Do This

Go to a Belly Laughs food and comedy night

24th - 31st January
Various venues across Birmingham

Having your spirits lifted, eating good food AND supporting one of your favourite local independent venues? It's almost too good to be true! 

Comedians are not revealed until the night; it could be a household name or a local up and coming act.

There are a few shows left to choose from this month; we've got our eye on The Distillery on the 31st! 👀

I'm up for a laugh!

Killa Kela interviews graffiti artist Zooki in Digebth, Birmingham

Watch this interview with Birmingham graffiti legend Zooki

One of Birmingham's O.G. graffiti writers tells his and the city’s story from the ‘80s through to the modern day in this rare interview with beatboxing royalty Killa Kela. 

Learning about Zooki and the generation that paved the way for today's artists was brilliant. This interview sent me on a YouTube spiral, delving into the archives of Brum's history of street art and its surrounding culture.
