Its back - it's Comedy Night! We have 4, yes 4! fabulous, top-quality stand-up comedians:

  • Andrew Lawrence One of Britain’s most subversive and intelligent comedians, Andrew Lawrence, has been lauded with many awards and nominations for his comedy including winning The BBC New Comedy Award, and being twice nominated for The Fosters Edinburgh Comedy Award. On television he has appeared on Live At The Apollo, The Michael McIntyre Comedy Roadshow, Dave’s One Night Stand and as a regular on Stand Up For The Week. The BBC have also since commissioned Andrew to record his fourth BBC Radio 4 series, There Is No Escape. Straight from Edinburgh on his eleventh consecutive year, he is currently on tour with his show THE HATE SPEECH TOUR.
  • Tony Law Canadian surrealist and master story-teller Tony Law is a three-time Chortle Award winner, Amused Moose Best Show winner and Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee. His extensive TV and radio credits include: Have I Got News For You (BBC One), The Alternative Comedy Experience (Comedy Central), 8 Out Of 10 Cats (Channel 4), Celebrity Mastermind (BBC One), Celebrity Squares (ITV) Never Mind The Buzzcocks (BBC Two), Heading Out (BBC Two), The Culture Show (BBC Two), Charlie Brooker’s Weekly Wipe (BBC Two), Edinburgh Nights (BBC Two), Tony Law’s Surreal Guide To Surreal Comedy (Radio 4 Extra), Loose Ends and Infinite Monkey Cage (Radio 4).
  • Ruth Cockburn Ruth is a familiar face on the UK circuit and UK comedy festivals. A critically acclaimed writer, her solo shows have earned her numerous nominations and awards. Her writing has even travelled across the globe after one of her plays was picked up by an Australian Theatre Company and performed down under.
  • Jason Patterson Jason started out in comedy in 2006 and since then he’s performed at comedy clubs all over the UK. Jason brings the house down with his relaxed style of comedy which leaves the audience wanting more. With the confidence & stage presence of a seasoned pro this versatile comedian is definitly one to watch out for.
    "Jason Patterson absolutely sounds the part. He’s got a rich, deep voice that oozes confidence, and a perfectly measured delivery that gives him instant authority." - Chortle.
So come along and enjoy a laugh and a lager. Or some buffoonery and a beer. Or some wise-cracks and wine. Or some sniggers and cider. The list is endless.
