The Comedy Store is a comedy club located in Soho, London, England, opened in 1979 by Don Ward and Peter Rosengard.It was named after The Comedy Store club in the United States, which Rosengard had visited the previous year. Starting out above a strip club, in 1982 they moved to Leicester Square at a premises they were able to take over formally in 1985.The club was the focus of the "alternative comedy" boom in the early 1980s and helped start the careers of many comedians, including Paul Merton, French & Saunders, Alexei Sayle, Rik Mayall, Adrian Edmondson, Ben Elton, Mark Thomas, Andrew Bailey, Pat Condell and John Sparkes.In October 1985, an improvisational group called The Comedy Store Players was formed, consisting of Mike Myers, Neil Mullarkey, Kit Hollerbach, Dave Cohen and Paul Merton. The group has had several lineup changes over the years, and now features a rotating team of Neil Mullarkey, Paul Merton, Josie Lawrence, Richard Vranch (a comedy improviser who also plays piano), Jim Sweeney, Lee Simpson and Andy Smart, together with frequent guest appearances. Several of The Comedy Store Players appeared on the BBC Radio 4 and Channel 4 comedy game show Whose Line Is It Anyway?.

The essential role of comedy in this world is to point out that life makes no sense. The plaudits that The London Comedy Club has been consistently getting signify that they have been doing a great job. Founded more than 20 years ago, this famous comedy club in London has the most opulent venue for comedy, the Kingsway Hall Hotel near Covent Garden in the West End of London. As a huge bonus, The London Comedy Club has all show tickets currently better than half-price. The special promo price is a fantastic discount of over 50% and is offered for visitors who avail of tickets before the end of the current month. This is really nifty for groups that want the best in entertainment when they come and visit London.

"Nothing more tedious than someone banging on about how the circuit is shit these days and how everything was better in the 80s. Au contraire, there's plenty of invention, variety and verve, not least from the Weirdos collective of comics, which includes Ben Target, Adam Larter, Karl Schultz and John Kearns and which onlydeals in nights of barely concealed chaos. They're endlessly creative, fun and take risks. Great things surely lie ahead for one or some of this lot." LondonisFunny.com 2012

Average people drink average beers. Who wants average? Life's too short.
Indie Ales is about helping people drink the best beer available to them. This means a huge range of ludicrously tasty beers, crafted by independent breweries with the kind of love, care and attention usually reserved for a small puppy at Christmas.
We believe that more people would drink these beers, if only they knew just how amazingly tasty they were. So we care deeply about helping people to discover superior ales, supporting the little guys who dare to be different and sharing our passion for great beer with the world. Enthusiasm is infectious and beer is delicious.... that's a pretty good combination in our eyes. Our events are a direct reflection of our mission.
Simply put, Indie Ales's tutored beer tasting experiences champion independent, hand crafted and incredibly scrumptious beer. We won't stick to yawn inducing pre-scripted notes, so you can forget about the PowerPoint slides. You may even learn a thing or two to show off to your mates next time it’s your round. And did we mention there was beer involved? You get a load of that too.

T'ai chi ch'uan or tàijíquán, often shortened to t'ai chi, taiji or tai chi in English usage, is an internal Chinese martial art practised for both its defense training and its health benefits. It is also typically practised for a variety of other personal reasons: its hard and soft martial art technique, demonstration competitions, and longevity. As a result, a multitude of training forms exist, both traditional and modern, which correspond to those aims. Some of t'ai chi ch'uan's training forms are especially known for being practised with what most people would categorise as slow movement.
Medical research has found evidence that t'ai chi is helpful for improving balance and for general psychological health, and that it is associated with general health benefits in older people.

One upon a time two northern gals with daft hair decided to embark on an ill advised venture to attempt to run a nightclub. Speaking in their dulcet, slightly irritating geordie tones the aforementioned newcastle bred lasses sat miserably in a pub with a notebook and decided to jot down ideas.
In the kitchen of creation wearing metaphorical heart print aprons, Liberty and Philippa mixed together sweet beats, glitter, feather boas and flashy lighting to form the beautiful haphazard concoction that is DIZZY DIZZY CLUB.
