Award-winning writer and comedian Nathan Cassidy’s new one-man theatre show. A perfect love story in a swimming pool. It’s deep. For the perfect love story, you have to go to ridiculous lengths.

This theatre show combines Nathan Cassidy’s award winning comedy with a real life love story. At 15 years old, Nathan met the love of his life in a swimming pool, and it became a perfect love. This is their story.

Nathan’s last play ‘The Cure for the common cold’ won the Sir Michael Caine Award for new writing in theatre. As a stand-up he has won and been nominated for awards including a Malcolm Hardee Award nomination at the Edinburgh Fringe and best show win on the Buxton Fringe 2014 (and nominations for the last 2 years). ‘Cassidy seems to have a real commitment to making intelligent shows about fun ideas’ Fringe Guru ‘A great comedian’ Broadway Baby www.nathancassidy.com/deep

TICKETS: https://listings.camdencomedyclub.com/events/2017-04-19-natural-born-storytellers-camden-comedy-club

Our shows are friendly. open, intimate and honest and the stories moving, life-affirming, shocking, captivating or just plain hilarious. It’s different to a comedy show where the expectation is laughter… here laughter comes, but it’s a part of a whole breadth of other emotions and reactions to the stories and it makes for a rich, fulfilling evening’s entertainment.

Come on down and experience one of the friendliest and most memorable nights London has to offer. We’d love you to get involved, whether it’s telling a story, suggesting a new theme or just coming down to watch the night, there is something for everyone at Natural Born Storytellers.

“You are definitely onto something here. This was one hell of an evening. Like really properly captivating stories that enthralled, moved, tickled, challenged and above all entertained. Such a brilliant event”

TICKETS: https://listings.camdencomedyclub.com/events/2017-04-17-gabriel-ebulue-hip-punk-work-in-progress-camden-comedy-club

A work in progress show in which comedian and music journalist Gabriel breaks down the trials and tribulations of having a unique taste in music. He’s a lifelong music obsessive with an eclectic taste which often confuses others; after all, how can you love Captain Beefheart, N.W.A and Morrissey without being called weird? A show about how you should be judged by what you put in your headphones.

‘Refreshingly steers away from cliched routines and stereotypes’ (Bruce Dessau, BeyondTheJoke.co.uk).

These two excellent comedians are back at Camden with their latest shows.

Come and see it being made. ★★★★ Chortle / ★★★★ The Sunday Times / ★★★★ The Scotsman “The laughs are explosive” Chortle

IAN SMITH Ian Smith (BBC3’s Sweat the Small Stuff, BBC1’s The Ark) is an award-winning comedian. This is a work in progress of his fourth solo show. There is, at the very least, a joke about sledding. Amused Moose Comedy Award Nominee 2015. ★★★★★ Three Weeks / The Mirror ★★★★ The Skinny / Metro “Proper star quality” The Guardian
