Comedy for Depression 2013

Over 800 people packed the Union Chapel in Islington on April 17 to watch a magnificent comedy line up and a surprise guest.

In the first half Romesh Ranganathan compered Seann Walsh, Hal Cruttenden, and surprise guest Jack Carroll who had appeared on Britain's Got Talent on the previous Saturday. Emer O'Neill, Depression Alliance's Chief Executive, gave a rousing account of the Friends in Need project, for which the acts were raising funds before the interval. In the second half Stewart Lee and Jo Brand. The event raised nearly £11,000 and people who attended were asking for next year's dates! We'll let you know as soon as we do.
