The Global Comedy Night is an evening stand-up in its purest form. Hilarious, inventive, sometimes a little strange or with a musical twist, but always funny. Because that’s what comedy is all about: the joke!
The Comedy Night is a relaxed night. Make sure your phone is turned off when the bestcomedians hit the stage.
