Stand-up for orangutans - join us for OrangAid 2011!


14 November 2011 (Mon)





On Monday 14th November, comedy fans will be able to join SOS for a fantastic evening of stand-up. Held at the Manchester Comedy Store, this will be our fifth OrangAid to date.

As always, the show boasts an impressive line-up. Confirmed acts include Chris Ramsey, a 2011 Fosters Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee and regular guest on 8 Out Of 10 Cats, Justin Moorhouse, star ofPhoenix Nights and Jason Cook of BBC Radio 4's Happiness HQ, plus Martin Mor, Dave Johns, Gary Morris and more names to be announced.

Chris Ramsey says: "It'll be a great night, in a fantastic venue for a very deserving cause. Orangutans are amazing creatures. Someone is bound to sing King of the Swingers... I will leave early if no one does."

Jason Cook says: "I thought I was getting a free orangutan. That's what they said: ‘Do a gig for the orangutan', so I thought it was the fee. I've signed the contract so there is no getting out of it now. The bill is great, and the Store is such a fun venue. What can fans expect from the night? Lots of jokes, great comics, some nudity (one of these is a lie)."

By buying a ticket to OrangAid, not only will you be guaranteed a great evening of entertainment from some of the country's best stand-ups, you will also be helping us to protect orangutans, their forests and their future.

All proceeds raised by the event will go to SOS, supporting orangutan conservation projects in Sumatra. Sumatran orangutans are critically endangered and without urgent action could be the first Great Ape species to become extinct.
