R.I.P The Wilmington Arms!

18 Jul

Ok. It’s a pub so it can’t technically die, it can only close down. And ok, it isn’t even closing down, it’s just turning into a gastro pub, but still, IT’S A SAD DAY.

The Wilmo is the place we did our first ever gig in London. It’s where we learned how sweet the sound of laughter can be, and also how soul-destroying the sound of silence. It’s the best grotty back room of a pub we’ve ever played in.

To give comedy’s premier venue a right good send off, we’re doing one last gig with some of our favourite acts that have graced our residencies there to give it a right good send off before they paint it pastel colours, put in the distressed mirrors and start serving trios of mini-burgers.

YOU HAVE TO COME!

THE FINAL EVER BIRTHDAY GIRLS COMEDY PARTY is on 23rd July at 8pm.

It features all these amazing people:

Hey birthday bitches

Camille was on Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway on…Saturday.

What direction do you think this will go in?

‘One way, or another’…you’re gonna like it.

Don’t go ‘crazy, crazy, crazy’… if it won’t load fast enough.

Beattie and Rose say ‘that’s what makes her beautiful’.
