Variety of Queens is the cool new comedy club on the block insistent on bringing the biggest variety of top notch comedy we possibly can in an hour. Come along and enjoy all of the fun from stand-up to musical comedy, character comedy to sketch, and everything in between. This month we have the most fabulous:
Ian Smith (BBC3’s Sweat the Small Stuff, BBC2’s Popatron) is an award-winning comedian.
Ian has performed three critically acclaimed Edinburgh solo shows, as well as appearing in the award-winning “underground comedy hit of the fringe” (Guardian), ‘Waiting for Gaddot’. His 2015 show, ‘Whereabouts’ was nominated for the Amused Moose Comedy Award and received rave reviews (★★★★★ The Mirror ★★★★★ Three Weeks ★★★★★ Angry Microwave ★★★★★ Black Diamond).
