Hell To Play (a gameshow set in Hell)
December 8, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm£7
A game show set in Hell, in exquisite bad taste.
It’s Christmas time in Hell. Satan is full of Holiday cheer, and wants to give someone a present – he wants to give someone the chance to win back their soul…
Hell To Play is a game show set in hell, hosted by the devil himself. All comedians go to hell, as they are awful people who tell jokes about awful things, but this holiday season, during Hell To Play, one comedian will win the chance to redeem themselves. The Devil loves to play games, and all the games in Hell To Play revolve around the damned, the souls of the dead doomed to eternal damnation, so expect to meet some of history’s most evil people in this upbeat game show for all the family (18+). Hell To Play will be preceded by stand up from the night’s contestants.
