Flock Comedy? Ken will fill in the details, but here’s a clue….

You’ve heard of a “pop-up” restaurant, well we’re a “pop-up”comedy club. We bring the lights, sound, stage and entertainment to your venue, whether that’s a village hall, a marquee, the back room of a club or even a conference hall.

We help good causes raise dosh through the medium of laughter. We run comedy tents at beer festivals and music festivals and we provide comedians for corporate events too. (From Flock Comedy website)

Paganini Caprice 24..with Commander -in-Chief and Craig Ogden
