Henning Wehn
Eins, Zwei, DIY

Saturday 20 Sept, 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 Westphalian 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.



  Craig Campbell
Thrilling Mic Hunt

Tuesday 27 May, 8.00pm
The internationally-acclaimed Canadian comedian returns to Gala. Craig has supported Frankie Boyle on his last two sell-out national tours, has performed smokin' sets on Dave’s One Night Stand, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow and has more recently been seen on tour in The Lumberjacks alongside fellow Canadians Stewart Francis and Glenn Wool. A formidable force, Craig delivers high octane, charismatic performances and hilarious anecdotes.

“one of the most skilled storytellers and jokesmiths on the circuit” Chortle



  Al Murray - The Pub Landlord
One Man, One Guvnor

Saturday 4 Oct, 7.30pm
Twenty years ago Britain’s favourite publican Al Murray, The Pub Landlord, embarked on his one man mission as the King Cnut of Common Sense, holding back a tide of bottled beer and ninny state nonsense.

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



Yes, Yes, Whatever…?!

Wednesday 8 Oct, 8.00pm
Hilarious world-class stand-up from one of live comedy’s internationally acclaimed masters. Jimeoin returns with his ever-evolving live show… a mixture of his signature observations, with hawk-eye dissection of the absurdities of life and how we live it. You’ve seen him on TV in shows including Live at the Apollo, The Royal Variety Performance, Channel 4’s O2 Comedy Gala, 8 Out of 10 Cats, and Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow. But nothing beats seeing the great man live. Recommended: 14+

“comedy of the highest order… inspired” The Independent

£16.50 (£14.50 conc)

Satirist For Hire

Friday 31 Oct, 8.00pm
