Bristol comedian Russell Howard will return home for a one-day show in the name of charity.

Funny Bones will raise funds for Above & Beyond, the official charity for Bristol city centre hospitals.

The comedy gala will take place on September 30 at 2.30pm and 7.30pm.

Joining Russell on the line-up are Jon Richardson, Joel Dommett, Stuart Goldsmith, Laura Lexx, Andy Askins and Bristol comedian Mark Olver.

Russell said: “I’m really excited to come back to 
Bristol to help out a charity which supports a fantastic cause.

“Almost everyone in the South West will have a link to the hospitals, whether they have been a patient themselves or a friend or family member has been treated, so it is important 
for me to give something back.”

Tickets, priced £34.55, are available at or on 08448 717627.
