IF ITS FUNNY, ITS FUNNY.
Purple Turtle is co-hosting a comedy night with Comedy Unleashed who promote free-thinking comedians who leave their self-censorship button at the door –stand-up comedians who think outside the box and make us laugh- they will showcase some of the best talent in Berkshire and around the London area. The event will take place on the first Tuesday of the month between 7.15pm-10pm. It will encourage new and upcoming comedians to join the circuit. Each evening will be a multitude of different comedians- each comedian will bring something different to the stage and will guarantee to have you in fits of laughter!
Previously they have had Scott Capurro – A thinking person’s comic, Scott is extremely Un-PC for an outspoken gay man from the liberal enclave of San Francisco, but that’s why we loved him! “Bravest and funniest comedian- if you thought comics like Ricky Gervais pushed boundaries then nothing will prepare you for Scott Capurro.”
We have a great Headliner next month the very funny Jay Handley. Jay Handley’s funny side has seen him perform at some legendary venues such as: The Glees, The Stands, The comedy Store, Jongleurs and more. It has also taken him to Edinburgh film festival regularly. The next stop for this very talented comedian will be The Purple Turtle and we couldn’t be more excited to have him.
Comedy Unleashed encourage new and up-and-coming comedians to try out new stuff. The current comedy circuit schools emerging comedians into a safe, tramline orthodoxy. Real talent is being wasted. Unleashed encourage an audience which is open-minded to test out ideas without the fear of being misunderstood and labelled.
Get yourself down to the Purple Turtle cellar bar on the 2nd April to watch an amazing line up of comedians- who have no self-censorship- it will be really, really, funny.
