Head south of the river and leave your apartment and really enjoy living here this week, it’s the Greenwich Comedy Festival and it’s sure to delight and lighten the end of summer moods of Londoners everywhere. In its third year running the Greenwich Comedy Festival kicked off on the 5th and runs through this Sunday the 11th.
Tonight’s line up is absolutely certain to bring belly laughs (if you can understand what’s being said J ) Micky Flanagan, self-proclaimed Cockney geezer is going “out and out”. The south eastern Cockney comedian recently appeared on the Royal Variety Performance, Live At the Apollo, ad Have I Got News For You. The program boasts:
“Micky draws on his East End background as he ruthlessly deconstructs the Cockney myth with razor-sharp observational wit. Micky now comes to Greenwich fresh off the back of his sell out 60 date tour of some of the largest and most prestigious theatres around the country.”
You can just imagine how hilarious that will be, you can check on tickets for tonight, but likely with his last 60 shows selling out unless you have a seat you may be hard pressed to get one. The festival is offering 2 for 1 ticket to some of the other acts for this weekend’s shows, check here. The 2 for 1 is good only for Stephen Amos and Adam Buxton and the discount code to enter is: csg2011. Many of the shows are sold out, so if you do go, look for your London relocation agents there as a couple of us have tickets to some of the sold out acts. Living here is a gas this week with all these huge talents in town, the acts are sure to set the place roaring with laughter each night the rest of this week.
You Americans moving to London take note for next year’s festival, but for those whose relocation is complete, leave that apartment and get out and have a laugh!
