By Teddington People | Monday, September 02, 2013, 22:12
If you're looking for a restaurant, a pub and a comedy club in Teddington on a Friday night then The Dead Parrot Society definitely ticks all three boxes.
Opened last year by local comedienne, novelist and Guardian columnist Viv Groskop together with events organiser Maggie Tibble, the venue for the night's entertainment is The Royal Oak in Teddington. The line-up consists of some of the best up and coming talent from across London and often from Teddington itself.
Viv, who comperes the evening has received rave reviews from loads of people - you can see some of them below. She's funny, charming and puts you at ease during the evening's performances. Alongside her on stage this Friday, you'll see Nena Edwards, Laurence Owen, Sara Pascoe, Henry Von Stifle and Bisha K. Ali. You can have a look at what other people have said about them too.
The current run of the Dead Parrot Society starts on Friday 6 September and ends on 6 December. There's one a month and you can book online at: http://www.thedeadparrotsociety.co.uk
Doors open at 8am and tickets are only a tenner each - well worth it for a local night out that'll leave you with a smile on your face.
You'll find The Dead Parrot Society downstairs at The Royal Oak, 172 High Street, Teddington. TW11 8HU.
