Kollider, Castle House, Angel Street, S3 8LU

Square Hole Comedy Club

Sun. 9 June 2019

The Red Deer

One of Sheffield’s hidden comedy treasures, tucked into the Red Deer's intimate function room. This month they’ll be headlined by Cheekykita, who is herself a hidden treasure: a larger-than-life clown known for oddball physical performances.

Tales Of Whatever

An Edinburgh Fringe preview from a Sheffield alumni. Expect notes, deviation, uncertainty and a lower price than you’ll get after August – at preview shows, there’s magic in watching the primordial potential take shape in front of your eyes.
