Thus far, Paul has lived his life content in the understanding that stability and emotional happiness were lovely ideas but not really for him. Nonetheless, several decades of cheerfully bearing boozy witness to the narratives of others can slowly change a man. And so can a prosecco-fuelled Christmas.
“One of our most thoughtful and enjoyable comedians” Times
“This is what a good stand-up should be. Hilariously funny, passionate and articulate” Chortle
“Makes you realise the power of stand-up comedy and the respect it deserves as an art form” Yorkshire Post
An award-winning comedian, Paul has appeared on Just A Minute and Fighting Talk on radio and on QI and Taskmaster on television. A lifetime of curiosity and learning informs Paul's comedy and this has led to a concurrent career, as a general knowledge expert on the ITV quiz show, The Chase.
Having hit 60 (but still a year younger than Madonna), Jenny Eclair AKA ‘The Face of Vagisan’ confronts a new decade of decrepitude.
Now that it takes 20 minutes of scrolling down to find her DOB when she’s filling in forms online, should she celebrate or crawl into a hole? What will her 60s hold for this 1960s babe and is it a legal requirement to buy Nordic walking poles?
PS: I’m carrying quite a lot of excess lock down weight, which you can feel free to discuss behind my back during the interval.
Love Jenny x
Get ready to dive into a rabbit hole of the best jokes in the world - star of Live at the Apollo and sell-out sensation Gary Delaney is back!
One of the most sought after joke writers in the country and longstanding Mock the Week special guest, Gary has been through the laughing glass and he’s ready to bring you a brand new show with hit after hit of the kind of one-liners only a master could craft.
If you’re hunting for snark, Gary’s got it covered!
★★★★ ‘A cavalcade of brilliantly inventive puns’
★★★★ ‘More quality jokes in one hour than most comics have in their entire careers...Quite brilliant’
★★★★ ‘A master craftsman’
★★★★ ‘One of Britain's grandmasters of the one-liner'’
‘The biggest stand up hit of the decade’
Fresh from a successful Off-Broadway run, comedian Luisa Omielan tours the UK with her highly anticipated God is a Woman show.
Luisa already has three groundbreaking hit shows under her belt. First, she asked "What Would Beyonce Do?! " (sell out across the UK and Australia, is what she would do!), then she asked "Am I Right Ladies?!" and her thigh gap joke went viral with over 45 million views. Then she turned to politics and got a show on the BBC entitled "Politics for Bitches". So the next logical step was for Luisa to bring her unique genre of comedy to religion - expect Mary Magdalene and dick jokes.
‘She should be put on the national curriculum’
Luisa has been featured in The Guardian, The Radio Times, Forbes, Vogue, The Metro, Stylist Magazine, The Huffington Post, The Telegraph and countless other publications. She’s been nominated two years in a row for Best Comedy Show at the Melbourne International Festival and loves taking her universal shows around the world. Luisa is the first comedian to be acknowledged with a BAFTA Breakthrough award.
“One of the most powerful and provocative hours on The Fringe"
Luisa has created a unique genre of comedy that’s a heart-wrenching journey; part rave and part rally. Her shows are uplifting, thought provoking, ahead-of-the-times and damn funny. She counts Dawn French, Lenny Henry, Richard Curtis and Ruby Wax as super fans.
And yes, Luisa will be accompanied on stage by her partner in crime, Bernie - the funniest Bernese mountain dog on the block.

He's blind. He's a dad. He's a husband. He's third in command. He'll speaky about all of that, plus loads more nonsense in between!
Chris McCausland is heading back out on tour, but don't worry, he's got somebody else doing the driving.
Expect bad attitude and good jokes as Jo Caulfield brings her hugely successful 2019 Edinburgh Festival show, Voodoo Doll, as well as her brand new 2020 show.
Never one to take herself too seriously, Jo says the things you'd love to, but fear you would lose your job or get arrested over. Unreasonable neighbours, call centres, snobby ghosts, prosecco drinkers, being married forever, rude children. Nothing and no one escapes her acerbic tongue in a guaranteed night of cathartic laughter.
A television regular, Jo has been seen on BBC1’s Have I Got News For You and Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow as well as BBC2’s Mock the Week and Never Mind the Buzzcocks, while her frequent radio appearances include BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show, The News Quiz, The Unbelievable Truth, Just A Minute and Woman’s Hour, alongside three series of her own show, It’s That Jo Caulfield Again.
