Conscious Comedy Club II
That’s right, after the success of our first comedy club, and now in lockdown 3.0. We wanted to bring back Comedy Club II, we will have four performers taking to the stage for a night of laughter and lockdown fun.
The event will be 16+ again and we will also be hosting an after-party from 9:15pm - 10pm (or later) for anyone who wants to hang around.
See all of the need-to-know event details below.
When: Thursday 4 February @ 8pm
Where: Club Zoom

This time around, we have four event sponsors, all of whom are contributing towards the cost of the event by donating 100 cocktail bundles to lucky attendees (who work for law firms) who will be chosen at random. These sponsors are listed in the left hand column.
The performers, all hand-picked by Conscious are as follows.
