Camden Comedy is my new Free Open Mic Comedy Night held upstairs at The Cuban, Camden Market.

Come along and be entertained with real live comedy. Some of it you’ll love and some of it will be ‘ok’ and some will be Uh? or even oh! But I guarantee it will fun!

sprite-comedy  Where and When

Address:
The Old Crown, 33 New Oxford Street WC1A 1BH

The Old Crown is a traditional pub on the corner of Museum Street and New Oxford Street.
It’s halfway between Tottenham Court Road tube (0.3miles) and Holborn (0.2miles) so easy to walk to within five minutes.
We’re on the second floor so remember stop off at the ground floor bar and bring your drinks up with you.
It’s an old narrow steep staircase so disabled access is difficult. Please ask for assistance.

Acts: To take part please fill out this form:
https://goo.gl/forms/Dv6j5v3w2qNG0OzR2

Things you need to know:
1) This is a busy, fun gig. Received wisdom says lunchtimes are quiet but our average audience last year was 38 with many gigs over 50. That makes it a brilliant place to promote your show and your act.
2) It's not a dark or angry material gig. Our audience at lunchtime is far less tolerant of nasty, profane, brutal and explicit material. So DON'T ASK FOR A SPOT IF THAT's YOUR STYLE. play nicely :-)
This is not a gig to experiment or try new stuff. It's the Fringe and that deserves your best.
3) Promotion- We encourage you to plug your show at the end of your spot and hand our your flyers at the end.
We ask in return the you arrive at 11.45 and help us flyer for 20 mins before the show. We've two entrances and full house just leaving and five busy streets to promote to. Because we're PBH we must distribute the wee blue book as well so put your flyers inside.
4) Spots are 5 and 10s and the scheduled is tight. Please be flexible its the Fringe!

It you've questions please ask them now, before filling in the form.
