Comedy Comes to Cargo

Written by

Stephen Grant

Saigon Comedy Nights is changing it up this month. Not only with two new touring comedians — quick-firing Chortle Award winner from the UK, Stephen Grant, and Aussie vet Steve Allison, a man who’s logged over a million km on the comedy circuit — but also in a new, more casual space, Q4’s Cargo Bar. This is good news for those of you out there who like to enjoy your comedy the way it should be enjoyed, alongside a million reasonably-priced beers. And what’s more, in his last appearance before transporting his deadpan veneer to the metropolis of Shanghai, will be Merseyside regular and reformed car thief, Chris Baker.

The Loud Minority

The Loud Minority

If you frequent certain pubs around football match times, you might be tricked into taking this festival’s name literally. But Q4’s upcoming Loud Minority Festival isn’t about regionalistic boasts — it’s about uniting traditions, drawing attention to some local children’s shelters while they’re at it.

Art in Unbordered Waters

Written by

Vol de Nuit

Vol de Nuit (Night Flight) is a novel of Antoine de St-Exupéry — who Tom Wolfe claimed as “a saint in short, true to his name, flying up here at the right hand of God.” The international artists participating in Vol de Nuit’s borderless, interdisciplinary three-week art festival aspire to such levels, or else are rooting about in the cellar of the human condition (one of the organisers is iLL — the institute of Lower Learning).
