About this event
Punchline is back! Once again we have plucked the ripest comedy cherries & put them into an enormous comedy pie. Star of Mock the Week (the one with Andy Murray), Josh Widdicombe opens the show. Next up is sassy Roisin Conaty. Finally, get ready to be blown away by the mighty Nick Helm, guest star on 8 Out of 10 Cats, & the funniest, most thrilling performer on the UK comedy circuit. Your host for the night is award-winning comedian & star of Capital FM, Greg Burns. Dare to see the best before the rest. You know you want to.
