Olver said: “We do stuff in that area where food, comedy and doing good stuff for others meets.

“We’re known most for our January gigs but the world’s gone a little bit crazy right now and I think Belly Laughs At Home could be the antidote to that – for a couple of hours anyway.

“I’m always blown away by people’s generosity at these events and am sure we can raise some money for these great causes whilst having a bit of a laugh at the same time.”

Audience members are being asked to make a donation of at least £4 before watching the gig live, and are also being encouraged to order a takeaway from their favourite Bristol independent business.
