Softwire Comedy Night 2015
11 February 2015, by Amy Wood
A couple of weeks ago Softwire hosted their third annual charity comedy night and it was a rip-roaring success! In an attempt to brighten up blue Monday (the saddest day of the year apparently) and raise awareness of mental health issues, some of Softwire’s very brave staff took to the stage to try their hands at stand-up comedy.
We put on quite a show, which was followed by performances from three professional comedians – a great way to end the evening. This year featured the very witty Hari Sriskantha, hilarious pedant Matt Rees and the ever wonderful Bec Hill. It was a great chance for our amateur comedians to relax post performance.
The final act of the evening was a pie-ing of our Managing Director Zoe, who unfortunately lost a vote between her and two of our other directors, but in the processed helped us raise even money for mind. Between tickets, the voting and the professional comedians very kindly donating their fess we raised over £1000 for Mind. A great effort for a great cause! Well done Softwire!
