Join some of comedy’s finest up and coming and established names on Friday nights in the Elgar Room. The evening will be hosted by Richard Herring, who has enjoyed phenomenal cult success as a writer and performer and is an innovator in the world of podcasts. Richard’s Leicester Square Theatre Podcast sees him interview top comedians in front of a live audience and is then released online both as videos and podcasts for free. Aisling Bea is an Irish actor, award winning stand-up, a writer and solid guest at a dinner party. On December 2014, she won the British Comedy Award for Best Female TV Comedian. Sheis joined by Gareth Richards. Richards’ hilarious stand-up, silly jokes and gorgeously low-key comedy songs have made him an instant favourite on the comedy circuit. In 2010 he was nominated for Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer. Gareth has appeared on Russell Howard’s Good News, Live at the Electric (BBC3) and live on Radio 1. Gareth co-hosted Frank Skinner’s Sony award-winning Absolute Radio show for two years, supporting Frank on his 2014 tour. Over 18s only. Please arrive on time as latecomers may not be admitted. This event takes place in the Elgar Room and has cabaret-style unreserved seating. Enter via Door 8 of the Royal Albert Hall. Ticket Face value is £12.00 with £1.23 in fees.
