Beat are the UK’s leading charity supporting anyone affected by eating disorders or difficulties with food weight and shape. To celebrate our 25th anniversary in 2014 we’re holding this ComEDy Gala as part of a series of events. Driven by Beat volunteer and stand-up Dave Chawner who speaks about his experience of an eating disorder in his act we’re looking to create a night that’s a little different. The topic of mental health is generally the elephant in the room, an issue that’s ignored or goes unaddressed. When in reality what we need to do is speak, shout from the rooftops and tell people about them. Imagine if I could get people talking about eating disorders. Moreover, imagine if I could get people laughing about it too. Not laughing at it, laughing about it. That would remove the stigma, the fear and make it something that people could openly discuss. If that had existed when I was suffering that would have really helped. Maybe I could have got help sooner.” Dave Chawner Beat provides information and support through Helplines which people can call, text or email, UK wide network of self help and support groups, online support and HelpFinder, an online directory of support services. To find out more visit If you’re worried about yourself or someone you know call 0845 634 1414 or email to contact our Helpline team.  Joining MC Dave Chawner will be the brilliant Katherine Ryan, Patrick Monahan, Juliette Burton, Adam Kay and Nat Luurtsema. Doors open from 6.30pm - Happy hour at the bar 6.30pm to 7.30pm Katherine Ryannatluurtsema11SONY DSCPatrick Monahan 205 x 205

In the guise of L. Vaughan Spencer Neil Mullarkey pays a tongue-in-cheek homage to self-help gurus, lifestyle coaches and motivational speakers. “Don’t Be Needy, Be Succeedy” is a hilarious evening’s entertainment where L. Vaughan Spencer leads his audience on a voyage of self-discovery as they take their first steps to becoming Succeeders© (check out   In L. Vaughan Spencer, Neil Mullarkey has invented a comedy creation to rival the likes of The Pub Landlord and Alan Partridge.  The show has played to great acclaim including a run at the Edinburgh Festival (where it won the Fringe Report Award for Best Satire).  L-Vo (as he likes to be known in a J-Lo kinda way) is also much in demand at corporate conferences in the UK and abroad. Audiences love to see the whole cheesy charade sent up by the cavorting Gangsta Motivator in his pony-tail and rust-coloured suit.   L-Vo's book DON'T BE NEEDY BE SUCCEEDY: THE A TO ZEE OF MOTIVITALITY has been published in UK, USA, Australia and India as well as on Kindle. He has written and performed in instructional videos for LearnDirect (the government's post-school learning service), Yoodoo (a website for people starting their own business), Customer Service TV and starred in the "bumper-breaks" for Nicorette on DAVE, the UKTV channel, as well as featuring in April Fool viral videos for The Economist and Microsoft.   Performing comedy has become just a sideline these days for Neil. He continues to improvise with the Comedy Store Players (recognized by the Guinness World of Records as the world's longest-running comedy troupe in the world with the same core cast; Neil has been with them since they started in October 1985). However he is very busy now working (for real) with leaders and teams, using improv and other theatre techniques to enhance communication and creative skills. His "Improvyourbiz" master-classes are much in demand across the world. So he has decided to make this the last time he will do the full show.   Neil Mullarkey's many credits include Austin Powers movies (Goldmember and International Man of Mystery), I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue, Whose Line Is It Anyway, QI, Have I Got News for You.
