Stand Spotlight

Wednesday 1st March 2017

For each Stand Spotlight we invite some of the best up and coming comedians to shine a light on a different topic, tying in with our charity theme. Be the first to see this brand new material – and your ticket money goes to a good cause!
This show will centre on the topic ‘Sex’. Ticket money will be donated to the Health Opportunities Team , a local independent charity committed to improving the social, emotional and sexual wellbeing of young people in Edinburgh. They work across the south of the city in schools, community centres, out on the streets and run Drop-Ins.
Please join us to support brand new comedy from the stars of tomorrow and raise money for their vital work!
With Izzy Moulder, Donald Alexander, Paul McDaniel, Devin Wallace, Stuart McPherson and host Rachel Jackson!
To ensure the maximum amount of money reaches the charity, we are not taking advance payments for this show. Tickets are £5 and can be reserved by calling our Box Office on 0131 558 7272.

Larry Dean: Farcissist

Sunday 19th March 2017

After an incredible year in which he performed at Edinburgh, Melbourne, Sydney and Perth Comedy Festivals, appeared on Live From The BBC and Comedy Central’s Live From The Comedy Store, award-winning comedian Larry Dean embarks on his debut UK tour.
Off the back of a break-up and facing the introspection that such a change brings, Larry is beginning to think about what it means to be him. People keep telling him he’s changed, but he’s not quite sure whether that’s a good or bad thing. Who was he before? Expect masterful storytelling and tomfoolery from this self-proclaimed ‘bender’ as he steps out by himself and tries to work out just exactly who that is.
