North London Tavern375 Kilburn High Rd
London NW6 7QB
The Comedy Tavern is Kilburn's only (and therefore best) comedy night. Free on the door or £5 to reserve online. Pretty good way to spend a Tuesday night.

Come see comedians try out their newest material. Held upstairs at the North London Tavern on Tuesdays. Doors 19:30, show 20:00. Ends 22:00.

New show from stand up and BBC’s New World Order writer.

In her youth, Meryl was called all sorts of fruity names and revelled in what she considered terribly bad behaviour. This side of the millennium it seems that behaviour would be considered quaint. With her daughter tobogganing into puberty and the menopause coursing through her veins, Meryl questions what her kids are being sold, and if any of it makes sense.

Armed with her unusual combination of mischievous warmth and confident dysfunctionality; Meryl presents a show about the age of pop, porn and popcorn; where consent is a hashtag, feminism is a T shirt, and you can see a middle aged woman twerking whilst looking at her youth through the lens of MeToo.

Directed by Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee Thom Tuck

“The stories are awkward, humiliating, awful and hilarious, occasionally shocking but deeply compelling” ~ iNews
