A new comedy night for LGBTQ comedians, artists and writers hosted by Emily Pope. The more we sit in rooms laughing, the more we are distracted with our own sense of humour. The theme of the first night is self deprecation; can this mode of delivery ever be productive?

Emily Pope is an artist based in London. She is currently making a sitcom called 'The Sitcom Show'. She is interested in labour (particularly economic precarity in relation to millennials, but also what her mums' friends did to earn money in the 90's for example; trying to sell chicken wire sculptures of otters), characterizations of 'the worker', conversation, monologues, feminist video art, series making, mainstream and experimental television, social realism, American folk singers (mainly Nanci Griffith) and other things. Her work (sometimes) explores the female comic as a position to subvert and repurpose.
