We want to give open spots and pros alike a night to be able to turn up and just do 5 without booking in with us weeks before. Instead, you just need to register in person between 6pm and 8pm.

There will be no breaks. Full-on, no holds barred live comedy for anyone and everyone. Table service throughout the show. Barrel Bar upstairs open until 1am. If you are in the room and your name is called, you have 5 mins - no questions asked! If you’re not in the room, you miss out.

It’s going to be loose and fun and quick! Think gong show without the gong …just the dulcet tones of The Fratellis to tell you when your 5 mins is up!

Come join the fun, either on stage or in the safe sanctuary of our wonderful audience.

Upstairs Barrel Bar open from 18:00 - Doors Open at 19:00 - Completely Free - Unreserved Seating - Come and go as you please! - Table Service throughout the show.

8pm (Approx 11pm finish)
