The very first issue of The Independent Comedy Appreciation Society. Limited number of copies available!
This issue includes thoughts and musings from:
Topics include Mach fest, kindness in comedy, female comic anxiety, George Orwell, starting standup in New York, and we've got poems, recommendations, games and even a guest illustration from Jenny Grene (our very own Jenby)!
It's 29 pages long, printed on recycled paper and comes with a free badge (two designs - so if you want both buy two copies and give another to a mate to spread the indie comedy love?).
The Independent Comedy Appreciation Society is a fully illustrated magazine curated and illustrated by Lise Richardson about supporting independent live comedy, with contributions from acts, venues, and comedy enthusiasts.
If you’re not sure what independent comedy is, here’s how I’d describe it; interesting, original and thoughtful comedy where the end goal is not fame or money. Those things are nice, but the point is to create something that is unique to the performer rather than emulating the material or style of big telly comedians. This magazine exists not only to provide a platform for those kind of acts to have their work published, but also as a show of love and encouragement for all of the independent comedy community.
