For the next month, while the rest of the industry head up to Edinburgh, The Camden Fringe takes over upstairs (NOTE, open mic-ers, this means no open mic on Sundays for a while). We’re the main venue for stand-up comedy. There are 80+ performances to check out here and many more across more venues in the borough, so best to head over to www.camdenfringe.com to have a proper look.
Coming up, the third week of free Saturday night comedy shows. On Jul 12th, Hampstead Comedy Club presents:
BIRTHDAY GIRLS – ‘PARTY VIBES’
Brand new really funny sketch show/party. Expect odd characters, offbeat sketches, try hard dancing and the best and most rewarding time of your life.
‘Exuberantly silly, consistently imaginative and delightfully playful’ (The Guardian).
‘Hilarious and quirky’ (Three Weeks)
Featured on BBC3 and BBC Radio 4.
ANDREW WATTS – ‘FEMINISM FOR CHAPS’
This is a show about Feminism. For chaps. Andrew Watts is an “exquisitely funny” (Time Out) comedian, but he didn’t realise he was a feminist… Until now. Join him as he explores, with his trademark “intelligent wit” (The Scotsman), how chaps like him can change the world.
“An enticing blend of honest storytelling and dark humour” (Independent on Sunday)
“Stand-up laced with a cerebral cutting-edge” – **** ThreeWeeks
As seen on ITV’s Stand-Up Hero and Comedy Central’s The World Stands Up.
IVOR DEMBINA – ‘OLD JEWISH JOKES’
Resident Hampstead Comedy host presents his favourite kosher gags alongside his personal take on the life of the modern Jewish stand-up comedian.
We’re showing some sport (good sport) on our telly screens this summer. As well as the ubiquitous World Cup, there’s also
- Tour De France
- British Grand Prix
… and that’s just this weekend!
