Comedy Galore At The Hawth
Comedy hotspot, The Hawth, has nights of laughter all wrapped up this autumn winter, with no less than eight top notch comedians lined up in the new season. Jonathan Pie (Oct 7) and Romesh Ranganathan (Nov 12) have already sold out but that still leaves plenty to choose from:
On Thursday 20 October, funny woman, Kerry Godliman will be heading to the Studio with her new offering, Stick or Twist. Kerry’s straight-talking brand of quick wit and bewilderment covers more of life’s anomalies. Why is there a Buddha at the garden centre? Why collect her children’s teeth? And even though she can’t stand aubergines, why is it her favorite emoji?
You’ve seen him on Live at The Apollo and Have I Got News For You? You may even have seen the ‘utterly brilliant’ (Time Out) Nish Kumar at The Hawth. He returns to the Studio with Actions Speak Louder Than Words, Unless You Shout the Words Real Loud on Wednesday 26 October. Nish will be talking history, democracy and capitalism – in a funny way.
Al Murray The Pub Landlord: Let’s Go Backwards Together is a night you won’t want to miss on Wednesday 23 November. The nation’s critically acclaimed bar-based-braveheart embarks on a common sense campaign to re-Great Britain in his brand new show. We live in troubling times. Europe. The NHS. Whatever the hell is going on in the Middle East. The gathering storm of fortnightly bin collections? Who knows where it will all end? Watch the one man who will call time on tyranny even though he isn’t quite sure what it means. Watch the one man who isn’t afraid to say no to women ordering anything other than a glass of white wine (or fruit based drink).
Are you 16-years-old, yet feel 21? Are you 40, but tragically faking 25? Or maybe you’re full-on 80 years, with the heart of three oxen and the sex drive of a bonobo chimp. Don’t worry: this is normal. No one is ever the ‘right’ age – it is the beauty and the curse of being a real person. Come along and hear Russell Kane unleash a new, blisteringly-funny, award-winning stand-up performance about growing up and growing down in Right Man, Wrong Age on Tuesday 29 November.
Then Ellie Taylor, star of Mock the Week, The John Bishop Show, Radio 4’s The Now Show and 8 out of 10 Cats brings her brand new stand-up show, Infidelliety, to The Hawth Studio on Wednesday 16 November. Dealing with that pesky bit of marriage known as monogamy, it’s a must see evening of comedy.
And last but not least for this season on Friday 20 January Lee Hurst is back on the road with his next stand up show… Comedy Show No. 9. It’s a show, it’s the 9th one and it’s comedy. What else do you need to know? Come along for a night of laughs with that bald bloke you thought was dead.
