Al Murray is the pub landlord who holds forth on all manner of topics, waxing wide about the state of the world with all the skewed logic of a bar room philosopher. Anyone who has spent even the smallest amount of time in a pub will recognise these immaculate observations of British pub culture.
Comedian, actor and permanent resident on 'QI'.
Following the sellout success of his long-awaited return to stand up, Alan Davies' previews his highly anticipated follow-up show, Little Victories. Much lauded as resident dunderhead on QI or the charming but reticent crime solver Jonathan Creek, Davies virtuosic story-telling and whip-smart funny bones combine to make this a show not to be missed. Age 15+
British Comedy Award winning and BAFTA nominated duo Cardinal Burns are hitting the road. Following their second series on Channel 4, the duo are ready to unleash a torrent of never-before-seen characters and familiar faces from the series all over your lovely town. Previous live shows have sold out in London, Edinburgh and Melbourne, and now the boys are ready to sell out all over again with their absurd, anarchic and unpredictable tapas of character comedy. Age 16+
Since appearing on the comedy circuit in 2009, Chris has experienced a meteoric rise to the top. He has previously appeared on 8 Out of 10 Cats (Channel 4), Show and Tell (E4), Comedy Rocks (ITV1) and Russell Howard's Good News (BBC3), and is soon to be seen on Celebrity Juice (ITV2), Argumental (Dave) and Richard Bacon's Beer and Pizza Club (ITV4).
Chris embarks on a brand new tour for 2013/2014. Taking his brush with on air censorship as a jumping-off point to muse on life, mistakes, expectation and offense, he examines what happens when you say the wrong thing in the wrong place at the wrong time.
The wonderfully innovative comedy mind behind Modern Life Is Goodish (Dave TV), Are You Dave Gorman? and Googlewhack Adventure is back with a brand new live show that promises more of his unique blend of stand-up comedy and visual story-telling as Dave Gorman Gets Straight To The Point... (The PowerPoint). Yes. That's right. It's a PowerPoint presentation. We know what you're thinking. But don't worry... as this all-new show follows the phenomenal success of his critically-acclaimed UK Tour, Dave Gorman's Powerpoint Presentation, which included a sold-out 5-night run at London's Southbank Centre, we think you're in pretty safe (and funny) hands. You won't need to take notes and you almost certainly won't be tested on it later.
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.
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 more than a decade in Britain, the German Comedy Ambassador has 'groan' to like puns.... though he still couldn't eat a whole one. As Henning's assimilation is not yet complete he hasn't lost his sense of Westphalian wonderment at the foibles of British society. Why does everybody want to be owned by a house? What's wrong with having the Euro? And why hold society and government responsible for personal underachievement? You've only got yourself to blame for not being born into a better social class. Expect an evening-long crash course in personal accountability and have a right old laugh at the same time! Wunderbar!
