Description

Loose Brie present: The Mencap Comedy Christmas Show (A Show is for Mencap, Not Just for Christmas)

This year Ol’ Daddy Xmas is coming early, and he’s bringing with him the biggest names in boundary-smashing comedy.

We’ve got the most award-winningest, critical-acclaimiest, big time freaks and weirdoes on the circuit, so prepare to have your collective, festive minds blown.

As always, proceeds go to the excellent Tower Hamlets Mencap Society. This includes the takings from the bar - £2.50 Red Stripe, spirit and mixer £3 – so make sure you do your bit and buy a round or three.

Early-bird tickets are only £5 (full price is £10), so, as the big, jolly bastard with the fur-trim fetish might say if he had a serious speech impediment: “Go! Go! Go!”

Joining us this Christmas we’ve got:
