Last year’s debut of Laugh Against Lyme at Harold Park Hotel was a big hit, so this year we’re back to raise more much needed cash, and this time, we’ve brought one of the world’s best headliners!

Lyme disease is a severe relapsing fever and the fastest growing tick-borne infection in the world. Our best, biggest and brightest comedians reckon it’s time to beat Lyme.

Proceeds from this massive comedy event, presented by The Laugh Stand, go to the Karl McManus Foundation to help research and fight the disease.

Headline: Steve Hughes

Internationally renowned stand up comedian Steve Hughes tells it like it is – confronting, alarming and always hilarious. The convict wizard with worldly insights into the bleeding obvious comes armed with more issues than an occupy movement. The inimitable ex-heavy metal drummer has been burning up the international circuit for the past 10 years, he has toured throughout Europe, Australia, USA, Canada & New Zealand to rave reviews and mutinous laughter.

“This is exactly what political comedy should be: intelligent, provocative, profound and topped off with good, solid gags. See him while it’s still legal.” – Chortle UK

“Hughes makes Armageddon seem like a proper laugh riot,” – Rolling Stone
