Phil Wang has joined the line up for the Union Chapel’s monthly comedy showcase (and he’s definitely on pair with the Eds)

It’s Ed Byrne’s turn to headline Live at the Chapel, the monthly comedy showcase at the Union Chapel.

Perhaps best known from his appearances on Mock the Week, Have I Got News for You and most recently Dara and Ed’s Road to Mandalay with Dara O’Briain, Byrne is a master in the art of observational comedy.

Joining Byrne in the line up is fellow Mock the Week regular Ed Gamble (host), half of comedy duo Peacock and Gamble who has gained increasing recognition over the past few years, Canadian comedian, Glenn Wool, who you might have seen on Russell Howard’s Good News, and Phil Wang and Phoebe Walsh, up and coming names on the stand up scene.

Live at the Chapel takes place July 1.

If you can’t make this one, the next, on July 29, has Mark Watson headlining alongside, Nick Helm, Lolly Adefope and John Robins as host.

Tickets are £20 and more information can be found at:
