I started going to comedy clubs about 10 years ago…it became something that I would even do when I was traveling to different cities. There is something about the rawness of it that got me hooked. Some nights were great, others not so great, but I still give kudos to anyone to gets up on stage and tries to make people laugh. The Sunday Comedy Night at the Lyric in Hammersmith kicks off January 30th with Roisin Conaty, Simon Evans, Nick Helm, Arthur Smith and is guest hosted by Stephen Grant.
