A fixture of the north London comedy circuit is going online – with ticket prices dependent on the audience members’ situation during coronavirus lockdown.

Nice N’ Spiky Comedy club nights have been held across the city, with regular events at The Regent (Angel), Drink Shop Do (King’s Cross) and Paradise (Kensal Green).

With no end in sight to the closure of venues, promoter Clara Heimerdinger is launching an interactive chat show via Zoom, to take place every Wednesday.

Acts booked include Shazia Mirza, Josh Howie and Jen Brister.

“We’re really excited to be working with a brand new format of two of our best performers in conversation online, with stories, rambles, some audience questions, and anything else that arises,” said Clara.

“Standard tickets are £4, and it is £3 for furloughed people, and free for those unwaged or working in medical or care professions.”

The use of Zoom means audience members can choose to be seen by the acts, living room to living room, or they can turn the camera off, sit back and enjoy the show.
