Let’s get 2018 off to a rollicking start! Join us for an EU-themed night of comedy at Widcombe Social Club, starring celebrated comedian, writer, critic and author Viv Groskop, direct from Edinburgh (almost), plus supporting acts. Viv writes regularly for The Guardian and The New European. An excellent antidote to the New Year Brexit blues!
Viv will be supported by a great line-up of up-and-coming talent: Fitz, Jessie Nixon, Morgan Rees and Alex Mahoney. Big thanks to Bath Comedy for supplying the acts!
Whether it’s as part of the main line up or as a compere, Fitz is able to draw laughs from his own life and personal experience while thinking fast on his feet in any given situation. Charasmatic and friendly, Fitz is definitely one to watch!” – Komedia Bath
