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.

It's Susan Calman's tenth year in comedy and she's back with a brand new show. You may have seen or heard her on shows like QI, HIGNFY, News Quiz, Listomania or Mock The Week, now you have the opportunity to see her in person, life-size if you will. For information, Susan is taller than a borrower but shorter than the average thirteen-year-old child. The show? Well she's ready to create a storm, to set the record straight, to give it to the man (whoever he is.) Incidentally she would also like to be Batman. Ninety minutes of comedy that you will enjoy if you're over 16, like what she does, and won't be so drunk that she has to throw you out. Sounds like a terrible personal ad doesn't it? She also likes fine wine, kittens and walks along the beach. Seriously. It's going to be epic.
