Alto Comedy promises to always showcase a female identifying Headline Act and MC within a mixed line-up, as a way of addressing gender discrepancies in traditional, comedy circuits. Local, regional acts are also promised a look in at the night, which celebrates diversity and equality in comedy.

Headlining at the upcoming event on 29th June is Harriet Kemsley. You might recognise her from her appearances on Out of 10 Cats, Comedy Central’s Roast Battle, and The Radio1 Comedy Lounge, or her recent tour support slots for the likes of Katherine Ryan, Stephen Merchant and Isy Suttie. Also on the bill are Kemah Bob, a London-based Texan who addresses Black cultural identity, mental health, and sexuality in her work, Maria Shehata, sardonic winner of Best Comedian at the Hollywood Festival of New Cinema, and BBC New Comedy Award finalist Mamoun Elagab. As ever, guests can also expect live DJs and scratch sets from new up and coming comics.
