Sofie Hagen: The Bumswing

One of British comedy's most exciting talents (although she's Danish), winner of the prestigious Edinburgh Best Newcomer Award, a cult podcaster and now the author of the hugely successful book Happy Fat, Sofie Hagen returns to Maidenhead with a brand new show direct from the Edinburgh Fringe.

A show about the things you forget, the things you remember, and the things you wish you could forget. But also, there's a bit about bums.

An evening of brilliant stand-up from a fast-rising star.

WHY? As seen and heard on BBC3, BBC1, Radio 4, Comedy Central and Channel 4

Age guidance 14+ years.

Courtyard Theatre
£15

Alex Edelman - Just for Us

Bostonian comedian. Jew. Sweetheart.

Alex Edelman’s first show, Millennial – about very traumatic stock photos and young people - won an Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Newcomer, the first show by an American to do so since 1997.

The follow-up, Everything Handed to You - about identity and the availability of plug sockets in airports - was even more acclaimed: selling out its entire Edinburgh run and garnering the second-best reviews of any comedy show at the Festival. It was also filmed in its entirety for a special called Live at the BBC, which is currently available on Netflix.

Just For Us is what comes next. Nominated for the Barry award at Melbourne International Comedy Festival, earning the prestigious Herald Angel award as well as being nominated for the Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Show, it’s about gorillas that can-do sign language and tribalism. Come.

WHY? ‘Boasting technical flair and a precocious authority, Edelman’s comedy manages to capture the voice of Generation Y’ Guardian

‘I fondly imagined this was what it might have been like to watch Jerry Seinfeld when he was in his early 20s. There is no greater praise than that.’ ★★★★★ Mirror

‘Every story is a precision-engineered Rolls-Royce of a routine, perfectly timed and constructed, each morsel of information released just at the right moment’ Chortle

Suitable for ages 14+ years.

Simon Munnery: Alan Parker Urban Warrior Farewell Tour

Multi award-winning comedian Simon Munnery reprises his notorious alter ego, the bedsit anarchist Alan Parker Urban Warrior.

Once the most radical, now the only radical, Alan returns with the old gold, the old truths, and some new truths (based on the old truths).

For over 35 years, Munnery has performed around the world, experimenting with and innovating the stand-up form. In the 1990s, his Alan Parker: Urban Warrior character took the comedy circuit by storm, garnering Munnery his own BBC Radio 1 series, which Time Out London called ‘the funniest thing on Radio One’ and a residency on ITV’s Saturday Live. 1996 saw him collaborate with Graham Linehan and Stewart Lee for BBC2 show, London Shouting, in his Alan Parker guise, and the character also become a regular contributor to NME magazine.

Simon Munnery is a British Comedy Award nominee, Perrier Award nominee, Sony Radio Award winner and Chortle Award winner. He’s most recently appeared in Channel 4’s acclaimed Flowers, and will soon be seen in Will Sharpe’s Louis Wain movie biopic, co-starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Claire Foy.

WHY? ‘Gloriously inept radical anorak’ The Times

‘Marx, Engels and Sid Vicious would all have died laughing' The Guardian

‘Munnery’s parody of a punk rock anarcho snowflake, hand drawn with real love for its subject, returns to a world worse than any he could have imagined in his home decade of the 1980s' Stewart Lee

Presented by Show And Tell.

Age guidance 16+ years.

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
