Shappi Khorsandi - Mistress and Misfit

Thursday 22nd February 2018

Shappi presents England's unsung heroine, Emma Hamilton. For too many years she has been known as just ‘Nelson's mistress', a bit of a harlot. (You get ONE job in a brothel and bang goes your reputation.) Women's lib wasn't a 'thing' in Georgian times, Emma moved mountains to haul herself from 'scullery maid' to 'Lady Hamilton'. Yes, she occasionally danced on tables naked to get ahead in life, but who hasn't? As a fellow naked dancer on tables, Shappi is inspired by Emma, although she never wants hair big enough to house mice in.

Sun 4th March 2018

Join the star of Not the Nine o'clock News, Smith & Jones and Three Men In A Boat as he airs stories, anecdotes, reminiscences and outright lies – from forty years of travelling - down rivers and up mountains, into Africa, out of India, and across the arid wastes of the BBC canteen.

Shazia Mirza -The Truth is so 80s

Tuesday 8th May 2018

Following her critically acclaimed 2016 sell-out international tour, The Kardashians Made Me Do It, Shazia's new show is about lies, lies and more lies; the truth is so 1980s.

Lies, truth, nudity and the periodic table: these things hold the key to the future. What do you wear? Where do you go? And will they let you in? You can do what you like, just don't wear more than dental floss on a French beach.

Patrick Monahan

Sunday 20th May 2018

Brand new stand up show from multi award winning Patrick Monahan and inspired by his Irish/Iranian/Teeside teens in the 90's.

Identity cards, ‘Cool Britannia’, Drink and drugs and rock ‘n’ roll’ were some of the trademarks of the 1990's but for the Teetotal and drug free Monahan it was ‘cake and tea and R ‘n’ B!’ 

‘His tales of being an immigrant to Britain are thought-provoking yet hilarious, he loves his audience and they love him back.  Patrick is a Fringe Legend and it’s easy to see why.   **** Mirror

He really hits the mark…great depth’ BroadwayBaby ****
