MICHAEL MCIN­TYRE

GOES TO SHUL

The Jewish Chronicle - - FRONT PAGE - BY JC REPORTER

MICHAEL MCIN­TYRE has added a syn­a­gogue to his list of gig venues after a sell-out charity per­for­mance for Jewish Care at Kin­loss in Finch­ley.

The arena-fill­ing co­me­dian re­sponded to a re­quest from event spon­sor Daren Bur­ney and gave his ser­vices for free.

Although the event was or­gan­ised by the charity’s Red­bridge Sports and Entertainment Com­mit­tee, it was held at Kin­loss for rea­sons of both ca­pac­ity and cove­nience for the star of the show.

Es­sex sup­port­ers of the charity trav­elled the North Cir­cu­lar in con­voy and more than 300 en­joyed the per­for- mance, which raised £140,000.

It also marked the tenth an­niver­sary of the com­mit­tee, which along with the Red­bridge Aid Golf So­ci­ety, has raised more than £1.8 mil­lion to sup­port Jewish Care ser­vices in the lo­cal­ity.

Speak­ing af­ter­wards, com­mit­tee chair An­drew Klein thanked the co­me­dian for “giv­ing up his time to en­ter­tain us in a hall just slightly smaller than Wem­b­ley. The room was filled with laugh­ter from the mo­ment he started un­til the very end. It was an amaz­ing evening.”
