After a sell-out show in early 2020, headlined by the brilliant Angela Barnes, we are back for another night of hilarity, with four fantastic comics and an MC to brighten a cold November evening!
Headliner – Mike Gunn
For well over a decade Mike has been firmly established as one of the most sought-after and accomplished comedians working on the UK and international circuit. An original talent, distinguished by his trademark laconic and lugubrious dark humour, killer punch lines and masterful delivery.
Mike headlines at all the major clubs in the UK and has performed all across the globe. In 2014 Mike supported Lee Mack on tour which saw him playing to his biggest live audiences to date. On TV, he’s performed on BBC One’s Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, and The World Stands-Up and The Comedy Store for Comedy Central. He’s also appeared on Live at Jongleurs for Channel 5 and Al Murray’s sit-com Time Gentlemen Please for Sky1.

“Mike Gunn will make you die laughing!” The Guardian
Opening Act – Neil McFarlane
Neil is an experienced comic and a regular at the Edinburgh Fringe. He started his comedy career in Scotland 16 years ago, where he remains a regular act at the highly-regarded Stand Comedy Clubs in Glasgow & Edinburgh and now performs in locations across the length and breadth of the British Isles.
