The CALM Comedy Club is coming live to Twitter

Want a break from the news? Some mid-afternoon comedy to inspire a LOL or maybe even a ROFL? Well, the CALM Comedy Club - a live streamed comedy series offering big laughs from big names direct to your Twitter feed - is the perfect thing for you.

And what a line up we’ve got:

Monday 27 April Russell Kane

Tuesday 28 April Paul Chowdhry

Wednesday 29 April Dane Baptiste

Thursday 30 April Nigel Ng

Friday 1 May Seann Walsh

Why? Well, as we all try to adjust to life under extended lockdown, we wanted to give you a little light relief. As our CEO Simon Gunning says: “In these uncertain times, CALM’s life-saving services are needed more than ever. We’ve seen a 37% increase in demand for our helpline since stricter lockdown measures were put in place so we want to give people some fun and laughter, but also remind them that we are here should they need us, no matter what.”

Russell Kane, who kicks off the series on Monday, agrees: “We can no longer physically attend a comedy gig, and rightfully so, but we want to help raise spirits and bring some smiles to people’s kitchens or living rooms through #CALMComedyClub. CALM does so much great work through its helpline and webchat service, so it is great to be able to use the power of social media to support this.”
