Sara Pascoe vs History
The past contains wars, witches, Kim Yong-Il and your ex. Your brain can recall being a child, while your body remembers being a monkey. Everything that has happened shapes who we are today … does free will even exist? Who cares! Miss Pascoe is here to amuse us with her joking! ‘An exhilarating, deeply satisfying show’ (Times). ‘Nothing less than full mega-watt charisma’ (Guardian). ‘Always clever and sometimes exquisite’ (Independent). Sara’s TV history includes QI, Twenty Twelve, Campus, Stand Up for the Week, Never Mind the Buzzcocks and Live at the Apollo.
Ruminations on the Nature of Subjectivity
Depending on your opinion, Nish Kumar is either ‘a comedian on the up’ (Times) or ‘a comedian I’ve never heard of’ (You). That’s subjectivity in action. A stand-up comedy show for people who like stand-up comedy shows. As seen on The Alternative Comedy Experience and Live at the Comedy Store. As heard on BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 4 and XFM. **** (Time Out). **** (Scotsman). **** (List). **** (Evening Standard). ‘A highly polished, subtly innovative stand-up … is a talent worth catching up with’ (Guardian).
Please note this event will start at 7.00pm promptly, doors are at 6.30pm
