Celebrate Christmas 2017 with The Glee

The Glee at Christmas

Luxurious Christmas menu + top-notch comedy line-ups

It’s all about Christmas at The Glee this December as the famed comedy club celebrates the festive season in style, with top-notch comedy line-ups and a luxurious menu in Birmingham, Cardiff and Nottingham.

Perfect for work parties and seasonal treats, December’s three-course meal has been especially designed to cater for a variety of tastes, and kicks off with a Xmas Starter Plater, featuring a selection of meat and fish pate, roast pepper hummus, olives, caramelised onion chutney, focaccia, flat bread and Gressini.

The main course boasts five mouth-watering choices.

For those looking for a traditional festive meal, look no further than the Individual Three Bird Roast: turkey, duck and corn-fed chicken, wrapped in bacon with a cranberry and sage stuffing, served with a cranberry and red wine jus, gratin potatoes and winter vegetables.

Or if you prefer to save your Christmas dinner for December 25, why not opt for Slow Cooked British Pork Belly glazed with an apricot and thyme sauce, or Cod Loin wrapped in smoked salmon with a lemon and basil sauce? They’re both available as gluten-free options too!

There’s also Pulled Turkey Burger, with red cabbage and cranberry slaw, topped with a sage and onion stuffing ball and a pig-in-a-blanket, and served with sweet potato fries, plus veggie and vegan options: Grilled Portobello Mushroom and Fried Halloumi Burger (vegetarian) and Grilled Portobello Mushroom and Fried Tofu Burger (vegan). Both come with red cabbage and cranberry slaw, sage and onion stuffing ball and sweet potato fries.

And if you’re still peckish after that seasonal chow-down, head to the festive Dessert Grotto where you’ll find an enticing selection of cheesecakes, tortes, pastries and fresh fruit.

Meanwhile, on stage, enjoy a cavalcade of outstanding comic talent who’ll ensure you’re well entertained, including:

…. (BIRMINGHAM) award-winning Irish podcaster Jarlath Regan, Canadian Dana Alexander, Aussie artist/ comedian Bec Hill, star of cult C4 hit Almost Royal Ed Gamble, and the ever-excellent Zoe Lyons.

…. (CARDIFF) star of cult C4 hit Almost Royal Ed Gamble, award-winning Irish podcaster Jarlath Regan, Rhod Gilbert collaborator Lloyd Langford, and the appropriately named Jarred Christmas.

…. (NOTTINGHAM) star of cult C4 hit Almost Royal Ed Gamble, award-winning Irish podcaster Jarlath Regan, musical comedians Kate Lucas and Rob Deering, and Edinburgh Fringe favourite Carl Donnelly.

But the fun doesn’t stop once the show’s over as The Glee’s resident DJ will keep the party atmosphere going well into the wee small hours.

Parties run from Thursday 30 November (Birmingham), and Friday 1 December (Cardiff & Nottingham) until to Saturday 23 December 2017.

Not to be left out, Oxford’s The Glee Club is also embracing the festive spirit.

Look out too for musical comedian Kate Lucas and TV and stand-up veteran Junior Simpson (16 Dec), while the Xmas weekend (22 Dec) boasts showman Charlie Baker and hotly tipped young comedian Tom Lucy.

Other acts visiting the club in December include Rhod Gilbert tour opener Andrew Bird, the forceful JoJo Smith, and fast-thinking Scot Stuart Mitchell.
