The people of the UK have voted to leave the EU, even though no-one had a plan for what would happen if it did. If you didn't want to leave the EU, or you did, but now don't, because you haven't got any of the things you were promised, then this is absolutely the show for you. If you did want to leave the EU, and still do, then you will still find it funny, but for different reasons, as you witness the liberal female comedian's exasperated and despairing meltdown.
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).
A brand new stand up show for 2017 from the comedian you've seen on The Royal Variety Performance, Celebrity Juice, Hebburn, Live At The Apollo and various newspapers when he was wrongly arrested in a hotel in his underpants.
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.
The Geordie stand-up.
tar of Never Mind The Buzzcocks and 8 Out Of 10 Cats, and winner of the 2008 Edinburgh Comedy Award, David O'Doherty's humour fits into the slightly nerdish, misfit worldview increasingly adopted by a certain breed of comic; delicate, sweet and thought-provoking rather than aggressive and in-your face.
David O'Doherty - the Aldi Bubl?, the Ryanair Enya - is delighted to present a brand new show of talking and songs played on a crappy keyboard from 1986.
Star of We Are Klang (BBC3) and well known as Mr Gilbert, Head of Sixth Form in The Inbetweeners (E4), Greg Davies performs his hotly anticipated stand-up show Firing Cheeseballs at a Dog. If.comedy Award nominated comedian, Greg has performed on numerous TV Shows including: '8 Out Of 10 Cats' (Channel 4), 'Mock the Week' (BBC Two), 'Never Mind The Buzzcocks' (BBC Two).
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.
Jack's always wanted to be a real man, like the ones in the audience at Top Gear, but unfortunately he likes Smirnoff Ice and looks wrong with his shirt off. Jack has firmly established himself as one of the country's most exciting and successful comedy talents, a status cemented by his People's Choice Award for the King of Comedy at the 2012, 2013 & 2014 British Comedy Awards. He cut his teeth at the Edinburgh Fringe, taking up four sell out shows over three consecutive years and earning an Edinburgh Comedy Award nomination in the process with his debut show. Jack has since gone on to host Live At The Apollo and the Royal Variety Performance, as well as perform stand-up at the internationally prestigious Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Canada.
Brand new show ?At Large' will again see Jack perform in some of the largest venues in the land, bringing his unique brand of high-intensity silliness to thousands of fans.

John Bishop is now one of the most in-demand acts on the comedy circuit. His engaging brand of observational humour mines his varied and colourful life experience, from being a Dad to cycling round the world and from a successful corporate career to being a club doorman.
The British Comedy Award nominee and star of Live At The Apollo and 8 Out Of 10 Cats is embarking on a nationwide tour to complain about the state of the world and offer no solutions. Since his last show he has become a husband and father, seen the UK vote to leave the EU and watched the rise of Donald Trump, all of which leaves him asking one question, why does it seem that no one else alive can correctly load a dishwasher? Come and see what Jon Richardson can do with words when he has more than thirty seconds to work with. Or should that be "with which to work"?
Jonathan Pie is a respected News reporter for a respected News broadcaster but he has a problem. He has several problems. He hates his job. He hates his colleagues. But mainly he hates the f**king News. Join him for this live show where he hilariously reveals the truth behind recent News events both home and abroad. He'll also be discussing his own meteoric rise to mediocrity...and one imagines he'll be venting plenty of spleen in the process.
Nominee: Foster's Edinburgh Comedy Awards - Best Show 2015
Multi award-winning comic/activist Mark Thomas performed his first gigs in The Red Shed in Wakefield, a 47-foot-long wooden hut that doubles up as a Labour Club. Three decades later he returns to celebrate its 50th birthday, entwining the story of his political coming of age with the tale of the people who inspired him. The struggle for hope and survival in a shed, a story of strikes, fights, dinner ladies and beer; friendship, love, memory and above all belief. Theatre, stand-up, journalism, activism and a small amount of help from the audience.
A professional stand-up since 1997, Micky Flanagan draws on his East End background as he ruthlessly deconstructs the Cockney myth with razor-sharp observational wit. He tells a comic tale of a working class upbringing, where alphabetti spaghetti is a luxury and a bottle of black tower the height of sophistication. Micky's unique brand of intelligent humour appeals to men and women equally, as he bemoans the lot of modern man in pursuit of the perfect idle day, and celebrates being turned away from a night club because his feet are killing him.
Milton Jones is renowned for his string of surreal and unusual one-liners. On stage, hair gelled in 360 different directions, clothes half-spaceman, half '70s Bhs, he was Perrier Finalist of 1997 and Best Newcomer in 1996. His delivery is part weirdo, part childish, part punch drunk.
Reginald D Hunter's work is often brutally honest, frequently controversial but always meticulously measured and thought out. He is one of the few performers to have been nominated for the highly coveted main Perrier Award in three consecutive years and has become a well-known face on primetime television shows such as Live At The Apollo and QI and is a frequent guest on Have I Got News For You.
Star of BBC2's Mock the Week, host f his own BBC 6 Music radio show, and nominated for the Edinburgh Festival if.comeddie Award 2006, Russell Howard's infectious, charming and uniquely banter-filled style of stand-up has made him a red hot comedy property. He is quite literally the new golden boy of comedy and is hugely in demand wherever he goes.
Time Out comedy award winner and Perrier Award Nominee.
Every three years the comedian Sean Lock writes and tours a new stand-up show. Well he's only gone and done it again! What's he like? Come and see what he's blithering on about this time.
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.
Canadian by birth with an Irish mother and a Trinidadian father, Tony Law has something to say on almost everything to say on almost everything from retarded Nazis and street crime to the state of the British government and tractors!
In A Law Undo His-elf What Welcome, Tony Law is closer than ever to nonsense nirvana. Behold the comedy event horizon. Without a hint of a joke, this powerful show has achieved a sort of comedy which aims at making no sense at all and yet, and yet, and yet it means everything. Every dog damned thing ever. Science called and they want their goal back. Law has burst the net. You will feel sick with awe. You will barf with wonder.
