The first edition of the event this week features a headline set from Mock the Week regular James Acaster.

After appearances on Stewart Lee’s Alternative Comedy Experience, Brady was given a chance to shine with a critically-acclaimed headline slot on Live at the BBC.
Also appearing will be Simon Munnery, Rhys James and Suzi Ruffell.
Simon Munnery is a multi-award-winner and stalwart of the alternative comedy scene.
A perennial innovator and long-time collaborator with Stewart Lee, Simon rightly has the reputation of one of the most exciting comics on the scene.
Rhys James is another comic who’s had a great year.
Appearances on Mock the Week and Russell Howard’s Stand-up Central have cemented his position as a future comedy superstar.
Last but not least, Suzi Ruffell hosts the show, fresh from a headline set on Live at the BBC.
Her innovative style captivates audiences with her engrossing tales of social ineptitude, celebrating her working class roots with a sideways look at the world.
The show may contain adult themes and language.
Tickets cost £25.
