Comedy Unleashed with Jonathan Pie & Shazia Mirza
July 10, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm£9 – £17
A new type of comedy club for free thinking comedians – with no self-censor button.
Jonathan Pie is the comedy sensation who satirises the world of politics and the media. A frustrated news reporter known for venting his spleen in unguarded “off-camera” rants, his online videos have been viewed by millions worldwide.
As an old-school leftie, Pie’s anger is usually directed towards the Tories. But he has also been known to question the tactics of the left, which has got him into serious trouble from time to time.
Shazia Mirza is an award winning British stand up comedian and writer.
But what do awards mean anyway? Everyone’s got an award. You get awards these days just for leaving the house and recycling your yogurt pots. Her parents just want her to get married.
