Comedy for World Mental Health Day, 10th Oct 2016.

Published on: 03-10-2016


To mark World Mental Health Day on October 10 2016, the Country Mile Comedy Club, fundraising for the SHM Foundation, presents a new night of comedy from some of the brightest and best stand-up and sketch comedians around.

The Troubadour hosts a stellar comedy line up, headlined by stand-up Phil Wang (‘Daphne Sounds Expensive’, ‘Have I Got News For You’), who is joined on the bill by sketch duo The Pin, preparing material for the third series of their BBC Radio 4 show, stand-ups Catherine Bohart (BBC New Comedy Award 2016 Finalist and Funny Women 2016 Awards Grand Finalist), and Sarah Keyworth (Funny Women Awards 2015 First Runner Up), and sketch triangle Two Plus Ones, fresh from their Edinburgh Fringe debut ‘Mothers’.

The Country Mile Comedy Club is fundraising for the SHM Foundation. All proceeds will go to Project Khuluma, and there will be a bucket at the end of the show for donations as well.

Praise for the line-up:

The Pin – “’A very classy, very funny show indeed”, The Telegraph; “The Pin prove it’s still possible to play with the conventions of the medium of sketch comedy”, The Guardian

Catherine Bohart – “Already seems like a comic with both a distinctive voice and a story you’d like to hear”; Chortle, “Clearly on the cusp of great things”, Funny

Sarah Keyworth – “Excellently deadpan” – Huffington Post; “Pulling in the biggest laughs”, Three Weeks

Two Plus Ones – “Original and clever… the jokes come thick and fast”, Broadway Baby; “Not to be missed, at any cost”, Varsity

Details: Monday 10 October, 8pm (approx. 1hr 10). Tickets: £3.50 online / £5 on the door.
