A galaxy of comedy stars are coming together for a show to help MND patient and campaigner Gordon Aikman raise money for research into the disease that’s killing him.

- Fred MacAulay (compere)
- Larry Dean
- Susie McCabe
- Gary Little
- Mark Nelson
- Micky Bartlett
- Scott Agnew
“Stand Up Against MND” will be held on Monday 14th March at 7.30pm at the King’s Theatre in Glasgow as part of the city’s International Comedy Festival. Tickets are £21 and available at www.glasgowcomedyfestival.com.
Last year’s show raised around £25,000 for vital research into MND.
MND patient, campaigner and founder of gordonsfightback.com, Gordon Aikman, has set himself a target of raising half a million pounds for MND research. He said:
“I’m delighted that so many amazing comedians are coming together to help fund a cure for MND. Last year’s show raised a bucket load of cash for MND research and I’m confident we can raise even more this year. Every ticket gets us closer to that £500,000 fundraising target.”
Fred MacAulay said:
“The show’s going to be a great laugh for a great cause. Every pound raised is progress towards a cure for this terrible disease, so get your tickets now!”
