AftermirthDaytime Comedy Club
The journey of parenthood is a magical and maddening one so what better way to cope with it than through stand-up comedy! Lovingly curated and compered by Angie Belcher, Aftermirth is an adult comedy club that you can bring your baby to!
Each gig we’ll have 3 top circuit comedians present their usual club routines so the material is mature and sweary with the odd birth story flashback… the only difference is it’s during the day, your baby will be there and no one will moan or mutter if your little one (or you) cries or screams.
These special gigs have reduced amplification and a dimmed room so no one will notice those red eyes from sleepless nights. You can walk about, or shake Mittens the Special Rabbit in order to soothe your offspring and you’re encouraged to bottle, breast or Haribo feed. Babies under 18 months are welcome, but we’re unable to accommodate for older toddlers (who tend to heckle!).
There’s snacks and drinks available at 1766 Bar & Kitchen so treat yourself to cake (and a prosecco), you deserve it! Open to parents, Aunts, Uncles, Grans, carers, in fact open to anyone who needs some afternoon comedy and doesn’t mind some cute babies in attendance!
