Harry Baker - I am 10,000

Mathematician-turned-world-slam-champion Harry Baker turns 10,000 days old, celebrating numbers, words and life itself.

Harry's love of language and logic has got him through literal marathons, seen him rap battle in front of Ice Cube, and now has him analysing the technical accuracy of So Solid Crew's 21 seconds. He's got 99 problems but maths ain't one.

WHY? 'Ferociously intelligent' ★★★★ Scotsman

John-Luke Roberts: After Me Comes the Flood (But in French)

The critically acclaimed idiot John-Luke Roberts returns to the road with another ridiculously long titled show this autumn.

In a brand-new hour of extraordinary daft-hearted comedy, expect to not know why you are laughing once more… even when he gives you the punchline first. Jokes about staring into the Nietzschean void, the stupid decisions of kings and how Pinocchio can save the world all might make appearances in this hour of absolute silliness. But then again, maybe they won't. Who knows what could happen!

WHY? 'Freewheeling escapism... A joy' ★★★★★ Fest Magazine

'A masterpiece... The show is exquisite, with every last element fine-tuned to perform its function' ★★★★★ One4Review

'An impeccably choreographed, giddily inventive, turbo-charged hour' ★★★★ The Telegraph

'A hit' ★★★★ The Times

'Killer gags... glorious idiocy' ★★★★ The Guardian

'Mind warping hour which follows through brilliantly on its own absurd logic... relentlessly funny' ★★★★ The List

Suitable for ages 16+ years

Robin Morgan - What a Man, What a Man...

Following a sell-out 2019 Edinburgh run, the ‘utterly hilarious’ (Broadway Baby) stand-up embarks on his second UK tour with his new show - What A Man, What A Man, What A Man, What A Mighty Good Man (Say It Again Now).

Robin’s a father to his son and a son to his father. But what makes a good male role model?

As seen on Sky One, BBC Three, Comedy Central and BBC One’s Stand Up At BBC Wales.

Robin is a writer for BBC 2's The Mash Report and Radio 4's the News Quiz. He has been tour support for Ellie Taylor and Iain Stirling and warm-up for the Graham Norton Show.

WHY? ‘Well-written, hard-working stand up from a massively likeable performer who must surely be on the verge of nationwide fame’ Chortle

Choice Grenfell

In these somewhat uncertain times comes a wonderful evening of warmth, wit and gentle humour.

The best of Joyce’s hilarious songs and monologues from Stately As A Galleon and Free Activity Period to A Terrible Worrier and First Flight.

Joyce is our guide for a delightful delve into some of her most endearing characters, ably accompanied by her trusted pianist William Blezard.

As Joyce would have said “We request the pleasure of your company” in the company of one of Britain’s best loved comediennes.

The family of William Blezard (Joyce’s musical director and pianist) have also given permission for us to use material from previously unheard rehearsal tape recordings and personal letters sent from Joyce to William.

WHY? The show will provide a completely unique view into the life of Joyce Grenfell through the eyes of her well respected friend, William Blezard

Kendal Mountain Festival - UK Tour 2020

Fire up your imagination! Watch an incredible collection of short adventure films on the big screen, stories of human endurance and breathtaking environments.

Plus hear from the amazing Anna McNuff, joining the festival on stage. Anna is an endurance athlete, adventurer and mischief maker. She recently completed an incredible adventure running the distance of 100 marathons through Britain completely barefoot!

Named by The Guardian as one of the top female adventurers of our time, Anna has a capacity for feats of exceptional endurance, most of them solo, having previously run self-supported along New Zealand’s 3000km Te Araroa Trail.

Festival Director Steve Scott will present the evening and there’ll be prizes from the tour sponsors.

WHY? 'Awesome Saturday night out @kendalmountainfestival. Watched the most awe-inspiring, jaw-droppingly beautiful line up of short films and listened to the legend @annamcnuff talk about her South American travel tales. Always honest, inspiring, crazy and funny' @sweatybettyruns | Kingston, March 2019

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.

Age guidance 16+

WHY? ‘On the cusp of greatness’ London Evening Standard
