Honk! comedy at Après Bar with President Obonjo, Chelsea Birkby & Dick Denham

Henley's sell-out monthly comedy night Honk! travels up the Thames for two free shows at Après Bar Reading at Oracle Riverside this December 14th & 19th. Show starts at 7.30pm with the bar open from 4-10pm.

Join at in the cosy & charming Après Bar at The Oracle Reading for a funny, festive & FREE stand-up show starring President Obonjo (ITVX, Comedian of the Year), Chelsea Birkby (Radio 4, Edinburgh) & Dick Denham (LGBTQ+ New Comedian 2022 Runner-up).

You can register your interest by booking, with seating on the night on a first come first served basis.

Chelsea Birkby regularly performs her smart, silly and open-hearted stand-up at the UK's top comedy clubs, as well as in New York and Paris and as tour support for Helen Bauer and Fern Brady.

She can be seen on BBC, heard on Radio 4, 5Live, Times Radio and various podcasts. She has written for several series of Mock The Week , Radio 4, The Independent and Metro. Her highly-acclaimed debut comedy hour won Best Debut at Edinburgh, was nominated for Best Show and listed in the funniest jokes of the fringe in The Times and The Telegraph, before transferring to the Soho Theatre for a sell-out run.

President Obonjo of the Lafta Republic rose to power in a coup 11 years ago and has been slaying audiences across Great Britain ever since. Recently the star of his own ITV special Stolen, the President’s solo shows have toured the UK and played at the Bath Comedy, Brighton Fringe and Edinburgh Fringe festivals to packed crowds and critical acclaim. Medals include The Malcolm Hardee Award, Comedian of the Year, Luton Comedian of the Year & Nobel Peace Prize (TBC).

Dick Denham is a queer thirtysomething comedian and writer based in Croydon.

A hit with queer and straight crowds alike, Dick has audiences in stitches with their surreal observations on being genderqueer in a heteronormative world, and the aspects of British culture that we all love to be indifferent about normally.
