What we're about

This group is for any fans of musical comedy, both live and recorded, in London, to go to live comedy, cabaret, music and theatre shows featuring musical comedy, and perhaps just to meet up to discuss, share and appreciate musical comedy too?

Musical comedy is any form of comedy that involves music, be it original songs, parodies/spoofs, or characters, sketches, sit-coms, puns/one-liners, stand-up, improvised or alternative comedy involving music, or even just good old musical theatrical productions that are funny.

Feel free to use the message boards of the group to discuss your favourite musical comedy acts and songs, suggest shows to go to, and help us come together as a community.

This group is run by Dave Nattriss, a musical comedy fan in London who also runs the Musical Comedy Guide website and helps behind the scenes at the Musical Comedy Awards.
