Sheffield business leaders join stand-up challenge

Business leaders in Sheffield are to try their hand at stand-up comedy as part of events raising funds for a hospital charity.

Ten men and women will be training for Funny Business with Sheffield comic Anthony J Brown who is known for his dark humour and dead-pan deliveries.

They will then test their skills at a public event designed to raise funds for Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity at Sheffield City Hall on November 29.

The money raised will go towards Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity's Do Your Bit campaign, which aims to raise £1.3 million to create a new research and treatment facility at Weston Park Hospital in Sheffield.
