‘Candlelit Dinner’

The dinner date. The gold standard of dating.

Fortunately tonight you have an ideal candidate lined up for a 3 course meal. But so do the rest of the audience. Will their arrogant showboating put you off your steak, or their shy demeanor reveal a deeply guarded secret? Do they treat the waiting staff with respect or do they talk with their mouth full?

You have a table booked for 8pm on the 10th of June at the Bristol Improv Theatre, let’s hope this date is the one!


After winning Bath Spa Uni’s ‘Battle of the Comics’, Gareth thought “maybe I can do this. Then after gigging around the South West he took the title of Komedia’s Comedy Launch Pad Champion 2019! He CAN do it!

Now hosting Birmingham’s only LGBTQ+ Comedy Night, Queer as Joke, Gareth will regail you with dating mishaps and tales of plant based desperation that are sure to make you giggle.
