Never miss another 'Rob Deering' show
Stand Up For The Weekend: Rob Deering, David Whitney, Tom Craine
In conjunction with the Hen & Chicken, The Comedy Box is offering a superb Christmas Comedy and Dining experience during the weekend shows in December. You can enjoy a sumptious 2 course Christmas dinner (including coffee and mince pies) plus a 2 hour comedy show featuring three of the best acts on the UK comedy circuit.
For £32.00 per head your party will dine in a designated area in the bar/restaurant downstairs (or you can book the private Greville Room at the rear of the premises if you have a very large party - capacity 36 diners), then once your party has finished dining you will be directed to the comedy venue on the first floor where your party will be sat together to enjoy two hours of high grade stand-up (including interval).
Tickets must be purchased in advance via www.thecomedybox.co.uk. Once you have made your booking you will be contacted by the Hen & Chicken to discuss your menu options.

Winner of the 2007 Hackney Empire new act of the year and BAFTA winner for Fonejacker. David Whitney's material is a fine blend of political satire and pure filth, making him the thinking person's comic. So long as that person is thinking of something satirically filthy at the time. His posh-accented delivery comes dunked in a tongue-in-cheek laddishness.
'... you can't stop him, you can only hope to contain him' (Reg D Hunter)
'His trajectory is perfect. He squeezes the laughter out of audiences. He is the squeeze person' (Eddie Izzard)
'David Whitney, a stand-up comedian with sharp cavalier observations, his CV reads: actor involved in the BAFTA wining comedy Fonejaker and bagpipe player, who has piped at many events including the Royal Tournament and Gwen Stefani’s wedding, a very witty man of many talents' (Funhouse Comedy).
