Teenage Cancer Trust have revealed further acts set to headline this year’s comedy night during the annual fundraising concert series at the Royal Albert Hall in 2020, which take place from March 23rd to March 29th. Acts/artists may be subject to change.

Joining previously announced host John Bishop on the bill are some of the UK’s finest comedians; Alan Carr, Paul Chowdhry, Russell Kane, Suzi Ruffell and Seann Walsh.

With 16 series of Channel 4’s ‘Chatty Man’ under his belt, Alan Carr has become one of Britain’s most successful and treasured comedians. Alan’s unique sense of humour and effortless stage presence has won a multitude of awards including the publicly voted 2015 NTA and a prestigious BAFTA in 2013. 

Paul Chowdhry is a multi-award-winning stand-up comedian, actor, and writer. His ‘Live Innit’ stand-up tour received two nationwide extensions, including five nights at Hammersmith Apollo and a sold-out show at Wembley Arena, making Paul the first British Asian stand-up to sell out the 10,000-seater venue.

Russell Kane is best known for the BBC Sounds podcast, ‘Evil Genius’ which has become a flagship show and the best performing podcast on the platform. He recently finished his sell-out UK & Ireland tour ‘The Fast and The Curious’.

Regarded as one of the best up-and-coming acts, Suzi Ruffell won ‘Best Club Comic’ at the 2019 Chortle Awards. Suzi has also appeared on Live at the Apollo, Mock The Week, Roast Battle, Ultimate Worrier, Hypothetical, Stand Up Central and Comedy Central at the Comedy Store.

Charming, charismatic and a natural motor mouth, Seann Walsh is the most precocious talent to emerge from the UK comedy circuit in years. A mainstay on British television Walsh has appeared on Virtually Famous, The Jonathan Ross Show, Tonight at The London Palladium, Celebrity Juice, 8 Out Of 10 Cats and Live At The Apollo.

2020 marks the 20th year of Teenage Cancer Trust’s phenomenally successful series of music and comedy events at The Royal Albert Hall, which were started by Roger Daltrey CBE, making this year all the more special. The gigs will also help celebrate the 30th anniversary of Teenage Cancer Trust.

Some of the biggest names in entertainment have now raised more than £30 million for Teenage Cancer Trust’s specialist nurses, hospital wards and support teams that help young people through the toughest times of their lives.

Over the past 20 years, audiences at Teenage Cancer Trust’s annual gigs have witnessed some extraordinary, once in a lifetime shows, from Noel Gallagher and Damon Albarn performing together for the first time ever in 2013, Sir Paul McCartney in 2012, plus the likes of Oasis, Muse, Ed Sheeran, Florence + The Machine and many more.

Other headliners previously announced so far are: Stereophonics featuring very special guest Paul Weller (25th March), Groove Armada (26th March), Noel Gallagher’s High-Flying Birds (27th March), The Who (28th March) and Nile Rodgers & Chic (29th March).

Before Teenage Cancer Trust was established in 1990 there was no specialist cancer care for teenagers and young adults. Those aged 13-24 were being treated on adult wards, or in children’s wards, and this could cause additional stress and trauma. Many felt alone and isolated, as it was likely they’d never meet another person their age with cancer.

Today, around half of all young people with cancer are treated on 28 Teenage Cancer Trust wards across the UK, by specialist nurses and youth support teams. Almost every young person with cancer can get support from specialist Teenage Cancer Trust nurses wherever they live.

As Teenage Cancer Trust celebrates 30 years, the charity is focused on driving up survival rates for young People with cancer, championing their needs to ensure they have equal access to vital care and expanding its own services to be there after treatment ends, as young people rebuild their lives after cancer.
