It’s nearly the first Thursday of the month, so it’s nearly time for Tooting Rhubarb Comedy Club at The Wheatsheaf in Tooting Bec.

This has been a very consistently funny comedy show - always a fabulous line up and so far, always funny. Our host is the lovely Anthony Dewson - and he's worth going for just for his charm.

We get a whopping £2.50 off this Comedy show - and only pay £6.00!

When we meet, I will give you a Tooting Social club ticket. You take that into the club and hand your £6.00 directly to the man at the door. Please be discreet, as Anthony doesn't want everyone to know that we get a discount!

Terry Alderton had to cancel in February, so he's interrupting his national tour to make an appearance at Tooting Rhubarb. Terry has been on Michael McIntyre's Roadshow (BBC1), the Royal Variety Show (ITV), Let's Dance for Comic Relief (BBC1), The Harry Hill Show (Channel 4), The Jonathan Ross Show... He's also been nominated for the Perrier Award at the Edinburgh Fringe, and recently won the 3 Weeks Critics Award at the New Zealand Comedy Festival.

"Seat-of-the-pants stand up" The Guardian
"Hilarious." The Times
"Terry Alderton was crowned King of the Mountain for the most blinding headline performances on Tuesday and Friday. John Bishop and Eddie Izzard were both great, but Terry took the roof off both nights and got a standing ovation." Chaz Collett, sound production, Altitude Festival 2013

Joe Lycett is not that far into his comedy career but has already been on 8 Out of 10 Cats (Channel 4) and Never Mind the Buzzcocks (BBC2), and he's supported Jack Whitehall and Ross Noble on tour (not at the same time). He's got bags of talent and we're all going to be seeing a lot more of him.

"an accomplished storyteller" Chortle
"Imaginative and cheekily subversive" The Guardian

Mike Wozniak most recent TV roles include It's Kevin (BBC2) and Live at the Electric (BBC3). He's also a writer for Stand Up For the Week (Channel 4), 8 Out of 10 Cats (Channel 4) and The News Quiz (Channel 4). He's been nominated for the Best Newcomer Award at the Edinburgh Fringe, played the Adelaide and New Zealand Comedy Festivals, and he headlines at theatres and comedy clubs up and down the country.

"A real star in the making" Time Out
"Cleverly offbeat as well as occasionally off-beam" The Independent

Tom Adams was runner up in the Musical Comedy Awards (2012) and won the Spirit of the Fringe Award in Edinburgh (2010). He's performed on Loose Ends (Radio 4) and supported the marvellous Simon Munnery. Tom usually performs at groovy places like Battersea Arts Centre and the Invisible Dot. I think David's arty beard confused him into coming to Tooting.

"Brilliant fun" Time Out

    5/10 for 1st one, 7/10 for 2nd one, 08/10 for 3rd one, 7/10 for 4th one - so despite Terry being a no-show was a good nite. Some friendly banter before the comedy & was nice to see the regulars as well as meet some newbies. Hopefully they'll rebook Terry soon!

    Anna will be standing at the entrance to the back room, that's where we'll all congregate

    April 4, 2013

  • Shereena

    Just a final reminder that Anna has pre-reserved seats for the meetup attendees - so if you can no longer make it please change your RSVP to NO asap (then she can let the comedy organiser know so there are no empty/wasted seats).
    We have a no-show policy - see below.

    We have a no-show policy - see below - also Anna has pre-reserved seats for the meetup attendees - so please only RSVP YES if you are a definite YES (not a maybe) & you can make it on time.

    No show policy:

    In order to provide a place for all interested members & to be fair to the hosts & to the venues, there is a no show rule for our meetups: - if you have RSVP'd yes and don't show up or
    - if you change your RSVP from yes to no within 12 hours before the meetup takes place

    you get 1 no-show point. Once you have reached 3 points within one year the meetup organisers have the right to exclude you from the group, should they choose to do so.

    Also, if you are a no-show to an event then the host of that event has the choice to exclude you from their future events if they wish; hosts are not paid for their time, they give up their own time to organise & hosts events so it is extremely frustrating when there are no shows.

    This rule is here so everyone can enjoy the events - you and the hosts - it's common courtesy to let hosts know if you can't make an event - so please ensure you keep your RSVP up to date.
