Stand Up For The Stroke Association

As part of our Chuckle Tuesday’s Blog this week we’ve decided to showcase our hilarious time with a lovely group of Stroke Survivors from Stroke Association North West.

Over six weeks The Comedy Trust’s fabulously funny workshop tutors Brendan Riley and Cameron Jones worked alongside a group of even funnier participants to curate their very own stand-up comedy routines in aid of the Stroke Associations national #MakeMayPurple campaign to raise funds for the organisation. All of which culminated in an energy and laughter packed performance at 81 Renshaw in May.

It's been a delight to work alongside our local stroke survivors, seeing them grow from strength to strength during each and every session. To go through such a devastating condition in their lives but shine brightly finding their voices and expressing their views in a unique and fun way. We're very proud to be a part of that process.

The night not only raised funds for the organisation but enabled the group to shine a light on Stroke as a condition and how it impacts their lives. We can't wait to work alongside the Stroke Association team again!

Take a peek at what they got up to during their time with us:
