Stand Up Tragedy is a night where people stand up and tell tragedy. We make you sad; we make you think; we make you smile. Expect music, comedy, fiction, spoken word, true stories and more, all playing up to the tragic form but not always taking it seriously. The night ends, not with a whimper, not with a bang, but with a cathartic sing-a-long.

Acts booked so far include Ben Target, Lou Sanders, The Sound of the Ladies, Andy Bodle, Emily Cleaver, Jo Murphy from Sergeant BuzFuz and Kit Lovelace.

The night is run by Dave Pickering, host of Spark London’s Hackney Attic Open Mic and award nominated /Radio 5 Live-featured podcast Getting Better Acquainted
