James Mullinger Live - One Night Only

The Maidenhead-born comedian has taken Canada by storm since moving there in 2014.

He has been nominated for a Canadian Comedy Award and a Just For Laughs Award for Best Comedy Show. His stand up special Anything Is Possible was performed to over 5000 people, released internationally on Amazon Prime and was a bestseller on Blu Ray in North America.

James twice beat Jerry Seinfeld's sales record with his colossal arena shows. In 2015, James Buckley (The Inbetweeners) played James in a big screen movie about his early years in comedy (starring actors from Twilight, Downton Abbey and Notting Hill and comedians such as Jimmy Carr and Gilbert Gottfried). James works closely with many charities and in the past few years has raised over half a million dollars for children in need and women affected by violence.

He has sold out Norden Farm four times and loves it here so much that has picked this venue for his only UK tour date of 2018!

WHY? ‘Something of a sensation. The anecdotes come thick, fast and raucously funny’ Evening Standard

‘The moment this veteran British comic bounds on to the stage, you are in for an amazing hour of solo comedy’ Montreal Times

‘A great stand up’ Jimmy Carr

‘Fantastic, very talented and very funny. The next big thing’ Michael McIntyre

Supported by Ethan Ash and Andrew Doyle.

Gyles Brandreth - Break a Leg!

They say all political careers end in tears.

In Brandreth's case it's tears of laughter as the actor, author, ex-MP, One Show reporter and QI, Have I Got News For You and Countdown star is back on tour with his new show celebrating all things theatrical.

Without hesitation or repetition (and just a touch of deviation), the BBC Radio 4 Just a Minute regular delivers a dazzling hour of wit, wisdom, high drama, low comedy, and hilarious name-dropping.

WHY? ‘A master raconteur’ ★★★★★ The Telegraph

‘Total joy’ ★★★★★ Scotsman

Suitable for ages 12+ years.

Courtyard Theatre
£20
