Amused Moose Comedy's NATIONAL NEW COMIC AWARD 2019: 
SemiFinal 3, hosted by MARK DOLAN with special guest JACOB HAWLEY

This evening you can vote for six very entertaining semifinalists onstage at Soho's upmarket boutique Karma Sanctum Hotel, in the swanky Variety Screening Room, who have already won through from hundreds in the qualifying rounds and are in the top 5% of emerging comedy talent!  So you're in for a treat at the coolest comedy night in town, hosted by C4's Balls of Steel and The Jump MARK DOLAN, with special guest JACOB HAWLEY.

Tonight's semifinalists Abigail Carter-Simpson, Babatunde Aleshe, Basil Jamm, Ciara Jack, Tom Elwes and Will Hall are eager to win your votes to set them on their way to the Final at the Edinburgh Fringe in August where finalists battle for fame and a shiny moose trophy, previously won by Jack Whitehall, Sarah Millican and Rob Beckett, with finalists including Josh Widdicombe, Romesh Ranganathan, Katherine Ryan, Jimmy Carr and Greg Davies.  

Amused Moose Comedy shows are recommended by Time Out, and the comedy website Chortle reports:
"An atmosphere which is both intimate and unfailingly professional ... in the plush setting that deters the lairier elements of a night-out crowd":

Delight not only in tonight's mirthmakers in this trendsetting hotel which combines a showbiz vibe with the ambience of a private members club, but also enjoy the food and drinks served in its Wild Heart Bar & Grill and rooftop bar, where you will be welcome to meet and mingle long before showtime, and long afterwards too - both serve an extensive range of cocktails and craft beer. 

Showtime is 8pm until about 10.15pm; the comedy room with its private bar opens at 7.45pm, but you can arrive from 5pm and relax in the hotel's Wild Heart bar.

Enjoy a 20% "Before Show" discount on the a la carte menu, or choose from the £14.95 set menu, ordering at least an hour before the doors open for the show.  Call 020 7292 6102 to book a table.  Bar snacks are available at all times.
