Stand Up for Palestine – a comedy night with the fabulous Mark Thomas, the wonderfully anarchic Nick Revell, the hilarious and biting Esther Manito and a dark humour sketch, “Gaza Taxi Driver”, by Ahmed Masoud, performed by James El-Sharawy.

This is a benefit night to raise funds for two hard to fund charities which play an important role in helping Palestinians on the ground and also getting their voices heard: Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP) and Bristol Palestine Film Festival (BPFF).
