Brighton’s newest, best, and possibly only music / comedy / musical comedy night celebrates its DEBUT SHOW at the gorgeous Folklore Rooms on Thursday 2nd February.

Headliners are the fabulous Message From The Ravens, Hastings’ premiere Americana / goth balled / indie folk / sea shanty collective. Expect five part harmonies, folklore, and hooks galore.

Leila Navabi is a 23 year old writer and comedian who is very funny indeed. She has been described as 'the actual future of comedy'(LMAOnaise); her television and radio stand-up credits include Live at Aberystwyth Pier (BBC), Stand-up Sesh (BBC), Stand Up in My House (BBC) and The Leak (BBC). She is bilingual, with Welsh Language credits including Ffyrnig (S4C) and Ni y Nawdegau (BBC Cymru).

Recently completing a sold out run at Soho Theatre, Shelf are a queer duo who would be my own personal choice for Britain’s 2023 Eurovision entry.

“Clever and catchy” - Bruce Dessau

Selena Mersey is a Brighton based musical comedian and burlesque performer. Her songs have been likened to a MUCH FILTHIER Victoria Wood and her impression of Freud remains unsurpassed.

Sharlin Jahan is a BBC (British Bangladeshi Canadian) comedian who plays no musical instruments that I am aware of. A funny women finalist, she has performed stand up on BBC4 and runs and hosts the excellent Brown Sauce night in London.

Your MC is James Walsh (Next Level Sketch / Factually Inaccurate Stand Up). James is a character comedian, sketch performer, and owner of three (3) ukuleles.
