Comedy Night Talent Wanted

The Cultura Comedy Night performances kick off at 8:30pm on Monday 20th June and we’ll be giggling until 10:30pm. The evening will be compéred by our very own Patrick Kitterick, winner of the 1999 Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year.

This is an open mic event and we’re on the hunt for more Clarendon Park comedians to join the line-up.

If you think you’re the guy or gal to tickle some funny bones, drop us a line on the contact form and get your name on the list. Performers should rock up around 7:45pm and make themselves known to Deb Lawrence who will be organising time slots.

Good luck, and knock ’em dead! We all love a night of pun.
