Aftermirth! Daytime Comedy Club – December

December 10, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Ian Cognito

The journey of parenthood is a magical and maddening one so what better way to cope with it than through stand up comedy! Each week we’ll have 3 top circuit comedians, normally parents themselves oh and one token childless one to remind you, you’re doing ok, even if you have forgot to bring a gluten free rice cake.
We’ll bring the toys, the food and the funnies, all you have to do is bring your baby, but beware, this is an adult comedy club, it will have mature content, sweary words and the odd birth story flash back.

This special afternoon gig has toys, reduced amplification and a dimmed room so no one will notice those red eyes from sleepless nights. You’re encouraged to bottle, breast or Haribo feed, and we’ll have some wraps/salad boxes etc available from 12pm so you can actually eat yerself! You can walk about, or shake Mittens the Special Rabbit in order to soothe your offspring and no one will moan or mutter if your little one cries or screams.
The gig is open to parents, Aunts, Uncles, Grans, carers, in fact anyone who needs some afternoon comedy and doesn’t mind some cute babies in attendance.
Decembers headline act is Ian Cognito.
Thirty years on the comedy front line and Ian has done all the things you’d expect a comedian to do in that time, except be on telly.
Ian Cognito is an iconoclastic performer, he has been compared to Lenny Bruce, Bill Hicks, and Jerry Sadowitz but has never achieved success in the mainstream media, in part at least due to his irascible reputation. He won the Time Out Award for Stand-up Comedy in 1999.
His uncompromising style means many places shun him. Their loss being parents and babies gain, a rare nearly first for Ian.
Ian Cognito comes from a long line of fathers, in fact his dad was one. His children used to think he was funny.
And so have many, many others. Ian owns a guitar and he’s NOT afraid to play it.
PLEASE NOTE: We welcome babies under 18 months but are unable to accomodate children over 18 months. Please try not to bring your buggy as we have limited space, if you do bring a buggy it will need to be folded in the venue.

Doors open 12pm for food and drinks, comedy starts 1pm and finishes at 2.30pm.

We will have a selection of food on sale (please do not bring food bought outside the premises).
There’ll be a full bar too, so go on, treat yerself to a Prosecco, you deserve it!
