A healthy turnout was on hand for our second annual Comedy Night at Tannadice last Saturday.
Our ever popular merchadise proved a hit thanks to ArabTRUST stalwart Dave Baxter's makeshift stall.
MC Susan Morrison got the night underway preceding the first act of the evening Keir McAllister. His routine was was topical featuring some great gags about Aberdeen. Much of his material was about his time in Dundee as a student. Great stuff.
Next up was local Arab Paul Welsh. This was only his second ever gig and you can see how it went by viewing the YouTube footage below. Paul made a point of getting in touch to thank us for allowing him to have a slot, but Paul - the pleasure was all ours and we were delighted to have you. Well done.
Headliner Phil Differ was up last with a fantastic routine interlaced with a good helping of football humour. Unashamedly Celtic, yet genuinely complimentary toward Arabs, the club and ArabTRUST, it was a great finish to the comedy.
The evening was then rounded off with a raffle and auction.
In all, a handsome £648 was raised. Now added to 'the pot', those funds will prove vital for our drive to regenerate Gussie Park - an integral of United and ArabTRUST's youth and community initiatives alongside the Fed and DUBC all pulling together for the future of our club.
Thanks to everybody who attended and thanks for helping us raise such a great amount.
Special thanks to the Cooperative Society, the comedians, all of the ticket outlets, the Tannadice staff, Joe Rice and Riki Grauer.
