Emmanuel Sonubi – CV

Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee Emmanuel Sonubi presents a whistle stop tour through the jobs that have led him to become one of the hottest stand-ups on the circuit in the brand-new show, Curriculum Vitae.

Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee Emmanuel Sonubi presents a whistle stop tour through the jobs that have led him to become one of the hottest stand-ups on the circuit in the brand-new show, Curriculum Vitae.

Emmanuel will take the audience on a hilarious and sometimes poignant journey that explores the professions that he’s had prior to becoming a comedian, discussing how those experiences helped shape his comedic voice. From working in IT to the doors of London's nightlife whilst building up an impressive list of musical theatre credits.

As see on, QI (BBC), Alan Davies As Yet Untitled (Dave), Rhod Gilberts Growing Pains (Comedy Central), Apprentice 'You're Fired' (BBC), Pointless Celebrities (BBC) and headlining Live at the Apollo (BBC).

Emmanuel said today, "I'm thrilled to be back on tour in the UK with 'Curriculum Vitae'. Last year's tour was an amazing experience and selling out most of the shows was incredible! Writing this new show has been a lot more fun than writing an actual CV and, I get to be honest".

London based Emmanuel Sonubi's career in comedy started only a few years ago and quickly grew from strength to strength earning himself a reputation as "one to watch out for". A regular favourite on the comedy circuit, he is one of the most sought-after acts working today. Emmanuel’s credits continue to grow as does his popularity.

Miles Jupp - On I Bang

A tale about surprise, fear, luck, love and qualified medical practitioners.

Since Miles’ last tour finished at The London Palladium in 2017, he’s been in The Full Monty on Disney Plus, The Durrells and Why Didn’t They Ask Evans? on ITV, as well as a heap of episodes of Frankie Boyle’s New World Order and Have I Got News For You. He’s made an award-winning radio series and he’s published a novel. But for Covid, he would have played a lead at the RSC. Hey ho. Nevertheless he’s done a play in the West End and played the Emperor of Austria and Europe in a Ridley Scott film.

Yet one sunny day in the middle of all this, he suddenly suffered a brain seizure. This led to the discovery of a tumour the size of a cherry tomato, and a rather pressing need to undergo major neurosurgery. Obviously, one doesn’t wish to make a big deal of it, but the experience has left him with a story to tell and a few things that he’d like to share with the room. So that’s exactly what he’s doing in his new show On I Bang – a tale about surprise, fear, luck, love and qualified medical practitioners.

Punt and Dennis (work in progress)

Hugh Dennis and Steve Punt are back on tour for the first time in 10 years.

Older but not really much wiser, they are returning to what they do best; sitting in traffic jams wondering if a different route would have been better, and then in the evening, presenting their new live show.

What have they learned from a decade of following the news for Mock the Week and The Now Show? What wisdom has experience taught them? And have they learned any new jokes? Let’s hope so. They promise they have.

Geoff Norcott: Basic Bloke

On his sixth UK tour, the comedian tries to make sense of the current cultural and political scene with his playfully provocative brand of humour.

Whether it's the dire blandness of the two main parties or the shamelessly shoe-horned right-on messages in adverts and films, Geoff continues to tread in areas much of comedy leaves well alone.

But this time around he also has a mission. As well as casting his everyman eye over what's happening in wider society, Geoff is trying to unpick what's happening with your average bloke. Remember them?

It’s been a rough couple of years for blokes. Toxic masculinity has grabbed all the headlines and ruined it for communal garden geezers, who have been put under the microscope like never before. At first glance, there’s not much to examine – there’s no Bloke 2.0.

Taking up his own bloke’s-eye-view. Geoff can see that despite the social media vortex, your man in the street, average Joe, man on the Clapham Omnibus and your John Smiths just keep plodding on, fuelled by a diet of football, sheds, super-hero films, sporting autobiographies, wearing socks at all times and strategically burying feelings when necessary.

However, under the paraphernalia of manhood and the sometimes basic, even primal, behaviour of dads and lads, Geoff can see that there is something mysterious and definitely non-toxic going on.

A kindly and funny stock-take of both himself and his fellow man, Geoff unlocks some of the more complicated behaviour of your husbands, dads and brothers.
