Christie, Conti And Hagen Will Make You Laugh In A Church

Bridget Christie, Nina Conti and Sofie Hagen are among comedians who'll be trying to give you the giggles in a church.

Live at the Chapel — the Union Chapel in Highbury to be precise — has just announced its spring/summer line-up, and it's a good 'un. We laughed our heads off when we spoke to Christie and Conti recently, while Hagen's show about her teenage obsession with Westlife is one of the funniest things we saw last year.

London's not thin on the ground when it comes to comedy but the 900-capacity house of god has something special. The awe-inspiring setting seems to egg on comedians to put on an extra-special performance — even in they do occasionally balk at the idea of swearing in front of 'the man upstairs'.

The first show of the new Live at the Chapel season features Milton Jones, Andrew Maxwell, and Pappy's — with more to be announced soon.

Elsewhere, Bridget Christie shares a bill with Nish Kumar, Tony Law and Josie Long (on 14 May) and Hagen and Conti are joined by bonkers Aussie Sam Simmons, and apologetic Oxbridge boy Ivo Graham (4 June).

A full line-up of show is available on the Union Chapel's website. Tickets for each show cost £20.
