Amused Moose Comedy's NATIONAL NEW COMIC AWARD 2017:
Semifinal 1, plus TOM WARD & MICHAEL LEGGE

Tonight you can vote for seven exciting new comedians onstage at Kings X’s iconic WaterRats music/comedy venue, which launched Oasis in London and Bob Dylan in the UK.  They have already won through from the heats and qualifying rounds so you're in for some fun at the coolest comedy night in town, hosted by MICHAEL LEGGE.

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

"Perfect happy atmosphere": Giles Brandreth

Michael introduces star-in-the-making TOM WARD plus the seven semifinalists: Danielle Leger, Kai Samra, Catherine Bohart, Sam Whyte, Tommy Ettling, Kuan-wen Huang and Rob Oldham 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 finalists will 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 comedy-goers are very welcome to enjoy this atmospheric historic venue any time from 5.30pm to socialise and mingle before the show, during the interval and aftershow until around 1am.

To make the most of your night out, maybe have a pre-show meal which will be even tastier because of the 20% comedy-goers discount on food ordered before 7.15pm.  There is an extensive bar with real ale, and air conditioning.

Showtime is 8.15pm until about 10.30pm; the comedy room opens at 7.45pm.

Tickets: £8 to £12 (any unsold tickets, cash-on-the-door).

The Water Rats theatre, 328 Grays Inn Road,London WC1X 8BZ.

Kings Cross station is only a few minutes walk away.

If you’d like to sit with friends who will arrive separately, someone should arrive when the doors open and know the number in your group.

Seating cannot be absolutely guaranteed for late arrivals.

Birthday groups are very welcome, but no single-gender groups of 8 or more.  (See Small Print below)

1) No under 18’s (bring photo ID if there may be any doubt)
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.
3) Because of potential annoyance to others, Hen Nights, Stag Nights, and single gender groups of 6 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 the above circumstances, because it is assumed that everyone is aware of, and accepts, these terms.
5) Occasionally performers may unexpectedly become unavailable, so do check if you are coming to see a particular comedian.  Neither they nor Amused Moose Comedy accept any liability in respect of their non-appearance, but Amused Moose Comedy will do all possible to replace them with another comedian of similar or higher standing
