Fringe Amused Moose Award Winner at Next Honk! Comedy Event

After six sell-out shows so far, the latest Honk! comedy night has been announced for next month, with three stand-ups as seen and heard on ITVX, BBC3, Radio 4 and Capital Xtra.

Taking place on Friday 23 June at 8.00pm in the inviting setting of The Relais Henley, the night will feature Chelsea Birkby, President Obonjo and Leah Davis. This follows the success of the first Honk! to take place at the hotel last month, with another full-house show next week (25 May).

At last year’s Edinburgh Festival Chelsea Birkby won the Amused Moose Award for Best Debut Show, was shortlisted for Comedian’s Choice Best Show Award and featured in Funniest Jokes of the Fringe by the Times & Telegraph. A writer for Mock The Week and featured on BBC3, Radio 4 & 5 Live, her sell-out Soho Theatre run made the British Comedy Guide Top 10. The unique President Obonjo, who recently starred in his own ITVX special Stolen, returns to Henley having previously performed at the Kenton Theatre. And Leah Davis, also no stranger to the town having hosted several events at Henley Literary Festival, was a finalist for both British Comedian of the Year and Funny Women in 2022.

Tickets are £9 and available via Eventbrite. Attendees also enjoy a private bar and exclusive pre-show offers from The Relais on the night.
