ANDY PARSONS – HEALNG THE NATION
‘Cracking adlibbing…a joke-rich rallying call for a better Britain’ THE GUARDIAN
'Coruscating live performer specialising in lacerating topical gags' THE INDEPENDENT
“It was the 24th June 2016 and I found myself in a supermarket contemplating a meal deal. I only wanted a sandwich and I only needed a sandwich but given that I could get a snack and a drink for only 5p more it seemed financially irresponsible not to. It was the day after the Referendum, and I’d spent so long confused about what was happening to my country that I was in a rush as I took my three items to the lad on the till. He scanned the first two items no problem but the third item he couldn’t get to scan at all. I thought this is going to be a nightmare – there was a queue building up and he looked like he was going to call the supervisor. Then to his credit, he tried to scan it one more time, it wouldn’t scan – so he went ‘bip’ himself and chucked it through. And it was at that moment I thought ‘oh we’ll be alright as a country we will’.
And we will be alright. Trust me. I’m not a politician.”
As seen on Mock the Week, Live at the Apollo, Q.I. etc. - and repeated on Dave.

STRICTLY OVER 18S ONLY
Big name comedy at the Forum with author and comedian Mark Watson. Cluster-bombed with yoghurt on 'Taskmaster', half-killed on 'Bear Grylls' Celebrity Island', Watson returns to what he's best at: being indoors.
Inspired by the mostly alarming state of the world his children are growing up in and a genuine, urgent desire to do something about it, this show is about empathy. 99 percent of the world's population is made up of other people: why can't we understand them? As scrawny and impassioned as ever, one of the UK's most beloved and thinnest acts offers some suggestions, with his usual notoriously high joke-and-rant-per-minute rate.
‘He sparkles with originality and verve' Chortle
'A kind of unstoppably funny Superhero' Sunday Times

Before The Screaming Starts: -
Following last year’s sell-out shows at the Edinburgh Festival, London's Soho Theatre, national UK tour and at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, musical comedy sisters Flo & Joan have a new hour of their dark and waggish songs to parade about the place.
“These intricately crafted, flawlessly performed numbers will have you howling with laughter one minute, wiping away a tear the next.” The Telegraph
‘Their style is stiletto sharp, their diction perfect as they race through their complex rhymes’ Evening Standard
“If Flanders & Swann and Flight of the Conchords and Garfunkel & Oates had a six-way time-travelling gang-bang that somehow mixed all their DNA, the offspring might end up sounding something like Flo and Joan.” Steve Bennett, Chortle
After three hugely successful BBC series as Lee Nelson, multiple sell-out tours and various court appearances following world-famous stunts on Theresa May, Sepp Blatter, Donald Trump, Kanye West and Britain's Got Talent, the award-winning, critically acclaimed comedian unveils his funniest creation yet… himself! Simon Brodkin's highly anticipated debut stand-up show. One of the The Evening Standard's 'Best Comedy Shows at The Fringe 2019'. 'There aren't many better comedians to turn to' (Daily Telegraph). 'Hilarious' (List). 'Genius' (Independent). 'Get him out!' (Donald Trump).
Lou Sanders - Say hello to your new Step Mummy.
It’s me, Loulie, AKA the face that launched a thousand dicks! In this show I’ll examine relationships (all kinds, baby), mental health (other people’s, I’m fine) and perverts (that one is mainly me, actually).
I’ll be oversharing, wanging on about spirituality and giving everyone some much unwanted advice.
As seen/heard on Taskmaster, QI, 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, Travel Man, Hypothetical, The Russell Howard Hour, The Unbelievable Truth, Ultimate Worrier and more.
‘A comedian who leaves you wanting more’ **** Times

'The Time Show’ is the latest comedy/theatre/spoken word show by writer and performer of some of what he writes Rob Auton. Following on from his critically acclaimed shows about talking, hair, sleep, water, faces, the sky and the colour yellow, “the Fringe's comedian laureate” (British Comedy Guide) now turns his attention to time. He will be asking questions such as “What time is it?” and “What is it time?”

“Poetic, pithy and profound” ★★★★ Evening Standard

Simon Evans: The Work of the Devil
Simon Evans’ last show, Genius 2.0 (***** “A Masterclass” The Scotsman) provided an hilarious analysis of the departure of any visible sign of intelligence from modern life. But his new show raises the stakes, with his usual excoriating views of a world on fire given a perspective shift from personal revelations that turned his world upside down this year.
“A gripping and, ultimately heart-warming tale… rich with Evans' wit and caustic observation.” (**** The Scotsman)
“You expect a high standard of stand-up from this veteran performer. But in sharing something so deeply personal, he’s exceeded what seemed to be his full potential… I’d expect it to get even better when it goes out on tour. Outstanding stuff.” ( **** ½ Chortle)
Simon Evans is the star of Live at the Apollo, Mock The Week, BBC Radio 4's The News Quiz, The Unbelievable Truth & Simon Evans Goes To Market. Simon has made appearances on This Week, Question Time, Celebrity Mastermind, Pointless Celebrities and Mastermind The Professionals.
