Special Guest Headliner: LJ da Funk

LJ DA FUNK (Leicester Square Theatre New Comedian of the Year Winner 2015) is a self-styled southern-fried gangster, boisterously blending sex, silliness and satire in a melting pot of mayhem. LJ is known for peppering his routines with provocative politics and audience-shout-along catchphrases that often make his act seem like a festive pantomime co-directed by Chris Morris and DMX.

"There's a fine line between genius and insanity. LJ DA FUNK has crossed that line and kicked it to death" - The List

"Relished every minute of it, an infectiously enjoyable quality" – Steve Bennett, Chortle

"Deceptively Clever" - Bruce Dessau, Beyond the Joke"Definitely One to Watch" - Broadway Baby

About the club...

Special guest MC: Frank Cassidy

One of London's finest open-mic clubs Touching Cloth (New Material Night) hosts a great weekly night of FREE entertainment featuring comics (new and pro) trying out never-been-heard-before jokes on you: the discerning public at large.

Will their jokes hit the mark
Or will they have to 'Touch the cloth'?

Either way it's a roller-coaster ride of fun and open-mic madness mixed with down right weirdness!

Show starts at 8pm and finishes at 10pm. Doors open at 7pm.

The Water Poet, as well as serving a brilliant range of beverages also does great pub food! It also has literally the best beer / smoking garden in the Square Mile.
