|Topic:||Stand up for the NHS - celebrate the 67th birthday on Sunday|
|Posted by:||Crispin Flintoff|
|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.
