The Bristol Cable is your investigative, independent local newspaper, and one of the pioneering community institutions that makes Bristol what it is. To celebrate yet another edition of the Cable (Edition #32), we are teaming up with The People’s Comedy to put on a fantastic night of political, social and cultural comedy featuring some of the most exciting grassroots comedians of Bristol and beyond.

TIX: hdfst.uk/E84160

The Bristol Cable and The People’s Comedy share a lot in common. We both believe profoundly in the power of collectivism and working together. The Bristol Cable launched in 2014 as an alternative media platform, owned by its members with stories suggested by them too. In a similar vein, The People’s Comedy launched as an alternative to commercialized comedy (the kind that markets itself to vast audiences at the expense of substance), and to be a platform for the evocative and daring, whilst also ensuring that all acts are paid.

The Bristol Cable: 
✔️ Awarded the 2019 British Journalism Award for local journalism
✔️ Shortlisted for the 2020 Orwell Foundation Prize
✔️ Owned by 2,600+ dedicated members in Bristol

The People’s Comedy:
✔️ Nominated for best themed night in the UK in 2020 (Chortle)
✔️ Raised thousands of pounds for grass-roots comedians
✔️ Respected and loved by audiences and acts alike

DOORS ARE NOW AT 7; START IS 7:30 SHARP

Lineup includes:
Donna Landy
Kate Martin
Omari Douglas 
Katie Price
Kitty Messalina
Vanessa Hammock 
& MC, Brendan Common

The night will be being photographed, so if would like to avoid any photos, please just email us at admin@thepeoplescomedy.org.

This event kicks off our brand new events programme for 2023. Find out more about the benefits of being a Cable member, over and above supporting the investigative journalism that makes a difference for the people of Bristol.
