Local event venue, Warehouse Four, won high praise recently at the Time Out Dubai Music & Nightlife Awards 2019.
Nominated in the ‘Best Comedy Night‘ category for their recent ‘Fringe@Four presents Ian Smith – Craft’, the venue was up against some heavyweight comedy names including Dave Chappelle (Dubai World Trade Centre), Jason Byrne (McGettiganâ€™s JLT) as well as several Laughter Factory gigs.
Best Comedy Gig
Highly commended: Ian Smith
An intimate performance at Warehouse Four in Al Quoz saw this hilarious award-winning UK comic bring his Edingburgh Fringe show to chat about, weirdly, origami. Genuinely brilliant comedy in a relaxed, chilled-out setting that was different, but outstandingly professional.
“To get nominated for what was essentially our first comedy gig, was a huge surprise. And whilst not winning outright, to come away with a ‘Highly Recommended’ was a fantastic achievement. Huge thanks to Ian Smith for an amazingly funny show. Let’s see if we can go one better in the future!” said Ian Carless, Partner at Warehouse Four.
The comedy event was part of the venue’s Fringe@Four series, which sees them bringing over some of the best comedy and theatre shows from the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. More shows have been scheduled throughout the year.
