NHS in Stitches: The Live Show

On the 28th March 2015 at the Hackney Empire in London an army of volunteers including some of Britain's best comedic talents: Lucy Porter, Stewart Lee, Junior Simpson, Mark Steel, Wendy Wason, Nish Kumar, Francesca Martinez, Slim, Kerry Godliman, Pappy's, Rufus Hound, and Ed Bennett lent their (often quite loud, always hilarious) voices to our call to stand up for the nationís proudest achievement and most treasured institution: Our NHS. This 37minute film is based on the 2 hour live event. It features a selection of the fantastic stand up sets, sketches and short films from the night. It also includes some back stage interviews with a few of the comedians.

History of the NHS (in five minutes) from History Bombs

History Bombs founder Chris Hobbs says: "Lockdown conditions have been very difficult for many industries, including the creative arts, however having to stay at home is a small burden compared to the extraordinary work performed by NHS staff in these extremely challenging times. We wanted to show our support and celebrate the NHS in our iconic musical style. This video has been really enjoyable to put together with our brilliant cast. I really hope it makes people smile and helps to raise some money for NHS charities!"
