Amused Moose Comedy's NATIONAL NEW COMIC AWARD 2017:

Tonight you can vote for seven exciting new comedians onstage in the plush Variety Viewing Room at Soho's upmarket rock'n'roll Sanctum Hotel which makes this the coolest comedy night in town.  They have already won through from the heats after the qualifying rounds so you're in for some fun at the coolest comedy night in town, hosted by Rude Tube, Sky Movies and MTV's ALEX ZANE.

"An atmosphere which is both intimate and unfailingly professional ... in the plush setting that deters the lairier elements of a night-out crowd":

"Perfect happy atmosphere": Giles Brandreth

Alex introduces ROGER MONKHOUSE plus the seven semifinalists: Olga Koch, Hurt & Anderson, Philip Simon, Currer Ball, Liam Jeavons, Michael Clarke and Matt Hutchinson who having already won through from the qualifying rounds and heats, need your votes to get into the final at the Edinburgh Fringe in August where the finalists battle for fame, fortune and a shiny moose trophy (previously won by Jack Whitehall and Sarah Millican, with finalists including Josh Widdicombe, Romesh Ranganathan, Jimmy Carr and Greg Davies).

Amused Moose’s multi-awardwinning and TimeOut Recommended comedy nights feature the very best stand-ups on the comedy circuit, television and festivals worldwide, as well as brilliant handpicked breaking talent.

Delight not only in tonight's mirthmakers but also in quality food and drinks in this swish boutique hotel with the feel of a private members club, with its classy restaurant and bars where you will be welcome long before showtime, and long afterwards too. 

To make the most of your night out, enjoy a 20% discount at Sanctum's luxurious Remix restaurant on meals ordered between 5pm and 7pm.  Restaurant reservations are made by calling 020 7292 6102, and then quoting 'Show Dinner'.  Social Food dishes for aftershow can be ordered in the interval at any bar.

Comedy-goers socialise and mingle before the show, during the interval and until late, in the upmarket restaurant bar or the hotel’s delightful rooftop bar - both serve an extensive range of cocktails and craft beer.

Showtime is 8.15pm until about 10.30pm; the comedy room with its own bar opens at 7.45pm.

1) No under 14’s (14-17 year olds must be accompanied by a responsible adult)
2) Local bye-laws require venues to refuse admission to anyone who appears to have been pre-drinking, so come straight to the venue rather than elsewhere first.

4) Anyone causing a nuisance or disturbance will be required to leave.
The venue (not the comedy night) have responsibility for the above.
