The Comedy Store (Feb)

Sunday 1 Feb, 7.30pm
With over 35 years’ experience in the business, our friends at The Comedy Store have come a long way since they opened their first comedy club above a strip club in Soho. With a host of clubs and comedy nights around the country - and even a club in Mumbai - they’re still the greatest and most influential comedy business on the planet.

Using the very best performers on the circuit, each month they create a line-up especially for the audiences of Durham. So if you fancy a cracking evening of laughter, come and join the fun. Contains strong language, recommended age 16+.

£11 (£9 conc), (£8 Students and Gala Friends)


  The Complete History of Comedy (abridged)
By The Reduced Shakespeare Company

Wednesday 4 Feb, 7.30pm
They’ve done history, the Bible and the world’s most celebrated playwright, now the bad boys of abridgment tackle the subject they were born to reduce and leave no joke untold, as they deconstruct the entire history of comedy. From the high-brow to the low, these 90 rollicking minutes cover comedy through the ages, from Aristophanes and Moliere (is Moliere funny!?) to Charlie Chaplin and Nick Clegg (is Nick Clegg funny!?). Tickets are more affordable than an amusement park, but you’ll come away with the same feeling of nausea and motion sickness.

£16 (£14 conc)


  Paul Foot
Hovercraft Symphony in Gammon # Major

Friday 6 Feb, 8.00pm
Heralded by critics, Paul’s previous tours have been showered with five-star reviews and nominations and credited as ‘masterful’ and ‘ingenious’. His subversive, insightful absurdity constantly challenges and delights his faithful connoisseurs, and gathers new fans. Don’t miss your chance to see what the Daily Express called ‘a cult classic’. Re-scheduled from Tuesday 14 October.

"it's baffling to me that Paul is not a household name in this country" Noel Fielding



Al Murray - The Pub Landlord
One Man, One Guvnor

Monday 9 Feb, 7.30pm
Twenty years ago Britain’s favourite publican embarked on his one man mission as the King Cnut of Common Sense, holding back a tide of bottled beer and ninny state nonsense. To celebrate this milestone - 20 years at the lager top - join this icon with his brand new show returning to Gala for a second date.

“Al Murray has become a bona fide British institution” The Independent



Funny Bones Comedy Club

Friday 13 Feb, 7.45pm
Charged with being hilarious in an intimate setting are this quartet of mirth makers: the warm and engaging Chris Tavner, the razor-sharp punchlines of Luke Benson, the beautifully delivered material of John Pendal and the one-liners and silly stories of MC Nicola Jane Mantalios-Lovett. Guilty? You decide. Contains strong language, recommended age 16+.
