Aftermirth Daytime Comedy Club

A well-loved comedian is set to perform a show about parenthood and all its wonders and the Times is giving readers a chance to win tickets to see it.

The set has been designed for mothers to take along their babies so a ‘weekday afternoon feels like the new Saturday night’.

Stand-up comedian Angie Belcher says the best way to cope with the ‘magical and maddening’ world of parenting must be through comedy.

Her show, Aftermirth Daytime Comedy Club, contains mature content and the ‘odd birth story flashback’.

Angie, who is also a performance poet and actor, was a finalist for both the What The Frock Best Comedy National Newcomer and North East Theatre Best Spoken Word Show awards, both in 2015.

She will also be joined by comedians Cerys Nelmes, who has been described as a ‘warm gal with plenty of laughs’ by the Sunday Herald, and ‘original 
and ‘proper funny’ act Louise Leigh.

Food and toys are provided and the comedy gig is open to aunts, uncles, grans, carers and ‘anyone who enjoys being surrounded by cute babies’.

The venue has reduced amplification walls and a dimmed room and bottle and breast-feeding is welcomed at the show.

Aftermirth will be performed at Clevedon’s Theatre Shop, in Queens Square, on April 23 from 11am-12.30pm.

The show is not suitable for babies over 18 months old.

Tickets, priced £8, are available at www.theatreshop.org.uk or call 03336 663366.

The Times has teamed up with Clevedon’s Theatre Shop to offer readers the chance to win two pairs of tickets to see the show.
