A Press of Suspects: Stand Up for New Parents

Local Plymouth promoters A Press of Suspects are bringing new Mum’s and Dad’s some much-needed comic relief! 🎤

The unique event will take place at 10:30 am on Saturday 22nd July at Leadworks and will feature professional comics performing their normal club sets for new parents who can’t get out at night!

Becoming a parent is a wonderful journey with many highs and lows. It can be an overwhelming and, at times, isolating experience. Comedy can be used to help build a sense of connection and also relieve symptoms of poor mental health. This show aims to help parents reconnect with their adult selves, an experience that is for them as opposed to their children.

Babies, children 2 and under, breastfeeding and general chaos are all welcome but please bear in mind there will be occasional swearing and adult themes.

Saturday 22nd July 10:30 am

Tickets here

Limited tickets (60) which include 1 adult and 1 child

Pay what you can afford (min £3) NO ONE TURNED AWAY FOR LACK OF FUNDS.
