Tribute gigs for Linda Smith

The Just A Minute panellists are set to pay tribute to their recently passed colleague Linda Smith at two special concerts.

One is in Sheffield on May 14, and one at Victoria Palace in London on June 4.

The JAM regulars will join News Quiz regulars and I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue regulars in performing mini-versions of their shows. Linda was a regular on all three shows.

Linda's friends will also perform stand-up at the concerts - including JAM guests Jo Brand, Arthur Smith, Richard Morton and Jeremy Hardy as well as Mark Steel and Mark Thomas.

The concerts are being called Tippy Top.

Proceeds from the concert will go to the Macmillan Cancer Relief, Marie Curie Cancer Care and the British Humanist Association, of which Linda was president.

If anyone goes to these, please let me know how they went!
