Carl Denham organises a comedy night every month and stops for summer. For December, Carl is hosting our Meetup event - in addition to his role as compere! Here's a few (many) words from Carl himself: Thank you so much to everyone that came to this month's CMP, we had a lot of fun didn't we*? And learnt loads about my relationship with my mother and the nature of infinity itself**. Congratulations to Sarah as the winner of the much sought after mystery prize. Some of you lucky bastards got some pretty rad stickers**** too (which you get if you come back). If you come 5 times you get to put a song on the CMP playlist!

The set’s powered by punchlines” – Chortle SUPPORT FROM THREE ACTS: 1. Fatiha El-Ghorri Underneath Fatiha’s colourful hijab is a mind full of cutting observations and engaging witticism of the life and times of a British Muslim woman. Fatiha smashes the Muslim stereotypes and challenges people to think about what they think they know about Islam, Muslims, Muslim women especially. She tackles some tough subjects like Islamphobia and dating by sharing her own experiences which are funny, thought provoking and honest!
