Red In The Face by wearesme

On Tuesday evening SME attended one of London’s freshest nights of comedy, Red In The Face, at Punk in Soho. Only their third event so far and it was completely sold out, even a majority of the cast from Holby City made it along. But, this came as no surprise once the comedians hit the stage because they were all completely hilarious.

With an aim to showcase the UK’s newest comedy talent, they did not disappoint. Each comedian was different in their own rights; from a musician-come-comedian, to an American adjusting to life in the UK. And a trio of sketch comedians, to a ranting fuzzy-haired Essex chap with a hate for hoodies.

There were too many funny moments to mention but one particular line that sticks out is, when talking about Nick Griffin one of the comedians barked; “Never before has a man looked so much like a smell”. Genius.

We highly recommend that you get down a Red In The Face comedy night as soon as you can because the tickets sell out pretty damn fast!

Luckily for you, we have managed to get our grubby little mitts on a pair of tickets for the next night at Vibe Bar, Brick Lane on Tuesday 22 June. If you want them for yourself then all you have to do is enter our competition:
