Two venues in Northampton are hosting all-day events with some of the biggest names in comedy as they try out new material.

The Comedy Crate is coming to The Deco Theatre and the Charles Bradlaugh Pub for “work in progress” shows.

Work In Progress and Preview shows gives established acts a chance to test new material and develop their longer form solo shows for TV appearances, tours and festivals.
