About this event

Racquet Studios plays host to Subsonic Events and the legendary Oi Oi Comedy Club for a special one-off event.

The Comedy Clash lands with a stunning lineup in Eastbourne's newly developed Racquet Studios. Formerly known as the Gold Room at the famous Winter Gardens, many will have visited the long-running comedy seasons in the venue.

Cutting edge virtual film production space from Monday to Friday, Racquet Studios is opening its doors, partnering with some of the region's best promoters, for a handful of public events over a handful of weekends throughout the year, kicking off with the Comedy Clash; an opportunity to be in the company of comedy legends and burgeoning talent in a single evening.

With a fully licenced bar from 7:30 pm and discounts for tables of 10, all proceeds from the evening will be donated to members of Eastbourne's 1st Meads Scout Group, who are fundraising for a once-in-a-lifetime trip to South Korea in 2023.

BOB MILLS

COMEDY CLASH image

Bob Mills burst onto the London Comedy scene in 1985, turning the faltering 'alternative comedy' establishment on its head with his unique, challenging brand of laddish irreverent stand-up.

Over the next ten years, he established himself as one of the most successful live acts in the country, as well as putting together a string of acclaimed TV and radio credits along the way.

His performances as host of ITV’s flagship daytime game show ‘Win Lose Or Draw’, treading the fine line between pensioners favourite, and students' cult hero and his weird and wonderful late night ‘In Bed With MeDinner’ is still remembered fondly wherever intelligent TV fans meet.
