Come on you reds!

It’s going to be an all red day in Manchester on 16th March and no, we’re not talking about football.

Published on March 1st 2007.

Come on you reds!

It’s Red Nose day! And in support of RND07, Manchester is hosting a world record breaking event. ‘Stand Up and be Counted’ is a 24 hour stand up comedy event at The Comedy Lounge at Opus in the Printworks.

The aim is to get 180 comedians and comedy performers, including some famous faces from the North West Comedy Circuit, to perform a minimum of 8 minutes of Comedy each under one roof… all within 24hours!

There will also be laughter galore at the Printworks’ Odeon Cinema when it hosts the third North West Comedy Classics screening for Red Nose Day. The nation will vote for their favourite episodes from a collection of classic comedy, with the winners being shown at a special screening at the Printworks’ Odeon cinema.

If you want to get involved with this year’s local events please email info@standupbecounted.co.uk

From the money raised over the last ten Red Nose Days, Comic Relief has spent over £10.2 Million on almost 500 projects in the North West.

Comedians can register at myspace.com/the24hourcomedyevent to contribute towards another Comic Relief record.
