Al Murray - Landlord of Hope and Glory (work in progress)

SOLD OUT

Citizens of Hope and Glory! Our new tomorrow beckons. A new tomorrow that smells reassuringly of yesterday, but with wifi.

One last heave and we will be there. And when the going gets tough the tough get going. Although the going won’t get tough and anyone who tells you it is going to be tough is lying.

Come join me to marvel at the majesty of our green and pleasant land. A land globally renowned for our culture, history and places, like the world-famous Salisbury Cathedral.

Join me to step backwards into the future.

Andrew Maxwell - Showtime

A memorable cocktail of personal stories, astute political observations and the odd surprise foray into character cameos.

He's been seen on BBC1’s Live at the Apollo and Have I Got News for You, ITV2’s Celebrity Juice and BBC2’s Mock the Week. To a whole new generation he is the devilish voice of MTV's Ex On The Beach.

Glenn Wool: Wool's Gold II (The Iron Pirate)

The award winning comedian is now comfortably in his forties and a new dad.

WHY? ‘Lethally funny’ Metro

‘Absolutely hilarious’ Independent

‘Effortlessly funny… You have to go and see Glenn Wool’ Guardian

Simon Brodkin: Let Me Introduce Myself

You may know him as ‘comedy legend’ Lee Nelson or as the ‘unfunny pillock’ who gave Theresa May a P45, but you won’t know him as ‘tiny Jew’ Simon Brodkin.

After three hugely successful series of Lee Nelson on the BBC, multiple TV appearances (Live at the Apollo, Sunday Night at The Palladium, Channel 4’s Comedy Gala) and several world-famous stunts on the likes of Donald Trump, Kanye West and Sepp Blatter, Simon unveils his funniest persona yet; himself.

In this highly anticipated ‘debut’ show, the award winning, critically acclaimed comedian takes us from his childhood growing up on the mean streets of Hampstead Village, to his adulthood as a failed doctor, inept parent and fairly rubbish Jew.

WHY? ‘Prodigious talent’ The Times

‘Satire so sharp you could slash a tyre with it’ Daily Telegraph

A brand new stand-up show following a stonking set on Live at the Apollo and a sell-out Fringe, one of the UK's top stand-ups Chris McCausland is on tour. Sunday Times Best of the Edinburgh Fringe 2018.

Gyles Brandreth - Break a Leg!

They say all political careers end in tears.

Without hesitation or repetition (and just a touch of deviation), the BBC Radio 4 Just a Minute regular delivers dazzling wit, wisdom, high drama, low comedy and hilarious name-dropping.

WHY? ‘A master raconteur’ ★★★★★ The Telegraph

‘Total joy’ ★★★★★ Scotsman

Suitable for ages 11+ years.
