Hilarious comedy at The Met on the First Thursday of every month. With Angelos Epithemiou, Daliso Chaponda, Olivia Lee and MC Justin Moorhouse.

Somewhat appropriately, Angelos Epithemiou first shot to fame in Vic and Bob’s Shooting Stars. Drafted in to replace Johnny Vegas he soon developed a less than healthy obsession with Ulrika Jonsson. Wilfully weird and completely shambolic, Britain’s favourite Greek has gone from unemployment, to owning a burger van in Neasden, until it was wrecked by his brother.

“Daft brilliance” The Guardian; “Wonderfully funny” Shropshire Star; Best Comedy Breakthrough Artist The British Comedy Awards

From Malawi to Britain via Canada, former refugee Daliso Chaponda has appeared on everything from QI to Britain’s Got Talent, from the Royal Variety Performance to his own, critically acclaimed Radio 4 series.

A bold, fearless and energetic performer who very nearly became a vicar, but that’s a different story for another time…

Justin Moorhouse won’t need any introduction to Bury’s comedy fans. Whether you’ve seen him on tour, at The Comedy Store, on QI, Coronation Street, Celebrity Mastermind, Live At The Apollo, Dave’s One Night Stand or even Phoenix Nights (ask your mum!), you’ll know why he is constantly in demand as one of the UK’s funniest performers. Peerless performance skills backed by an arsenal of carefully crafted routines and tightly written gags make Justin a surefire success in front of any audience as thousands of fans will gladly testify.

“If good old-fashioned joke-telling is your thing, then Justin Moorhouse is your man” Fest

Newcastle’s Jake Donaldson is your middle act.

First Thursday Comedy at The Met is booked by Comedy In A Van.
