George Egg: DIY Chef

Award winning comedian George Egg (the ‘Anarchist Cook’) returns with a brand new show demonstrating more live cooking and laugh-out-loud comedy.

George’s family have banished him to the shed. But he simply has to keep cooking and his unstoppable urge to be creative means inventive solutions and some seriously tasty food. Expect power tools, gardening equipment and office supplies to be abused and re-purposed!

WHY? ‘Hugely entertaining’ The Guardian

An Evening with an Immigrant

A personal history of migration, written and performed by Inua Ellams.

Produced by Fuel
Presented by house

Littered with poems, stories and anecdotes, this is Inua’s ridiculous, fantastic and poignant immigrant-story.

Tales of escaping fundamentalist Islam in Nigeria, performing solo shows at the National Theatre and drinking wine with the Queen of England. All the while without a country to belong to or a place to call home.

Inua Ellams is an internationally touring poet, playwright, performer, graphic artist and designer. He was born in Nigeria in 1984, to a Muslim father and a Christian mother in what is now considered by many to be Boko Haram territory. He left Nigeria in 1996 for England, aged 12. Inua writes about his upbringing, the experience of immigration, and of living in the UK today.

WHY? ‘Such wonderfully generous company to keep on stage’ Metro

'He can capture the smell of a place, the sense of a moment' ★★★★ The Stage

'The dramatist and poet tells the tale of his tortuous path to the UK from Nigeria with passion and humour' ★★★★ The Guardian

'Vivid, multilayered piece of storytelling' ★★★★ The Times

'His poems are original and brimming with life… He can make the everyday seem remarkable' ★★★★★ A Younger Theatre

Jo Harman

Soul, blues, gospel and Beatles-worthy pop. These are the core ingredients of singer Jo Harman’s latest album People We Become. Produced and recorded at Nashville’s famed Sound Emporium Studio, it has seen her narrow her focus to the building blocks of ageless music - from powerful melodies to organic, natural-sounding arrangements.

WHY? Jo has racked up more than half-a-dozen nominations from the British Blues Awards

Mark Watson - MW

After more than 100 dates on the road in 2016 with his best-reviewed show to date, 'I'm Not Here', and a similarly marathon effort with the previous tour, Mark Watson is amazed to find there are STILL some areas of the country he's not visited much, and some towns that have been neglected altogether.

It's hard to be everywhere at once, so he's narrowed it down to a sensible plan: for the next tour, Watson will only visit places beginning with M or W, his initials - as they've already shown a commitment by having those names in the first place. A few of these will be favourite old haunts like Winchester or Manchester, but quite a few of them are the result of Googling and quite a number are so remote that we won't know they definitely exist until we get there. Also, some aren't actually towns so much as trains (from Marylebone to Wycombe), or ferries (across the Mersey), or a helicopter museum (in the double-point-scoring Middle Wallop).

The material will be a mixture of the classic and the never-before-seen. And in some cases a fair bit of it will be about being on a train.

Stephen K Amos - Bread and Circuses

Brexit. Trump. No more Mary Berry on the Great British Bake Off. Things are looking bleak, so wouldn’t it be better to just forget all about it?

Comic maestro Stephen K Amos might not be able to provide bread to the hungry masses, but no one else is going to put on a better circus. Leave your problems behind for the evening in the company of the ‘effusively charming’ Amos and who knows? Maybe the world will seem just a little bit brighter.

After all, when Ancient Rome needed to distract itself from politics, a few solutions were suggested, but none hit the spot quite like the simple idea of giving the people cheap food and plentiful entertainment – ‘panem et circenses’ or ‘bread and circuses’. Our circuses might no longer involve gladiator fights to the death, but the same principle applies. Modern politics is a confusing mess, so no one can blame you for giving it a miss in favour of a night of laughs.

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

‘The feel good comedy of a true stand-up legend’ Perth Now

‘Laughs came thick and fast throughout… don’t miss it’ The Age Melbourne

‘A note perfect hour’ ★★★★★ Metro

Jonathan Pie - Back To The Studio (work in progress)

Jonathan Pie returns to the stage in early 2018 with a brand new live show following a sell out tour ending at The London Palladium, A show that was described as 'electrifying' Chortle, 'Blistering' Evening standard and 'desperately misjudged’ The Times.

The frustrated News reporter is back and he’s angrier than ever. Pie attempts to host a night of serious discussions on current affairs whilst simultaneously attempting to smash the system from within. Join him for a night of political comedy that soon descends into chaos.

This is political satire at its finest and Pie is ’the Most exciting satirical creation since partridge’ Rory Bremner.

Age guidance 16+ years.

Jinkx Monsoon & Major Scales: The Vaudevillians

After selling out an often-extended Off-Broadway run, an Australian tour and a sell-out run at Soho Theatre, RuPaul’s Drag Race winner Jinkx Monsoon presents The Vaudevillians, a bawdy, rowdy musical comedy co-starring composer and musician Major Scales.

Throughout the 1920’s husband and wife performers Kitty Witless and Dr. Dan Von Dandy toured the United States as The Vaudevillians, wowing audiences with their edgy, original music. One day, while touring through Antarctica, they were victims of a devastating avalanche and were buried under two tons of sleet and snow – instantly freezing them alive.

But thanks to Global Warming, they recently thawed out only to discover that pop artists had stolen their music and passed it off as their own. Now, at long last, they are taking to the stage to reclaim their songs, performing their music as originally composed. It’s a vintage cabaret with a twist of drag.

Suitable for 16+ years.

WHY? ‘The laughs are jam-packed and the musicianship is flawless.’ Time Out Melbourne
