One of the most popular comedians in the UK is heading to Bristol to perform in a charity gig in aid of Bristol city centre hospitals.

Nish Kumar is headlining a charity gig at the Bristol Hippodrome on June 16.

The stand-up comedian has achieved global success, winning rave reviews from his three solo shows.

He can also be seen on the small screen in shows including The Kumars, Joel & Nish Vs The World and The Alternative Comedy Experience, along with regular spots on TV panel shows.

Joining Nish on the line-up are Laura Lexx, Kiri Prichard-McLean, Jake Lambert and many other comedy stars.

Fans are in for a hilarious evening, hosted by Bristol comedian Mark Olver.

All the money raised on the night will go to Above & Beyond, the official charity for Bristol city centre hospitals.

Edd Smith, corporate partnerships and community fundraising manager for Above & Beyond, said: "Thanks to Nish and all the comedians who've signed up this promises to be an incredible evening of entertainment.

"Events like this mean we can continue to go above and beyond for Bristol's hospitals and ensure we make a real difference to patients, their families and the staff who treat them."

Last year's event, headlined by Russell Howard, raised more than £100,000.

Funny Bones: Nish Kumar and Friends starts at 7.30pm at the Hippodrome, in St Augustine's Parade.

Tickets, priced £34.55, are available at
