Comedian launches FREE comedy shows in Redditch

Redditch Editorial 1st Jan, 2024   0

A REDDITCH comedian will give the town a late Christmas present with the launch of his new free comedy shows in January.

AJ, 39, a lifelong resident of Redditch, has fronted the costs for multiple free comedy nights hosted by himself for the people of Redditch throughout early 2024.

The show titled AJ Unleashed – Young @ Heart will kick off with a performance at Oakenshaw Community Centre, Redditch on January 5 at 7pm. There are approximately 100 tickets available.

Aj told the Standard: “I noticed there wasn’t a lot of local comedy in Redditch and I’m hoping to bring a bit of feel factor to the town.

“Everyone love’s a freebie and as the show is a work in progress, it’s a chance for everyone to come and see.

“As a comedian, I am new to the solo side of stand up but have some material I would like to try with the audience.

“My niche is story telling and observational comedy.”

There will further shows at Winyates Community Centre (Friday January 26 – 7pm), Windmill Community Centre (Friday March 1 – 7pm) and Batchley Community Centre (Friday March 30 – 7pm) .

Aj hopes to host a total of 10 shows, as well as a special Valentines show, with dates and venues due to be announced later.

You can grab a free ‘tear off’ ticket for the first show from the fire exit door in the main hall of Oakenshaw Community Centre, the cafe in Abbey Stadium, or from the entrance notice boards at Redditch Library and Tesco.
