A ‘What’s On’ voluntary post for AFTERMIRTH & The Riverfront, Newport.
The journey of parenthood is a magical and maddening one so what better way to cope with it than through stand up comedy! AFTERMIRTH is an adult comedy club that you can bring your baby to.
Each month we’ll have 3 top circuit comedians delivering their usual club routines so the material is mature and sweary with the odd birth story flash back…. The only difference is it’s during the day. Babies under 18 months are welcome, but please don’t bring older toddlers because they tend to heckle!
This special afternoon gig has reduced amplification and a dimmed room so no one will notice those red eyes from sleepless nights. You’re encouraged to bottle, breast or Haribo feed and you can walk about or shake Mittens the Special Rabbit in order to soothe your offspring and no one will moan or mutter if your little one cries or screams.
There’s snacks and drinks available in the cafe too so treat yourself to cake and a Prosecco, you deserve it!
The gig is also open to parents, Aunts, Uncles, Grans, carers, in fact anyone who needs some afternoon comedy and doesn’t mind some cute babies in attendance.
AFTERMIRTH is lovingly curated and compered by Angie Belcher.
