Improvisational comedy troupe The RH Experience are bringing some familiar faces to their next live show.
RH & Friends is a monthly event hosted by the group that takes place at The Miller pub in London. The next show, set to take place on 10 February, will be a “YouTube Special”, with members Conor Jatter, Tom Webster, Luke Spillane, and Dan Attfield joined on stage by guests from the YouTube community to perform their new show, Flamenco Sketches.
Comedians Mawaan Rizwan and Laura Bubble will be two of the performers, while the night will also feature live music from Daniel Dobbs and a magic show from Steven Bridges.

Speaking to TenEighty, Luke admits the group had wanted to do a YouTube-based show since they began hosting the night, stating: “We’ve always wanted to show off some of our talented YouTube friends and put on a whole night around them. YouTube is where we started as a group and we’re immensely grateful for the opportunities it has given us and the fantastic people we’ve met.”
When asked if he would like to see anyone else from the YouTube community take part in their show, Luke says there are “almost too many to name”, suggesting that anyone willing to improvise on stage with RH should get in touch.
Luke goes on to explain how RH & Friends is the troupe’s favourite night of the month, telling us that “the whole night has such a good energy and vibe around it that it just feels like we’re throwing a rather egotistical birthday party every four weeks”.
On the night’s progression from pure comedy to more of a variety feel, he expresses a desire to “show off more and more of our talented friends”, viewing RH & Friends as a platform for acts to try out anything new.
The show is 18+, free to enter, and set to take place this Friday 10 February at 8pm. Compared to previous shows, there is now an option to reserve a seat to avoid patrons queuing at the door.
