At The Shed, we all love a bit of a chuckle. And we love stand up comedy too, however our glorious staff don't know too much about it.
Enter....A Laugh A Minute Comedy Club! Curated by Greg Griffiths, the man who is bringing huge names in the scene to The Athena throughout the year.
And even better, the event is hosted by the oh so talented Alex Hylton.

Despite being just 21, Alex is already regularly performing for some of the biggest clubs and promoters in the industry, performing alongside the likes of Rich Hall, Brendan Burns, and Jason Manford and has been named as one of Huffington Post’s ‘Top 10 Must-See New Acts’."
