BBC London presenters stand up for Comic Relief 2011

Red Nose Day 2011 takes place on Friday, 18 March - with the nation ready to do something funny for money.

Can you imagine anything worse than doing stand up comedy?

That's the challenge BBC London 94.9's Will Shindler and BBC London TV's Mike Ramsden have both taken and they want your support!

For this year's Red Nose Day appeal they will be performing in front of a paying crowd as part of Stand Up for Comic Relief.

The duo will perform on 11 March at The highlight Comedy Camden at 11 East Yard, Chalk Farm Road, NW1 8AB. Doors open at 1900GMT but shut promptly at 2000GMT.

To book tickets visit www.thehighlight.co.uk or call the box office on 0844 844 0044.

They cost £20 each, plus a £1 booking fee - all of which will go to Comic Relief.

Comic Relief

The aim of Red Nose Day is to have a laugh while raising money which can transform lives across Africa and the UK.

Across the UK your cash can help to provide comfort for isolated older people and help to give young carers their childhoods back. In fact it is likely you are never more than 30 miles from a Comic Relief supported project.

In Africa, your money helps to restore people's sight, to protect families from deadly malaria, to give an education to children whose lives have been torn apart by war, and so much more.

To find out how you can raise money and take part, visit the Red Nose Day 2011 website.
