Token Man Comedy£8 – £10
Token Man Comedy (LINE-UP UPDATE)
Token Man Comedy is a fantastic comedy night at The Exchange which always seeks to feature women comedians as well as including a ‘Token Man’ in the line-up.
We present the best in female comedy and female comedians but because we think it’s important to be inclusive, we always have a chap on the bill and he’s always one of the good ones so fear not!
Reversing the zeitgeist of the traditional, box ticking girl, on most traditional comedy nights or game show panels, we thought it would be fun to see how it works the other way round.
Due to unforeseen circumstances Suzi Ruffell will no longer be headlining this Token Man Comedy*

Alesha Dixon – “Very simple, brilliantly funny from start to finish. Every impression was spot on. It was a faultless audition; I’m very excited about you.”
