NATURAL BORN STORYTELLERS

Wednesday 18th November. Time: 8:00pm (Doors open 7:30pm) Tickets: FREE! https://www.facebook.com/events/1609315432624352/

It’s all getting too much! Sometimes we have to break down. It’s too tough emotionally, events get on top of us or maybe you were just unlucky enough to buy a crap car that keeps on breaking down. Whatever your interpretation of ‘breakdown’ we’d love to hear your story set around a breakdown or maybe the breakdown was a small but pivotal moment in a much bigger story. Come on down to The Camden Head to hear some great stories about breakdowns and hopefully no one does that on stage…

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…

If you have a story on the theme of ‘Breakdowns’ and would like to perform, please send us an email at naturalbornstorytellers@gmail.com

WHAT HAS THE NEWS EVER DONE FOR ME?

Monday 2nd November. Time: 8:00pm (Doors open 7:30pm) Tickets: £5.00/£4.00

Everyone’s favourite topical news show for people who mean to read the newspapers. We love the news like we love our partners, it’s changeable, you never know whats going to happen and has the capacity to go mental and ruin our lives.

Every month three top comedians bring in a story they think is the most important from that weeks news and have to persuade you the audience why theirs is the one you should care about.

Will it be the refugee crisis, David Cameron’s colourful university love life, or Kanye for PM- You decide. We don’t think we’re dumbing down the news so much, as dumbing it up!

Hosted by Grainne Maguire. This month’s guest acts are Ben Partridge, Ivo Graham, Gabi Hutchenson Crouch.
