Greg Davies - You Magnificent Beast (work in progress)

Greg Davies, BAFTA nominated star of Cuckoo, Man Down, The Inbetweeners and Taskmaster, is back with his first stand up show in four years.

Join 'undoubtedly one of the kingpins of British comedy' (Evening Standard) on his biggest ever tour. Come witness the magnificent beast that is Greg Davies.

'One of this country’s best comedians' The Times



Ayesha Hazarika: State of the Nation

Politics, power and how we lost the plot.

Ayesha Hazarika, MBE, started her career as a stand-up comedian playing clubs across the country. She then took what she thought was a natural diversion into the Labour Party as a Special Adviser working for Gordon Brown, Harriet Harman and Ed Miliband.

Since leaving front line politics she’s become a much sought after commentator writing for the FT, Guardian, Evening Standard, New Statesman and Grazia.

Ayesha has also returned to her stand-up roots. Her one woman show Tales from the Pink Bus was a sell-out hit at the 2016 Edinburgh festival and she's been in huge demand on TV and radio recently starring as a guest on Matt Forde’s Unspun for Dave.

Further credits include regular appearances on Good Morning Britain (ITV), Sky Papers (Sky News), The Andrew Marr Show (BBC1), Newsnight (BBC2), The Agenda (ITV) and The Today Programme (BBC Radio4).

Ayesha lifts the lid on what life’s really like behind the scenes at Westminster with brutal honesty and humour and asks what's next for British politics.

The State of the Nation is one of the best things to come out of British politics in a long time.

WHY? 'Hazarika’s return to stand up is also public service, never less than entertaining' The Guardian
