THE LAUGHTER FACTORY
‘Social Faux Pas! tour’
If laughter is one of life’s treasures, this month’s trove would make the Queen of England go bright green with envy. Crowning this diamond-studded tiara of pleasure, Eleanor Tiernan, the undisputed Royalty of social faux pas, will be bestowing upon us a mater class in stand up. Stewart Lee’s favorite woman in comedy (after Bridget Christie, his wife of course!) is one of the most adored stand ups touring the UK at this moment.
After realizing that throwing people out at closing time was easier if you made them laugh on the way out, former doorman, Emmanuel Sonubi, has taken the comedy world by storm. Headining every major club in the UK, there isn’t a comic on the circuit that doesn’t dread following this comedic force of nature.
Finally, alerting ‘Comic Con’ fans, Mike Capozzola, is an absolute star of this popular event. If you fancy a spot of time travel, with a hilarious touch, this man is definitely for you.
So if you need to find out what happens when you mix a bouncer, a feminist and a time traveller together? This could be the best night out you’ve ever had.

London based Emmanuel Sonubi has only been on the comedy circuit for what feel like five minutes and he’s already garnering himself a reputation as one to watch out for...
Ex-bouncer Emmanuel was born and bred in North London where he extracts most of his hilarious interactions with the vibrant cockneys and reprobates he has encountered. Now, as a father of two, the soon to be headliner has a wealth of material of playing pranks with his kids as well as his questionable parenting skills.
Since 2015 he has performed at numerous high profile clubs including at The Comedy Store, The Glee Club, Comedy Loft, The Comedy Café, Top Secret Club, Butlin’s Weekenders, The International Comedy Festival Rotterdam, Altitude Comedy Festival at The Ski Show, plus regular shows in Ibiza, Cyprus, Turkey and Holland. He has even headlined the Bestival comedy tent (by accident)
