Ten new UK stand-up specials to be recorded for Amazon Prime

Part of the ongoing deal with Soho Theatre

The first batch of new comedy specials to be released under Soho Theatre’s deal with Amazon Prime Video has been revealed.

Chortle reported on Sunday that Desiree Burch’s breakthrough show Unf*ckable was to be recorded this week.

Now the names of all ten shows have been revealed via an audience ticketing site.

They are:

  •  Jordan Brookes: I've Got Nothing 2.0, an updated version of the show that won the 2019 Edinburgh Comedy Award
  •  Jessica Fostekew: Hench, Version 2.0 (pictured)
  •  Stand Up With Janine Harouni  (Please Remain Seated)
  •  Kai Samra: Underclass.
  •  Sindhu Vee: Sandhog
  •  Sarah Keyworth: Dark Horse 
  •  Catherine Bohart: Immaculate,
  •  Nina Conti: In Your Face
  •  Desiree Burch:Unf*ckable 
  •  Kieran Hodgson: Maestro

They will be recorded at the Soho Theatre between July 5 and 10 and tickets are available via Standing Room Only.

The London venue’s deal with Amazon was announced last November, with the release of ten shows already recorded there.

At the time, Soho Theatre – which normally welcomes 250,000 audience members through its doors every year – said the arrangement was ‘part of our commitment to connect the work of the brilliant performers on our Soho stages to much wider audiences’

Another batch of ten shows are set to be recorded and released later.
