On November 4th Labour members, supporters and friends came together to raise funds for next year's fighting fund while having a damn good laugh to boot!
Following our very own Tony Kearon and Brian Johnson from Keele, Knutton, Silverdale and Town Labour we had a star-studded lineup:
Our MC for the evening was Paul Ricketts. His sharp banter and political musings divided the evening's acts but he was so funny we could have had a whole night of him alone!
Our first act was Scott Bennett and he demonstrated why he is known as a comedian/carvery expert - although it seems he has his father to thank for that unusual title. Drawing on the contrast between a working-class Yorkshire upbringing and cosmopolitan London living, Scott had plenty of laughs out of us as the evening warmed up.
Sally Anne Heyward took us through the middle of the evening and gave us a glimpse of why she is said to combine the things you shouldn't like about your best friend's mum, with the sensibilities of Jack the Ripper.
Our final act just about brought the house down with the moral of his final tale - I won't give it away but Steve Day was on fine form indeed, and had us gasping for breath the laughs were coming so thick and fast!
The evening was rounded off with the obligatory Raffle, a game of Heads or Tails and lots and lots of prizes including a dinner in the House of Lords!
KKST branch would like to thank everyone who supported us by coming along on the night, and an especial thanks to Brian and Helen Johnson for organizing the evening.
