Owen Donovan, Managing Director said: "With live comedy finally returning, we're really excited to be putting some of the best comics in the UK on stages all over the country. 'Normal' is a long way off, but I'm hopeful that over the next 6 months we can rebuild with brilliant tours, amazing line-up shows, and some very special one-off performances. We're doing everything we can to make all of our shows as safe as possible for audiences, acts, venue staff, and our own team, and you can help us - make sure to #takeatest before coming to a show! We're so grateful for the support we've had over the last 16 months from audiences, acts, and everyone in the industry, and we can't wait to reward that support with some of the best shows we've ever produced."
