May PunchUp: The Monks & friends

Come to PunchUp Comedy on Friday May 4th with holy-rollin’ sketch duo The Monks, supported by Pam Tilling and Carmen D’Cruz, and presented by Juliet Brando.

As ever, it’s £5 entry on the door and starts at 8pm in the Deep Blue Cellar beneath Whistle Trago – Cafe/Bar.

The Monks are Kevin Moore and Yazz Fetto. They think they can lay claim to being the only Christian comedy sketch group in the UK. As such, they not only do shows in clubs, pubs and small sweaty comedy rooms but also chapels, churches and small sweaty vestries.

Following the sell out success of their 2013 fringe play ‘Hallelujah House’, The Monks have put together a new sketch show called ‘The All New Ten Commandments’. The full version of this show is 60 minutes but The Monks often perform sections of the show for sets at clubs. These sets vary in length from 5 minutes to 30 minutes.

Each of the commandments gets the comedy sketch treatment; some get more than one, making this perhaps one of the best value sketch comedy shows ever! Even penny pinching, backstabbing disciple Judas Iscariot would approve!
