Stephen K Amos: Bouquets and Brickbats

Highly acclaimed stand-up comedian Stephen K Amos hits the road this Autumn with his brand new tour.

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

Gyles Brandreth - Break a Leg!

They say all political careers end in tears.

In Brandreth's case it's tears of laughter as the actor, author, ex-MP, One Show reporter and QI, Have I Got News For You and Countdown star is back on tour with his new show celebrating all things theatrical.

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

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

‘Total joy’ ★★★★★ Scotsman

WHY? ‘Entertaining and inspiring… perfectly structured with a rare sensitivity and intelligence’ ★★★★ The Times
