MORE stars are signing up to appear in Bernard Padden's comedy show Affront, sponsored by Capital Gay, to raise money for Frontliners.

New to the line-up are actress Fenella Fielding, impressionist Faith Brown, comedian Graham Chapman, and Dr Who (Jon Pertwee) and the Cybermen!

Tickets for the show at The Piccadilly Theatre, W1, on September 13th, have gone on sale (437 4506) with prices from £10 to £100.

Ron McAvoy of Frontliners, the group of people with Aids, said of the show: "We think it's fabulous. The money is going to be used to fight for people with Aids. We are growing very fast and need to keep our people educated about new drugs and treatments."

Other stars in Affront include the entire West End cast (except one) of Kiss Me Kate, Hale and Pace (the two Bons), Peter Cook, Barbara Windsor, Michael Cashman and Liz Smith.

Scriptwriters for the night include Alan Bennett, Michael Palin, Terry Jones and Barry Cryer.

Lily Savage will lead almost every drag act on the London circuit in a number from La Cage Aux Folles.

Bernard Padden commented: If anybody objects to me using drag in the fight against Aids they can fuck off and spend their time attending prissy meetings having liberating discussions about liberating the kidney bean. Drag queens started the Stonewall Riots and now they are doing most of the Aids fundraising."
