Some of Hull’s best comedy talent will be showcased at one of Hull Venue’s test events this summer.
As well as testing the arena’s balcony seating, the event will act as a launch for the Hull Comedy Festival and showcase some of the emerging comedy talent from the city.
Jed Salisbury will host the event with performances from Steve Rimmer, Lois Mills, Jack Gleadow, Gary Jennison and David Smith. As a special treat there will be a headline set from Angelos Epithemiou.
Come and spend some time with Angelos Epithemiou as he guides us all through this difficult period in the history of our planet. Nothing is off the agenda, North Korea, Trump, Brexit. Angelos tackles it all head on! He also does jokes and there is an opportunity to have a sing along with him, should you play your cards right
