Andrew Lawrence and Saskia Preston

Andrew Lawrence: The Happy Accident Tour

As seen on Live at the Apollo and more recently The Outcast Comic on Sky Arts, double Edinburgh Comedy Award nominated comedian Andrew Lawrence works up a brand new show, joking about the horrors of parenthood and poking fun at Liberal pretentions. It’ll be funny, distinctive and unapologetically non-PC.

'Andrew Lawrence is superbly intelligent, highly articulate and deeply sour' (The Spectator)

Paul McCaffrey and Angela Barnes

Paul McCaffrey: Suburban Legend

Star of Impractical Jokers, Russell Howard’s Good News, and Stand Up Central, McCaffrey has performed to thousands of people in the last 12 months, supporting Sean Lock and Rob Beckett on their UK tours and is one of the most sought after Headline acts in the country in his own right.

‘Born to be a Comic’ (The Scotsman)


Robert White and Edd Hedges

Robert White: InstruMENTAL

Malcolm Hardee award-winning gay autistic comedian adopts new stance. For the first time combining his musical composition talents with his well-honed comedy chops, Robert presents a fully orchestrated comedy opera of unbelievable, but true, misadventures and misfortune. A bonkers yarn presented with a Mozart spirit, and some wrong notes.

★★★★ ‘Pitch-perfect delivery…just brilliant’ (Chortle)

★★★★ ‘Robert White tries hard - and spectacularly succeeds’ (Three weeks)

★★★★  ‘Jaw-dropping riot’ (The List)

Felicity Ward and Masud Milas

Felicity Ward: 50% More Likely To Die

In 2015 Felicity Ward wrote a show about mental illness and her bumhole (IBS). Much to her surprise more people saw it than her immediate family and a guy called Gavin. At the Edinburgh Festival Fringe it was the third-best reviewed comedy show (out of 3000 shows!). Always one to flog a dead horse, she is writing another show about mental illness called: 50% More Likely to Die.

Mark Dolan and Red Richardson

Mark Dolan: Life Hacks

Do you find life complicated? Is most of your day taken up with trying to remember passwords, looking for somewhere to charge your iPhone, and unsubscribing from adult websites, some of which involve men in period costume? Well you’re not alone and Mark Dolan comes to your rescue with Life Hacks, a hilarious and highly personal new stand-up show. There are no big promises here, except that this show will change your life, improve your looks and make your hair shiny, but not greasy. Don’t miss!

Rob Broderick and Elf Lyons

Rob Broderick: The Musical in My Mind

Rob Broderick, Abandoman's freestyling frontman, is bringing his new solo show. A beautiful combination of hip-hop and animation; the show is two parts Drake, one part Disney. With poetic flourish, Rob dances between playing the parts of introspective rapper, pop culture commentator and all-out musical surrealist.

'Flight of the Conchords meets 8 Mile' (Chortle)


Andy Cutting

Many of his tunes have been purloined along the way: some considered contemporary classics on the folk scene. There are few melodeon players who put so much feeling into their playing, whether it be a set of dance tunes, or accompaniment to a slow English ballad.

Bridget Christie and Josh Howie: Pre-Edinburgh Comedy Festival

Plus the unique opportunity to enjoy a drink on the ship’s Main Deck during the interval (cash only), with amazing views of the Thames as the sun sets over London.

Bridget Christie: Mortal - Work in progress

Brand new work in progress show from the stupid idiot and multi award-winning stand-up Bridget Christie. Bridget is going to die, but what will she leave behind? This and many other things will be discussed, including bigots, the Tories, aging, water massages, magic eyelift stickers and legacies.
