YORKSHIRE comedian Charlie Williams is to be remembered with charity benefit at a Batley nightclub.
The Frontier Club will host the benefit event tonight.
The bill will include panto star Billy Pearce, The Grumbleweeds, Catchphrase host Roy Walker, Bernie Clifton, and Norman Collier.
All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Yorkshire Parkinson's Society.
Mr Williams was president of the society and eventually died of the disease in September 2006 at Barnsley General Hospital.
He was 78.
His friend and former road manager, Neil Crossland, has organised the benefit show along with Mr Williams' second wife, Janice.
Mr Crossland, now a showbusiness tailor, said: "Although a church service would have been nice, I think a charity concert says more about the kind of man he was.
Mr Williams 171 times for Doncaster Rovers then went into comedy full time and came to prominence in 1971, with a regular shot on TV show The Comedians.
