‘Join us for a Charity comedy night in London's coolest cocktail bar, where you have to find the looking glass to enter into a speakeasy-style room, hosting squishy sofas and a private bar!
The line-up includes two stand-ups who have just finished their three week Edinburgh run:
Izzy Mant (pictured)- Izzy's just returned from a total sell-out run at the Edinburgh fringe with her show, Polite Club, about the horrors of extreme politeness. "Surreal.. loose wheeling.. pure hilarity" (Ed Fest Mag), "Engaging, intelligent and unflinchingly honest" (The List). Izzy is a comedian/writer and in her spare time, a BAFTA-winning TV comedy producer.
Tara Newton-Wordsworth- Tara is a comic, actor, wife and mum. She performed in renowned London based comedy sketch show 'NewsRevue', subsequently directing and co-writing the Edinburgh Fringe run of the show at Pleasance Courtyard, which The Sun called ‘One of the slickest, most professional, hilarious shows you will ever see’. This year she took her debut stand up hour 'Motherhood: A Comedy' to the Edinburgh Fringe.
Susan Earl- You may recognise Susan from TV appearances such as ‘Reggie Perrin’, ’Red Dwarf’, “So Awkward” and “Hardware”. She was also in ‘Torvill & Dean’ on Christmas day but you won’t recognise her from that because they sprayed her hair brown and made her look like Maggie Thatcher. Susan has been performing stand up for the last few years and was nominated for best newcomer at Brighton Fringe 2017.
Neil Ben -Neil is our MC for the night. He supported Lenny Henry in 1985 and now after a short break of some 34 years, he has returned to the stand-up circuit. Neil is a storyteller with comic asides and does he have some stories... He's similar to Ronnie Corbett, just shorter.
In addition, we will be joined by:
Tiffany Trethowan - The comedian with the Cornish surname. Made in Luton. Now from a small village. Tiffany’s having a mental time finally having a voice to speak out, as coming from a large family means she can’t get a word in edgeways!
Joss Cox resigned from her previous job and signed up for a comedy course. Did she find herself? Did she ever get paid again? Does she now only speak in rhetorical questions? You will only find out if you come and see the show.
Lauren Britton - a world record holder (eating 9 Ferrero Rochers in a minute) this Britton really has got talent!
John Steel - although relatively old, John is relatively new to the world of stand up. His sets have been reviewed as 'hilarious' where his quick-wit has found its natural outlet. You will be entertained!
All comedians are joining us to raise money for Cleft and ActionAid.
We look forward to seeing you there!’
