The Shaggers Valentine's Special 2017 - Singapore
We're BACK! After a sold out run in 2016, we're bringing the love back on the 11th of February 2017 for THE SHAGGERS VALENTINE'S SPECIAL!
Inspired by many a conversation based around the more mischievous side of festival and comedy circuit fun, it was decided that a show about said situations should be held on Valentine's Day, all across the globe.
Watch as stand-up comedians delve into love, relationships and
of course, SHAGGING. Doesn't matter if you're attached or single, the
show will be sure to tickle your funny bones (and perhaps some other
parts), as they regale tales of bad hookups & awkward boners.
