“We learnt a lot and each event will be an improvement of the last, whilst still allowing for the fun and spontaneity of the live event.

“This is Just the Tonic Comedy Club’s second live stream event and will feature comedians that we usually book for stand up doing different things as we try to get to grips with the new world order.

“Buy a ticket with an open mind.
