Comedy Squared

Touching Cloth (New Material Night) is a free, weekly Open Mic night on the corner of Shoreditch / Bishopsgate which puts ACTS first.

Here's how it works:

++ Entrance Fee: ABSOLUTELY FREE
++ The evening starts at 8pm and ends at 10:30pm.
++ For a walkin spot, turn up for 7pm and register. So it's first come, first served!
++ If you've booked a spot in advance and are NOT there by 7.30pm, there's a big risk it will go to a walkin.
++ Why not bring some friends along? The bigger the audience, the better.

** ACTS, THIS IS WHAT'S EXPECTED OF YOU:
++ TC is NOT A BRINGER / BUT A STAY-ER. If you come as an ACT you are expected to support all the other ACTS who supported you by STAYING.
++ Perform a well-rehearsed 5 minutes of new material. Do not overrun, as being booted off stage can often offend.

** A WORD ABOUT WALKINS:
Get there as early as you can to get on the reserved list. Doors open at 7pm.

** BOOKING IN ADVANCE:
If you wish to book in advance for an spot, email me (frank.cassidy@gmail.com) with:

++ The words 'Touching Cloth' in the title of the email.
++ Your name.
++ The date for the spot (ONE email per date please).
++ By the way, I don't need your back-story (how many gigs etc.) I just don't care! Saving the story telling for stage...

If you are not a comedian, but just a fan of comedy, please do come along. It's totally free to attend. Just get down to the Water Poet on Folgate Street, grab a beverage and strap in for some free funnies from London's finest comedians working the greatest comedy scene in the world!
