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

★★★★ Sunday Times | ★★★★ Edinburgh Festivals | ★★★★ Broadway Baby

Suitable for ages 14+ years.

As seen on BBC2's QI and Pilgrimage, ABC TV's The Project and BBC1's Live at the Apollo.

Andy Parsons: Healing the Nation

Boris Johnson replaces Theresa May as PM. Show REWRITTEN.

The 2019 General Election happens. Show REWRITTEN again.

COVID-19 arrives – show REWRITTEN for the third time. So the 2019/2020 Healing the Nation Tour has become the 2019/2020/2021 Healing the Nation Tour, and as the tour has gone on, there’s been less and less healing and more and more of the opposite.

Admittedly, I could have changed the title but it still seemed strangely appropriate - and some of the gigs have been rescheduled so it would prove confusing to existing ticketholders if the ticket said 'Healing the Nation' but the show was now called 'My Life in Ballet'.

So, we have the serially rewritten Healing the Nation Tour 2019/2020 now extended into 2021, not so much due to popular demand but more lack of open venues. And with negative powers of healing. Yet this latest, very new version of the show is my favourite so far.

Hot off completely selling out at the Edinburgh Festival, London's Soho Theatre, their Spring 2020 tour and the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, musical comedy sisters Flo & Joan have extended their tour and will once again be parading their dark and waggish songs about the place.

Age guidance 14+

'These intricately crafted, flawlessly performed numbers will have you howling with laughter one minute, wiping away a tear the next' The Telegraph

‘Their style is stiletto sharp, their diction perfect as they race through their complex rhymes’ Evening Standard

'If Flanders & Swann and Flight of the Conchords and Garfunkel & Oates had a six-way time-travelling gang-bang that somehow mixed all their DNA, the offspring might end up sounding something like Flo and Joan' Steve Bennett, Chortle

Geoff Norcott: I Blame the Parents

The fourth national tour for Geoff Norcott, following on the back of Conswervative, Traditionalism and Taking Liberties.

This time Geoff talks less politics (alright, there will probably be a bit), but this brand-new show will mostly explore personal responsibility, parenting and who should take the blame when things go wrong.

Whatever happened to the idea of personal responsibility? In the age of victimhood, it seems like whatever’s wrong with your life it can be blamed on someone else. Governments, employers… some bigot from four hundred years ago.

Where did it go wrong? It has to be the parents. Every generation there’s an opportunity for a new set of mums and dads to set their kids straight and make a stand against whatever trendy nonsense is currently doing the rounds. But do we? Or is it easier to give into fear and the pursuit of a quiet life?

Geoff has realised he’s also a bag of contradictions. Raised on a south London council estate by two maverick parents, there’s plenty he has to sift through. His Dad was a trade union man who obsessed over stocks and shares. His mum was a closet chauvinist and far too frank on the subject of sex.

With a child of his own, Geoff spies a one-off chance for his family to finally get it right and produce a balanced human being, but can he filter out his own bollocks before it gets to his son?

Double Edinburgh Comedy Award ‘Best Show’ nominee Ahir Shah is one of the fastest-rising comedians of his generation.
