Let's enjoy a night of side-splitting stand-up comedy, performed by 3 internationally-renowned professional comedians!
(Note: This is NOT the same as the "open mike" comedy events of the past few weeks. This show features 3 professional comedians performing their full-length acts. The show is in English.)
Because our Meetup Group has been supporting the local comedy scene, Comedy Club Asia has agreed to give us a special discount on their upcoming professional comedy show. Details of the special deal are below. (Note: I do NOT make any money from this deal whatsoever.)
*** Featured Comedians:
GLENN WOOL (CAN) - Glenn was nominated for Best International Stand Up at The New Zealand Comedy Awards and Best Headliner at the Chortle Awards. He's also a regular TV face having made appearances on shows such as Russell Howard's Good News, The BBC Stand Up Show, The World Stands Up, Comedy Blue, and Edinburgh and Beyond for Comedy Central.
