The journey of parenthood is a magical and maddening one so what better way to cope with it than through stand up comedy!
This comedy club welcomes babies up to a year old (any older and they tend to heckle) but beware, this is an adult comedy club, it will have mature content, sweary words and the odd birth story flash back.
This special morning gig has reduced amplification and a dimmed room so no one will notice those red eyes from sleepless nights. You’re encouraged to bottle, breast or Haribo feed while The Cloak and Dagger’s Michelin starred chef will serve food so you can actually eat yerself! Brunch will be served at 10am, with the show commencing at 11.30 am.
You can walk about, or shake Mittens the Special Rabbit in order to soothe your offspring and no one will moan or mutter if your little one cries or screams. There’ll be a full bar too, so go on, treat yerself to a Prosecco, you deserve it!
The gig is open to parents, Aunts, Uncles, Grans, carers, in fact anyone who needs some daytime comedy and doesn’t mind some cute babies in attendance.
AFTERMIRTH is lovingly curated and compered by Angie Belcher.
There’s limited space, ditch the buggy and bring a sling if you can.
This event is not suitable for babies or children over 1 year old
David has been performing since 2012 and has performed all over the UK for some of the countries biggest promoters. He has shared the stage with many of today’s crop of TV talent, performed at some major UK festivals and has won critical acclaim in competitions such as So You Think You’re Funny and The South Coast Comedian of the Year.
In 2018 David made a breakthrough onto the mainstream arena and as well as performing with the likes of Bobby Davro and Jimmy Cricket also landed a lead role in a variety show at the Babbacombe Theatre in Devon. The summer season of 75 shows has given him a springboard into a new world of comedy and he has spent much of last year performing at holiday parks and theatres throughout the UK.
