*Gits and Shiggles *celebrates its 10th birthday in June!
That's right, it's been 10 years since we did our first show at The Half Moon, with Red Dwarf's Norman Lovett as our first headliner. Since then, it's been a pleasure and a privilege to entertain the people of Putney and see the night grow to the point where we've received Critic's Choice from Time Out, Chortle, Evening Standard and Metro.
We've also welcomed some of the finest acts in the UK and beyond to the Half Moon stage, including Stewart Lee, Harry Hill, Katherine Ryan, Jack Dee, Reginald D. Hunter, Sara Pascoe, Aisling Bea, Nish Kumar, Jack Whitehall, Josh Widdicombe and James Acaster.
In the past 12 months we've only been able to bring you shows sporadically, so we are excited that the newest easing of restrictions coincides with the anniversary, and we are bringing you not one, not two, but THREE fantastic shows to celebrate - as always featuring some of the country's best comics.
Thanks to all that have come to see shows in the past 10 years and have helped make the night what it is! Here's to another 10 years!
