Stand Up for Felix Dexter Foundation, Sunday 9 February

Some of the biggest names in UK comedy are coming together this weekend to celebrate the life of the late, great Felix Dexter and raise cash to help the newly formed Felix Dexter Foundation.

Alan Carr, Curtis Walker, Jack Dee, Jocelyn Jee Essien and Eddie Kadi will be among those performing during the event, which is being organised by director Paulette Randall.

Felix, who was born and raised in St Kitts, sadly passed away last October after a three-year battle with multiple myeloma. His will provides for the setting up a fund to help educate underprivileged children in the UK and St Kitts.

Paul Whitehouse, who worked with, and recently dedicated his British Comedy Award to Felix, says: ‘It’s wonderful that so many comedians and friends are joining to remember Felix and raise money for the charity set up in his name. Nice. Nice.’

Stand Up for the Felix Dexter Foundation will be held at The Eventim Apollo Hammersmith in London on Sunday 9 February. Ticket prices start from £21 and can be purchased here
