HAVEN Coffee is excited to present the 8th instalment of their signature comedy gig Laff-Uccino during Refugee Week 2024!

HAVEN Coffee is a social enterprise with a mission of serving ethically sourced, fair-trade, organic cup of speciality coffee with a social mission of breaking false narratives around refugees and migrants through arts and culture. They do it by promoting artists from refugee background and their artwork in an effort to bring refugee communities and UK society together. 

Laff-Uccino is part of this social mission and started in December 2019 and this will be the 8th instalment of it. The line-up includes some very talented and Funny comedians from Refugee & Migrant Backgrounds performing for their very 1st, 2nd, or 3rd gig, refugees from our stand-up workshop participants, and some old horses of the stage, including Rosie Jones, Rhys James, Kiri Pritchard-McLean on MC, and a very special Guest Headliner, NISH KUMAR!

And if you think that is enough then we have one last thing for you. There will be a Free Raffle on the night with a chance to win some very good prizes! 

So hurry up and get your ticket now!

"It’s such an incredible project; such an interesting and different way of approaching how to try and make refugees feel welcome in their new home country – and make it feel like home as well – and the gigs are great!

The comedians are so good... It’s one of the things in my life that I feel lucky to have done because it's just a genuinely, unambiguously positive thing that everyone in Laff-Uccino and No Direction Home has managed to achieve with this project." - Nish Kumar

“I feel very lucky to be able to share with these people that are going through the asylum system. To be able to reclaim the shared humanity that we all have in telling jokes is very special.

Laughter is a unifying thing that makes no sense but is so powerful as a tool; when comedy is used to centre love and compassion in a community.

I often see people talk about losing hope but laughter is a reuniting force that reminds us of the overflowing energy we can have when we commune, come together, and tell jokes." - Sam Williams
