Everyone’s favourite ‘guilty pleasure’ (Daily Record), stand-up comedy star, Stephen Bailey is back on tour with his brand-new show Our Kid – a story full of Northern warmth, some working-class guilt and a bit of blue.

2018 has been an exciting year for Stephen.

John-Luke Roberts: All I Wanna Do Is [FX: GUNSHOTS]

One of the Edinburgh Fringe's most celebrated talents of recent times sets out on his first full national tour.

John-Luke Roberts' show this year was a complete sell-out run and one of the most talked about shows of the festival: a dizzying avant-garde ride through the mind of a gifted comic-philosopher. One with a blue moustache. Who thinks far more about the Spice Girls than anyone should. A masterclass in prop, clown, costume and Mel C-themed comedy.

And that's all we can tell you in the brochure, because his stupid title takes up the rest of the allotted space.

Suitable for ages 16+ years.

Alfie Brown: Lunatic

Fresh from a complete sell out run at the Edinburgh Festival, Alfie Brown is going on his first UK Tour and he remains charming and disgusting.

His new show is about identity politics, trying to be a good father in a horrible world and being responsibly horny in the wake of wide-spread male sex crimes. He provides no answers, only questions. Society's new-found fondness for moral certainty is the subject of a search and destroy mission by Brown. They were wrong all along, it turns out if you believe in something, you’ll fall for anything.

Lou Sanders: Shame Pig

Gabrielle once sang ‘dreams can come true’ and that’s lovely, but nothing to do with this show.

After sell-out, critically acclaimed runs at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and London, with both runs extended to meet high demand, Lou Sanders is back with a national tour. She brings stabby step mothers, alcohol issues and an unusual sexual encounter in LA with her.

This show is all about shame. Sanders has met some pigs – and been a mucky little pig herself – and now she’s rolling around in her own filth for your delight.

As seen and heard on 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown, Hypothetical, Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled, The Russell Howard Hour, Comic Relief and Radio 4’s Unbelievable Truth.

Originally brought together by a passion for the same football team, the pair are travelling the UK uniting people of every faith and none for an evening of laughter.

In this highly anticipated ‘debut’ show, the award winning, critically acclaimed comedian takes us from his childhood growing up on the mean streets of Hampstead Village, to his adulthood as a failed doctor, inept parent and fairly rubbish Jew.

Inspired by the mostly alarming state of the world his children are growing up in, and a genuine, urgent desire to do something about it, this show is about empathy. 99 percent of the world's population is made up of other people: why can't we understand them? As scrawny and impassioned as ever, one of the UK's most beloved and thinnest acts offers some suggestions, with his usual notoriously high joke-and-rant-per-minute rate.

Why Mummy Doesn’t Give A **** - An Evening with Gill Sims

Author of online sensation Peter and Jane, Gill Sims is the number one best-selling author behind Why Mummy Drinks, its follow up Why Mummy Swears and the recently announced Why Mummy Doesn't Give a...

Join Gill as she is interviewed about her blog, books, character and much more! There will be readings from her books and also a chance to ask Gill questions from the audience. Books will be available to purchase and sign as well.

Why Mummy Drinks spent over six months in the Sunday Times bestsellers Top Ten and was the number one bestselling debut hardback novel of 2017. Gill's second book Why Mummy Swears, published in early 2018, was a Number One Sunday Times bestseller for seven consecutive weeks and has spent a total of 18 weeks in the Top Ten. Since publication of her first book just over a year ago Gill has sold over half a million books.

Mummy has an idea... when she can get away from all the other ideas, that the world is full of mums who go to advanced yoga classes, get tiddly on a half glass of white wine, and attend polite book clubs.

Mummy does not want to go quietly into that good night, of women with sensible haircuts who live only for their family and stand in the playground trying to trump each other by bragging about their offspring's academic achievements, extracurricular activities, and their latest overseas holidays.

Instead, she clutches a large and full glass of wine, muttering 'FML' over and over again, until she remembers that great idea...
