This is a rare chance to catch one of the country’s leading alternative comics outside of London.

Relax & Learn Something New

A New Comedy Experience

Sun, 12th November – 8pm – D A N C E – Dance4

We’re not entirely sure what this is but it sounds weird and interesting so we’re on board!

Watch comedians and dancers working together, creating something new. Comedians will do their sets and dancers will improvise around them, and they’ll swap, with comedians trying their hand at busting a move, and dancers finding out what it takes to tell a joke.

An exciting way to see different artforms working together. Hosted by the loveably/ enigmatic/ lover of shirts with animals on it – Daniel Nicholas.
