Comedians stage benefit for injured Harry Potter star

A number of well-known comedians will take part in a special gig aiming to raise money for injured Harry Potter actor Jim Tavare.

Harry Hill, Stewart Lee, Dara O’Briain and Alan Davies are among those appearing the Broken Funny Bones gig at The Lyric Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue, on June 12.

Tavare suffered 15 broken ribs, fractures in both breastbones, a punctured lung, multiple breaks in his right leg, and a broken neck when he was in a head-on car crash in Los Angeles, where he now lives, earlier this year.

Paul Chowdhry, Arthur Smith, Jo Brand, Paul Zerdin, Hal Cruttenden, Dave Johns, Milton Jones and Zoe Lyons are also taking part in the London benefit.

Tavare played Tom the innkeeper in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkhaban.
