Publican. Politician. Other thing beginning with P. Philosopher, yeah, that. The nation's critically acclaimed bar-based-braveheart, Al Murray - The Pub Landlord embarks on a common sense crusade to re-Great Britain in his brand new show. We live in troubling times. Europe.

The stage has always been my first love. Let me put that another way. I have never done anything like this before in my life. However, to travel from town to town addressing a fabulous gathering of like-minded chums each night seems to me exactly what Shakespeare would have done had not the hefty rent at The Globe kept him in London. As a consequence, William Shakespeare toured about as frequently as Kate Bush. Well not me. I own very few theatres anymore and so I am now totally free to charge about here and there wowing the folks with my anecdotal back catalogue, games involving sausages and impressive six octave range.

Henning is The German Comedy Ambassador in The United Kingdom. This is not the easiest of jobs because the Germans allegedly do not have a sense of humour. Henning does not find that funny.
After his last show tackled those well-known staples of light entertainment that are the British obsession with home ownership and the self-serving nature of most fundraising efforts, this time Henning's having an unbiased look at immigration. He also wonders, if, generally speaking, people are competent. Luckily in his case this doesn't matter as either he's funny or he lives up to a national stereotype. It's a win-win situation.
Perrier Nominee and the hottest comic at the Edinburgh Fringe at 100 per cent sell-out 1998-2003 (and consistently the fastest selling comedian). With no two shows alike, this is unpredictable, unmatchable comedy at its best.

After more than 100 dates on the road in 2016 with his best-reviewed show to date, I'm Not Here, and a similarly marathon effort with the previous tour, Mark Watson is amazed to find there are STILL some areas of the country he's not visited much, and some towns that have been neglected altogether. It's hard to be everywhere at once, so he's narrowed it down to a sensible plan: for the next tour, Watson will only visit places beginning with M or W, his initials ? as they've already shown a commitment by having those names in the first place.

He's married, has two kids, a dog and an eye-watering mortgage, (is in debt) in these times of austerity and uncertainty, but remains resolute that a career in unpredictable world of comedy was absolutely the right way to go. (It's far too late to try something else now.) Rob takes this trademark comedic storytelling to a career high in this full length show, as he leads us on an irresistibly hilarious journey of enforced introspection, that has taught him to relinquish any attempts to control his life and to face down literally one of the most awkward situations you're ever likely to hear about. Most definitely a middle-aged bloke Rob happily holds his hands up as being about as 'un-sexy' as it's possible to be in terms of broad brush 'Key Marketing Demographics', but as a stand-up, he is in the form of his life.
Wild and crazy comedian.
Sara has starred on BBC's Twenty Twelve, Never Mind the Buzzcocks, Live at the Apollo, C4's Stand Up for the Week and Live at the Comedy Store on Comedy Central. Despite all this, she cannot be absolutely sure that she exists.
After publishing a book exploring the evolution of the female body, Sara now considers further issues - will pornography lead to our extinction? Are humans naturally bad? How do we become better? Do we really have to die? and gulp, should she have a baby? As always Sara is honest and unflinching as she expounds on sexuality, empathy, art, God and pubic hair. If that sounds a bit weighty, there will also be stuff about selfies, glow worms and RuPaul's Drag Race. Also, and this should be obvious, Slytherins are absolutely unwelcome.
