19:00 - SOPHIE DUKER

Sophie Duker describes herself as a “sexy-cerebral comedy underdog” and is quickly establishing herself as one of the most exciting new acts on the circuit. In 2018 Sophie starred in a comedy pilot for Channel 4 called Riot Girls, as well as a new pilot for Comedy Central UK called What I Wish I’d Said. She is also a comedy writer whose funnies you might have heard in the following places: the British Broadcasting Co-orporation (Famlam, BBC2; The News Quiz, The Now Show, BBC Radio 4) and Cartoon Network (The Amazing World of Gumball). Sophie is an alumna of the prestigious Pleasance Comedy Reserve, has been shortlisted for the BBC New Comedy Award and is a previous finalist of the Funny Women Awards.

20:15 - ALFIE BROWN

Alfie Brown is charming and disgusting. His new show is about identity politics, trying to be a good father in a horrible world and being responsibly horny in the wake of wide-spread male sex crimes. He provides no answers, only questions. Society's new-found fondness for moral certainty is the subject of a search and destroy mission by Brown. They were wrong all along, it turns out if you believe in something, you’ll fall for anything. 'Quite simply the future of British stand-up' ***** (List). 'A British Doug Stanhope' **** (Guardian).

21:30 - BEN POPE

Ben Pope is an award-winning comedian and cosmopolitan mammal. In this, his debut hour of stand-up, the hapless beast tries to find a nest. Expect jokes and stories on millennial rootlessness, finding and escaping yourself, Scandinavia and milk. Piccadilly Comedy Club New Comedian of the Year 2017 and So You Think You're Funny finalist 2015. As seen on Comedy Central Online and heard on BBC Radio 4 Extra. Praise for previous work: 'Hilarious' (List). 'Straight-up hilarious' (Telegraph). 'Ridiculously hilarious' (Skinny).
