For the first time since March, Norwich’s very own Hooma Comedy is bring live comedy to our fine city – and not just for one night, but two.
Making full use of the outdoor space at Bowling House, Hooma will be putting some of the city’s finest comedians in front of a live audience – at a safe distance in line with social distancing rues.
Hooma founder Martin Westgate said: “It’s been really tough for the comedy industry, and we’ve all been champing at the bit to get back on a stage. But we had to wait until it was safe for the audience as well as the acts.
“It’s been a tough year, and we all need a laugh now more than ever – and thanks to Bowling House this will be happening this weekend.”
On Friday, July 24, Giggles In The Garden will be bringing Nelson Gombakomba, Jimmy Rudiger, Tom Alban and Louie Green to the Dereham Road venue, while those with tickets for Saturday, July 25, will get to see Colin Daniels, Kahn Johnson, Trish Dunn and David Alfie Ward.
Mr Westgate will be the MC on both nights.
He said: “We have a proven track record of promoting comedians from Norwich and Norfolk, and Giggles In The Garden will be no different. All of them are hugely popular with our regular audiences, and I know they guys coming to Bowling House will have a great night with us.”
