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

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

Suitable for ages 14+ years.

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

Adam Rowe: Pinnacle

Pinnacle is a brand new hour of brutally honest, opinionated, no holds barred stand-up from DAVE’s Best Joke Of The Edinburgh Fringe Winner, Liverpool Comedian Of The Year Winner, and English Comedian Of The Year Finalist; Adam Rowe.

His online stand-up clips have amassed over 50 million views, he’s appeared on various TV shows and Adam was hand-picked as tour support for Jason Manford as well as huge American stars Andrew Schulz and Bill Burr.

At 27 years of age, Adam is supposed to be in the prime of his life, which is a truly terrifying thought. Is this really as good as it’s going to get? It’s all down hill from here? Not if he’s got anything to do with it.

The stand up comedian shines a light on how hard it is to be a good person these days.
