Stand-Up Pork and Pickle Pie Thanksgiving Spectacular, East London, November 25

Stand-up comics are giving thanks with a Pork & Pickle Pie Thanksgiving Stand-Up Spectacular at The Scolthead, a pub in East London on November 25, 2010.

What's on the program besides pie, Here it is:

"Join the hottest rising stars of comedy for an evening of thanksgiving themed fun in aid of the De Beauvoir Underground community centre. Musical Comedy Award Best New Act winner Jay Foreman joins Latitude Best New Act of the Year 2010 Eric Lampaert, Hackney Empire New Act of the year finalist Pat BurtscherRob Beckett at The Scolt Head on 25th November. and Amused Moose Laugh Off Winner.

Comedy-goers pay just £5 for a ticket which includes the best of 2010’s stand-up circuit, a couple of surprise guests. A special gourmet Thanksgiving Pie and sweet potato mash will be available at the night."

The event is produced by the Idea Generation team

In case you want to give the dish a try, I found a Recipe for Pork and Pickle Pie by Tallyrand (Hub UK).


The Yorkshire Dales Food Blog in The Pork Pie Challenge – who makes the best pork pie (2008) chose Kendalls of Pateley Bridge 'Pork & Pickle Pie' (pictured above).

Not sure what the perfect beer pairing could be.

Any suggestions?
