A new monthly experimental comedy night which functions as a playground for exciting and innovative performers, writers, and filmmakers. A mixture of live performance and short film, The Paddock is a showcase of original work and collaborations from some of the most ground-breaking and creative people in the country.
The Paddock is a collective of talented people working in and around comedy. Everyone who’s part of it was invited to join after being nominated by someone else in the chain. Charlie Perkins decided to start it like this because she wanted to be able to keep the group small (at the moment it’s comprised of 60 people). She also wanted the group to be made up of people who already know of, follow, admire and are inspired by the work of others within it, so there would be a good basis for collaboration from the off.
