BBC Three Comedy Gala

Category: BBC Three
BBC Three kickstarts its London 2012 Festival coverage with a gala evening of comedy, hosted by Chris Moyles, to be recorded at the iconic Hackney Empire on the evening of 12 June.

On air, the event will tie in with Radio 1’s Hackney Weekend and will unite a local Hackney audience and local Hackney performers with a stellar roster of comic talent. Expect big names, featuring some of the very best of the UK’s comedy talent, performing for one night only to a packed Hackney audience.

The Empire, with its longstanding associations with both comedy and the local Hackney community, is the perfect location for an Olympic celebration which will bottle both the excitement of the Games and the spirit of the London 2012 Festival and deliver an unmissable, laugh-out-loud, Olympic cocktail of comedy.
