Katherine Ryan
Glam Role Model

Wednesday 10 Dec, 8.00pm
A dude who is fast becoming a recognisable face on British TV with appearances on Live At The Apollo, Let's Dance for Comic Relief, Mock The Week, QI, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, 8 Out of 10 Cats and more, Katherine embarks on her second UK stand-up tour. The fresh, often dangerously fierce pop-culture obsessed Canadian, was unaffected by publicised death threats and survived the world's first crack-smoking mayor. Recommended age 16+

John Shuttleworth
A Wee Ken To Remember

Saturday 31 Jan, 8.00pm
The versatile singer/organist wants to share fond memories of his favourite past weekends. However, a typo on the poster (‘weekend’ has become ‘wee Ken’) means John is obliged to spend the evening paying homage to his next-door neighbour and agent - the diminutive Ken Worthington. With any luck, John will end up doing both. In this brand new show, Sheffield's funniest man (as heard on BBC Radio 4's John Shuttleworth's Lounge Music) performs classic tunes such as Two Margarines and I Cant Go Back To Savoury Now as well as newer ditties like Whatever Happened to Vince Hill? and Relatives In Rotherham.

“punch the air to character comedy in a class of its own” Sunday Times

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

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