Testing, testing...MIC CHECK twice a month!!
Here at 2Northdown we have two regular nights: Mic Check and The Good Friday Show that keep the good people and visitors of King’s Cross giggling throughout the month. If you haven’t had the chance to get along to either of these nights yet, have no fear - they each happen every month and always promise a cracking line up!
MIC CHECK (which happens twice every month) is a mixed bill night dedicated to letting the comedy circuit’s top comedians try out new material behind a mic. Be privy to some of the freshest new material and be some of the first ears to hear the top jokes of tomorrow!
The next show is Wednesday 17th October at 8pm and along with our amazing resident MC, Garrett Millerick, the show’s line up includes:

Alfie’s firebrand style of comedy has been forged from years of pushing boundaries and experimentation.

All done in an accessible and hilarious way. Getting the chance to see Alfie do his thing is always exciting and will have you wincing and howling with laughter. He’s also a really lovely bloke, so that helps.
