Local mum and Funny Women National Semi Finalist, Harriet Beveridge, will be looking at the highs and lows of parenting at a charity stand up gig on 27th April at the Bath Cricket Club. The evening is in aid of the Forever Friends Appeal’s RUH Cancer Care Campaign and Maggie’s Cancer Centres. This is a sneak peak of her 2014 Edinburgh show.
Followers of www.helpfulhumour.com will know that Harriet explores everything from the best outfits for school mufti day (Tequila Shot Girl), what to bring in for Show and Tell (mummy’s police mug shot) and how to strike up conversation at a baby group (“I‘ll blow Molly’s nose when I think she’s emotionally ready. Right now I think it would be a violation of her personal power don’t you?”). In return she hopes the audience can help her with such conundrums as is it ok to febreze a ten year old? And does seeing the Lego movie really qualify as a good night out? She will leave you crying with laughter and better still, finish early enough to keep the babysitter happy!
Harriet Beveridge has chosen to do this charity gig for a very special reason, she comments: “As my good late friend Nick so eloquently put it: When you’re affluent, successful, have a great marriage and two beautiful children, a diagnosis of terminal cancer really ruins your day. There are three things I promised to do in Nick’s memory: raise money, give blood and lastly and most importantly laugh.”
The comedy show is raising funds for two cancer-related charities; Maggie’s Centres who provide free practical, emotional and social support to those affected by cancer and The Forever Friends Appeal’s RUH Cancer Care Campaign. This campaign aims to raise a minimum of £8.5 million towards the cost of a pioneering new Cancer Centre at the Royal United Hospital in Bath. Taking a holistic approach that is designed to produce a highly beneficial healing environment for patients and their families, the new Centre with transform RUH cancer services and provide the very best care for all our cancer patients and their families.
