Shaparak Khorsandi: IT WAS THE 90s!

The decade where Shaparak left an important part of her brain somewhere in a field in Hampshire…

From indie discos to unflattering crop tops… a trip down memory lane to the decade where ‘kinky’ was nurse roleplay and whipped cream, when Shaparak found herself flying about London with hope in her heart, a tenner in her pocket and spare knickers in her handbag.

How does the decade of binge drinking and walks of shame look now without snakebite and black tinted specs?

Luke Kempner: Macho Macho Man

Star of Spitting Image, Steph’s Packed Lunch and with over 10 million views of his online videos, Luke Kempner is one of the UK’s hottest mimics and stand-up comics.

With a hilariously razor sharp roster of contemporary impressions ranging from Piers Morgan and Bojo to Ru Paul, Luke has become a household name and is bringing his highly anticipated brand new show, Macho Macho Man on the road.

Luke is a Macho Macho Man. He came up with the title whilst listening to his Les Mis album for the 28,000th time. Luke tries to work out what masculinity really means with the help of Louis Theroux, the cast of Downton Abbey and even Jürgen Klopp. Luke struggles to fit in, between turning up to a dance audition in football boots to falling in love with a 'cool guy' that sits in the row in front of him at the football. Will Luke ever become the Macho Macho Man he dreams of?

Don’t miss this remarkable one-man show from one of Britain’s most exciting, new comedy talents. Macho Macho Man follows Luke’s previous show House of Faces, which sold out at the Edinburgh Fringe and toured nationwide in 2019. As seen (and heard) on Spitting Image (Britbox), Steph’s Packed Lunch (Channel 4), The Last Leg (Channel 4) The Stand-Up Sketch Show (ITV2), Love Island: Aftersun (ITV2) and The Now Show (BBC Radio 4)

Simon Brodkin – Troublemaker

World-famous prankster and creator of the hugely popular Lee Nelson, is back on stage with TROUBLEMAKER, his sensational new stand-up show, NOW EXTENDED INTO 2022 DUE TO OVERWHELMING DEMAND!

After showering Sepp Blatter with banknotes, upstaging Kanye West at Glastonbury, and handing Theresa May her P45, the critically acclaimed comedian explores why trouble has followed him from primary school through medical school to lockdown homeschool. And what it’s like to be chased by Donald Trump’s bodyguards, how to make the police laugh while they’re arresting you, and what to do when you’re outed as a Jew by the Ku Klux Klan.

Simon is one of Britain’s most loved comedians following his smash hit BBC shows Lee Nelson’s Well Good Show and Well Funny People, Channel 4’s award-nominated Britain’s Biggest Hoaxer and multiple TV appearances (Live at the Apollo, Sunday Night at the Palladium, The John Bishop Christmas Show, Children In Need, and Channel 4’s Comedy Gala).

After the success of his stand-up show 100% Simon Brodkin, selected by The Guardian and The Evening Standard as one of their Best Comedy Shows at the Edinburgh Festival, TROUBLEMAKER has been wowing sold-out audiences nationwide, and is the must-see show of 2022!

Lou Sanders: One Word: Wow

It's me again, your old internet friend Dr Giggles.

It's time for a little get together; so pull up a chair, get all cosy and let me tell you about the time I gave this horse a boner. I'll bring my skates, you bring your wallet and we'll all take some piccies.

Maybe this show is the real vaccine?

Mike Bubbins: Throwback

Mike Bubbins, star of hit podcast The Socially Distant Sports Bar, and of BBC television comedies Mammoth, Tourist Trap and The Unexplainers, unleashes THROWBACK, his first ever solo UK stand-up tour. And things may never be the same again.

THROWBACK is a powerful, thought-provoking, visceral hour of stand-up comedy, that pushes boundaries, defies neat descriptions and challenges the audience...

AS IF IT IS!

It’s actually an hour and a half of really funny stories, pretty impressive characterisations, possibly a song (he said he’ll see how that goes), a bit of nostalgia about the good old days, a bit of optimism about the good new days, and Mike generally having a laugh about life and not taking himself, or anything else, too seriously. Having said that, he may, at some point in the show, get very annoyed at berks, whether in the past, the present, or the future. Very annoyed.

So basically THROWBACK is a comedy show about Bubbins sharing, and bringing to life, the stuff that he finds funny. As comedy concepts go, it’s a pretty straightforward one, really.

‘They asked me to do a UK comedy tour, called THROWBACK...and so I did.’  Mike Bubbins
