The Future Perfect Comedy Night with Russell Howard and friends on Wednesday 26th September 2018
THE FUTURE PERFECT COMEDY NIGHT with Russell Howard and friends, Wednesday 26th September at Manchester’s Academy 1, will see a collection of witty treasures take to the stage, all in support of Music & Art therapy. Future Perfect is a community project that encourages the use of art therapy to help people through cancer treatment and mental distress. The project works with local partners in Greater Manchester to create small and large scale fundraising/therapy events in support of the Christies Art, Music and activity programmes.
Comedy tickets are very limited so don’t miss out.
Future Perfects Comedy night will kick start Sonder Festival 2018 with an evening of charitable fun. The festival will take place over 5 days from 26th to 30th September across some of Manchester’s best venues. This year will see well over 200 bands, artists, poets and comedians perform across festival stages. Headliners include the likes of Russell Howard, Mick Ferry, Bang,Bang Romeo, Hands off Gretal, Bad Pollyanna, The Kut, Lilith & the Knight, Chambers, The Moods, The Winachi Tribe, Beth McCarthy and many more...
The arts can help meet major challenges facing health and social care: ageing, long-term conditions, loneliness and mental health. The sudden loss of independence that can come from cancer treatment and severe mental distress, can lead to feelings of loss of self. Whether its lashing paint on a canvas, writing poetry or mastering a musical instrument, expression through art and experiencing art is one of the most satisfying forms of therapy. In encouraging people to awaken the creative within, Future Perfect hopes to remind them that they are not defined by their suffering.
The night is in loving memory of Lee Wyatt, Future Perfects founder, a musician, DJ and artist who lost his battle with Bowel Cancer, aged just 25 years old.
