Comedy Unleashed: Shappi Khorsandi & ‘People Like Us’
September 11, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm£9 – £17
London’s free-thinking stand-up comedy club. An antidote to orthodoxy and group-think.
If it’s funny… it’s funny.
Shappi came 11th in last year’s ‘I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here!’. But she’s also done some other things, which include Presidency of the Humanist Association, writing a novel, defending everyone’s right to free speech and fleeing the Iranian Islamic revolution as a child.
You already know that Shappi is a top comedian and a beautiful person. She’s great, come and see her in ‘unleashed mode’.
People Like Us
Julie Burchill and Jane Robin’s hilarious play about the chattering classes and their Brexit horror hits London theatreland in October. We will be treated to a live preview from the play.
Jay pokes fun at unthinking orthodoxies and unpicks liberal pretentions. He was a hit at a previous Comedy Unleashed gig and, in repsonse to many requests, we have given Jay a longer slot. Here’s a taster
Godfrey Elfwick Memorial Service, performed by Andrew Doyle
Elfwick was a brilliant Twitter caricature of the excesses of the liberal-left. He, or rather xe, identified as a ‘genderqueer Muslim atheist’ who was ‘born white in the #WrongSkin’. For some, the image of Godfrey on the Women’s March in a full burka and pink pussy hat was a step too far. Godfrey has been banned by Twitter. This is our memorial to his life.
Red Richardson sees Red.
Dan Evans MC
Dan is an overgrown kid who enjoys losing himself in surrealism. He won’t give you his life story or deliver well rehearsed observational stories. Thank god for that.
