Henning Wehn
Eins, Zwei, DIY

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.



  Mark Watson

Thursday 13 Nov, 7.30pm
The winner of five major comedy awards, a 24-hour-show luminary and novelist, Mark hosts BBC's We Need Answers, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Mock The Week and is the star of cult Radio 4 series Mark Watson Makes The World Substantially Better). This is his darkest, most personal show yet. Luckily, it’s also his funniest. Recommended age: 14+

“the highest achiever the Edinburgh Festival has seen this decade. A huge comic presence” The Times

Gary Delaney

Tuesday 18 Nov, 8.00pm
Gary is back on the road and thinks that most shows don’t contain enough jokes, so is trying single-handedly to redress the balance. So… expect jokes. Don’t expect narrative, themes or a voyage of self-discovery. A star of Mock The Week and a double Sony Award Winner, Gary is a razor-sharp one-liner comedian, widely regarded as being the most quotable comic around.

From BBC2’s Mock The Week and BBC Five Live’s 7 Day Saturday and a double Sony Award winner and Chortle Award nominee, this razor-sharp one-liner comedian, is widely regarded as being the most quotable comic around. As well as writing for GQ and the Daily Mirror he has also written for 8 out of 10 Cats, A League of Their Own, Live at the Apollo and many more.

“I laughed and I laughed and I laughed… a master craftsman” The Times

£14 (£12 conc)


Kate Fox
Poet in Residence

Sunday 23 Nov, 7.30pm
Stand-up poet Kate Fox has been Poet in Residence for a half marathon, a BBC Radio 4 show, Glastonbury Festival... and a colostomy nurse’s conference. When did we start giving poets residencies, and where will it end? Kate shares some of her funniest poems and stories from her residencies which have seen her writing a poem while running 13 miles, and being very tempted to test out a catheter in the name of true poetic reportage. She also explores the idea of home and how words can make us fit in or stand out, in a funny, thought-provoking show from someone making her living on poetry’s frontline.

“funny, endearing with a journalistic cynicism that cuts through the whimsy” Sunday Telegraph
