I am challenging myself to do something I find difficult. But I know the greater reason being that the work of Big Difference Company in making laughter and smiles available to more people is the antidote needed today, and I believe their effort in making such experiences available to vulnerable people is incredibly valuable.Sponsor Me
My great granddad was a Music Hall comedian called Billy Burton from Coalville circa 1926. I’ve always loved the classic Hollywood stars like Chaplin or Laurel & Hardy which is why I’ve been a film maker for 21 years. I’d just like to see if I could “make em laugh” like Billy Burton and my heroes.Sponsor Me
Howes Percival have entered the stand up challenge every year since its inception. Having joined the firm about a year ago, Gary discovered the risks with being the loudest in the office, when he was immediately signed up to take part this year. Gary is hoping to raise money for a worthwhile cause whilst raising a few laughs. Or, more likely, dying on his arse. Still, people in the office will laugh at him for that, which I suppose counts.Sponsor Me
I agreed to do the Stand Up Challenge because I had a conversation with Geoff where I wasn’t really paying attention and said something like, ‘yeah sure, I’ll do that, sounds great.’ I am slightly terrified but it is for a really good cause so let’s raise some money and hopefully if the jokes are good enough let’s raise the roof too!
I put myself forward for this last July, thinking it was a long way off and that it might be forgotten about, but no such luck! I’m pretty much terrified about the idea of taking to the stage but it’s all for a great cause, Big Difference Company is such a fantastic charity, reaching communities across the city so I’m pleased to be able to support their work.
I’ve always been a bit of a clown, so when I saw this opportunity I knew right away I needed to take it. Facing a fear, living a dream, and raising money for charity? How much more could I ask for!Sponsor Me
