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 🙂
