The Colonel Fawcett is a traditional British pub situated on Randolph Street in Camden. The venue boasts two large outdoor areas, a function room and a lounge bar / dining area, all of which are available for hire on request. The venue can cater for anything from couples to small groups, and anything…
Safe, socially-distanced and still the best value comedy show in London, we are delighted to be returning to The Colonel Fawcett with more tremendous acts from the UK and International Festival circuit.
With her infectious laugh and high energy Rosie Jones brings "huge laughs" (Chortle) and has quickly become a must-see act on the comedy circuit. The ex-television researcher was awarded second place in the Leicester Mercury’s New Comedian Of The Year 2018, and hasn't looked back since, appearing on big hitting shows 8 Out of 10 Cats, The Last Leg and Live at the Apollo. She is warm, mischievous and unafraid to initiate gasps of shock as well as laughter from audiences with her taboo-busting routines. In her own words, she is a triple-threat (gay, disabled and a prick) and in ours she never leaves a room before dismantling its roof with laughter. A must-see.
"Smart, mischievous, laugh-out-loud funny." Chortle
"Fresh, mischievous and utterly charming." The List
"Genuinely masterful." The Skinny
Ultra working class and totally adorable, Josh Jones is a high-energy performer who wins the audience over from the off. This super camp Manchester lad, can tackle a range of subjects from school yard politics to gay rights in Pakistan. Josh is able to improvise on the fly creating razor sharp observations, he is playful with the audience often leaving them wanting more of his brilliant, superbly delivered writing. Josh started comedy in the North West playing tough rooms to scary old drunk men, his flamboyant persona made him a easy target. However, this made Josh the strong comedian that he is today, a comic who can have the audience in the palm of his hands whilst also being able to beautifully disarm any heckler with his quick wit and cute but powerful put downs.
"He has a very engaging personality, and a back – story that should keep in routines for years to come." Chortle

AND YOUR RESIDENT HOST:
BEN VAN DER VELDE
One of the quickest wits around and a much-loved compere, he always brings a jam-packed back of nonsense, silliness and wisecracks to every gig he hosts.
"Sharp and crafty gagsmith, a life-giving compere." Chortle
"Wonderfully improvised riffs showcasing his impressive spontaneity and sharp tongue." Edinburgh Festivals Magazine
“The perfect comedy club host – he is a master of audience interaction. The audience weren’t just warmed up, but pretty hysterical even before the first act of the night hit the stage.” Huffington Post
