Gloucester Rd cafe/bar Alchemy 198 hosts this supportive evening of laughing and learning.
Playtime: 6pm, £5
“If you’ve got five minutes of comedy you’d like to perfect, this is a chance to share it with – and have it peer-reviewed by – a supportive group of women at different stages in their comedy lifetimes.
“We’re also *hoping* to get a film crew in so you can get a decent clip to send to promoters and competitions. We’ll split the cost of the film crew between everyone who wants a clip – hopefully about a tenner each.
“Or just meet like-minded women with a passion for comedy, learn how to generate material through improvised comedy, share scripts, sets, jokes and ideas from comedians currently performing on the circuit, and find support as you take those next steps in the world of comedy.”
Showtime: 8pm, free.
“Funny Women knows that comedy can be scary, so this night provides a platform for women to get on stage and perform comedy for the first time. Even if you’re already a regular on the circuit, Time of the Month is a great night to try out new material in front of a warm and supportive audience. And the Alchemy 198 audience is SUPER SUPPORTIVE! Sign up after Playtime to book a spot.”
