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+.



Simon Amstell
To Be Free

Thursday 19 Feb, 8.00pm
Following sold out residencies in New York and London, Simon embarks on his fourth international stand up tour. With intense vulnerability and troubling honesty, he explores freedom, joy, love, death, adventure, art, peace, sex, regret, success, eating, suffering, dreaming, healing, forgiving and more. Simon (Grandma’s House, Never Mind the Buzzcocks) has won two British Comedy Awards, an RTS Award, a Broadcast Award, a Chortle Award and has been nominated for a BAFTA. Recommended age 15+.

“has a gift for taking a social norm and gently mocking it until it seems utterly ridiculous. Highly literate... an endearing mixture of offhanded candour and sharp wit. Such ease and understatement makes him very good company” The New York Times

£21 (£18 conc)
