Funny Bones Comedy Club

Friday 19 Sept, 7.45pm
With the World Cup long forgotten, we can no longer get our laughs watching England’s performance. So cheer yourself up with unstoppable MC Howard Smith introducing the chatty, cheeky style of Dave Twentyman, the Northern charm of Chris Washington and hilarious Sammy Dobson. It’s only another four years! Contains strong language, recommended age 16+.



  Henning Wehn
Eins, Zwei, DIY

Saturday 20 Sept & Wednesday 12 Nov, 8.00pm
After more than a decade in Britain, the German Comedy Ambassador has ‘groan’ to like puns... though he still couldn't eat a whole one. As Henning’s assimilation is not yet complete he hasn't lost his sense of wonderment at the foibles of British society. Why does everybody want to be owned by a house? What’s wrong with having the Euro? And why hold society and government responsible for personal underachievement… you’ve only got yourself to blame for not being born into a better social class. Expect an evening-long crash course in personal accountability and have a right old laugh at the same time. Wunderbar.

The September date has SOLD OUT, but a second date in November has been added by popular demand.



  Susan Calman
Lady Like

Saturday 27 Sept, 8.00pm
Award-winning comedian Susan Calman is embarking on her first ever UK tour. If you’ve seen her before, Lady Like will be a reassuring couple of hours spent with the woman her neighbours call ‘the mad cat lady’. If you don’t know who she is, this show will, at the very least, make you feel better about your own life. A show about being older, wiser and liking yourself, whatever anyone might say. Susan is a regular on BBC Radio 4’s News Quiz, QI, Have I Got News For You, Fresh Meat and Would I Lie To You.

Stephen Fry Live
More Fool Me

Wednesday 1 Oct, 7.30pm
Broadcast live to Gala from the Royal Festival Hall, this is a rare opportunity to see the celebrated comedian, actor, presenter, writer and raconteur giving a one-man comic tour de force. This event is to mark the publication of Stephen's brand new volume of memoirs More Fool Me. Get a sneak preview of the book: a heady tale of the late ‘80s and early ‘90s in which Stephen - driven to create, perform and entertain - burned bright and partied hard - and damn the consequences.

Please note this performance is broadcast to the big screen at Gala from the Royal Festival Hall.

£15 (£13 conc), £10 Gala Friends


Jason Cook

Friday 3 Oct, 8.00pm
Award winning comedian, writer, creator and star of BBC2’s Hebburn and BBC Radio 4’s Jason Cook’s School of Hard Knocks returns to the road with a show about… well, being broken. Having gained fans for his work in television and radio, Jason is back touring the country doing what he does best, lightning-fast stand up in front of a live audience. Always welcoming, never bullying, the self-deprecating Geordie idiot has found himself in situations he never dreamed of. Come and see how he’s mucked them all up this time.
