The NHS started on 5 July 1948 and to celebrate its 67th birthday there is a comedy night on Sunday at the George IV (185 Chiswick High Road).

There are two fantastic comedians on the bill.

Norman Lovett, who was one of the pioneers of Alternative Comedy and was once a warm-up act for The Clash. Norman went on to become well known for his part in the cult Red Dwarf series. Norman is about as relaxed a performer as you can imagine and is about as deadpan as you can get.

Sir Ian Bowler MP is the alter ego of Nat Tapley, who is a regular writer for Have I Got News for You? among other things. Sir Ian is a hideous politician a little in the mould of Sir Alan B'Stard and has some fantastic eulogies to figures like Michael Gove.

Guest speakers on the night include new MP for Brentford & Isleworth Ruth Cadbury, Hammersmith MP Andy Slaughter and Mayoral hopeful Sadiq Khan.

The night also features a special raffle and all money goes to the Socialist Health Association London and Save our Hospitals.
