Alex Edelman - Just for Us

Bostonian comedian. Jew. Sweetheart.

Alex Edelman’s first show, Millennial – about very traumatic stock photos and young people - won an Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Newcomer, the first show by an American to do so since 1997.

The follow-up, Everything Handed to You - about identity and the availability of plug sockets in airports - was even more acclaimed: selling out its entire Edinburgh run and garnering the second-best reviews of any comedy show at the Festival. It was also filmed in its entirety for a special called Live at the BBC, which is currently available on Netflix.

Just For Us is what comes next. Nominated for the Barry award at Melbourne International Comedy Festival, earning the prestigious Herald Angel award as well as being nominated for the Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Show, it’s about gorillas that can-do sign language and tribalism. Come.

WHY? ‘Boasting technical flair and a precocious authority, Edelman’s comedy manages to capture the voice of Generation Y’ Guardian

‘I fondly imagined this was what it might have been like to watch Jerry Seinfeld when he was in his early 20s. There is no greater praise than that.’ ★★★★★ Mirror

‘Every story is a precision-engineered Rolls-Royce of a routine, perfectly timed and constructed, each morsel of information released just at the right moment’ Chortle

Jeeves and Wooster in Perfect Nonsense

A new play adapted from the works of P G Wodehouse 

Written by the Goodale Brothers 

Take your seats with caution! 

Aristocratic buffoon Bertie Wooster has hired the theatre for the night to present his one man show detailing a recent and rather spontaneous series of misadventures, including the theft of a novelty cow creamer and a narrow escape from unwanted matrimony.

The only trouble is Bertie hasn't worked out who's going to play the parts. Will the show be a disaster? Will the scenery stay upright? Or will his trusty manservant Jeeves step in and save the day?

“I have to say I’m finding this acting business rather easy Jeeves! Apart from having to do a newt impression, I think that went tremendously well.”   

In a joyous reimagining of the classic P G Wodehouse characters, three actors hurl themselves from role to role as they race to tell the story of Bertie's own farcical adventures.

Jeeves and Wooster in Perfect Nonsense was created by the Goodale Brothers, adapted primarily from P G Wodehouse The Code of the Woosters. After hugely successful runs in the West End, it won the 2014 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy.

Simon Munnery: Alan Parker Urban Warrior Farewell Tour

Multi award-winning comedian Simon Munnery reprises his notorious alter ego, the bedsit anarchist Alan Parker Urban Warrior.

Once the most radical, now the only radical, Alan returns with the old gold, the old truths, and some new truths (based on the old truths).

For over 35 years, Munnery has performed around the world, experimenting with and innovating the stand-up form. In the 1990s, his Alan Parker: Urban Warrior character took the comedy circuit by storm, garnering Munnery his own BBC Radio 1 series, which Time Out London called ‘the funniest thing on Radio One’ and a residency on ITV’s Saturday Live. 1996 saw him collaborate with Graham Linehan and Stewart Lee for BBC2 show, London Shouting, in his Alan Parker guise, and the character also become a regular contributor to NME magazine.

Simon Munnery is a British Comedy Award nominee, Perrier Award nominee, Sony Radio Award winner and Chortle Award winner. He’s most recently appeared in Channel 4’s acclaimed Flowers, and will soon be seen in Will Sharpe’s Louis Wain movie biopic, co-starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Claire Foy.

WHY? ‘Gloriously inept radical anorak’ The Times

‘Marx, Engels and Sid Vicious would all have died laughing' The Guardian

‘Munnery’s parody of a punk rock anarcho snowflake, hand drawn with real love for its subject, returns to a world worse than any he could have imagined in his home decade of the 1980s' Stewart Lee

Stephen Bailey - Can't be Bothered

Stephen Bailey has made a name for himself for being a little gossip.

This year he’s grown up and decided to have a conversation with you (but a funny one – he’s still Channel 5’s darling) - about everything that is going on in the world.

Host of Channel 5’s Celebs on the Farm, Stephen has appeared on ITV’s Coronation Street, ITV2’s The Stand Up Sketch Show, BBC2’s Live at the Apollo and The Apprentice: You’re Fired - it’s been a very big year for Stephen, he’s even bought a new microwave.

He’s the best mate you want to chat to at the pub and he thinks the world has gone mad. This show is bit of storytelling, some inappropriate anecdotes and more sincerity than he’s ever dared have! What more do you want? He’s basically Holly Willoughby.

WHY? ‘An outrageous, hilarious hour of comedy’ British Comedy Guide

But more, he takes you through his demise, his comeback and finally… finally on this special night, he will attempt to pass over to The Other Side and return (before the venue want you all out)… with THE ANSWER!

Rhys James - Snitch

Mock The Week regular and star of his own BBC Radio 4 series, Rhys James heads out on his first national tour.

In early 2019, Rhys was asked to go back to his school and inspire the Year 11s. Given that teenagers are a nightmare and there was no fee, he ghosted the teacher who had emailed. Bit of a shame really, given that he's figured out the true circle of life, has solved parenting despite having zero children, and even thinks he can predict the curriculum of schools in 50 years. Maybe he'll inspire some Year 11s in 2069.

As also seen on Comedy Central’s Roast Battle, Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central, and heard on Radio 4’s The News Quiz.
