Contemporary Greats
  • Hans Teeuwen - Live In London

    The grandmaster of absurdity - Hans Teeuwen blends clowning, piano, mime and puppetry whilst waltzing the boundaries of taste and embarrassment.

    This is free sprit comedy of the highest pedigree that confronts some very real issues - from aggression and anxiety to lust and politics. Oh, and t...

  • Norman Lovett - Outside The Box

    It's said that you shouldn't meet your heroes, but it turns out as long as your hero is Norman Lovett, then it's all OK. Probably best known for his portrayal of Holly in Red Dwarf - Norman gives a masterful display of the laid back, surreal whimsy that's made him a cult figure on and off screens...

  • Marcel Lucont - Gallic Symbol

    Acerbic and magniloquent Frenchman seeks willing, intelligent audience for one hour only of fun, adventure, maybe something more. Must have own underwear, socks and breath but be prepared to have these charmed off, laughed off and taken away respectively. Follow: @MarcelLucont

  • Phil Nichol - The Naked Racist

    Canadian Phil Nicol’s explosive, chaotic energy sets his shows miles apart from the more commercial, safe, and observational. Get your sweaty thrills as he takes us though one recklessly wild journey through the streets of Amsterdam, and one hell of a full frontal climax. Follow @philnichol

  • Tony Law - Maximum Nonesense

    A journey of gloriously off-beat, loud and ridiculous comedy from the king of tongue-in-cheek absurdity. Watch as this Canadian comic affectionately mocks and undercuts the conventions of stand-up as we know it. Follow: @mrTonyLaw

  • Lou Sanders - Another Great Show Again

    A genderless riot from a little old force-to-be-reckoned-with. Sanders goes hard-pedal, without too much of a fuss. Forty five jokes, six props, one hero and I dare say a bit of heartbreaking (you), groundbreaking (her). Follow: @LouSanders

  • Phil Nichol - Nearly Gay

    Fringe veteran Phil Nichol’s manically exuberant stage presence is the stuff of legend. Nearly Gay is a rollicking rollercoaster of comedy and song covering topics ranging from dumping your girlfriend to gay spiders. Follow: @philnichol

  • Simon Munnery - Hello

    An impulsively original show crammed full of standup, stories, songs and poems from this constant innovator. Simon Munnery is a comedian who never fails to exploit logic to it's absurd conclusion. Follow: @simonmunnery
