Lafter Eight – Comedy in London on 15 May

Those of you who like your stand-up comedy thin and minty will be... No, I'm not sure that's a good way to open a blog post.

Lafter Eight is a new comedy night in London, headlined by a couple of names familiar to Greenbelters. Paul Kerensa (above) is ginger, Cornish, and has no belly button, but don't let that worry you - he's a top-flight stand-up, and a joke writer of magnificence, as his work for Not Going Out and Miranda has proven. Andy Kind has regularly performed at Greenbelt, as well as at the Edinburgh Festival and Spring Harvest. The night is MCed by Rob Thomas, who you might recognise from Last Orders Happy Hour at last year's Festival.

It's taking place on Saturday 15 May at The Miller near London Bridge, starting at 8pm. Tickets are £5.50 (including "free After Eight mint"!) and must be booked in advance - there are no tickets available on the door. Strictly over-18s only.

The ethos is "clean comedy for adults", so this is a chance to laugh in a safe environment, with no fear of Frankie Boyle-style rants, or Jim Jeffries.
