TIME – Doors open at 7pm, show starts at 8pm

As the winner of the first-ever Off The Rails Comedy Competition, Tatenda Mbudzi, put it:

“Stand Up comedy is tricky, but at least you have time to prepare. Improv is hard, but at least you perform with a team, so you can mask your failure with group camaraderie, and nervous smiles, and sometimes the audience won’t notice (case in point I was at an improv show where a guy had a stroke on stage and the audience didn’t notice). Combine all three, and it’s basically torture.”
