A night of stand-up comedy with a conservation twist!

The UGLY ANIMAL PRESERVATION SOCIETY is an evening dedicated to raising the profile of some of Mother Nature’s more aesthetically challenged children. The panda gets too much attention.

Our society needs a mascot, one to rival the cute and cuddly emblems of many charities and organisations. And so I have gathered a terrific line up of comedians who will each champion a different ugly endangered species and at the end of the evening the audience shall vote for what will become our society’s symbol. It is going to be a great night! Money raised goes to charity.
