Sony PlayStation and Bossa Studios have announced their support for the Stand Up for GamesAid comedy event on April 14. The proceeds of the comedy event will go directly to UK-based gaming charity, GamesAid. PlayStation has signed up to the role of Premium Event and Exclusive Bar Partner while Bossa Studios is an Event Partner.
"Here at PlayStation we've long seen GamesAid as hugely important to the UK video games sector," said Fergal Gara, SVP and MD for Sony Computer Entertainment UK and Ireland. "It is a rallying point for the industry and brings people together to contribute to important and deserving charities – We are delighted to be able to lend our support to Imran Yusuf and Stand Up for GamesAid."
"GamesAid is such a force for good in the industry – it brings all sorts of diverse gaming professionals together to raise money for seriously important causes," added Robert Lucca, co-Founder and CMO at Bossa Studios. "At Bossa Studios we felt it was important to be a part of it – and what better night to support than one where people can have a good laugh at the same time as supporting kids and young people's charities?"
The night of comedy takes place on Monday and will be hosted by Imran Yusuf. The line-up of comedians taking part in the event includes Holly Walsh, Jarred Christmas and Eurogamer's Ellie Gibson.
