Main Info

100% raw improvised sketch from the following FANTASTIC performers:

Chris Lumb (BBC3: Russell Howards Good News)Eddie FrenchNatalie Smeaton (ITV1: Britain’s Got Talent)Tom KingMandy McCarthy, and Phil Smith (BBC1: This is MY House).

If you’ve never seen improvised comedy before, you are in for a right treat. All the games, scenarios, and situations are formed and created from your suggestions… that’s right YOU, the audience. It’s very much in the style of ‘Whose Line is it Anyway’ but with a modern twist… and normally a little riskier and ruder and too.

The Discount Comedy Checkout has been performing all over the UK for over ten years and have gained rave reviews at various festivals, the Edinburgh Fringe, and a number of popular weekend comedy clubs.

Opening Act:

Jay Droch is a Comedian, Host and Entertainer from Birmingham. Beginning his comedy journey with Jumprov, the UK’s first BAME improv theatre company, Jay has become a regular face on the West Midlands thriving theatre circuit. In 2018, he took his steps into stand up comedy and has gone on to perform at the most prestigious venues and theatres across the UK.

Jay has opened for some of the biggest stars in British comedy, including Guz Khan (BBC Three’s Man Like Mobeen), Tez Ilyas (The Tez O’clock Show), Marlon Davis (Live at the Apollo), Curtis Walker (The Real McCoy) and Sideman (BBC Radio 1Xtra).

Jay made his broadcast debut on the BBC Asian Network Comedy night in April 2019 and has gone on to become a finalist for Birmingham Comedy Festival Breaking Talent Award 2019.

Jay’s high energy performance combines impersonations, improvisation and unique (if not insane) observational humour, with plenty of pop culture references for good measure.
