Soho Theatre is bringing the lols this October with a stand-up special to celebrate Black History Month.
If you’re after an unforgettable night of comedy, Soho Theatre have just the ticket. On October 27, you can expect a stellar stand-up set, with a host of brilliant comedians, to celebrate Black History Month.
Leading the charge are Thaniya Moore and Aurie Styla, who will be joined by others, including Phileo Huff and Michael Akadiri. Thaniya – who has appeared on BBC’s Mock the Week and Netflix’s Duchess – is lauded as one of the hardest working women in comedy by her peers, and was voted the Funny Women winner back in 2018. She is a regular on the comedy circuit and hosts her own comedy nights, Moore Laughter. If that wasn’t enough, she’s also previously supported Dane Baptiste, Desiree Birch and Katherine Ryan, so you’re guaranteed belly laughs throughout the evening.
Aurie Styla, whose voice you’ll recognise from The Scene on BBC Radio London, has been in the comedy game for over a decade. In that time, he’s racked up sell-out tours, monthly comedy residencies and appearances on some of ITV and Channel 4’s best comedy shows. You’ll have seen him on Jonathan Ross’ Comedy Club, Don’t Hate The Playaz on ITV, and Mo Gilligan’s Black British & Funny documentary on Channel 4, to name just a few of his accolades.
The show will take place at Soho Downstairs, located in Soho Theatre. At this underground comedy and cabaret club, the interiors are described as “1920s Berlin meets 50s New York meets 21st-century Soho”. It’s the ideal spot to settle in for a night of hilarity on a cold Autumn’s eve. Find out more and buy a ticket here.
