A Complete History of the Beatles… Sort of… A Faculty Lecture by George Firehorse.

To mark a full fifty years since the break up of the Beatles we’ve asked George Firehorse to dust off his entire history of the Fab Four which he will present in the form of a comedy lecture that includes slides, audio, magic and mayhem. It’s not peer reviewed and it’s not completely fact checked but it’s a LOT of fun.

George burst on to the comedy scene in 2008 with a unique blend, of nonsense, magic, mayhem and wit. Ever since George has been winning audiences over with a visual and quirky act executed by a likeable if somewhat peculiar performer.

POSTPONED-Frenchy
May 12 @ 6:30 pm

Known for his lanky frame, dirty jokes & pre-pubescent moustache, Frenchy only promises one thing from his comedy show – laughs. This ain’t a TED talk, this ain’t 60 Minutes, this is an odd-looking humanoid telling a bunch of dark jokes you shouldn’t laugh at, but do.

There may be some songs, there may be some awkward break-dancing and there may be a grown man imitating a pokemon who knows what you’ll get when you come to a Frenchy show.

For over half a decade Frenchy has been turning it up with his epic, one of a kind live shows. He writes and performs a brand new show every year, and each show is more ridiculous than the last.

A brilliant, off the cuff improviser – his ‘crowd work’ is some of the best in the world and always keeps the show feeling fresh & spontaneous.

With over a billion views on YouTube and Facebook combined, Frenchy may be known for his YouTube videos, but it’s on the stage where he really excels.

Edgy, Dirty & Absurd, this show will have you wondering if he is some sort of bogan mastermind, or simply a bird-shaped man who’s sniffed too much paint.

Crissy Rock: Live
Jun 4 @ 6:45 pm

Best known as one of the stars of ITV1’s hit series ‘Benidorm’ and a multi-award winner, Crissy is better known to her fans as one of the most outstanding and outrageous stand-up comedians of her generation. From her hilarious routines directed at useless partners (well, men in general) to her journey through the onset of middle age, Crissy’s non-stop blasts of comedy brilliance hit the right note every time.

You may of seen Crissy more recently on Lorraine, Loose Women, The Full Monty and as a semi-finalist on 5 Star’s Celebs on the Farm, but in 2020 she is hitting the road and coming to a venue near you for an evening guaranteed to have you rolling in the aisles with laughter!
