Have you reached that certain age? Are you more likely to shake your rolling pin than your booty? Is there stuff you'd like to get off your saggy old chest? Then join us for a live grump fest. Jenny Eclair, self appointed form captain of grumpy old women hosts an orgy of middle aged mayhem, 90 minutes of theatrical HRT with not a thong in sight. Inspired by the ratings bursting BBC 2 series and best selling Grumpy Old Women handbook, the show is a celebration of the pre, peri and post menopausal female condition. Don't forget your bifocals. No heckling, but 'tutting' allowed. Be home in time for Desperate Housewives and to put a wash on. Marvellous.
Perrier nominee 2002.
Jimmy's been described as 'the hardest working man in comedy'. Which, let's face facts, is not that impressive. It's like being the 'Tallest Dwarf' or the 'Healthiest Glaswegian'. Really not that big a deal. Funny Business is Jimmy's brand new stand up show. Come for the witty and incisive musings on the human condition; stay for the dirty jokes. Running Time: Approximately 2 hours and 20 minutes (including 1 interval)
Join the multi-award winning star of Not Going Out and Would I Lie to You?

A brand new stand-up show about feeling bamboozled by the modern world. Will contain jokes about CGI, plugs and gang bangs. A heady mix of gags, anecdotes and the occasional exasperated plea to the sky. As seen on Ask Rhod Gilbert (BBC1) and as heard on The Unbelievable Truth (BBC Radio 4).

Stewart has devoted this show to his father. So dad - if you're up there? As for having kids himself he's decided he doesn't want any... anyone who wants some let him know and he'll drop them off. Oh he's just kidding of course, he has a beautiful daughter who he named after his mum, and in fact passive aggressive psycho turns five tomorrow. On an unrelated matter, Stewart likes what mechanics wear... overall.
There are more punchlines in a Tim Vine show than any other you'll have seen. Fact. It's wonderfully silly and inane - but incredibly funny.
The punslinger returns with new jokes, silly songs and twitchy dancing. Joke, joke, joke. Prop, prop, prop. Song, song, song. (Sorry, the laptop's jammed).

Warning: This show will contain wobbly props, one reference to a panda and a song about getting water in your ear after swimming. Running time: 1hr. Age 12+
