It may not sound like something worth celebrating, but the second anniversary of Britain’s first lockdown is tomorrow and Big Brother Watch – a lobby group that has campaigned tirelessly against Covid restrictions – is holding a benefit at the Backyard Comedy Club in Bethnal Green in partnership with Comedy Unleashed. On the bill is the very funny Geoff Norcott – more or less the only right-wing comedian who’s allowed anywhere near the BBC – and ticket prices start at £20. Guaranteed to be lots of jokes about the absurdity of the lockdown policy.
I’ll be there propping up the bar in the interval so if you come along do say hello.
You can get tickets here.
