Stand Up For Single Parents One Year Anniversary Show!

Join us this October to celebrate single parents with some smashing stand-up comedy – IN PERSON!

To celebrate one whole year of Stand Up For Single Parents, we are delighted to announce that the fabulous Thea will be putting on the comedy night’s FIRST in-person gig! It’ll take place in Camden (Gingerbread’s backyard) – and guests are welcome both in-person and virtually, with the show being broadcast live over Zoom.

Thea Jaffe volunteers as a Gingerbread peer support group coordinator, is single mother to her young son, works a busy job – and, over lockdown, has really started to shine in her stand-up career! She organises these fantastic great evenings as a bit of a (not-necessarily-family-friendly…) laugh for all and sundry, with a selection of different comedians on throughout the evening.

When: Sunday 10th October, 8 – 9:30pm
