Fantastic comedy night set to take place in Dublin in aid of Sean Cox's medical fund

A great lineup for a great cause.

Famous comedian John Bishop has announced that he will host a night of stand-up comedy at Dublin’s 3Arena on Friday, 10 January to raise money for The Seán Cox Rehabilitation Trust.

Bishop will be joined on stage by a star-studded line-up, including Michael McIntyre, Tommy Tiernan, Dara O’Briain, Deirdre O’Kane, Joanne McNally, Jason Byrne and Des Bishop in aid of the ‘Support Seán’ campaign.

Tickets cost €65 and they're available to buy from 14 October via Ticketmaster.

Speaking about the event, John Bishop said: "Seán Cox was just like any other football fan - an ordinary man on his way to watch his team playing a big game. Then this brutal attack happened and changed his life forever. It could have been any of us.

"One way to support this very brave man is through laughter, so we’ve brought together a brilliant line-up of comedians to help raise money for Seán’s on-going rehabilitation. Please come and join us on Friday January 10 as we support Seán."

The Seán Cox Rehabilitation Trust was established to raise money to fund his rehabilitation after he was left with life-changing injuries following a horrific and unprovoked attack in April 2018.

The father of three was attacked as he made his way to Anfield to watch the Champions League semi-final between Liverpool FC and AS Roma.

After almost 18 months of treatment in Ireland, Mr Cox is currently undergoing an initial 12-week rehabilitation programme in the north of England in a specialist neurological facility which focuses on developing speech and movement.

We wish him the best in his recovery and hope that the comedy night raises plenty of funds to go towards his treatment.
