Seven very brave Sheffield business people took on the challenge to raise money for Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity by delivering their own 10 minutes of funny to a sold out audience at Sheffield Memorial Hall. The ‘talent’, with no previous stand-up experience, were mentored for 5 weeks by Alfie Moore – himself a Sheffield lad and patron of the charity – before taking to the stage to perform at the Funny Business evening on 30th November.
Dr Kash Purohit, Consultant Clinical Oncologist in Sheffield – dubbed as Kash Milligan by Alfie for his truly ‘off the wall’ comedy style, was chosen as the winner but all the contestants put in superb performances and raised over £30,000 for the charity.
All monies will go to help improve the lives of people living with and beyond cancer. Funny Business has now raised over £160,000 to help people living with cancer in the Sheffield region. You can still donate by texting FUNI17 £5 to 70070.
