Alun Cochrane

Grumpy-joyful, silly-serious stand up.

Jokes, ideas and (possibly) movement will all be deployed for your amusement during this show. As seen on blah blah and blah, and heard on various funny radio shows.

WHY? ‘A master storyteller, holding the audience before dropping an exploding but simple punchline’ Metro

Stephen K Amos - Bread and Circuses

Brexit. Trump. No more Mary Berry on the Great British Bake Off. Things are looking bleak, so wouldn’t it be better to just forget all about it?

Comic maestro Stephen K Amos might not be able to provide bread to the hungry masses, but no one else is going to put on a better circus. Leave your problems behind for the evening in the company of the ‘effusively charming’ Amos and who knows? Maybe the world will seem just a little bit brighter.

After all, when Ancient Rome needed to distract itself from politics, a few solutions were suggested, but none hit the spot quite like the simple idea of giving the people cheap food and plentiful entertainment – ‘panem et circenses’ or ‘bread and circuses’. Our circuses might no longer involve gladiator fights to the death, but the same principle applies. Modern politics is a confusing mess, so no one can blame you for giving it a miss in favour of a night of laughs.

WHY? ‘Deliciously deft… we roared at ad-libbing that was first rate throughout… you’ll leave the show smiling’ The Times

Jonathan Pie - Back To The Studio (work in progress)

The frustrated News reporter is back and he’s angrier than ever. Pie attempts to host a night of serious discussions on current affairs whilst simultaneously attempting to smash the system from within. Join him for a night of political comedy that soon descends into chaos.

WHY? 'This is political satire at its finest and Pie is ’the Most exciting satirical creation since partridge’ Rory Bremner

I Love Lou C

Lou’s ground breaking show about her experiences with baby loss.

Imagine visiting your favourite friend/aunty/spinster. She's a touch eccentric but always ‘alright’. Until last year. With a bit of self-discovery and some painful yet funny situations, this is a story about life and, ultimately, death.

WHY? ‘That she can spin between the happy and sad so quickly is testament to her abilities as an innately strong storyteller… she has the room rapt’ ★★★★ Chortle
