The Alternative Book Club

The Alternative Book Club presents an unconventional comedy show about books where there is absolutely NO required reading. Prepare to be entertained – and informed – by a phenomenal line up of award-winning comics and brilliant friends who will be dissecting anything Lit: from John Milton’s Paradise Lost to Kim Kardashian’s Selfie, and everything in between. All hosted by your host, Shirley Halse.

“A wonderfully entertaining concept.” - Alex Farrow, director of Jericho Comedy

“This is my favourite gig, I love the mix of performers and topics, I love performing here myself and it's pretty much the only gig I go to as a punter.” Nick Page (BGT Semi-Finalist)
