This event has been and gone.
To enable comedy shows to proceed at the Hen & Chicken Studio, The Comedy Box is implementing a series of measures to minimise the spread of the coronavirus. These include the maintaining of social distancing by dividing the seating into separate 2-seater and 4-seater tables, or "zones", at a minimum of 1 metre distance. One ticket corresponds to one table of either 2 or 4 people.
Customers will also be expected to wear face coverings at all times in the venue. (Of course, we want customers to enjoy their beverages too so mask lifting will be permitted). We will be issuing sanitised plastic full-face shields on the door which are returnable on exit or customers can bring their own.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Described as the 'Leonard Cohen of comedy', Andrew Lawrence is the master of his game. As seen on BBC1's 'Michael Mcintyre's Roadshow' and Channel 4's 'Best of The Brighton Comedy Festival', Andrew is also a double 'If' comedy award nominee. '... a hard act to follow' (Chortle) 'Anyone who gives this spikily inventive performer the time of day will realise they're in the presence of an A-list talent' (The Guardian) 'Few people have caught the irritated, misanthropic mood of the moment better than this supreme misfit; the only wonder is that it's taking Lawrence so long to become a national institution' (The Daily Telegraph) 'Lawrence rips the cynical heart from his chest and wears it defiantly on his sleeve' (Metro) 'Powerful, sad, angry, true stuff' (The Scotsman) '... you owe it to yourself to see him' (The Daily Mirror) 'This show is a must see without a doubt' (Edinburgh Reporter).

Perrier Award nominee and Hackney Empire winner, Luke Toulson has been a guest on BBC Radio 4 and 5 Live, and written for comics appearing on Live At The Apollo and Mock The Week. 'Rock solid comedy' (Chortle) 'An explosion of good-natured self-deprecation and exasperated observations...' (The Daily Telegraph) 'Toulson is clearly a gifted comic' (The Sunday Times) '... he is the kind of comedian who should share the spotlight with the more established stars' (The Stage).

Sally-Anne is charming and popular, with a winning brand of autobiographical humour. She'll take you on a journey through her slightly eccentric world, including insights into the female psyche and her compulsion to send off spoof job applications. 'Small-time country posh life versus young lady breaking into the stand-up circuit. Fabulous!' (BBC London Live) 'It's easy to imagine Hayward at the 02 or guesting on QI. She is a crowd-pleaser and a straightforward observational comic, but so are most of Britain's favourite comedians today. Hayward is easily the equal of any of them' (The Skinny) 'Innate effusive likeability with straightforward but effective writing... a primetime act' (www.Chortle.co.uk) 'Exceptionally funny' (The Independent).
