Awsum comedy for all the family

Jonny Awsum

Famed Brum comedy club The Glee hosts big name child-friendly show

Birmingham’s famed Glee Club is opening its doors for a special family show on Sunday 18 February 2018, complete with sweet treat mocktails.

The family-friendly afternoon performance, suitable for ages 7+, promises three leading acts including Britain’s Got Talent sensation Jonny Awsum and CBBC’s Howard Read.

Combining animation, stand-up and song, Howard Read is one of the UK’s leading family entertainers. His countless TV credits include CBBC, Sesame Street, Disney, Cartoon Network and more, with such shows as Danger Mouse, Horrible Histories and (of course) Little Howard’s Big Question.

Jonny Awsum hit the headlines after earning a standing ovation and reaching the semi-finals of ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent 2017, roping in presenters Ant and Dec during his appearances. An acclaimed feel-good musical comedian, he’s played at major music festivals and sold out London theatres with his “show for kids of all ages, from 5 to 105!”

Completing the line-up is comedian, podcaster and writer Laura Lexx, who’s toured with the likes of Russell Kane and Jason Manford. A rising star, she won Best MC in the 2017 Comic’s Comic Awards and was nominated as Best Compere in the 2016 and 2017 Chortle Comedy Awards.

Food is also available with a Sunday lunch themed bap (for adults, including a veggie option) and popcorn chicken with cheesy beans and salsa dip, or grilled mac’ cheese veggie hot dog for the younger audience members.

Meanwhile, the bar will be serving a selection of child-friendly Sweet Treat Mocktails, including Socks On The Beach (cranberry and orange juice with raspberry and apricot puree over crushed ice), and Dirty Smartie-ni (chocolate milkshake and crushed ice laced with coloured syrups and topped with whipped cream and Smarties).
