Sticky Mike's basement is a great intimate venue for showcasing new comedy. Brian Gittins knows this well and continues to bring some of the best names from the alternative circuit to perform in such an intimate space.
For Christmas the space is gonna be so cosy it’ll be a bit like being snuggled up inside Santa’s sack for the night.
What more could you possibly want than Angelos Epithemiou who will no doubt be bringing his own unique brand of Christmas cheer along for the night. I expect he keeps it in that carrier bag of his.
He’ll be joined by Andy Field. Andy has made an impact on the comedy scene with his unique style and fresh approach to traditional stand up. He has hosted his own webseries in the Tub, in which he interviewed up-and-coming bands in the bath (of course). He has a Masters in Creative Writing from Brunel.
Making a welcome return will be Brian's resident magician and illusionist Mr Jamie Raven. He'll definitely have something festive up his sleeve for us.
As well as all of that we have some super secret extra special guests for you… can’t say who they are but you absolutely won’t want to miss out on what we have lined up for you. It’s all part of Brian’s Xmas magic so you’ll just have to come on over to the Gittins Christmas bash to find out. There might even be some mince pies.
As usual the proceedings will be MC'd badly by Brian Gittins. Plus we have Brian's naughty spots unleashing some of the newest comedy talent there is to offer right now.
'Gittins To Know You' is a marvel of a carefully orchestrated shambles, filled with glee, spontaneity, and a knowledge that there’s nothing else like it. This is the home of oddballs, lunatics, and risks, and the bunker environment suits it. As does the city and the audience, who keep coming back for more of this anarchic joy.' - Latest 7 - 2016
