The Team

Canned Laughter is all about raising vital food & funds for London’s food banks

Canned Laughter is run by five friends: Ali Severs-Ruiz, Kenny Tanner, Amelia Vickery, Josh Grant and Ronan Shiels.

Initially, Canned Laughter was launched in October 2017 by Ali Severs-Ruiz, Kenny Tanner and Helen Taylor who all met working together in television. Waltham Forest residents, Kennet and Helen reached out to Gary from Eat or Heat to get the gears in motion and establish what is now very much the heart of Canned Laughter: setting up important charity partnerships to serve and stock London's food banks. The squad was later joined by Amelia Vickery, who simply couldn't stay away. In mid-2018 Helen's busy workload lead her to step down from her Canned Laughter duties.

Ronan and Josh joined the team in March 2019 and are helping us grow this exciting charity event even further to reach more and more families in our local communities.

Behind the scenes, we have got things covered, but that said we’re always after a few extra hands on the night. If you fancy getting involved drop us a message!
