A brand new stand-up comedy club is about to crash-land in the heart of Valletta promising to bring with it boldness, boisterousness and all round berserk bedlam – The Chicken Coop!
Inspired by the plethora of clubs on the London circuit and supported by – Jameson Irish Whiskey The Chicken Coop will be a monthly event held at Djangos in Republic Street Valletta and organised by Revolt.
Local comedian and Chicken Coop organiser Steve Hili explains:
‘Local Stand-up comedy has really only been in existence for a year and a half, but already a number of comedians have started to develop their own particular style and a bit of a following. Many local comedians are fearless, joking about everything and anything. We love ruffling feathers – that is one of the reasons we are calling this club The Chicken Coop – and the energy surrounding the scene is incredible. And now, thanks to some help from our mates at Farsons Beverage Imports with Jameson Irish Whiskey and Djangos in Valletta we want to take this to another level.’
Steve himself has performed on the London circuit quite successfully and hopes that The Chicken Coop can help local comedians take the same step.
And that is not all.
Every month a complete newbie – a comedy virgin can win a chance to do a set.
‘We want the stand-up community in Malta to grow and flourish. We want more and more people to feel the rush of getting up in front of an audience and making them laugh. Once you get bitten by the stand-up bug you are never the same again. It is unbelievable.’
