Spread a Smile Comedy Night

4 Dec

Children’s charity, Spread a Smile return for their third annual Spread a Smile Comedy Night hosted by proud charity ambassador and Comedian Suzi Ruffell. Generously sponsored by Canary Wharf Contractors.

Following on from the success of last year’s event, Suzi Ruffell has curated another fantastic evening of stand-up comedy, featuring a brilliant line up of famously funny faces, including Tom Allen, Rob Beckett, Dinesh Nathan, Maisie Adam, Laura Smyth and Thanyia Moore.


Suzi first discovered Spread a Smile when a friend’s child, Trixie, was in hospital and she was able to see first-hand what a difference the Spread a Smile visits and entertainers made during Trixie’s stay. Since then, Suzi has supported the charity generously, donating her winnings from TV appearances on The Tipping Point and The Weakest Link, and generously organising and hosting the Spread a Smile Comedy Night each year.

We are incredibly grateful to our sponsors at Canary Wharf Contractors and to Suzi and all our fantastic comedians for generously giving up their time and sharing their talents with us.
