Produced by the South Kensington Comedy Club and fresh from the London stand up comedy circuit! Five lovely acts, all alike in dignity, showcasing their award winning material for the lovely people of Brooklyn for one night only! Lovely.

Our acts are:

Winner of the King Gong at the Comedy Store London, and seen at the Royal Albert Hall, and Dubai Opera House with his compilation comedy show "Arabs Are Not Funny," Mo Saffaff. Mo is a Damascus-born, London-bred comedian, his material aims to shine a dark yet charmingly satirical light on the political and cultural arena as well as his own shortcomings in life.

Sam Picone, a fast rising comic on the London scene who's act has been described as "Effortless delivery and slick timing...a natural on stage" by Mo Gilligan, brings his unique anecdotal style dipping into issues such as race, identity and relationships where he underpins big ideas with an irreverent twist.

As seen as part of the prestigious Angel Showcase at the Edinburgh Fringe and as heard on BBC Radio 4, Hannah Fairweather is a Scottish born- Aussie Raised- London based comic who is the self proclaimed Taylor Swift of comedy sharing jokes about people who have wronged her in the past. Hannah was also the 2019 Rising Star New Act of the Year.

Simone Belshaw is an offbeat and surreal comedian whose act was described by the Wee Review as "s seriously talented comedian". She was a BBC new comedy award nominee and listed as one of the top ten "Ones to Watch" by Funny Women who described her act as "brilliantly offbeat".

This night is hosted by the, dare I say, lovely Jamie Allerton. Jamie is a 2016 Liverpool Echo New Comedian Finalist and creator and producer of WTD Comedy. Broadway Baby described Jamie's act as "A flurry of energy with a clever routine".

PICK OF THE FRINGE - Hollywood Fringe Festival 201

Confined to The Living Room, these two Accountants of Death work tirelessly to record the death toll. The occupational hazards wear on the clowns as they learn the meaning of life and death. What ensues is an absurd and physical jaunt brimming with audience interaction, existential phone calls, impaired dancing and the love of a goldfish.

Developed at The Lyric Hyperion Theatre in Los Angeles, this show rides the fine line between comedy and tragedy. Employing physical comedy and absurdist theatre techniques, this show leaves the audience laughing and crying and thrust out into the night to ponder it all.

Amrita Dhaliwal and Gemma Soldati are students of Cirque du Soleil's John Gilkey, Spymonkey's Aitor Basauri, The School for Theatre Creators with Paola Coletto, Upright Citizens Brigade, The Groundlings Both teach for The Idiot Workshop in Los Angeles. Together they devised a clown show inspired by their loss of loved ones.
