Urban comedy in the park
DATES: 24th June 12
Affinity Arts Entertainment and First Creation Productions present the first ever UK urban stand up comedy showcase.
Featuring the very best of the UK's urban comedy, Eddie Kadi and Kojo headline with guests including Curtis Walker, Slim, Will E Robo, Axel and Kane Brown.
Eddie Kadi was the first ever black comedian to perform a one man show to a sold out audience at the 15,000 capacity O2 Arena.
Kojo is one of Urban comedy's biggest success stories, not only does he have his own show on MTV but he is also the current breakfast show presenter on Choice FM radio. With numerous sold out one man shows under his belt and an army of loyal fans this comedian is one not to be missed.
Eddie and Kojo are joined by Curtis Walker, probably best known as star of the iconic BBC comedy sketch show, The Real McCoy. Also appearing is Will E Robo, one of the world’s finest comedians and star of Def Comedy Jam and energetic comedian Slim, who has completed three consecutive sold out UK tours.
Now in its 80th season, the award-winning Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre is a London landmark – a firm fixture of summer in the city, providing a cultural hub in the beautiful surroundings of a Royal Park.
Its steeply raked auditorium is one of the largest in London with 1,240 seats, yet those who attend say it is one of the most intimate.
Each night an incomparable atmosphere is created by the buzz of people enjoying their theatregoing in every sense: people setting up hampers on the picnic lawn, filling their glasses with wine or drinking Pimms in the bar as the fairy lights twinkle in the trees.
Yet the Open Air Theatre is not just about an amazing atmosphere, it is about remarkable storytelling too. Built upon a core of outstanding dramatic credentials, we aim to present bold and dynamic productions that stimulate the senses. Weather and climate add a thrilling contribution to our work, making the relationship between performer, text and audience a truly unique event at every performance.
