Sam Avery: The Learner Parent (16)

Saturday 24 Nov 20188:00pm Book Now

Parenthood is a crafty beast. The second you master something it changes the game so you're rubbish at it again.


Stand-up comedian, viral blogger and bestselling author Sam Avery (aka the Learner Parent) started his award-winning blog when his twin boys were born. A million nappies, Peppa Pig episodes and a head-full of hair loss later, he shares all the lows, highs and hilarious in-betweens of his experiences of first-time parenthood.


Sam's honest, messy account of wrestling with sleep deprivation and breast pumps - right through to his botched attempts at discipline and pathetic bids to stifle various toddler tantrums that definitely registered on the Richter scale - will have you testing your pelvic floor with laughter.

Andrew Maxwell: Showtime (14)

Saturday 11 May 20198:00pm Book Now

With "SHOWTIME" Andrew continued his long run of domination of the Edinburgh Fringe. A memorable cocktail of personal stories, astute political observations and the odd surprise foray into character cameos, it won yet another barrage of five-star reviews for one of the festival's most universally acclaimed acts. Now, it's 'showtime' for the rest of the country.


Andrew is known for his eagle-eyed, passionate current-affairs comedy, showcased in his many appearances on BBC Radio 4 (News Quiz, Welcome To Wherever You Are, Public Enemies). He's been seen on - among others - Live at the Apollo (BBC One), Have I Got News for You (BBC One), Celebrity Juice (ITV2) and Mock the Week (BBC Two); and to a whole new generation he is the devilish voice of MTV's Ex On The Beach.

Mark Watson: The Infinite Show (14)

Friday 13 Sep 20198:00pm Book Now

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.
