Angel Comedy’s resident Sketch, Character, and Film night is back. Come along for some live and video sketch comedy from some of London’s finest.
Gein’s Family Giftshop – Headliner
The multi award-winning, critically acclaimed sketch group Gein’s Family Giftshop have had a busy old year. Edinburgh 2017 saw them one member down and one legit drama school trained actor up. They recorded a third series for BBC radio Wales and have popped up on comedy centrals Russell Howard’s Good News, Sky’s Drunk Histories, BBC Radio 4s News quiz and Dave’s Crackanory among others. Not bad for three PE kit wearing kids from Salford University. It is pretty bad for a PE kit wearing kid from LAMDA though.
