The Hull Comedy Festival Charity Extravaganza

Wey Hey – Live comedy… Dance Off’s… Quizzes…Keith Chegwin… it could only mean one thing; The Hull Comedy Festival Charity Extravaganza.

Held at the Quality Royal Hotel and sponsored by First Hull Trains, the evening which was held last Friday raised money for several charities including Dove House Hospice, Save the Children and Cash for Kids (thanks to some highly addictive darts, bingo and Wii golf games).

Throughout the night as the drinks flowed and Cheggars for a second year running caused mayhem with his crazy challenges; our very own George Griggs came a close second in the Hula Hoop Challenge (the crisp variety) and Katie Sharlotte got pipped at the post in the Where’s Cheggers Challenge, but we’re still proud so well done guys!

After an excellent 3 course meal stand up comedian Bill Woolland had the audience in fits of laughter with his quick wit, hilarious tales and banter with a guest party who he likened to Girls Aloud – the menopausal years.

The night continued with more games and quizzes with concert tickets, Premiership League football tickets, 1st class rail tickets and a luxury weekend break to London all being won courtesy of Viking FM and First Hull Trains.

The night was a huge success with fantastic food, great company, and a fun time for all.

The Hull Comedy Festival and eskimosoup team would like to thank everyone that attended, First Hull Trains for their support and a special thanks to Keith Chegwin for being a superb host for the evening once again.

We’re already looking forward to 2010’s Charity Extravaganza and hope to see you all there!
