A comedy night in Rugby is sure to be a smile on your face as well as raising funds for charity.

The first of the 2015 Hamplified Comedy and Chilli nights will be held on Friday February 13.

There are four international comedians taking to the stage throughout the night as well as a grand auction and raffle.

Alfie Moore is a distinctive comedian with his niche area as a serving police sergeant. He has three times written and performed his one-man show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. He has also supported Sarah Millican, Russell Kane and Milton Jones on their national comedy tours. His new BBC Radio 4 comedy series ‘It’s a Fair Cop’ broadcast during July 2014 with more to come in 2015.

Matt Green has worked extensively as a comedian, actor and writer for more than a decade, performing on screen, on radio and in venues up and down the UK and across the world.

Unique on the comedy circuit today, El Purnell brings his style of fiesta to the evening. The self-proclaimed “Numero Uno”comic from Ecuador has been entertaining audiences across the UK since 2009.

Back by popular demand, Paul Savage is a great compere and if last year’s event is anything to go by he will have you laughing in between the laughs, guiding you through the evening perfectly.

All profits go to The Matt Hampson Foundation. See www.hamplified.com for more event details, including how to buy tickets.

The Matt Hampson Foundation was set up by former Rugby star Matt Hampson – a highly rated England Under 21 player – who damaged his spinal chord while playing rugby. He is now paralysed from the waist downwards. The foundation was formed in 2011 and to provide advice, support, relief and treatment for anyone suffering serious injury or disability which has arisen from any cause, but in particular from participation in sport.

Doors open at 7pm and tickets are £15 which includes a bowl of chilli.
