"My favourite night of the comedy calendar" -  Notts Comedy Review

"NCF comedy is one of the finest supporters of emerging comedy talent in Nottingham" Ben Macpherson, Paria Theatre

"Definitely worth more than £1 - a mix of new and more established acts but always a good night out. Ridiculously cheap for such a fun night out with friends - much better than just spending another night sat in the pub." Minder Athwal (audience member)

"Absolutely brilliant night, great to see such comedic talent locally, better than many headline comedians and established comedy venues you pay much more for. Can't recommend it enough, great mid week laughter pick me up" Red (audience member, meet up group)

"Thank you to you guys for making comedy accessible to people who can't necessarily afford to pay lots of money that the big clubs charge, everyone deserves the gift of laughter in their lives" Red (audience member, meet up group)

Where: Canalhouse - 48 - 52 Canal Street, Nottingham, NG1 7EH

Doors: 7.30pm (Start: 8pm)
