Tzedek’s Comedy Evening 2019

Tzedek’s comedy evening is back! Enjoy a night of thrills, spills and laughter and come together against poverty. One of the best UK Jewish comedians and the host from 2018, Rachel Creeger, is returning and bringing some of the country’s top comedians with her.

The line-up includes Vikki Stone, Glenn Moore, Tez Ilyas, Anil Desai, Al Lubel and Sophie Duker.

All proceeds from the night will go towards Tzedek’s work reducing extreme poverty in disadvantaged communities around the world.

Vikki Stone
"Vikki Stone is magnificent" Time Out
"Musical comedy genius" Absolute Radio

Glenn Moore
"The best showcase of pure joke-writing skill on the Fringe" ★★★★ The Guardian
"A prolific writer of clever, distinctive gags. Brilliantly original punchlines" Chortle
"This is a comedian putting others to shame. A stunningly well-crafted show" ★★★★ The List
"Exquisitely-crafted gags" ★★★★ Evening Standard

Tez Ilyas
"Tez Ilyas’s political stand-up is candyfloss with a razorblade inside: sweet and familiar at first, then shockingly, painfully sharp. It’s the kind of manoeuvre that takes serious talent to pull off." ★★★★ The Telegraph

"Radiantly entertaining." ★★★★ The Times

Anil Desai
"A Tour-de-force of impressions...side-splittingly funny... Desai is ridiculously talented...his ability to change his face, voice and physicality is undeniably astounding… Stardom is beckoning" ★★★★ Edinburgh Guide

"...his mimics are exceptionally good..." Chortle
