Costa del Tottenham

By | Category: Travel destinations

Travel and tourism has been badly it by the pandemic. I don’t know how many times I have written that statement over the last few months but it is so true.

The Costa del Tottenham

Favourite holiday destinations have effectively been out-of-bounds and even at home live entertainment such as the Edinburgh Fringe and all the comedy festivals have been removed from our right to laugh at the idiocy of life. And how idiotic this year has been! Thank goodness for the cartoonists in the newspapers to give us some humour to enjoy if not to grimace about.

At last we are able to come out of our shells a little with a few Prom concerts and some live theatre starting but in a different way from the past. Social distancing, mask wearing and avoiding crowds has all been part of life and many of us have wondered whether live gigs could be the same again.

It is with pleasure then that I tell you about one comedy event helping us to return to something like normality even if it is called Costa del Tottenham rather than Costa del Arsenal!

Starting this Saturday, (20th of September) the Laugh out London club which rejoices in the fact that Time Out calls it only the third best comedy club in London will re-open as a new socially distanced venue.

You may not consider Tottenham to be typical of the more familiar Costas in Spain but the club claims that it will host the best “paradise featuring palm trees, multicolour pergolas, private booths, street food, pint-sized cocktails.”

What more can you ask for  after that?

Some decent comics and the first Saturday has Sara Pascoe and Darren Harriot with Sarah Keyworth acting as the MC for the evening.

On the following Saturday it is everyone favourite angry-at-all-and-sundry comic, Mark Watson plus Catherine Bohart doing the MC honours.

There will be two shows a night at 6pm and 8.30 with the cost of a ticket being £5

Yes this story is more London-centric than I would normally write about but let’s hope that this is the start of live gigs coming to all parts of our countries in a way that takes back life  – as safely as possible – to a little way like normal.
