The only place to see top Black comedians and cabaret acts from around the globe (who are still able to get in the country or afford travel). With previous headliners such as Desiree Burch (Live at the Apollo) Langston Kerman (Amazon Prime's The Boys) Daliso Chaponda (Britain's Got Talent), there's a new line-up every day. Four top Black international comedy acts, Black bingo, raffles and diversity, giving a token straight white male comic a chance that they rarely get. All audience members will receive a one-day not-a-racist pass. #blackcomedymatters
