Stephen K Amos: Bouquets and Brickbats

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

As Brexit looms on, Trump reigns rampant and everyone seems pushed to extremes, Stephen’s main aim is to cheer us up.

Forget everything that’s going on in the world and immerse yourself in the warmth of “one of the most likable figures in British Comedy“ (Radio Times). As seen on QI, The People’s History of LGBT, Live At The Apollo, Have I Got News For You and What Does The K Stand For? on BBC Radio 4.

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

'Unashamed feel-good entertainment’ The Evening Standard

Age guidance 16+ years.

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

Suitable for ages 12+ years.

Tim Key - Megadate

WHY? ‘Flabbergastingly funny... I have never enjoyed myself in a comedy show more ★★★★★ The Times

‘If this is love, Key’s hard to resist’ ★★★★ The Metro

‘Megadate is another Tim Key delight: delicate, yet a feat of comic strength’ ★★★★ The Independent

Helen Lederer and Athena Kugblenu

An Edinburgh Festival preview from So Comedy.

Helen Lederer feels it’s time to spill all, before she forgets and gets taken off the patches altogether. What went on in the Big Brother House?

Can she be honest about stand-up comedy, being fat, wheezy and other secrets? probably not. She might lie.

‘A miracle of comic compression and control’ The Times

'Divinely witty' The Guardian

'Cleverly insane' The Observer

Athena Kugblenu says the world's never had more knowledge, yet never more stupidity. She can’t help but notice consistencies between the universe and herself. How can she blame people for choosing Trump when she's choosing the wrong men?

Clearly we haven't realised she constantly makes mistakes so we don't have to. Join Athena for a tour of the world’s most pressing catastrophes which pale compared to what happened when she fixed her own washing machine.

'A smart, impassioned comedian' The Scotsman

'Good material, sharp presentation... an important voice' The Sunday Times

WHY? Helen is famed for The Naked Video and Absolutely Fabulous while Athena writes for BBC Radio 4’s News Quiz

£10

Sophie Willan: Branded

Fresh from a total sell out run at the Edinburgh Fringe, this multi award winning break out star is heading out on tour!
