New Comedy Night launches in Dulwich

South East London is getting a brand new regular comedy night, featuring big-name headliners and hand-picked favourites from the alternative circuit.

Plosive Comedy in Dulwich launches on Friday October 6 in a lovely 300-seat theatre – the MCT at Alleyn’s – and headlining the inaugural show is lager-guzzling poet, Edinburgh Comedy Award-winner and ‘Alan Partridge’ star Tim Key.

Joining Tim for October’s show are multimedia mischief-maker and 2017 Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee Mat Ewins, Bathgate-born stand-up and star of Viceland’s ‘Brexit Stage Left’ Fern Brady, and MC Lloyd Griffith, the new co-host of ‘Soccer AM’.

Then, on Saturday November 4, Sara Pascoe – Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee, acclaimed author and star of ‘Live at the Apollo’, ‘Taskmaster’, ‘QI’ and ‘Mock the Week’ – takes the headline spot.

Sara’s supported by talented stand-up Tez Ilyas – who’s appeared on ‘The Last Leg’, ‘Mock the Week’ and ‘Live from The BBC’ as well as starring in his own Radio 4 show – shape-shifting absurdist and 2017 Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee star Jordan Brookes, and podcasting champ (‘All Killa No Filla’ podcast) and Chortle Award nominee Kiri Pritchard-McLean as MC.

Plosive Comedy in Dulwich is the new flagship London comedy night from Plosive Productions, the comedy production outfit behind the Wells Comedy Festival in Somerset and producers of Lucy Pearman’s Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer-nominated Edinburgh Fringe show, ‘Maid of Cabbage’.
