Editor: Sean Siegfried
Monkey Kingdom for Channel 4
Friday 3rd November
Davina McCall, Adam Hills, Joe Lycett, and Munya Chawawa present Stand up to Cancer’s Eighth televised fundraising special. They will take over London’s remarkable Francis Crick Institute, a world-renowned centre for cutting-edge biomedical research, to honour the incredible strides in cancer research achieved through the generosity of public contributions. We can expect a dynamic mix of comedic talent and celebrities collaborating to raise awareness for Stand Up To Cancer, and the Prince of Wales delivers a touching tribute to the late Deborah James, affectionately known as ‘Bowelbabe.’
Later in the evening Rhod Gilbert hosts The SU2C Comedy Roast featuring an array of comedy talent including Jordan Gray, Ellie Taylor, Danny Beard, Tom Stade.
Sean has been working on VT’s for both shows.
We chatted to Sean about his experience working on the project and he said “It’s been an absolute joy working with the Stand Up To Cancer team. We’ve spent the last few weeks building the various pre-edited sequences, that will feature during the live show, and it’s been inspiring to see the contributions, from various comedians, and the creativity coming out of the production team. There’s a lot of great comedy, and there are a lot of genuinely thought provoking messages. I’ve relished the opportunity to tuck into some good old comedy editing and the whole experience has felt like it has real meaning. I can’t wait to see it all come together this Friday!”
Stand Up to Cancer: The Takeover is on Friday 3rd November 7pm Channel 4
SU2C Comedy Roast will be on Friday 3rd November 10pm Channel 4
