Locally Sourced Presents: The Deluxe Comedy Bunker

Elon’s got one… Bezos too… so we thought we should start prepping for the end of the world — welcome to the DELUXE COMEDY BUNKER!


Join Charlotte Evans and Will Adamsdale (hosts of Exeter’s cult comedy night Locally Sourced) in Exeter’s only DELUXE COMEDY BUNKER. We’re bringing some of our favourite acts together for a monthly night of revelry in our secret location under The Mermaid bar.Grab a cocktail, unwind and sample a smorgasbord of blues-busting , locally sourced comics – plus the odd one we‘ve vacuum packed and shipped from Bristol – for a night of laughs and silliness at the end of the world! Of course, the world might still be turning at the end of the night, but you may never want to leave…

Every second Thursday of the month in the refuge ( Downstairs at The Mermaid, Gandy Street)
