the brilliant 1st semi-final of Amused Moose Laugh Off, previously won by Jack Whitehall and Sarah Millican, from which the two winners progress to the Final at the Edinburgh Fringe in August.  Along with a panel of comedy industry judges, you will be able to vote for your favourites.

Hosted by Mark Dolan (Balls of Steel and Sky Movies host), headlined by Tom Deacon, the show features eight of this year's best new comedians, Francis Foster, George Lewis, Joe Hart, John Pendal, Kae Kurd, Luke Courtier, Mixed Doubles and Sophie Willan who have already won through from hundreds of entrants in heats and quarterfinals, and will be fighting it out for a place in the Final and then the shiny Moose trophy.

Tickets are limited for this special comedy night in the intimate performance space that is usually the hotel's cinema. 

Delight not only in the lively comedy entertainment
also the quality food and drinks in this rock'n'roll, boutique hotel which feels like a private members club, with its fab restaurant and bars, where you will be welcome before the show, maybe coming straight from work to meet up before the show.

To make the most of your Friday night out, enjoy a meal at 20% discount at Sanctum's No20 restaurant pre-show.   Restaurant reservations (times: 5.30 to 7pm) can be made by calling 020 7292 6102 and quoting 'Show Dinner'.  

The comedy room opens at 7.45pm; showtime is 8.15 until around 10.30pm.  Comedy-goers are welcome to socialise and mingle before the show as well as in the interval, and aftershow until late at the splendid restaurant bar.

Tube: Piccadilly Circus/Oxford Circus.

NB: Seating cannot be guaranteed, so late arrivals at sellout shows may have to stand.

Our comedy shows are NOT suitable for large single-gender groups or after-work celebrations
.    (See Small Print below)

1) No under 14s (because there is a bar in the comedy room)
2) Local bye-laws require venues to not admit anyone who appears to have already been drinking alcohol, so come straight to the comedy night rather than meeting up in a bar/pub.
3) Because of potential annoyance to others, single gender groups (including HEN and STAG nights, and 'happy' office/work parties) of six or more will not be admitted.
4) Anyone causing a nuisance or disturbance will be required to leave. 
The venue (not the comedy night) have responsibility for the above.
NB: No refund will be made in any of these circumstances, because ii is assumed that anyone coming for the comedy show is aware of, and accepts, these terms.
5) While every effort is made to ensure that the comedians who appear are those named above, occasionally performers may unexpectedly become unavailable, so do check if you are coming to see a particular comedian. Neither the unavailable comedian nor Amused Moose Comedy accept any liability in respect of their non-appearance/replacement, but Amused Moose Comedy will do all possible to replace them with another comedian of similar or higher standing

At Soho's Karma Sanctum Hotel.
