Beat the blues this January at Catford Mews, London’s newest independent entertainment venue, as they launch South London’s New Monthly Comedy Club on Thursday 09 January 2020.
Laugh the night away to six up and coming comedians, who will take to the stage for an evening of great jokes, jibes and gags. The evenings MC will be Nena Edwards and comedians performing in January will include:
o Don Biswas: Finalist of the Leicester Square Theatre New Comedian of the Year. Twice winner of the Comedy Store King Gong Show. “His unique set combines both razor sharp one-liners … Quirky observational, political and topical humour.” Review: Edinburgh Giants.
o Arielle Souma: BBC comedy award shortlist 2019. “A whirlwind of attitude, not just offering opinions but laying down the law … no-nonsense African sass … a force to be reckoned with.” Chortle. “Her distinctive style is punchy, blunt, accessible and empowering!”.
o Susie Steed: Funny Women regional finalist 2018. “Spending an hour in her (Susie’s) company is a charming alternative to doing just about anything else during the Fringe.” (MumbleComedy.net).
o Andy Storey: Finalist BBC New Comedian of the year 2015. “One of the most naturally funny comedians.” James Gill (CH4). “Andy Storey is so dry he is arid … hugely enjoyable … better than a bottle of Pinot.” Sue Pollard. Andy is one of the most exciting, original and idiosyncratic rising stars of the post alternative comedy scene.
o Darren Walsh: Best Joke Leicester Comedy Festival Awards 2019. UK’s First Pun Champion. Top 10 Jokes of the Edinburgh Fringe in The Guardian, The Mirror & The Scotsman. “The most pun you can have with your clothes on.
