The Mighty Boy Comedy Night took place at the Underbelly Festival Venue on the Southbank on Wednesday 5th June 2019. Several of the UK’s favourite comedians joined us for the night – Rory Bremner, Ronni Ancona, Lewis Macleod, Armstrong & Miller, Hal Cruttenden and Trevor Feelgood. Many friends gathered for drinks and food and an hour and a half of fantastic comedy was had by all. We are extremely grateful to everyone who gave up their precious time and energy to help support The Silas Pullen Fund and The Brain Tumour Charity. Thank you.
Why a comedy night? Silas loved to laugh. He had the most contagious giggle that would set everyone off. He was always telling jokes too and would even be testing his jokes on the anaesthetists and surgeons as they put him under for his numerous surgeries. So somehow a comedy night seemed a rather apt way to remember him and raise money and ties in with SMILE.
The event raised close to £18,000 for the charity and everyone had a fabulous time. For many it was their first time at one of our fundraisers, allowing us to reach a wider audience and increase awareness about brain tumours.
