Two shows in one month? Oh we’re spoiling you!

Our aim is to provide a comedy space that is safe for all, and as such we have a strict content policy on: No Racism, Sexism, Homophobia, Transphobia, Classism, Ablism, etc. And we make every effort to content warn any potentially triggering material that may take place.

Afraid of audience interaction? At Blizzard there is no unsolicited or forced audience participation – if you agree to take part in audience participation, you may get a sticker at the door, otherwise, you can rest assured knowing that no one is going to pressure you into getting directly involved.

Our headliner is the incredible RAUL KOHLI

Raul Kohli has fast become one of the most captivating acts on the circuit. As one of the few select Asians to have grown up in the far north of England (Newcastle Upon Tyne, he’s been blessed with a Worldview that upends ethnicity, culture and class. Combining ‘Superb political comedy’ (The Scotsman) with surreal storytelling; in a few short years, Raul Kohli has risen to the top of the Comedy World. All of his solo shows have gained critical acclaim. His Edinburgh Fringe debut show Newcastle Brown Male was one of BBC Radio 4, The Huffington Post & the Skinny’stop picks of the Fringe 2016, and his most recent: All My Heroes Are Dead, in Jail or Touched Up Your Nan was nominated for Best Show at the Leicester Comedy Festival2019. As well as several radio & TV appearances (Incl: BBC Radio 4, BBC Comedy Underground, RTV Netherlands & more), Raul has appeared at the biggest comedy clubs around the World (incl Laugh Canvas India, ComedyHuis Holland, & the Stand Edinburgh). Raul is also an award winning comedian, winning the NATYS in 2017, formerly the Hackney New Empire of the Year Award.
