A unique comedy event that’s part-storytelling, part-confessional and wholly entertaining!

Come onstage and celebrate your almost and nearly moments under the expert guidance of your affable host, Alexis Strum. She’s the girl who wrote the book on failure (literally) with her laugh-out-loud memoir, 'The Time I Almost...', about her abortive attempts to become a popstar and her meteoric rise to anonymity. Featuring celebrity guests and a chance to win an ‘Almost Oscar’ if you’re voted The Audience’s Favourite, all profits from ticket sales for this event will go to Women’s Aid.

    If I’m honest I didn’t know exactly what to expect from the night BUT, what a night it turned out to be! Witty, relatable, truly ‘sliding doors’ experiences, where a twist of fate (or tequila!) had redirected both Alexis, & those who had come along to share their story, on a different life trajectory. Highly recommended!

    Great night out. Lots of laughs and a supportive audience listening to some fascinating stories. Alexis compèred it beautifully even shared some of her own almost moments.
