Start up business telecoms company Agile Comms brought something new to the local calendar last week with the launch of their inaugural Comedy, Conversations and Canapes event.


The informal networking-comedy-fundraiser which, supported by over 70 representatives from the local business community, raised over £1,700 for their charity partner Young Devon.


Three fantastic comedians took to the stage at The Loft on Sutton Harbour to entertain the audience – David Arnold, Tom Glover and Christian Russel-Pollock from 1st Edition Comedy. This quality line-up delivered, leaving the audience in stitches!



A raffle continued the buzz and saw winners take home a fantastic range of prizes, generously donated by friends and clients of Agile Comms, including signed memorabilia from Plymouth Argyle, Exeter Chiefs, Plymouth Albion and Plymouth City Patriots.


Post-comedy drinks were kindly sponsored by Triangle Networks, which allowed the conversation and laughs to continue flowing late into the evening.


Ollie Jackman, Director of Agile Comms said: “It’s great to help our business community connect and have some fun, and we’ve been touched by the support of our friends and network in putting on this evening’s event. The response to the event has been fantastic so we’re looking to do the next one in November when we’ll also be celebrating our 1st anniversary in business.”


Andy Moreman, CEO of Young Devon said: “Huge thanks to Ollie and James Fisher at Agile for allowing us to explain the essential work that Young Devon does.  It’s never been more challenging to help young people with their mental health, homelessness and skills development so it’s great to see businesses coming together to support this crucial work.”
