JOE LYCETT
Offbeat, razor-sharp stand-up from the fastest rising star in comedy. As seen on Live at the Apollo, 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown and Drunk History. There's a good chance you'll Lycett. 'A supremely confident hour by a man who makes funny seem easy' (Guardian).

JORDAN BROOKES

Easily one of the most creative but funny shows I've seen this year' ***** (Mirror). 'Jordan takes all of the stand-up rules in the book and proceeds to snap them in two. Perfectly and intricately performed' **** (List). **** (Chortle.co.uk). **** (Fest).

HOSTED/GAP-FILLED BY: GOOSE

The Independent. **** ‘Sparkles with wit...you just have to submit to this force of nature, until it deposits you, dizzy but exhilirated’ (Chortle), **** ‘A work of theatrical mastery and comic innovation...deconstructive, satirical and stunningly structured’ (Fest).
