There's nothing nicer than a funny song and that's literally all this night will be. Original songs performed live onstage by comedians who can really sing, partnered-up with talented musicians who are also really funny. It's basically a music gig but the band changes after every song, the songs are really stupid and you don't get to dance as we'll all be sitting down listening politely please. Line-up tbc but expect to see all the comedians you already know can sing.
Jamie is one of the UK’s leading young character comedians and comedy actors.

Phil Dunning is a comedy writer and performer. His first solo show, the Berk’s Nest produced ‘The People’s Prince’ was a cult hit in 2016.
He’s filmed sketches for Mr Box and performed in numerous Edinburgh fringe runs as part of the sketch group Oyster Eyes.
Johnny White Really-Really
Johnny White Really-Really continues to be one of the stand-ups in the country, if not the world. Also he made a deeply cult film series for Vice called Let's Consider, but that was a while back now! (look it up though, you might like it!).
Fest magazine said "real comic craft, and an authentic and novel voice"
Liam Williams referred to Johnny's particular vibe as "like having a very good dream" .
haracter comedians and IRL sisters Maddy and Marina Bye blend clown and physical comedy with intensely serious, classically trained, theatrical performance. This is absurdist sketch comedy from two hot twins (we are not twins but can be for casting purposes).
Material is suitable for anyone who has or has seen a sister.
★★★★★ 'A kaleidoscopic fever-dream' (Entertainment Focus) ★★★★★ 'Totally absurd' (BroadwayBaby) ★★★★ 'Absurdist comedy at its best' (ScotsGay) ★★★★ - Charming ridiculousness that will have you snorting with laughter (Ed Fest Mag)
Winner: Best Comedy, Perth Fringe 2017.
Named 'one of the most exciting emerging talents' and fresh from a total sell-out season at the Melbourne Comedy Festival.
