Amused Moose Comedy's NATIONAL NEW COMIC AWARD 2018: 
Semifinal 2, hosted by SIMON FEILDER, with HARRIET BRAINE

Tonight you can vote for six very entertaining semifinalists onstage in the plush Variety Screening Room at Soho's upmarket rock'n'roll Karma Sanctum Hotel.  They have already won through from the qualifying round and quarterfinals so you're in for some fun at the coolest comedy night in town, hosted by SIMON FEILDER.

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

Simon introduces tonight's special guest HARRIET BRAINE, Amused Moose Comedy Award finalist, plus the contenders Jack Harris, Bennet Kavanagh, Marc Jennings, Fraser Gibson, Oisin Hanlon and Mamoun Elagab who having already won through from hundreds who would have liked to have the opportunity to make you laugh tonight, need your votes to get to the Edinburgh Fringe in August where 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, Katherine Ryan, 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 Wild Heart Bar & Grill  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 8.10pm until about 10.30pm; the comedy room with its own bar opens at 7.50pm.

Tickets: COMPLETELY SOLD OUT (no tickets on-the-door).

Venue: Sanctum Soho Hotel, 20 Warwick St, W1B 5NF; there is a free cloakroom at the hotel reception. 
Piccadilly Circus and Oxford Circus stations are only a few minutes walk away.

Seating: 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.
The venue is airconditioned, and totally wheelchair accessible except the rooftop bar (do notify asap so that seating in the comedy room can be re-arranged).

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

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.
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.
