Softwire Comedy Night 2016
24 March 2016, by Amy Wood
Last week Softwire held another of their amazing charity comedy nights, to raise money for Mind and it was a resounding success. We had five of our own Softwire employees trying their hands at comedy, which saw everyone having a laugh with plenty of terrible in jokes. This was followed by sketches and stand-up from four amazing comedians – Hari Sriskantha, Ian Smith, Amir Khoshsokhan and Nico Yearwood – who put on a hell of a show. Softwire resident comedian Hari Sriskantha also kindly compered the evening.
The rest of the night involved silly balloon popping games and a best joke competition, for which the prize was pieing one of our three beloved morale officers. Although our staff were given the option of two prior morale offices Jamie and Gergana and our current standing officer Laura, there was a surprise nomination and Gareth our old morale officer ended up taking a double pie to the face. All silliness aside we actually managed to raise £1011 for Mind, which was a great effort from everyone involved. You can see how happy Gareth was about being pied and watch all of the pieing action here.
