Matt Richardson / Slash

A lot has happened to Matt Richardson since his last tour in 2013. A lot of it is quite strange.

Most comedians hope to win accolades and make people laugh, very few end up with Heat Magazine’s Weird Crush trophy.

From interviewing millionaire dogs in LA, ghost hunting with Craig Revel Horwood and having his phone nicked by Kate Moss - it’s been an odd, but fun, few years.

Now Matt can finally tell people about it, as well as talking about everything else on his mind.

WHY? The host of Virgin Radio's Drive-time show, ITV2’s The Xtra Factor and Celebrity Haunted Hotel Live!

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.
