Headline Act: Mick Ferry
Mick is one of those few comedians to be known as the "Comedian's Comedian" - and he was actually voted this in 2013 in a poll amongst circuit comics. He is one of the most original and creative acts on the circuit and works for every large club in the UK. He was featured on Michael McIntyre's Roadshow and is defiantly not to be missed.
"See him or regret it. A great comedian" John Bishop

13th September



Opener: Bethany Black
Bethany is a taboo breaking story teller with a wonderful lightness of touch. A cheeky, chatty style and utterly unique and very funny.
“Something quite special and unique… I was genuinely grateful for the experience.”Time Out London

Middle: Peter Brush
Peter is a superb deadpan one line merchant and a hilarious addition to any bill. His act is packed full of clever and hilarious jokes that always has the crowd in stitches.
"Wonderfully original writing, delivered with a distinctive style" Ten Feet Tall Comedy

Headliner: Simon Bligh
A circuit stalwart, Simon tells high energy stories that never fail to have audiences rolling about. Manic and brilliant, he is a force of nature as he explodes with amusing bemusement about the intricacies of every day life that causes audiences to fall about laughing and nodding in recognition as they try to catch their breath.
"A reliable pleasure, delivering well homed, flannel free gags with a distinctive hyperactive approach" The Guardian.

29th November


Opener: Bobby Murdock
Bobby is instantly likeable with an ability to take you on a journey with him. A master of short stories and silly jokes. Bobby has great variation in his show with witty one-liners and amazing funny stories.

Middle: Nina Gilligan
Sometimes outrageous, always hilarious, observational and story telling comedy for all. A persona you will fall in love with.
"Personality,Confidence, Delivery, Material" Concept Comedy

Headliner: Duncan Oakley
We've had lots of requests for Duncan and it's obvious why - he's fantastic. Duncan is silly and seriously funny. His comedy songs are some of the best on the UK circuit and his musical ability shines through making him one of the most enjoyable closers on the comedy scene.
"Unlike some musical comics who rely on a guitar to get them through, Oakley's routine deftly mixes the tunes with the stand-up" - City Life
