The journey of parenthood is a magical and maddening one so what better way to cope with it than through stand up comedy!
Liam Pickford will be headlining this event. If Stewart Lee, Jack Dee and Morrissey ever had a child together then Liam is who they would call son. Liam started performing stand up in Manchester in June 2012. His unique style is a breath of fresh air to the circuit with Liam has crafted his own unique brand of stand up, mixing cleverly honed material and punchlines with excitingly unpredictable audience interaction. All this, mixed in with a hint of ‘whimsy’ and clever observations whilst delivered in a wonderfully unenthusiastic and grumpy style. Liam has become a circuit favourite and is destined for big things.
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! All food must be pre-ordered before the event. 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.
