Ahir Shah: Control

In an age of global socio-political turmoil, Shah presents a show about freedom, fascism, history, hope, resistance and milk.

Ahir's last show enjoyed packed runs at the Edinburgh Fringe, the Soho Theatre, and a national tour. In it, he theorised that we were being tugged in contradictory directions by a potential brighter future and resurgent worst of the past. He's currently trying to work out how to build that future in a time when the past appears to be winning. He's got loads of jokes about it.

Griff Rhys Jones - Where Was I?

The star of Not the Nine o'clock News, Smith & Jones and Three Men In A Boat.

Griff as he airs stories, anecdotes, reminiscences and outright lies – from forty years of travelling – down rivers and up mountains, into Africa, out of India, and across the arid wastes of the BBC canteen. It's a career, if you mean bouncing chaotically downhill without a map.

WHY? ‘Great comedy’ ★★★★ The Telegraph

Mark Watson - MW

After more than 100 dates on the road in 2016 with his best-reviewed show to date, 'I'm Not Here', and a similarly marathon effort with the previous tour, Mark Watson is amazed to find there are STILL some areas of the country he's not visited much, and some towns that have been neglected altogether.

It's hard to be everywhere at once, so he's narrowed it down to a sensible plan: for the next tour, Watson will only visit places beginning with M or W, his initials - as they've already shown a commitment by having those names in the first place. A few of these will be favourite old haunts like Winchester or Manchester, but quite a few of them are the result of Googling and quite a number are so remote that we won't know they definitely exist until we get there. Also, some aren't actually towns so much as trains (from Marylebone to Wycombe), or ferries (across the Mersey), or a helicopter museum (in the double-point-scoring Middle Wallop).

The material will be a mixture of the classic and the never-before-seen. And in some cases a fair bit of it will be about being on a train.

The Thing That Came From Over There!

A rip-roaring comedy adventure, inspired by horror movies of the 1950s.

It’s 1912 and a meteor has crashed near the base camp of hapless explorer Captain Reginald Cranston Scot-t-t. What ancient evil lurks inside the crater? What is the dark secret of the slimy fungus and the parasitic space worms? With visual gags, verbal wit, giant puppetry and even a little bit of live music.

Iain Stirling - U OK Hun? X

Iain Stirling is back after a summer narrating ITV2's smash hit Love Island and now you can see his actual face on his brand new tour!

After selling out his entire Edinburgh Fringe run out in advance and adding shows due to extra public demand, the BAFTA winning comedian now hits the road to perform his acclaimed, hot ticket show around the UK.

Join the 'star of comedy' (The i) as he explores dinner party etiquette and the pressures on a generation brought up in a world of instant gratification. How has modern living affected our ability to find long term happiness? Can social media ever reflect real life? And why is the floor lava?

As well as hosting ITV2’s newest hit comedy gameshow CelebAbility, Iain’s intuitive razor-sharp humour has previously been seen on E4's Virtually Famous, Comedy Central's Drunk History and Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central, BBC Three's Russell Howard's Good News and Sweat the Small Stuff and ITV2's Fake Reaction and Safe Word.

To Helen Back

Helen Seymour admits you into a surreal hospital to create a funny, unique and powerful theatrical experience. It blurs the boundaries between spoken word, comedy and performance art.

So come on, be on the look-out while Helen sneaks around wards, X-ray rooms and cupboards to discover the bizarre, the bemusing and the ba… ah, well that would be telling.

WHY? A witty, thought provoking analysis of sickness, health and what it really means to recover
