Lakin McCarthy presents
BRIDGET CHRISTIE : BECAUSE YOU DEMANDED IT
Multi-award winning Bridget Christie brings her critically acclaimed, sell-out show to town.
The people of the UK have voted to leave the EU, even though no-one had a plan for what would happen if it did. If you didn’t want to leave the EU, or you did, but now don’t, because you haven’t got any of the things you were promised, then this is absolutely the show for you. If you did want to leave the EU, and still do, then you will still find it funny, but for different reasons, as you witness the liberal female comedian’s exasperated and despairing meltdown.
‘The most electrifying comedy I’ve yet seen on the Fringe’ ***** Guardian
‘She’s pulled it off again with a wit and vim that is enjoyable as it is timely’ **** Times
‘Whatever your political views, this show is one you'd be foolish to miss’ **** Telegraph
Voted number 1 in the Guardian's top 10 comedy of 2016

Stuart Goldsmith – Compared to What

Tuesday 14th March 2017

Fresh from appearances on ‘Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central’ (Comedy Central), ‘As Yet Untitled’ (Dave) and a month of packed houses at the Edinburgh Fringe, Stuart Goldsmith presents a new hour of funny, not entirely about becoming a parent.
The host of the ‘Comedian’s Comedian Podcast’ (over 6 million downloads) finally shakes off an invigoratingly misspent youth. Finding himself uprooted from his adoptive city and press-ganged into a pastoral existence by a cunning girl, Stu considers the big questions and wonders: how much compromise is too much?
Stand-up star and podcast-guru Stu Goldsmith brings his multiple award-winning comedy to The Stand on 14th March. To whet your appetite he's giving away a free digital copy of his debut album "Princess Uncle Stu"... Just go to www.comedianscomedian.com/album for further instructions!

Tony Law: A Law Undo His-elf What Welcome

Sunday 26th March 2017

Multi award-winning comedian, Tony Law embarks on a UK tour with a brand new show of the inimitable surreal comedy-art that has made him one of the most celebrated live performers in the UK.
In A Law Undo His-elf What Welcome, Tony Law is closer than ever to nonsense nirvana. Behold the comedy event horizon. Without a hint of a joke, this powerful show has achieved a sort of comedy which aims at making no sense at all and yet, and yet, and yet it means everything. Every dog damned thing ever. Science called and they want their goal back. Law has burst the net. You will feel sick with awe. You will barf wonder.
‘This show is a code. The words are all jumbled up but when you put them in the right order the wormhole opens up. Nothing is the same anymore. You can't call this comedy. This isn't comedy… It's something else... It's ...OTHER.’ Anthony Johnston Law
