Dave has announced a new series of stand-up comedy specials in partnership with CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably).
The three-part series, entitled Comedy Against Living Miserably, aims to raise awareness and money for the mental health charity with comics waiving their fee as a donation to the charity.
The series builds upon Dave’s relationship with CALM since last year’s “Be the Mate You’d Want” campaign, where they encouraged viewers to spend the ad time calling or texting a friend.
Hosted by Nish Kumar, the series will star some of the nation’s biggest names in comedy. Each episode will be hosted by a headline act and will feature three leading comedians.
Before taking to the stage, the comedians will discuss their own mental health stories and what it feels like to have a career built on making others laugh when at times they feel low and sad.
Dave’s channel director Luke Hales commented: “The whole Dave team are really proud of the work we do with CALM, we are so glad we have managed to make these three stand-up specials happen as they promise to be brilliantly funny and are for such an important cause.”
