Sam Brady one-man show KINDNESS for Severn Hospice 6th July 2014

by MorrisHallShrewsbury on June 25, 2014

UPDATE 28th July 2014: The organisers of this event would like to say ‘Thank you!’ to all who came and supported us so generously, the evening raised £1000 for Severn Hospice.

Award-winning comedian Sam Brady will perform his one-man show KINDNESS at 7.30pm on Sunday 6th July in The Morris Hall Shrewsbury, to raise money for Severn Hospice. The show has just finished a sell-out tour of the UK, and will be part of The Edinburgh Fringe in August 2014.

Sam Brady Kindness for Severn Hospice

This Shrewsbury performance is given in memory of Sam’s mother-in-law Judy Townsend. Judy was a well-known Shrewsbury figure having lived all her married life in the town, and she was Mayoress of Shrewsbury 2009-2010 (at the side of her husband the then Mayor, Councillor Alan Townsend). Judy sadly died from cancer in 2011 and never got to see her son-in-law perform professionally, even though she had it on her ‘bucket list’! She spent her last days in the Shrewsbury Severn Hospice whose wonderful team supported her and all the family.

In the show, failed Buddhist monk Sam explores his ongoing struggle to be a “good person” and asks why KINDNESS is so undervalued and so hard to practise. Join him for an evening of heart-warming, thought-provoking, soul-searching comedy.

And help raise money for a great cause.

With this naturally funny and charismatic man, there wasn’t one moment of this show that felt contrived or forced. We heard hilarious (and some quite poignant) anecdotes that drove home his point that even though humans are flawed, the little acts of kindness really do make a difference…Emotional and uplifting.” Three Weeks

As he relates his struggle to be consistently kind, Brady reveals the truth of human nature: that it is possible to be grumpy and fussy but also to have moments of true kindness. This is life presented in its true form with highs and lows and much self-deprecating laughter throughout… Go see for yourself and maybe feel a little less cynical about life.” Broadway Baby
