Blaby Comedy Asylum

Blaby Comedy Asylum has been running for a couple of weeks now, but we could do with a few more members.

You do not have to think you are funny, and you don't have to perform if you don't want to. Members are writing, socialising, making props, singing songs – whatever they feel they can do and enjoy. The sessions run Wednesdays 1-3pm at the Civic Centre.
