We are delighted to reveal that our brilliant comedy sketch group Birds has been selected as a finalist at the 2018 Leicester Square Theatre Sketch Off contest.

Around 90 sketch acts from London and all across the UK entered the heats of the prestigious sketch comedy competition, which took place at the Museum of Comedy over several nights throughout February.

Birds, which is performed by Amy Spinks and Leila Nashef and written and directed by Will Noble and Joe Reaney, advanced from their heat to one of four semi-finals, also at the Museum of Comedy. Then, last night, they progressed again to reach the grand final, to be held at the Leicester Square Theatre on Sunday 25th March.

There will be 10 superb sketch acts competing in the iconic 400-seat auditorium, with a cash prize and showcase up for grabs, so why not pop along? Tickets are available for £15.50 from the Leicester Square Theatre website.

Find out more about the event on the Sketch Off Facebook page, then book your tickets through the LST box office. And you can keep up to date with all things Birds on our own Facebook page.

Following our storming (citation needed) debut shows at Diminishing Returns, Comedy Virgins and Party Piece in September, Birds is back. Are back? Is back.

We've got brand spanking new comedy sketches, and we'll be premiering them at the absolutely legendary London comedy venue Downstairs at the King's Head.

On Thursday 9th November, you can see a new five-minute Birds set at the venue's famous Try Out Night, launchpad of some of the UK's biggest comedy stars.

Doors open at 8pm and tickets - on the door - cost just £4. That's less than the price of a beer. Bloody London.

The Try Out Night has been a fixture on the UK circuit since 1986. There will 16 comedy acts on the bill - a mix of new acts and old hands, sketch and stand up - with each doing five minutes. All MCed by comedian Matt Green.

So come along. It'll be a laugh - promise. Oh, and it's usually a sell out, so arrive early to avoid disappointment.

P.S. Can't make it on 9th November? Don't worry. You can also catch Birds at Party Piece on 21st November.
