Australia’s cream of comedy will gather for the fundraiser Gala For Gilbo for their colleague Russell Gilbert is has suffered a series of misfortune in recent years.

In 2015 Russell suffered a brain aneurysm followed by a stroke and may possibly not be able to work again.

Gilbert’s friends have gathered to support him with Gala For Gilbo to raise funds for this ongoing rehabilitation and care. The concert will feature Dave Hughes, Wil Anderson, Judith Lucy, Glenn Robbins, Denise Scott, Shaun Micallef, Richard Stubbs, Brian Nankervis, Lehmo, Bob Franklin, Lawrence Mooney, Trevor Marmalade, Colin Lane and more, hosted by Mick Molloy.

Russell Gilbert says, “It’s so great to know you have such amazing support from your friends. What a line-up of comics! The best in the country. And Mick as well.”

In a statement Mick Molloy said, “Russell Gilbert is like a big brother to me. He is one of the funniest blokes I’ve ever met, on or off the stage and he’s coming off a pretty bad year that has involved some pretty major battles.

“Gilbo has always been there for many of us when we needed him and now it’s our turn to help out a mate.

“Not one person we asked to be part of this show said no … I think that says a lot about the man.

“Come along and enjoy the greatest line up of comics you will ever see under the one roof in this lifetime. I can’t wait for this night.

“Comics love an excuse to get together and have a few laughs, especially when it’s for a good cause and a good bloke like Gilbo. I think this night, for many reasons, will be one we all remember fondly, especially Russell, who’s been doing it tough for a while now.”
