Comedy at the Flo is hosted by Alfie and Adam Flood every Wednesday at The Florence pub in Herne Hill. It features a mix of new and pro acts trying jokes out in a fun and laid-back way. You can book tickets here.

 

 

Alfie is headed to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August 2022 with Luke Chilton to perform a split-bill showcase of their best jokes. Strap in as these sexy young things deliver their irreverent angles on intrusive thoughts, death, football men, getting sectioned, love and distracting oneself from viral destruction. You can buy tickets here.
