Amused Moose Comedy, plus Party DJ with New Year's Eve Countdown Celebration at The Water Rats, Kings Cross.

Your New Year's Eve comedians:

MARKUS BIRDMAN   ("Uniquely talented": Evening Standard. "Completely spell-binding": Chortle)  
Alistair Barrie  (Amused Moose Comedy awards nominee)  
Luke Toulson  ("Gimmick-free rock-solid comedy": Chortle)  


It's so exciting to continue the tradition of presenting three outstanding stand-up comedians to set your New Years Eve off to a great start at The Water Rats, probably the most iconic and unique comedy/music venue within miles. 

Entertaining you at Time Out recommended, multi-awardwinning Amused Moose Comedy in their inimitable styles, will be the always laughter-rich funnybones of the brilliantly talented trio of Markus Birdman, Alistair Barrie and Luke Toulson.

And that's just the beginning of your NYE fun at The Water Rats, the legendary fringe theatre, comedy and music venue which launched Oasis in London and Bob Dylan in the UK.  
Aftershow, there'll be a wellknown party DJ spinning hits to take you through to the midnight celebration and long afterwards.

ARRIVE at The Water Rats as early as you like before 8pm to maybe have a pre-show meal (see below for proposed menu), an early drink or two (at pub prices ... eg "pints from under a fiver"), before claiming your seats from showtime soon after 8pm.  

Groups of friends are very welcome - seating isn't numbered so you and your friends can book separately but sit together for the comedy, provided the first ones to arrive know how many will be in the group.
Arriving after 8.15 is fine but you'll miss some of the show of course, and you may not be able to sit with friends.
