Comedy superstars are hitting the stage at the Palais Theatre on the 17th of July in support of their good friend Russell ‘GILBO’ Gilbert.

The line up made up of good friends and previous co-hosts to Gilbert include Dave Hughes, Wil Anderson, Judith Lucy, Glenn Robbins, Denise Scott, Shaun Micallef and many many more. The show will even be hosted by Mick Molloy, one of Gilbo’s oldest mates. All profits raised by the event will provide rehabilitation and ongoing care for Gilbo. The gala will also include a silent auction with big prizes to bid on before, during or after the show.

Russell Gilbert, best known for his work on Hey Hey It’s Saturday as well as his own series of shows, has gone through a devastating year and is currently recovering from a brain aneurysm as well as a stroke. Support from good friends has come reeling in to bring us this Gala. Providing big laughs and a line up not to be missed, it’s also for a great cause.
