Blizzard Comedy is a proud safe space with explicit content policies on Racism/sexism/homophobia/transphobia/ablism, and a general blanket ban on being a dick. We also make every effort to content warn any potentially difficult or triggering material ahead of time, and we keep audience participation to a minimal, and only with consent (signified by a sticker you can opt to wear if you are okay with being actively involved with the show)
On top of that we try to have a wide array of acts (subject to availability) So you can be confident you’re never going to end up watching straight white men in shirts for 2 hours, unlike some other comedy clubs which shall remain nameless. (Hint; it’s most of them)
Headlining the February show is the one and only SEAN MORLEY
As heard on the BBC New Comedy Awards 2016
“Sean Morley’s act is a performance harvested from nightmare, but fuelled by friendship. A desperate need to connect with people but a lack of tools to do so and a medium that requires a great degree of insincerity.”
“delightfully ambitious, endlessly creative … prepare to laugh very hard indeed” 4 stars The List
“Absurdist comedy from cult comic hero on the rise” 4 stars The Wee Review

“Ava Liversidge is the real deal, big flips and tight tricks. Pristine anti-comedy from the mind of a five star Michelin chef. Watch her dance, then reach for the skies – it’s comedy time”
SOPHIE G COLLINS
“Sophie was brought up to see the good in the world and to enjoy bad puns. Then she became an adult and noticed the world was on fire. She got angry, got tired, she got into comedy. The result is a pinch of the apocalypse, a hefty glug of feminism, and an embarrassment of cheap gags.”
“well moisturised socialist” – Sophie Powell
