Suspiciously Cheap Comedy is an award-winning mixed-bill comedy night, run by Edinburgh Newcomer Award-nominees Gein’s Family Giftshop and critically-acclaimed Goose, who have recently combined forces to make sketch supergroup Tarot. It is hosted by double Chortle Award-winner Kiri Pritchard-McLean, as seen on Have I Got News For You, The Russell Howard Hour, Stand Up Central, Hypothetical, Roast Battle and her own Comedy Central Special. She is also the co-creator and co-host of both the All Killa No Filla podcast and the live juggernaut Amusical.
Suspiciously Cheap Comedy is a new material night hosting the best names in the country, for the best audience in the country, at the best prices. They have attracted the biggest names in comedy already, including Daniel Kitson, Greg Davies, Rose Matafeo, Russell Howard, Sara Pascoe, Nina Conti, Nish Kumar, Lolly Adefope, James Acaster, Bridget Christie and Josh Widdicombe.
In terms of vibe, it'll be halfway between the greatest comedy show you've ever seen and a teenage house party somewhere really swanky because the parents have gone to Marbella for the week.
Expect the biggest names in comedy, in an iconic West End theatre, at suspiciously cheap prices, with all profits going to Shelter. Book early: last year it sold out before the line-up was fully announced.
The Ambassadors Theatre opened on 5th June 1913. The theatre presented Deburau in 1921 which saw Ivor Novello making his first stage appearance, Eugene O'Neill's The Emperor Jones starring Paul Robeson, The Mask of Virtue in 1935 which saw the West End stage debut of a 22 year old Vivien Leigh and Spring Meeting in 1938 with Margaret Rutherford. Britain's longest running production The Mousetrap by Agatha Christie opened at The Ambassadors on 25th November 1952 and played here until its 21st Birthday in 1973 when it transferred next door to the larger St Martin's Theatre.
