Come to The Time I Almost LIVE and online on Wednesday 2nd September! 100% of all profits go to women’s domestic abuse charities.

A fun and quirky comedy/storytelling event with a twist!

Alexis Strum is your hostess (with the mostess), as she and a smorgasbord of TV’s funniest comedians and storytellers come onstage to celebrate their best ‘Sliding Doors’ moments with you. In case you’ve never heard of her, Alexis is the girl who wrote the book on failure (literally) with her laugh-out-loud blog and memoir, ‘The Time I Almost…’, charting her abortive attempts to become a popstar, supermodel, movie star and international spy!

So come along, sit back and enjoy being entertained- we promise you plenty of Schadenfreude, a lot of laughter and maybe a little bit of ‘closure’ too! Part-storytelling, part-confessional and wholly entertaining, ‘The Time I Almost’ is a night not to be missed! Here’s a review from Time Out:


And here are some photos of the night taken by the amazing Elyse Marks Photography and Paul Cornwell, amongst others.

Inspired by my debut memoir, the very first ‘The Time I Almost…’ took place at The Book Club on Wednesday 24th October 2018. Since then, there have been several shows and I always donate a percentage of profits from the ticket sales to the highly deserving Women’s Aid charity. We’ve gone from strength to strength and after 6 shows, I am still learning! The best thing is getting feedback from you guys and I was delighted to see this on the Design My Night site:

And Design My Night have actually named us one of the ‘Best Comedy Nights in London’ which definitely warms the ole cockles! Next up is an Anti-Valentine’s Day special on Feb 18th at The Book Club and then a few more dates before I take the night on the road for the summer! So exciting! So why don’t you come along to a show and see what all the fuss is about?

Thanks so much,

I have a lot of experience of running events/comedy nights, from live music events for Young Jewish Care to Big Belly Laugh, a comedy fundraiser for Waltham Forest Samaritans at The Hackney Attic with the likes of TV’s Angela Barnes and James Acaster on the bill.
