Mock Tudor Comedy - Friday 23 June

Our monthly Mock Tudor Comedy club night!  With wonderful headliner, JOHN ROBERTSON, plus MICHAEL AKADIRI and an additional guest spot with JOE BOR as your MC.

JOHN ROBERTSON - is a high-energy improvisational stand-up comedian; his material is 'edgy, intelligent and smoothly delivered'. A human hurricane, John has headlined festivals, theatres and comedy clubs around the world, where he arrives, plays with the crowd like nobody else can, then leaves. He’s also written 13 different solo shows, created custom work for private bookings, performed at 11 Edinburgh Fringes, and since 2020 his online shows have raised over £100,000 for charities including NHS, Samaritans, Shelter, Mermaids, End The Virus Of Racism, Special Effect and The Trussell Trust.  John knows a tonne about gaming and pop culture, he extensively tours his cult live interactive gaming show, The Dark Room, and creates a new stand-up solo show most years. 

Some might say he is a force of nature - you may well remember where you saw him...  Oh, and his 'kick-ass' clothes are made by Gallery Serpentine and apparently yours should be too!
