Flo & Joan - Sweet Release

Multi-award winning musical comedy duo (and sisters) Flo & Joan are climbing out of their pits, armed with a piano and percussion section to bring you a brand new show of their critically acclaimed songs and comedy.

Their unique, sharp-tongued style has taken them around the world with multiple sell-out tours and appearances at the Just For Laughs Festival Montreal and Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Now they are back with their biggest ever UK national tour, poking around all the classic topics of the day: over-thinking, alien lovers and fringes.

As seen on Live at the Apollo (BBC2), The Royal Variety Performance (ITV), The Russell Howard Hour (Sky), Jonathan Ross’ Comedy Club (ITV), online with over 50 million views of their viral songs, in your personal nightmares, and in ‘Alive on Stage’, their own special available worldwide on Amazon Prime.

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)

‘Remarkable, tour de force one-man show’ ★★★★ The Daily Telegraph

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?

Age guidance 14+ years.
