What’s on this Week!

This week at the Basement Theatre…

Wednesday 4th July 

New Sh*t at 8pm | Free

The ultimate comedy test-ground for new acts and old pros. Our monthly line-ups will be made up of a mixture of old hands wanting to road test new material and newer acts finding their comedy stride. New Sh*t is a pay what you want event so throw a couple of pounds in the bucket and come nurture new talent – you never know, you might be seeing the next big thing.

The show is free with a bucket collection at the end, but to secure your seat, book a free ticket online.

Thursday 5th July

Alfie Brown: Whatever Works at 7.30pm | £5

Alfie Brown is back with new jokes in a new show. These are jokes about how we cling to easy epithets to claim some sort of identity in a world where the individual is washed of their character. Alfie is one of the most exciting and challenging comedians working in the UK, charming, silly and sometimes livid he has earned exceptional reviews for his work.

As seen on Viceland and various other shows, do not miss this exceptional comic at his favourite venue.
