The money raised will go to opening the dedicated comedy club in a city centre location that is currently under negotiation.
Comedy promoter and owner of Breakneck Comedy, Naz Hussain said “If we meet our target we can have a place that we can call home within a few months. We will bring hundreds of the worlds best comedians to Aberdeen and will also be able to offer local people the chance to give stand up a try!”
If the project is successful then the Breakneck Comedy club will be one of the biggest comedy clubs in Scotland and will be open seven nights a week with live entertainment.
Naz also plans to use the venue to help young people get into comedy while helping build their self confidence.
He explained “There is currently nowhere for young people in the North East to get into stand up comedy. However that could all change if the public get behind this project.”
