Shappi Khorsandi: Skittish Warrior... Confessions of a Club Comic

LIMITED AVAILABILITY

Comedian, author, cultural icon and - most recently - idiot who agreed to be tortured on 'I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here!', Shappi Khorsandi is a woman of many parts.

But live comedy is where she's in her element, and now - after her spell in the jungle - she sets out for the more welcoming destination of Maidenhead.

Expect a show packed full of sharp-tongued gags and cultural observation, this is Shappi's warts and all journey through the 90s comedy scene, to breaking through on telly and then letting it all slip away.

WHY? As heard on Radio 4, read in two warmly-received books and seen sleeping in a hammock

Age guidance 14+ years

Choice Grenfell

In these somewhat uncertain times comes a wonderful evening of warmth, wit and gentle humour.

The best of Joyce’s hilarious songs and monologues from Stately As A Galleon and Free Activity Period to A Terrible Worrier and First Flight.

Joyce is our guide for a delightful delve into some of her most endearing characters, ably accompanied by her trusted pianist William Blezard.

As Joyce would have said “We request the pleasure of your company” in the company of one of Britain’s best loved comediennes.

The family of William Blezard (Joyce’s musical director and pianist) have also given permission for us to use material from previously unheard rehearsal tape recordings and personal letters sent from Joyce to William.

WHY? The show will provide a completely unique view into the life of Joyce Grenfell through the eyes of her well respected friend, William Blezard

Clinton Baptiste in The Paranormalist Returns

Join paranormal sensation Clinton Baptiste as he takes you on a hilarious yet touching journey through his life, out the other side and beyond the Celestial Curtains.

Clinton Baptiste is the hapless clairvoyant, medium and psychic from Peter Kay’s smash hit Channel 4 TV show Peter Kay's Phoenix Nights. Now, some eighteen years after the show aired, he returns to conjure up his extraordinary powers for a new generation.

Clinton will give readings to the audience, offering advice from beyond the grave. He will predict your future, tell you about your past and all manner of spooky stuff an’ that.

But more, he takes you through his demise, his comeback and finally… finally on this special night, he will attempt to pass over to The Other Side and return (before the venue want you all out)… with THE ANSWER!

‘Hundreds of years ago when man walked the planet he had no real means of communication. In time man developed a phenomena which has never been fully understood by the psychic community. This phenomena is… Clinton Baptiste’ Peter Kay (That Phenomena)

WHY? The world-renowned clairvoyant, medium and psychic is back!

Suitable for ages 14+ years.

Courtyard Theatre
£18

Rhys James - Snitch

Mock The Week regular and star of his own BBC Radio 4 series, Rhys James heads out on his first national tour.

In early 2019, Rhys was asked to go back to his school and inspire the Year 11s. Given that teenagers are a nightmare and there was no fee, he ghosted the teacher who had emailed. Bit of a shame really, given that he's figured out the true circle of life, has solved parenting despite having zero children, and even thinks he can predict the curriculum of schools in 50 years. Maybe he'll inspire some Year 11s in 2069.

As also seen on Comedy Central’s Roast Battle, Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central, and heard on Radio 4’s The News Quiz.

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
