Lucy Frederick and David Mills Double Bill

Lucy Frederick – Even More Naked

Some years ago, the comedian appeared in a reality TV show in which she had to get naked. Like, completely naked. No socks or anything. And while that might sound alarming, she's since discovered that actually, there's a far more terrifying way to get your bits and bobs out for other people. And you don't even have to take your coat off.

This show is another eye wateringly honest confessional from Lucy about having courage and taking the plunge with life, friendships and love.

A show about negotiating the tricky world of emotional intimacy while wearing a giant suit of armour.

WHY? ‘A genuinely gifted performer, I am so happy l found this show…’ ★★★★ The Scotsman

‘Quite frankly, she’s pretty adorable’ ★★★★ TVBomb


David Mills – Focus People

Smart, sharp, laugh-out loud stand up comedy for adults sick of being scolded by celebrities and policed by children. David gets you through the coming apocalypse feeling dynamite.

The London based American actor and comedian has a cocktail-lounge-lizard image which belies an acerbic wit cut with fire-and-brimstone rants! Smart observations on contemporary life are set to superb comedic delivery alongside witty banter and salty sarcasm.

'A superior act. Politics to surrealism... an hour in his company an indulgent delight.' ★★★★★ Chortle

‘Essential viewing’ ★★★★ BroadwayBaby

‘Total joy’ ★★★★★ Scotsman

Steve Bugeja - Almost

The comedian comes to Norden Farm following three critically acclaimed shows and direct from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. He’s hit the road for his third and largest UK tour.

Steve Bugeja was voted “most likely to be forgotten” at school (the reunion was in February, apparently).

To prove his former classmates wrong, he hits the road for his third and largest UK tour to date with Almost, following three critically-acclaimed shows and direct from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Almost sees Steve trapped on a 13-hour flight when he receives a text that flips his entire world upside down, leading him to contemplate issues of great importance. Is finding “the one” possible? Can we trust the pharmaceutical industry? And why are Japanese toilets so much better than ours?

Since winning the BBC New Comedy Award, Steve has appeared on shows including Love Island: Aftersun (ITV2), Russell Howard’s Good News (Comedy Central) and Top Tens (BBC3). Making a name for himself internationally, Steve has been invited to perform at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival twice, appearing on ABCTV’s Opening Night Comedy Allstars Supershow and twice on Comedy Up Late. Also a prolific writer, Steve was on the writing team for The Russell Howard Hour and has contributed material for shows including Mock the Week and The Now Show.

‘Drum tight, as if polished by a sitcom writers’ room to cram as many jokes in as humanly possible’ Chortle

‘An eye for comic detail that’s all his own’ Guardian

‘Plentiful jokes and compelling storytelling’ Scotsman
