Bridport Comedian Stands Up To Cancer

Tom Glover

12:40pm 24th October 2014

Stand-up comedian Tom Glover from Bridport is joining forces with Channel 4 to raise money for research which helped save his Nan's life.

Tom who has just returned from a successful stint at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe is hosting the show Stand Up to Cancer at the Bridport Arts Centre tonight (Friday 24th October at 8pm.)

Tom who's Nan Iris was first diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 52, survived and twenty years later says "who would have thought I would live to see great grandchildren". 

Tom first burst on to the stand up scene in 2010 with his stories about South-west life and has built up a large following in the area.

 One in three people in the UK will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lives and Tom was very happy to be involved in something that raises a laugh and money at the same time.

Tickets are £7 (£5 for concessions) and for more details call Bridport Arts Centre on 01308 427183 or go to
