The Comedy Club


In the current circumstances, humour is more important than ever.  Comedy in a socially distanced world is not just an opportunity to critique the state of the world we live in, but a crucial form of escapism, from within the comfort of our homes

Speakers:

  • Samantha Bee : Canadian-American comedian, writer, and producer.  A former correspondent on The Daily Show, she now hosts the Emmy-winning Full Frontal With Samantha Bee
  • Paul Sinha : Nicknamed ‘sarcasm in a suit’, Sinha has won extensive awards in both comedy and quizzing.  He is now a regular on ITV’s The Chase
  • Shazia Mirza : Writer of The Kardashians Made Me Do It and a regular contributor to The Guardian and The Daily Telegraph, her satire is often praised as ‘brave’
  • Deborah Frances-White : Stand-up comedian, writer and host of the podcast The Guilty Feminist.  She wrote the comedy thriller Say My Name and has given a popular TEDx talk
  • Simon Evans : Host of BBC4’s Simon Evans Goes To Market and a weekly regular on Channel 4’s Stand Up For The Week
