Presents is a big, silly comedy night with a difference, as comedian DJs punctuate the show and fuel the dance floor afterwards. The show will be held at the newly relaunched Albany, Great Portland Street, and produced by Objectively Funny. The inaugural event will be headlined by Brian Gittins, the beloved character act played by David Earl, famed for his roles in Extras and Derek. The opening act is Rhys James, as seen on Mock the Week and Russell Howard's Stand-Up Central. There will also be appearances from Swedish-Chinese stand-up Evelyn Mok, who was featured on the BBC's New Talent Hotlist '17, and anarchy-laden Luke McQueen, described by the Guardian as "A monstrously overgrown baby that has burst free of its play-pen." The MC for the evening will be Elf Lyons, who was nominated for Best Show at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards last year. As well as the comedy though, there will be appearances from DJs before the show, during the intervals and late into the night. This will feature Conor Jatter from Channel 4-featured improv group the RH Experience, and Sunil Patel, who has featured heavily in TV shows such as Viceland's Bobby and Harriet Get Married. They will play an array of music from hip hop to afrobeat via jazz and soul. Objectively Funny produce comedy shows across London and their festival in September was lauded as "the art form's cutting edge" by the Guardian. The show will take place Saturday 3rd February, with doors opening at 7pm. The comedy will finish around 10.30, the music around 1am. Tickets are £12 or £10 for students.
