Dan Nightingale:

Another great hour of stand-up from of the UK circuits very best (award winning) comedians. Heartfelt, funny and as ever brutally honest this is the story of a huge shift in circumstances for Dan.

 

A little over three years ago he was a single, fairly selfish party man-child/comic and now he lives with his with his wife and small child in a sleepy seaside town, in his Grandparent's old bungalow.

 

*Warning*This show includes tentative references to mild sex and gentle drug use, but repeatedand gratuitous use of the word bungalow.

FUNNY STUFF #2

25th July

 

 

Justin Moorhouse: 

Following a critically acclaimed UK tour Justin Moorhouse is pleased to announce his highly anticipated return to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe for the premiere of his brand new show.

“HILARIOUS STORYTELLING COMBINED WITH A QUICK WIT.”  British Theatre Guide

 

These days Justin’s not certain about anything apart from his uncertainty – Brexit looms, it appears the Cold War is being rebooted and that’s before we begin to worry about what’s happening in America…..closer to home he’s starting to feel redundant as a parent. One kid is leaving home, the dog is getting older and needs fewer walks, and the youngest kid hits thirteen and cancels the family subscription to The Beano.

 

On top of this the golden age of the Northern straight white male comedian has gone the way of the dinosaurs. Can he adapt to survive? What next for this Northern Joker? What can he talk to his daughter about now she cares little for Dennis the Menace and the Bash St Kids? Hang on. Perhaps nothing has changed that much. When he was thirteen, the Russians were scary, the White House was a madhouse and he’d never been to Europe anyhow. Thinking back this is when his reading habits changed too, more Dark Knight than Desperate Dan, more Catwoman than Minnie the Minx. Perhaps our heroes never went away….they just waited for us to pick them up again. Perhaps she just needs a different type of comic….

 

“THE JOKES COME THICK AND FAST”  Broadway Baby

 

AND...

 

Alun Cochrane: YOU. ME. NOW.

Come on then! (To my show) You want some? (Comedy) You wanna go? (Buy a ticket then)

I'll be joking about you, me, and this wonderfully odd time to be alive.

 

Alun Cochrane has been doing solo standup shows at the Edinburgh Fringe since 2004. He has performed at International Comedy festivals, pub gigs, comedy clubs, and touring. He's regularly been really funny on Frank Skinner's radio show, and Just A Minute, and is sometimes on TV shows and panel games including Room 101, Mock The Week, and Have I Got News For You.
