COMEDY PICK IN METRO & EVENING STANDARD!

After our first three special intimate gigs at Camden Comedy Club we’re happy to announce our next three!

This is Stand Up & Slam with a twist! Every month we’ll introduce a new act or host, play a new game and just generally shake it all up a bit.

But the main point of the show remains the same. Performance poetry: comedy’s boring cousin, right? Stand up: poetry’s idiot relation, yes? Let’s find out.We’re mashing up the two artforms for one night of spoken word: Stand Up & Slam! Six phenomenal acts from the worlds of comedy and poetry go face-to-face for your approval in a killer night of Stand-Up VS Performance Poetry.
