Just The Tonic Comedy Club Special

at Metronome, Nottingham

This event has been and gone.

Spencer Jones - Edinburgh Comedy Award and double BAFTA-nominated professional idiot Spencer Jones

Pat Cahill - “Wonderfully weird” The Guardian, “True star quality” Evening Standard

Joe Jacobs - ‘Jewish Mike Skinner with jokes’ The Wee Review

Darrell Martin - "In this age of touchy feely confessional comedy' it"s nice to see a comedian that"s not afraid to be heartless" The Scotsman

This is a very special night indeed. You ticket gains you entry to the usual show... with headliner Spencer Jones

BUT... you also get into this immediately after:

The Spencer Jones '50 Minute Disco Experiment'

Spencer bought a new looper, but he can't beatbox.

He also bought a drum kit, but he ain’t no drummer. He should be in bed. But he’s an idiot. This could be the worst idea he has ever had. But like all bad ideas, sometimes it’s funny to watch them happen while getting drunk and dancing around like a nutter. There will be special guests jumping up and joining in making noise in various ways. It’s something innit?

Please note: this bit is standing room only!

Once the main comedy night is sold out, we will put tickets on sale for the disco bit only, to let other people in!

Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.

Pat Cahill

Pat Cahill appearing at this event

Winner of the amused Moose New Act of the Year 2011. 'Combining off-beat jokes with songs about dying pets and choice fatigue, Cahill’s unpretentiously surreal and absurd outlook has seen him win numerous awards and secured him firmly in the one to watch category' (PBJ) 'This quirky performer has true star quality and bags of originality, mixing physical humour, gimmicks, wordplay and comedy songs. Imagine a cross between Sean Lock and Eddie Izzard and you might be getting somewhere, but nowhere close’ (Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard) '... Wonderfully weird’ (The Guardian).
