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 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
‘Stephen’s show was hilarious from the first line, and for the whole performance I don’t think a single joke died’ Voice Magazine

And now the writer and broadcaster is undertaking his first UK tour since 2011, giving fans a rare opportunity to see him live.

From North Korea though the Congo and Syria to Chernobyl, he's visited some of the most unusual places on the planet. Joly famously attended school with Osama Bin Laden and armed with a trusty Powerpoint, fans can expect his holiday snaps to provide comedy and a sense of danger.
Why? The best-selling author will meet fans after the show to sign copies of his latest book, The Hezbollah Hiking Club
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.
