What The Frock! Comedy Nights at The Square
Friday 22nd March. 8pm-10pm
From January 2013, What The Frock! will be taking up a monthly residency every fourth Friday night, filling the stage of the Square's Lower Deck Bar with the very best female comedians from around the country for your laughing pleasure right here in the heart of Bristol!
Previous What The Frock! nights have brought award-winning comedians including Tiffany Stevenson, Danielle Ward, Kate Smurthwaite and Rosie Wilby to Bristol.

In March you can expect to hear the comical delights from the following talented women comedians:
Bristol-born Jayde Adams took a meandering route into comedy, taking in disco dancing, fish mongering and window selling along the way. "I tried acting, went to stage school, I have dabbled in musical theatre, physical theatre, I was a door woman, contemporary dancer, palm reader, restaurant manager, opera singer, cocktail waitress," she says.
For Jayde, stand-up comedy's main appeal is: "I think I'm alright at it, and I enjoy it," but like all the other jobs she's done, she says "if I spend more time not enjoying it then I'll try something else out." Jayde will the compere at each What The Frock! event at The Square.
Becky Walsh is the stand-up intuitive. She performers live intuitive readings executed in unusual ways, blended effortlessly with observational comedy and storytelling.
She says: "What I get excited about is showing people the tools they already own to unlock themselves. My humour, care and enthusiasm for your future means you come away feeling ready and uplifted. If you don't, you're going to get some homework!"
Quirky, natural Laura Lexx is one of the most effortless comedians making a splash in the comedy scene today. She indulges her audience with childish glee and attention. Described as "upbeat and delightful" (Chortle), her shows are never the same twice. A finalist at both the Paramount and Chortle student comedy finals, Laura's "a true pro" and guaranteed to bring a smile to your face.
"One of the most delightful performers you're ever likely to see." GQ
Sam Von Rombeg
Bristolian Sam Von Rombeg is filling our five-minute open mic spot on March 22, so we'll be sure to give her a hearty What The Frock! welcome to The Square Club.
Sam describes herself as: "Northern, ginger and hopelessly optimistic. I'm a single mum and home-educator, and I'm often to be found roaming the streets of Totterdown, making ill advised eye contact with unusual people and getting myself into strange situations. As a stand-up comic, I talk frankly about my life and how it is always possible to find some comedy in the tragic. I have been described as 'The cheerful face of bitterness!'."
