Cheltenham Town Hall Comedy Club – November 2020

More mirth busting covid-compliant and socially distanced stand-up comedy merriment!
This is a bumper night of some of the best comedians on offer from the UK comedy circuit. Featuring Dana Alexander, Eshaan Akbar, Jake Lambert and Tom Glover! Friday 20th November, 7.30pm.
Do note that the Town Hall, main space, will have a reduced audience capacity to allow for the appropriate social-distancing measures so everyone can have a safe, secure and fun filled time.
Dana Alexander
The only black female comedian on the circuit in Canada, Dana’s comedic style is both refreshing and irreverent, drawing her material from her diverse lifestyle, her gay friends and her crazy Jamaican family. Adept, charming and astute, she is warmly funny with an impishly sarcastic sense of humour. This is a lady not to be missed.
‘Like a gift from the Comedy Gods’ The Herald
Tom Glover
Loveable West Country favourite Tom Glover is a highly sought-after act and MC, capable of bringing laughter to any room. Tom combines tales of fatherhood and country living with hilarious observational routines on daily life.
His infectious personality and playful approach make him an instant hit with audiences, however Tom is perhaps best known for his excellent crowd work and quick wit that have earned him a number of regular compere roles at major venues across the South West.
