Your host tonight is

MARK DOLAN  (C4's Balls of Steel and Sky Newspapers)  

Amused Moose COMEDY CONCEPTS showcase
in association with BigFunnyFest's David Allberry

       Socially distanced :: facemasks when not seated :: air-conditioned venue
Limited numbers, so book quickly to be sure of getting in.


Mark Dolan introduces entertaining, groundbreaking comedy concepts that are 'works-in-progress' for television:

  • Josephs Emslie and Parsons present Adulting "A show that tests comedians on just how good they are at being an adult, from the life of school to the school of life and everything in between"
  • Luke Rollason, Chazz Redhead, Kit Sullivan & Georgia House present Cardboard News Network "An alternative-comedy news channel built out of cardboard and run by the UK's least-informed comedians, and a hamster."
  • Matthew Hayhurst presents School Night Live!  "A character show, an educational programme, a rave and a corporate marketing exercise. (Not suitable for children under 40)"
  • Carl Carzana presents Proper Job  "A panel show featuring comedians competing to see who would fare best in the real world. From pitching the next big thing in slow cooker accelerants, to interviewing to be a professional bicycle fisher, the contestants must battle it out to be crowned the winner"
  • David Bibby presents LIFE: The Gameshow "Your whole life in one TV show. Crazy competitive comedy"  ("A very tight and professional game show that could be taken to television for a Friday night post-pub programme ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐" LondonTheatre1)

Do you wish you'd been there when Alex Horne developed Taskmaster at the Edinburgh Fringe, getting excited by new ideas and different tasks that were tried out?  If so, coming along tonight is your chance to have that kind of experience.  We hear that some guests may be recognisable from television, but who knows!
