Gilbeys partners with Punchline Comedy Club to kick off comedy nights

Gilbey’s Gin has partnered with Punchline Comedy Club to kick off a series of comedy nights. The weekly comedy nights kicked off at The Two Grapes Bar & Restaurant on 17th January and will see Punchline Comics treat guests to an evening of fun and laughter and set the mood as the year kicks off.

Consumers who attended the event had the opportunity to purchase specialized Gilbeys Gin cocktails paired with the food menu. They were also treated to Gilbey’s Gin bottles at special prizes, a gift of joy to take home after a full night of laughter. These promotions will run for every comedy night for the duration of the campaign.

The comedy nights and activations lined up by Gilbey’s and Punchline, includes a weekly Wednesday comedy show at Two Grapes dubbed ‘Winedown Wednesday.’ A weekly Thursday comedy show dubbed ‘One Mic Stand’ and a Friday activation at the Cavalli Restaurant and Bar. There will be a final ticketed comedy special dubbed ‘Yo Mama’ on February 10th at the Mama Rocks Restaurant, Karen. The comedy nights promise to deliver a month of fun filled laughter and offer consumers a refreshing and authentic experience with friends.

The talent is here, we have established and continue to grow a market but most importantly, there remains immeasurable potential with what we can do. This partnership with Gilbeys Gin will take the Punchline Platform further to achieving its goal in making Nairobi the stand-up capital of Africa.” Said Eric Lu Sava, Founder Punchline Comedy Club
