It’s back and it’s hungry! The University of Southampton Comedy Society presents The Comedy Fridge, a three day comedy festival showcasing some hysterical acts from near and far. Over the festival we’ll be bringing in laughter from professional acts and other university troupes as well as yours truly, Southampton Comedy Society. This is also your first chance to see the spectacular shows we will be taking to Edinburgh Fringe Festival!

Here’s the rundown:


4th May: Stand-up and Short Shows ༼( ͡⊙ ਊ ͡⊙)༽
