I am sorry this is late, it is my 4th attempt to contribute. Thank you to all the commedianimals who have helped me to laugh during this horrible time. Thanks also to those who will keep us all laughing in the future.

It was a bloody honour being the first England (South) Rep of the LCA > working with some of the most dedicated, hardworking people in comedy. They’re actually making stuff happen and ~ despite a few growing pains ~ they’re having a very positive impact on the industry. So good cheer and good health! P.s. When I was 6 years old, I once shoved a seed into my urethra because I was agitated.

I have gained so much joy from attending live comedy gigs over the years. I think it a privilege to be able to give back, even a little, to such a cause as this.. Thank you.

My name is Jill Petts. I am a middle manager in the Civil Service, member of the National Trust and proud mother of an inspirational comedian. I shall have live comedy in this life or the next (preferably in this life, though or else can I have my tenner back?). Wonderful, much needed campaign. Good luck.

In support of my sister-in-law, Nicola Houghton, and all the other genius, hard-working comics out there who have been so badly hit by this shitshow.

I just dont know how any of us would survive without the immense amount of content that those comedians outputting through social media, YouTube or straining as hell Covid safe gigs produced. And the podcasts. And man this must suck so much for people new on the circuit. Lots of love, thanks for the laughs and for maintaining that this shitty existence a spectacle worth poking fun at.

I love comedy. It's been hit hard, and it's time to pay a little something back to make sure this wonderful artform - live comedy - survives. Praying for the day that we all walk free...walk into a comedy venue...pay our money, and enjoy talented artists at work.
