Wed, April 12, 2017, 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM BST
Off the back of their successful UK tour and triumphant final night at platform with Gecko last month, Harry and Chris are plunging back in with their ever-growing monthly funfest that is: Joyride! A combination of some old faves, some world exclusives, some almost-regular features, a house band, and guest slots from our favourite people from the worlds of Poetry, Music, Comedy and more...
Our wonderful friends at Brainchild in conjunction with Platform Southwark have given us the space to take over for the second Wednesday of each month, so why not drown out those April showers with a healthy dose of Joy!
This month we have:
Co-graduate of the Roundhouse Poetry Collective with Harry and one of our all-time faves, it is an absolute pleasure to be able to welcome Zia down to Joyride. A perfect blend of poignancy, puns and thoughtful delivery that will be sure to turn him into one of your all-time faves by the end of the night too.
“This poet is an original. He does a wonderful dervish dance with language.” – Imtiaz Dharker
After seeing her smash Edinburgh show Lolly 2 at the fringe last year we became instant fans and have wanted to get her to joyride ever since. Character comedy at its absolute finest. Chortle.co.uk’s Best Newcomer and Best Character/Improv/Sketch Act-nominee. As seen on Sky1's Rovers and ITV2's @elevenish, and on Channel 4 and BBC3. ★★★★★ (Mirror). ★★★★ (Independent). ★★★★ (Time Out). ★★★★ (Fest). ★★★★ (Skinny). 'Hugely entertaining' ★★★★ (Evening Standard). ‘Real spark and verve… the sort of natural charisma that can’t be held back’ (Guardian)
We have extended capacity but expect this to sell-out so makesure you book your tickets in plenty of time, and we will see you there !
