George Egg - DIY Chef
Direct from Total Sell Outs at the Gilded Balloon, Edinburgh Fringe 2017 and Brighton Fringe 2017, and following sell out Edinburgh Fringe runs in 2015 and 2016 plus a sell-out UK tour, award winning* comedian George Egg (the ‘Anarchist Cook’) returns with a BRAND NEW SHOW demonstrating more live cooking and laugh-out-loud comedy.
In ‘GEORGE EGG: DIY CHEF’ a health scare sees George banned him from the family kitchen, but relocated to the garden shed his imagination and resourcefulness lead him to build an improvised kitchen there instead. During an inspiring and inventive evening of stand-up, live cooking and comedy lecture, George prepares a breakfast, a lunch and a dinner using the most unconventional of methods.
It’s funny, inspiring and absurd in equal measure. Expect power tools, gardening equipment and office supplies to be re-purposed and abused. Expect lots of laughs. Expect to learn something new. And you get to taste the food at the end.**

Howard Read - Big Howard & Little Howard: Man and Boy.
The world’s first human/cartoon double act, Big Howard Little Howard, bring you Man & Boy. Human Big Howard feels he and his cartoon boy double-act partner are growing apart. He’s now a dad, a breadwinner, and a role model to real children, and Little Howard has remained six-years-old and still thinks that farts are funny.
They have one night to change their ways, come together or part forever, and you happen to be coming to the show on that night.
Big Howard Little Howard take on Trump, Racism, chicken-hate and the thorny issue of whether farts can predict the future.
Join Big Howard and Little Howard for songs, animation, a filthy pigeon and possibly the most thoroughly ridiculous ear worm ever composed.
You won’t find another act on the circuit who can do live interactive, animated comedy as well as this unique double act (But if you do, please tell them where; they’re very lonely!)

Gyles Brandreth comes to the Forum with his brand new show celebrating all things theatrical. Be among the first to see it.
They say all political careers end in tears. In Gyles Brandreth's case it's tears of laughter as the actor, author, One Show reporter, former MP and government whip comes to Northallerton with his new one-man show BREAK A LEG! - a celebration of all things theatrical. This is Brandreth unleashed on the stars he's known and the theatre stories that have made him laugh – and, occasionally, cry. Without hesitation or repetition (and just a touch of deviation).
Just a Minute regular Gyles delivers a dazzling afternoon of wit, wisdom, high drama, low comedy, and hilarious name-dropping.
Robin Ince's Chaos of Delight
The co-star of the Rose D'Or award winning 'The Infinite Monkey Cage and author of How to Build a Universe (part 1) with Professor Brian Cox is back on the road with an artist's manifesto of delight and curiosity.
Robin Ince mashes up the two cultures of art and science in this celebration of the human mind from Bohemians to black holes, Dali to DNA, another of his stand up sort of lectures.
‘The Ince brain is like a black hole in a galaxy of knowledge. When it collides with another black hole – say the Fringe – the energy waves that are produced are perceived, by us, as “shows”. **** The Scotsman
