A host of top comedians have announced a stand-up show at the 3arena in the new year, to raise cash for Sean Cox.

The Dunboyne native was left with life changing injuries after an unprovoked attack before the Champions League semi-final between Liverpool FC and AS Roma last year.

John Bishop, Dara O'Briain, Michael McIntyre and Deirdre O'Kane are among the comics that will be on stage on Friday the 10th of January. They will be joined by Tommy Tiernan, Joanne McNally, Jason Byrne and Des Bishop.

John Bishop says: “Seán Cox was just like any other football fan - an ordinary man on his way to watch his team playing a big game.  Then this brutal attack happened and changed his life forever.  It could have been any of us.  One way to support this very brave man is through laughter, so we’ve brought together a brilliant line-up of comedians to help raise money for Seán’s on-going rehabilitation.  Please come and join us on Friday, 10 January as we support Seán.”

After almost 18 months of treatment in Ireland, Sean is currently undergoing an initial 12 week rehab programme in the North of England in a specialist neurological facility.

Tickets go on sale this Monday October 14th at 9am.
