The Bike Project Comedy Fundraiser: Jokes & Spokes

The Bike Project’s annual comedy fundraiser is back! All proceeds help get refugees cycling.

Having fled persecution and atrocity in their country of origin, most refugees arrive in London with absolutely nothing. A bike helps refugees and asylum-seekers access food banks, legal advice, healthcare, education and much more. At The Bike Project, we believe that no one should have to choose between eating a square meal and catching the bus. That’s why we do bikes.

Ed Byrne is an Irish standup comedian, actor and self-proclaimed nerd. He has featured on Live at the ApolloMock the Week and Dara and Ed’s Great Big Adventure.

Nish Kumar is a British comedian, actor and BBC radio presenter. He has featured on Have I Got News For YouThe Mash Report and on the panel of BBC1’s Question Time.

Deborah Frances-White is a comedian and feminist writer who also delivers seminars to women in business on subjects including charisma, diversity and inclusion. She co-hosts the highly-regarded podcast series, The Guilty Feminist.
