Stand up comedy show in aid of Yemen to take place in Dublin this weekend

Stand Up to Hunger will take place Friday 26th November in Liberty Hall, with all proceeds from the comedy fundraiser going to UNICEF to deliver lifesaving food, medical supplies and hygiene facilities to those suffering in the humanitarian crisis in Yemen.

Comedian Kevin McGahern and his wife Siobhán organised the gig to help raise awareness for the twenty million people in Yemen who are in need of aid, including twelve million children. More than half of children under five are suffering from acute malnutrition and are in desperate need of lifesaving treatment.

Since 2014, UNICEF have helped to reach more than 4 million children with over 3,000 tonnes of supplies, including emergency food, safe drinking water and health care supplies. Since the conflict began in 2015, an average of six children have been killed every day.

The line-up for Friday’s show includes Tony Cantwell, Emma Doran, Fred Cooke and Julie J. The couple have also organised a charity raffle so those who can’t make the gig can still support the cause.

Prizes up for grabs in the raffle include tickets to see the Book of Mormon, a voucher worth 80 euro for Stella Cinemas and afternoon tea in the K Club. Tickets to see Tommy Tiernan, Dara Ó Briain and Joanne McNally are also included in the prize bundles.

Tickets for the three hour show cost 23.80 euro and can be purchased here.

Raffle tickets start at 7 euro but are available in multipacks with a bigger discount depending on how many you buy. You can purchase two raffle tickets for 10 euro, five for twenty euro, fifteen for 50 euro and thirty-five for 100. Raffle tickets can be purchased here.
