Comedy for queers
___________________________________________________

Celeste is a comedian. Sue is a drag queen. Together they represent the ultimate union of cabaret and comedy

Basically the comedy scene can be way het, so we're creating a play time for funny queerness.

So whether you’re a straight man in chinos or a pansexual in mink, we have comedy for you. All welcome.

Mawaan Rizwan
'BBC Three favourite Mawaan Rizwan is a mischievous performer, with a no-holds-barred physicality and high-wattage charm’ (Guardian).
‘Masterful and supremely hilarious stupidity’ (TotalTheatre.org.uk).
Mawaan Rizwan is one of the UK's most exciting comedians, combining physical clowning with absurdist gags, cultural commentary, and quite a lot of slut drops. He's hosted his own BBC documentary (How Gay Is Pakistan?), is a children's TV presenter, and won Youtube's 'Next Comic' award.
