ALDI has called together some of the biggest names in comedy for a night of laughs at the Dubbo RSL.

Tommy Little, Tom Gleeson and Geraldine Hickey will be taking part in Stand-Up for the Farmers on Friday night.

Tickets are free, however it’s an 18-years-and-older only event. The event was announced on Tuesday night and by Wednesday afternoon there were only about 20 tickets to the event remaining.

An ALDI Australia spokesperson said they were proud to partner with The Project to hold the event.

It was part of the company’s ongoing support of communities affected by the drought.

”As part of this, we will be donating $200,000 to Rural Aid to fund support programs for the greater Dubbo region and NSW’s Central West,” the spokesperson said.

Funds given to Rural Aid support their mental health counselling program and other initiatives like the Buy A Bale campaign.

Mr Gleeson is no stranger to the Central West. His brother Nick Gleeson owns Factory Espresso in Orange.
