‘Shake with Laughter’ – a Parkinson’s comedy fundraiser featuring Rob Deering and Tim Vine – will be performed at London’s iconic Comedy Store on 16 October


On 16 October The Comedy Store, London, UK, will play host to the sixth edition of the Parkinson’s fundraiser ‘Shake with Laughter’.

The annual comedy show, from which all proceeds go to charity Parkinson’s UK, will feature comedians including Rob Deering, Gary Delaney, Lucy Porter, Paul Mayhew-Archer and Tim Vine.

‘Shake with Laughter’ launched in London in 2012 and has since been held in Manchester and Newcastle, with plans to debut in Glasgow next month.

Rob Deering, whose father has Parkinson’s, is a longstanding fundraiser for Parkinson’s UK. The popular stand-up has participated in marathons, comedy events and celebrity quiz shows including Pointless and The Weakest Link. He is currently on track to reach his £100,000 fundraising target over 10 years.
