DOUBLE BILL!

DOUBLE BILL: STAND UP & SLAM! + MUSICAL CID

Thursday 19th November. Time: 8:00pm (Doors open 7:30pm) Tickets: £5 – £9 https://www.musicglue.com/camden-head/events/19-nov-15-double-bill-stand-up–slam–musical-cid-camden-head/

Every now and again a show comes along which is so much fun and is different every time you watch it. So we just have to programme it. Sometimes two of those shows come along – so we have to make it a double bill! Stand Up & Slam! and Musical CID are two exciting, new format comedy shows with fantastic guests and incredible hosts. You can book for just one show or you can purchase tickets at ‘BOGOF’ rates if you come to both!

STAND UP & SLAM!
Stand-up comedy: poetry’s idiot relation, right? Performance poetry: comedy’s boring cousin, yes? Let’s find out.

Six phenomenal acts go head to head for your approval as poetry and comedy collide with unexpected and hilarious results! Our resident team captains are joined by the most exciting comedy and poetry acts from around the UK. We’re mashing up the two art forms in an epic battle of spoken word. Who wins? You decide…

– The Public Reviews

MUSICAL CID
One Comedian. One Life. Twenty Questions. Press PLAY…
ABI ROBERTS’ MUSICAL CID is the cult comedy confessional show that asks, “Which comedian has a music collection like this?! Do they have an inner yearning to be rock ‘n’ roll icons and who listens to Michael Buble, Robbie Williams or Nirvana on the way to a gig?”

Musical CID is the show that delves into what top comedians have on their iPods, vinyl, cassettes and CDs and it’s coming to Camden Comedy Club with a different Special Guest Comedian every day!

Hosted by stand-up comedian ABI ROBERTS, it’s a forensic examination of the musical tastes, memories, hopes and dreams of well-known comedians from stage and screen.

REVIEWS
Reviews:

Hosting the RRRANTS nights are The Antipoet, an act at the forefront of the new movement. With material dripping in parody, they take poetry to a new level with performances as memorable as they are hilarious.
*
The Stage***

The eclectic line up was a dazzling display of poetry, comedy and music, sometimes all in the same moment. RRRANTS go the extra mile to make audiences feel both involved and inspired and laid on a banquet of comedy and spoken word talent.
