Saturday 27 July: Sarah Millican (SOLD OUT!)

When Sarah Millican was a bairn, she wouldn’t say boo to a goose. Quiet at school, not many friends, no boobs til she was 16. Now? NOW she is loud, with good friends, a cracking rack and goose booing all over the shop.

In Late Bloomer, Sarah’s brand-new stand-up show, she explores how one became the other. Plus, lots of stuff about dinners and lady gardens. Come along, laugh at her, with her, beside her.

Saturday 3 August, 7pm & 9:30pm: Jimmy Carr (LIMITED AVAILABILITY)

If you like fast-paced, edgy one-liners then get ready to be happy. Jimmy Carr is going back on tour with his brand-new show ‘Jimmy Carr: Laughs Funny’.

Jimmy tells jokes, and jokes are like magnets.
Jokes attract people, but they can also repel.
Some people are repelled by Jimmy’s dark brand of comedy. This show is not for them.
But if it’s the kind of thing you like, then this is the kind of thing you’ll like.

‘Jimmy Carr: Laughs Funny’ will be 90 minutes of solid jokes, no interval.
There will be two shows a night, starting at 7pm and 9.30pm, why not book a table somewhere before or after and make the most of the night out.

Thursday 8 August: Joe Pasquale

Joe Pasquale has been showing off on stage for over 40 years and he’s bringing his favourite things for another airing to show that things have never been normal…If you have ever wondered why chicken breasts don’t have nipples? Then this show is for you…

This show includes a Q&A

Friday 30 August: Jim Davidson

Join Britain’s best-loved funny man on his marathon swim as he resists the pull of the under-current of radical sensibilities of the woke minority.

Slap on the Goose fat, battle through the dark and murky woke infested waters and join him for another evening of rip-roaring grown-up comedy, as Jim Davidson OBE continues to play to capacity audiences year after year.

Saturday 9 November: Ben Elton

Following the huge success of Ben Elton’s critically acclaimed sold-out UK tour in 2019, which marked his return to live comedy after a fifteen-year hiatus, the undisputed godfather of modern stand-up is going back on the road with his new show – Authentic Stupidity.

Ben says ’Since my last live tour a whole new existential threat has emerged to threaten humanity! Apparently, Artificial Intelligence is going to destroy us all! Well, I reckon our real problem isn’t Artificial Intelligence it’s good old-fashioned Authentic Stupidity! Forget AI! It’s AS we need to be worrying about!’

Ben Elton first exploded into the national consciousness back in the 1980’s hosting Channel 4’s ground breaking Saturday Live and he’s been setting the standard for gag filled, taboo busting, tonsil rattling, mind expanding stand-up comedy ever since!

Thursday 13 & 14 February: John Bishop (LIMITED AVAILABILITY)

Comedy superstar John Bishop is adding extra dates to his ‘Back At It’ UK and Ireland stand-up tour following phenomenal demand for tickets.

After two years spent TV presenting, stage acting, podcast hosting, dog walking and decorating the spare room, John is back doing the thing he loves most; standing on stage and making people laugh.

John said: “I’m delighted to be adding these additional dates to my ‘Back At It’ tour. The work in progress shows started about 10 days ago – the juices are flowing again and the response from the audiences has been incredible. I’m looking forward to seeing many more of you out there on the road.”

Friday 23 May: Henning Wehn

Award-deserving German Comedy Ambassador Henning Wehn takes an unbiased look at climate change, a topic sure to delight audiences and no surprise. After all, everyone loves talking about the weather. Rain or shine, all will be fine. Or maybe it won’t. Who knows?! Come along. Or else.

“Wehn has given us an understanding of German quirks” King Charles III
“As subtle as Schumacher on Battiston” Some bloke on Twitter

Thursday 17 July: Rhod Gilbert

When life gives Rhod lemons…
In his last show ‘The Book of John’, Rhod was dealing with some pretty pungent life citrus, and an idiot called John. Little did he know that things were about to turn even more sour… But Rhod’s not bitter; he’s bouncing back and feeling remarkably zesty.
Hilariously dark, passionate and way too personal, this is classic Gilbert, squeezing every last drop out of life’s latest curveballs…with a little help from an old adversary.

“DARKLY HILARIOUS. IT’S GOOD TO HAVE HIM BACK” Times
“HILARIOUS TOUR-DE-FORCE” Telegraph
“VOLCANIC, HIGH-OCTANE HUMOUR. UPROARIOUSLY FUNNY” Guardian
“WITHOUT DOUBT ONE OF THE BEST COMEDIANS ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD” Time Out
