Glitter & Doom #7 feat. Jim Smallman & Helen Arney

Salutations fruit-pickers of the soul, it’s time for another jaunt down the golden orchard of comedy wonderment that is Glitter & Doom.

On Wed 2nd March, Jim Smallman and Helen Arney will be dangling from the branches of the Betsey Trotwood, ripe for the plucking. As per the standard arrangement, other low hanging fruit on offer will be Sam Astley & Charlie Pyne, with Julia Clark wilting on the branch and Kent Valentine, fallen to the floor and being eaten by squirrels.

Tickets will be just £5 and all proceeds will go to no form of registered charity whatsoever.

If you like the sweet nectar of comedy and the citrusy-freshness of live music, then you’ve really got no excuse not to be there!

Glitter & Doom #7

Glitter & Doom #6 feat. Nick Sun & Gerry Howell – 2nd Feb 2011

With the smell of winter’s defeat heavy in the air, we prepare to board the good ship Glitter & Doom for another voyage to the forbidden isles of comedy bliss.

Departing from the Betsey Trotwood on Wednesday 2nd February @ 8pm, we’ll sail the murky waters with guests NICK SUN (So You Think You’re Funny winner 2004) and GERRY HOWELL (general bouncer, cad and roustabout) joining the regular G&D sea-dogs Kent Valentine, Julia Clark, Sam Astley & Charlie Pyne at the helm.

Tales will be told, blood will be spilled and rum will be quaffed, so drag yourself out of that torpor which threatens to swallow you whole and bask in some radiant comedy and saucy music.

Tickets are £5 and are available here, or you can pitch up and get them on the door.

Glitter & Doom – Wednesday Sept 1st 2010

The inaugural Glitter & Doom will be held on Wed 1st September, 8pm at the Betsey Trotwood, 56 Farringdon Road
London EC1R 3BL

The night will feature surrealist TONY LAW & Australian one-liner machine KARL CHANDLER performing to a live musical score by our own Sam Astley on guitar and Charlie Pyne on double bass.

Kent Valentine & Julia Clark will be ruling the evening with an iron fist wrapped in a sordid punchline, so be punctual and nobody will get hurt.

Jokes and music will start at 8pm sharp, but the pub is open for food and drinks before hand, so don’t be afraid to turn up early.

Tickets are £5 and strictly limited, so:

If you don’t want to buy your tix online, reserve them by emailing theglitteranddoom@gmail.com with your name, number and required number of tickets.
