Legendary Irish comic Dara O’Briain is set to appear at the event. O’Briain, who is well known as the host on the hit BBC panel show Mock The Week and holds the record for the most appearances on the BBC stand-up comedy showcase show Live At The Apollo comments: “No family, and especially no child, should have to face homelessness. We’re going to put on a great night of comedy, and I hope people will come along such an important cause”.

Completing the line-up announcement is the news that Luisa Omielan is set to perform. The comic recently won huge plaudits for her political stand-up show Politics For B*****s.
Shelter is the leading homelessness and housing charity in the UK, working to defend everyone’s right to a safe home.

The money raised at Stand Up For Shelter will help the charity continue their fight to end homelessness.
