Stuart Goldsmith - End Of

Stu's back with a comic odyssey on how it works out in the end, and whether anyone cares.

Intelligent stand-up comedy for everybody, but of particular interest to people over thirty who've lost touch with all their old friends and can't eat just one pain au chocolat.

Featuring ultimates, absolutes and surprisingly few conclusions.

Host of The Comedian’s Comedian Podcast (10 million downloads) and as seen on Dave's As Yet Untitled and Comedy Central's Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central.

WHY? 'Truly a comedy masterclass... endlessly inventive' The List

Gyles Brandreth - Break a Leg!

They say all political careers end in tears.

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

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

‘Total joy’ ★★★★★ Scotsman

Suitable for ages 11+ years.

Steve Bugeja - Almost

The comedian comes to Norden Farm following three critically acclaimed shows and direct from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. He’s hit the road for his third and largest UK tour.

Steve Bugeja was voted “most likely to be forgotten” at school (the reunion was in February, apparently).

To prove his former classmates wrong, he hits the road for his third and largest UK tour to date with Almost, following three critically-acclaimed shows and direct from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Almost sees Steve trapped on a 13-hour flight when he receives a text that flips his entire world upside down, leading him to contemplate issues of great importance. Is finding “the one” possible? Can we trust the pharmaceutical industry? And why are Japanese toilets so much better than ours?

Since winning the BBC New Comedy Award, Steve has appeared on shows including Love Island: Aftersun (ITV2), Russell Howard’s Good News (Comedy Central) and Top Tens (BBC3). Making a name for himself internationally, Steve has been invited to perform at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival twice, appearing on ABCTV’s Opening Night Comedy Allstars Supershow and twice on Comedy Up Late. Also a prolific writer, Steve was on the writing team for The Russell Howard Hour and has contributed material for shows including Mock the Week and The Now Show.

‘Drum tight, as if polished by a sitcom writers’ room to cram as many jokes in as humanly possible’ Chortle

‘An eye for comic detail that’s all his own’ Guardian

‘Plentiful jokes and compelling storytelling’ Scotsman
