Iain Stirling - U OK Hun? X

Iain Stirling is back after a summer narrating ITV2's smash hit Love Island and now you can see his actual face on his brand new tour!

After selling out his entire Edinburgh Fringe run out in advance and adding shows due to extra public demand, the BAFTA winning comedian now hits the road to perform his acclaimed, hot ticket show around the UK.

Join the 'star of comedy' (The i) as he explores dinner party etiquette and the pressures on a generation brought up in a world of instant gratification. How has modern living affected our ability to find long term happiness? Can social media ever reflect real life? And why is the floor lava?

As well as hosting ITV2’s newest hit comedy gameshow CelebAbility, Iain’s intuitive razor-sharp humour has previously been seen on E4's Virtually Famous, Comedy Central's Drunk History and Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central, BBC Three's Russell Howard's Good News and Sweat the Small Stuff and ITV2's Fake Reaction and Safe Word.

Griff Rhys Jones - Where Was I?

The star of Not the Nine o'clock News, Smith & Jones and Three Men In A Boat.

Griff as he airs stories, anecdotes, reminiscences and outright lies – from forty years of travelling – down rivers and up mountains, into Africa, out of India, and across the arid wastes of the BBC canteen. It's a career, if you mean bouncing chaotically downhill without a map.

WHY? ‘Great comedy’ ★★★★ The Telegraph


Please note
Due to illness, tonight’s performance has unfortunately had to be postponed. Griff sends his sincere apologies and we will endeavour to confirm a revised date for the performance over the next few days or so.

What do I do now?
• A member of our team will be in touch with you shortly to discuss your options (below)

• You can:
1 - Receive a credit to your Norden Farm account or receive a refund
2 - Wait to see if a new date is confirmed (which will be in the next few days) at which we point we will contact you again

We will now be screening Paddington 2 tonight at 8pm. Griff bookers can purchase tickets at the discounted rate of £5 – just use the code GRIFF5 when booking. Paddington stars Hugh Bonneville, Hugh Grant, Julie Walters and Brendan Gleeson. The comedy has been a hit with families and adult audiences alike! You read more and book here.

John Robins - The Darkness of Robins

Edinburgh Comedy Award winner 2017!

John Robins – one of the most exciting and distinctive voices in comedy – returns reflecting on love, loss and lamenting the fact he can’t break up with himself.

The stand-up, vibe magnet and London’s saddest DJ ™ would love to promise The Darkness of Robins won’t be an hour-long yell of a show, but he can’t. He’ll shout, snarl and sneer in his attempts to grapple with life’s fall-outs in what promises to be a pivotal moment in his being. Powerful, angst-ridden comedy at its finest, this is a must-see from one of the UK’s brightest talents.

John has firmly established himself on the comedy circuit since his debut in 2005, and with fellow comedian Elis James has enjoyed a meteoric success with The Elis James and John Robins show on Radio X, which, like Ricky Gervais, Stephen Merchant and Adam & Joe before them, has spawned one of the UK’s most popular podcasts. The pair recently completed an acclaimed UK tour, selling out Shepherd’s Bush Empire within minutes.

He will headline the upcoming series of BBC2's Live from the BBC and is a regular face on TV, with recent appearances including BBC2's Mock The Week, Dave's Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled and BBC3's Russell Howard’s Good News. He also has a host of radio credits under his belt including BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show, The News Quiz and Dilemma.

WHY? 'An hour in his charming, generous and honest company is so effortlessly entertaining' ★★★★ Chortle

£14.50

Suitable for 16+ years. No latecomers admitted.
