A new semi-regular night where we showcase our resident host Ben Van der Velde's awesome crowdwork and storytelling skills, as well as featuring festival shows from some of our favourite comics on the circuit.  Coming up in this first special show:

BEN VAN DER VELDE - FABLEMAKER

An improvised comedy adventure with this "master of audience interaction" (Huffington Post) as he raids the library of his fantastical imagination to create thrillers, romances, ghost stories and more original freewheeling tales that've never been told before and never will be again.

"Sharp and crafty gagsmith, a life-giving compere." Chortle

“Highly promising…an accomplished comic."  Time Out

"Wonderfully improvised riffs showcasing his impressive spontaneity and sharp tongue." Edinburgh Festivals Magazine

“On flights of fancy, he pushes ideas to extremes and displays a crackling, spontaneous energy in which we’re swept up.” Fest

JOHN-LUKE ROBERTS: AFTER ME COMES THE FLOOD (BUT IN FRENCH) DRIP SPLOSH SPLASH DRIP BLUBBP BLUBBP BLUBBPBLUBBPBLUBBP!!

Blam blam! The critically acclaimed idiot returns with a brand-new hour of extraordinary daft-hearted comedy, following a complete sell out at this year's Fringe.

has the sort of towering intellect that made him President of the prestigious Cambridge Footlights and a hotshot writer for The News Quiz, Never Mind the Buzzcocks and Have I Got News For You.  He is also, as you can see from this photo, someone who enjoys the warm embrace of the British tradition of eccentricity.  He has worked extensively with Tony Law, created the legendary Alternative Comedy Memorial Society and helms a new, daft project in which comedians try to adapt and perform unadaptable texts (like the iTunes Terms and Conditions and all of Proust's work) in under an hour.

So whether you like finely crafted Radio 4 teatime jokes or batshit crazy stuff on his theories about the intersection between Roman history and all 26 of the Spice Girls, there's something for everyone here.

“Freewheeling escapism... a joy.” ***** Fest

“A hit.” **** The Times

“Killer gags... glorious idiocy.” **** Guardian

“Mind-warping.  Brilliantly follows through on his own absurd logic…relentlessly funny.” List

“Alternative comedy close to its pinnacle.” Chortle
