SSP at Mimetic: the best acts in comedy come to Enfield

Chris Dangerfield face

We're bringing Tony Law, Chris Dangerfield and more to Enfield July 20-26. Come join us...

Such Small Portions has programmed comedy at Mimetic Festival in Enfield for the last week in July. For those who don’t know the comedy calendar very well, this is a particularly amazing week to be scheduling some comedy: acts are dead keen to preview their brand new shows one last time before they take them to Edinburgh. That makes this week a great chance to see new comedy, first – and we’ve picked some corkers.
All shows start at 7.30pm at the Dugdale Centre and they are cheaper if you pick up your tickets online, so get clicking now. We will have interviews with all the acts up over the next few days so keep checking in for more!
We also penned a piece over on London Is Funny about why we chose these six acts, so make sure you read that.
UPDATE: we're very sorry to say we've had to cancel three of the gigs - but you can still get tickets for Chris and Tony later this week...
Saturday 20 July: Jay Foreman | Monday 22: Rachel Parris | Tuesday 23: Jonny & the Baptists | Wednesday 24: Luisa Omielan | Thursday 25: Chris Dangerfield | Friday 26: Tony Law
