Funny Bones Comedy Club

Friday 18 April, 7.45pm
Why not come and join us for Funny Bones? Get your funny-muscles tickled and start the weekend with a chuckle, courtesy of some of the circuit’s finest young comedians, including MC Warren Speed introducing the turns. Expect cracking gags and audience banter from David Ward, the warm and laid back style of Paul James and laughs galore from Catherine Scott. And why not join us for a pre-show curry (serving from 6.00pm to 7.00pm)… just ask the Box Office for details. Contains strong language, recommended age 16+.



  Russell Kane

Sunday 20 April, 8.00pm
What is it with us and smallness? We Brits love it - being tiny but fierce, close but distant. This Jedward-haired award-winning idiot is the same, and he returns with a new blisteringly big-small show. Watch him ejaculate thoughts about smallness; on keeping things small when life gets big.

“a smart, probing brain lurks below the vertiginous quiff” Evening Standard

“Russell Kane's new show will make this one-of-a-kind man of the people a big star” The Telegraph



  Jerry Sadowitz
Comedian, Magician, Psychopath

Friday 25 April, 8.00pm
Jerry is best known as an offensive comedian but he is also one of the world’s most skilled and creative card magicians. In this show you'll get to see some amazing sleight of hand and some original magic projected on a large screen which means you automatically get a front row seat without having to actually sit near him! Not for the easily offended, but a fantastic show of slick card tricks,slight of hand and hard hitting humour which comes at you like a runaway train. Please note that this show is not suitable for anyone with less than £22.50.

“genius... astounds, amuses and appals in equal measure” The Times

This Olivier Award winning play celebrates the extraordinary life of Britain's best loved comic, from his beginnings as a child-performer to the glitz and glamour of international stardom. Starring the multi-talented Bob Golding as the great man, this is a moving, often hilarious tale about an affectionate lad with funny bones; a born entertainer; the tall one with glasses; the man what brought us the sunshine. What do you think of it so far?

“will bring sunshine into the lives of all who see it” Daily Telegraph

“wonderful… exceptional… incredibly emotional… hilarious” The Times

£17 (£15 conc), £13 Gala Friends
