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.
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.

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.
