The Comedy Night, the first that the Sussex children's charity has organised, saw a full house enjoy sets from Joe Wilkinson, Katherine Ryan, Maisie Adam, Tom Davis and Suzi Ruffell, with Jen Brister comparing.
Along with this stellar lineup, the audience was also treated to a surprise guest in the form of Joe Lycett, who wasn't advertised on the original bill but was able to find time to come along.
Donna Holland, Rockinghorse CEO, was blown away at the reaction to the evening and the support shown by so many wonderful comedians and the local community:
"Events like this don't happen very often and for this one to have taken place in aid of Rockinghorse is just amazing.
"The money we have been able to raise this evening will make a huge difference to so many babies, children and young people.
"On behalf of the team at Rockinghorse, I would like to say an enormous thank you to everyone who bought tickets and came along, to our sponsors SRC Corporate Finance, and of course to all the comedians who made us laugh, made our work possible and made this a real night to remember."
Among the event's sponsors was Brighton local Joe Wilkinson. And it was Joe who was able to organise the amazing line-up of comics, all of whom gave their time absolutely free in order to support Rockinghorse.
"Rockinghorse is a great local charity that do such a wonderful job in supporting families going through some really challenging situations.
"I'm over the moon that some of the best comics in the country agreed to come along and be funny for such a brilliant organisation," said Joe Wilkinson.
Adam Marshall, who came along with friends, said:
"There was so much energy in the room and the atmosphere was wonderful. All the comics were hilarious, and the line-up was second to none. And then the added surprise of Joe Lycett just made the evening even more special."
