Sean Sellers, Vern Griffiths, Ria Lina and Matt Burden bring you an unforgettable night of comedy at Matthews Yard on Saturday September 1st.

Your headliner is Ria Lina.
Lina's first performance as a stand-up comedian was while still at St. Andrews University in 1998. She did not perform regularly until she moved to London in 2000 to do her PhD. By the time she had finished her PhD she was an award-winning stand-up comedian working regularly on the UK comedy circuit. Lina has taken four critically acclaimed shows to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, 'School of Riason' (2014) was nominated for the Amused Moose Laughter Awards, and contained one of Dave's Top 10 Jokes of the Fringe.[5] It was scheduled to be a Radio 4 special to be aired in 2016.[6] Her previous shows 'Thpethial' (2013) and 'It's Not Easy Being Yellow' (2012), have also been performed at the Brighton Fringe, the Leicester Comedy Festival, and in Asia as part of the Magner's International Comedy Festivals.[7][8]

She is also seen regularly on the UK comedy circuit, with her trademark mix of dry wit and bawdy ukulele songs. As a writer she has contributed to two Ladyboys of Bangkok tours.[9] Her most recent project, 'Taboo Raider', debuted at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August 2015.[10]
