BOOK TICKETS

After reaching the final of Britain’s Got Talent 2020, Nabil Abdulrashid brings his brand-new stand-up show on tour.

From growing up under military rule in northern Nigeria to falling into legal trouble as a teenager in south London, join Nabil as he recollects the remarkable, chaotic and sometimes tragic (but always hilarious) story of his life so far.

Expect a night of “unapologetically funny” (Telegraph) stand-up as Nabil charts his journey from humble beginnings (and middles) to one of UK comedy’s most talked about rising stars.

He’s the star by a wide margin… animated by a sardonic intelligence and sharp eye for the absurdities of racial discourse

Crissy Rock: Live
Sep 9 @ 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 2021 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!

HELP I SEXTED MY BOSS
Sep 29 @ 7:30 pm

Life is full of personal calamities. Thankfully, William Hanson and Jordan North are here to help you navigate the daily struggles of modern life. Well, most of the time… William and Jordan’s lives couldn’t be more different. One’s more Buckingham Palace, the other’s more Crystal Palace. But that doesn’t stop them sharing very different advice on today’s everyday problems. Whatever the conundrum, they’re here to help!

Jordan North is a radio presenter on a certain national radio station. In his spare time he works as a professional northerner in London, the big city. He can be heard, but not always understood, on a certain national radio station between 10:30 and 13:00 every Friday, Saturday and Sunday. His years of practice in the industry mean that he is now very good at talking for large periods of time. Those words are often more easily relatable than those spoken by his opposite number.

William Hanson teaches etiquette. Yes, really. That’s actually a job. He travels the world teaching people how to behave at every possible social or diplomatic occasion. From royal families to leading business people to feral TV personalities, William has refined them all. Now his biggest challenge comes in the form of his good friend Jordan North

Luisa Omielan: God is a Woman
Sep 30 @ 7:00 pm

Lee Martin for Gag Reflex presents…

Luisa Omielan: God is a Woman

 

Luisa Omielan is the most famous female British comedian you’ve never heard of. She is the first British Comedian to ever receive a BAFTA Breakthrough Award for comedy.

 

She has had 3 ground-breaking hit shows. First, she asked “What Would Beyoncé Do?! ” (sell out across the UK and Australia, is what she would do!), then she asked “Am I Right Ladies?!” and her thigh gap joke went viral with over 45 million views. Then she turned to Politics and got a show on the BBC titled “Politics for Bitches”. So the next logical step is to religion!

 

At a time when it feels like the world is about to be set on fire and we’re asking ourselves why it’s all going so horribly wrong and what can we do to fix it? Luisa’s upcoming show GOD IS A WOMAN couldn’t come at a more important time. Expect Mary Magdalene, dick jokes and a giant Bernese mountain dog.

 

Doors at 7pm. Show start at 8pm.

FERN BRADY: BRAIN
Feb 4 @ 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm

FERN BRADY: BRAIN

Following a sold out tour across Europe and Australia in 2019 and her most recent BBC stand up special Power & Chaos, Fern Brady brings her fifth solo show Brain on a nationwide tour.

As seen on Live at the Apollo, Frankie Boyle’s New World Order, Roast Battle, Russell Howard, Jonathan Ross’ Comedy Club. As heard on BBC Sound’s Wheel of Misfortune podcast, the News Quiz and the Now Show.

Scotsman – “She’s absolutely fearless – there’s nowhere she won’t go and nothing she won’t say on stage and she’ll switch from snarling and menacing to sweet and girlish in an instant. It’s a killer combination”

Evening Standard****-  She is distinctively acerbic and scathing but, most importantly, hugely entertaining too.

 

Doors 8PM. Start 8:30PM
