Comedy with a conservation twist.

Biologist and comedian Simon Watt ("all the wit and passion of the best comedians" - Chortle) is dedicated to raising the profile of some of Mother Nature's more aesthetically challenged children. The panda gets too much attention. He is joined by top comics who want to share their love of endangered but hideous species. We made the blobfish famous and are now building up to the first International Ugly Animal Day. Special guests will include Neil Delamer, Sophie Duker, Elf Lyons, Alasdair Beckett-King, George Egg, and more.

Underbelly's Big Brain Tumour Benefit

Brain tumours are the biggest cancer killer for children and adults under 40 and increased funding for research is desperately needed. All box office income will go straight to The Brain Tumour Charity AND Underbelly will match this amount as a donation to the charity, doubling the amount that we can raise on the night.
