If you wish to work with us the trajectory is to apply to perform at our Tuesday open mic & new material night so we can get to know you doing a quick 5/10 min set, then if that goes well we consider you for our Friday shows where we will ask you to do 10min or 15 min. If this goes well consistently we will then consider you for our Saturday shows which are all 15 min , 20min and 30 min spots. Everyone who performs on our Saturday shows gets paid.
Friendly and intimate comedy night at the gorgeous Artista Cafe & Gallery. We book top tier headliners from stage and TV such as Zoe Lyons (Mock The Week), Phil Kay (QI, Jonathan Ross, Viva Cabaret, Reeves & Mortimer, Russell Howard's Good News), Fin Taylor (BBC/Comedy Central), Colin Hoult (Derek/Life's Too Short) and the list goes on... Plus support from the best up and coming names on the UK comedy circuit.
The format of the night is 2/3 opening acts, then a break, then 2/4 more shorts acts, another break then the headliner. We have a new line up each week, a new headliner each week and a new MC each week so you are always getting something fresh!
Doors open at 7.00pm. We then run from 8pm until around 11pm. Entry: 10 on door - Advance ticket sales are available on skiddle, but if you choose to buy on the door, please arrive early to avoid disappointment as spaces are limited and we fill up quickly.
