Comedy Streamed Live from The Covid Arms – live on Zoom

Enjoy some of the best comedy and entertainment out there from the comfort of your very favourite armchair. Our comics will be streaming from their homes all over the UK.

Please note you will only be able to
buy a ticket until 5pm on the day of the performance.

The money we raise will be split between performers and the Trussell Trust. When your livelihood disappears we don’t want to be the guys asking comedians to work for free.

You can purchase a link to the live stream or alternatively join our ‘front row’ seats where the performers will be able to see and interact with you (make sure you have a webcam and microphone).

The comedy will be hosted by Kiri Pritchard Mclean and the comedians performing will be:

Rhod Gilbert
Jessica Fostekew
Anna Man

There will also be live music from James Morton.

You can find out more information on the event page

Date: Saturday 30th May
Time: 7:00pm to 10:00pm

The Lockdown Comedy Guide

Due to only being able to work on the events website in my spare time, I couldn’t possibly bring you all of the amazing comedy taking place during lockdown. This is why I highly recommend you take a look at The Lockdown Comedy Guide.

They provide listings for all the standup (and standup-adjacent) online events happening during the lockdown. These are live events only, no pre-recorded events. There are events happening every day so if you like comedy, check them out 🙂
