Rhymes Against Humanity comes to Metronome as part of Nottingham Comedy Festival

Rhymes Against Humanity live at Metronome

As part of the Nottingham Comedy Festival, Rhymes Against Humanity will present an improvised musical at the Metronome on Sunday 3 November!

The Nottingham Comedy Festival is returning to the city for the 11th year in a row. The diverse range of comedy being showcased at the event will include acts such as Rob Beckett, Russel Kane, Maisie Adam and more. The festival is organised by Helen Stead who also runs regular comedy nights throughout the year through her company NCF Comedy.

The event has grown over the years and now includes many different strands of comedy, including stand up, improvisation and sketch. With many different venues in Nottingham getting involved, including theatres, bars, cafes and restaurants, the aim is to bring together brand new comedians and the well-established, giving everyone an opportunity to enjoy comedy, whether performing or watching.

As part of the annual festival, Rhymes Against Humanity will present an improvised musical at the Metronome on Sunday 3rd November. This follows sell-out shows at Leicester Comedy Festival and last year’s Nottingham Comedy Festival. The group also previously performed at Nottingham Playhouse earlier this year. The concept is simple; an audience member will suggest a title and, from that, a brand-new musical theatre piece will be created on the spot. No scripts, no pre-planning, just a completely improvised musical.

The Metronome has become Nottingham’s home for comedy, with Just The Tonic comedy club setting up residency for Saturday night gigs. The first will be on Saturday 5th October, and will include Tom Binns, Julian Deane and Dave Longley on the line-up.
