AfriKids Ambassador Dave Brown ('Bollo' the Gorilla from The Mighty Boosh) is putting on a photography exhibition in partnership with AfriKids at The Strand Gallery running from the 5th-15th December inclusive. Tough Crowd will showcase photographic portraits of some of the most popular and well known comedians on the circuit, including Jimmy carr, Harry Hill, Bill Bailey, Lenny Henry, Noel Fielding, Julian Barratt and many more.
Dave says "Comedians are by their very nature tough, they have to be. We always see them mucking about with big smiles on their faces, but in the early days, when they were starting out, it has to be one of the hardest jobs in the world. I want to capture a glimpse of these thick skinned, seriously tough, complex, moody characters and try to show them in a different light to the happy go lucky image we’re used to”.
