Debut hour from nice young man, Sam Lake.

In 2020, Sam wrote a show all about his upcoming wedding. Then both the wedding and show were swiftly cancelled.

Based on his own personal love story, it’s a show about reassessing your goals when things don’t go how you planned.

But it’s also funny. And there’s cake. We’ll have a lovely time.

As well as starring in All 4’s The Joy of Missing Out and Dave’s The Comedy Guide to Life, Sam has also won Leicester Square New Comedian of The Year.


We operate “Pay More If You Can” pricing to ensure that our shows remain affordable and accessible to everyone.
