, the night at Bristol Hippodrome raised £11,976 from tickets sales and text donations.

Nish Kumar said: “It was a great line up of comedians and I think the audience really enjoyed the show.

“The NHS is a fantastic resource so it was my pleasure to be involved in the event.”

Corporate partnerships and community fundraising manager for Above & Beyond Edd Smith said: “Funny Bones 2019 was another great event with a really special atmosphere. We also get some really positive feedback from it.
