About Stand Up Against MND

Stellar Scottish stand up Kevin Bridges has just been announced as the host of Stand Up Against MND at the Glasgow King's!

The night is dedicated to the memory of Motor Neurone Disease patient and campaigner Gordon Aikman, who died from the condition last month at the age of 31. Gordon was diagnosed with the terminal, muscle wasting condition at the age of 29 in 2014. Following his diagnosis, he formed the Gordon's Fightback campaign raising over £500,000 for research to help fund a cure for the disease.

Alongside host Kevin Bridges, Stand Up Against MND features:

Des Clarke - 'so funny it's almost painful to watch him perform. Genius in action.' Metro
Fred MacAulay - 'Rib-achingly funny. One of the funniest men alive.' Sunday Times
Susie McCabe - 'Prepare to laugh yourself silly.' Three Weeks
Ray Bradshaw - 'Has a clear comedy gift' Edinburgh Evening News
Elaine Malcolmson - 'Bone-dry and talented…exquisite material.' Edinburgh Evening News
Scott Agnew - 'Peppered with killer gags delivered with deadly accuracy.' Evening Times
Jim Smith - 'An interesting and funny addition to the comedy circuit' Chortle

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Stand Up Against MND are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
