And we'll probably having a competition!

Please only RSVP YES if you are definitely going - we have a no show policy - as below:

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.

    Agreed. Never be scared of sitting in the front row, it's the best place to be! But don't tell everyone or they'll all want to sit there...

    Au contraire. The front row is the only place to be!

    A fantastic and fun-filled night in a vivacious vintage venue. A great night full of lovely people... The acts weren't bad either!

      Paul, think we're going to have to keep our eye on this one! ;)

    Hi All, just to let you know: due to filming commitments, sadly Eric Lampaert can no longer be with us on Wednesday night. Instead, we have the fantastic Rhys James coming in to do an extended slot. He's one of the best young comedians in the country! We are in for a treat.

    Great, thx Paul! Does Effra Social run weekly or monthly comedy shows?

    1 · May 17, 2013

      Brilliant! Will see you at that one for sure. We have some brilliant nights coming up – this is the best (serious) hobby in the world, curating and performing stand-up! And happy to give Meetup members a good discount, as it helps no end to know that we will have an audience of lovely, supportive, like-minded people. Plus I like to meet great new people! Also, we charge, not to be a business, but with the aim to pay ALL of our acts (not many comedy clubs do this), so most of the money we bring in gets paid out. And thanks to Paul, who is just a great man to see and have a chat with each week!
