Battle of the Wits - Charity Comedy Night
14th March 2019
Shepherd Neame is offering one lucky Kent comedian the opportunity to perform alongside some of the UK’s top comedians at an exclusive London gig. We have invited 25 amateur comedians from across the county to take part in a Battle of the Wits at our events venue The Old Brewery Store.
The comedians will be given an allotted time to perform, attempting to win over the audience and avoid being kicked off by those holding the ‘gong’ cards. Once all three are shown, the comedian has to leave the stage. Those that survive the initial knock-out round will then be given another chance to perform and compete for audience votes.
The winner will then have the opportunity to perform alongside comedians including Rory Bremner, Alexander Armstrong, Ben Miller, Ronni Ancona and Hal Cruttenden at The Mighty Boy Comedy Night taking place in the Underbelly on London’s South Bank on June 5.
Proceeds from the Battle of the Wits will go to Shepherd Neame’s Charity of the Year the Silas Pullen Fund in aid of the Brain Tumour Charity, set up in the memory of Faversham schoolboy Silas Pullen, who died from an aggressive brain tumour in 2013. It is this partnership which prompted the event, as The Mighty Boy Comedy Night has been organised by Silas’ parents, Ben and Sarah Pullen, to raise money for the Silas Pullen Fund.
Date: Thursday, March 14
Time: 7.30pm to 11pm
