Diminishing Returns is a free sketch comedy open mic night on the second Monday of the month at The Ship pub in Borough hosted by inter-generational double act Sheldon and Winstanley (Kym Winstanley and Mike Sheldon). The third member of the team is Scaley Cropper the iguana who in the interests of equality and diversity is now responsible for admin which includes taking bookings.
The night is a friendly place for both new and established sketch acts to try out material and mingle. Although we prioritise sketch we make space for some solo acts, either character or stand-up. We also have a writer’s section after the break. This is an opportunity for anyone who has material but is not part of a sketch act to cast from the room and see a script in hand performance of their work.
The show runs from 8pm – 10pm on the following dates in 2018:
|8th January||14th May||10th September|
|12th February||11th June||8th October|
|12th March||9th July||12th November|
|9th April||No August gig||No December gig|
Everyone who takes part in the evening gets a free video of their contribution.
