PHIL NICHOL & ANDREW BIRD 21st February
Our 21st February show is another mix of the frenetic, the thoughtful and the very funny.
Star of television shows such as – ‘Rob Brydon’s Annually Retentive’, ‘The Alternative Comedy Experience’ and with appearances on ‘Never Mind The Buzzcocks’ and nearly all and every comedy compilation on screen – PHIL NICHOL will open the evening.
Phil is a truly unique performer. An acclaimed actor, award winning comedian, producer, presenter, writer and musician there is no end to his talent.
A Perrier Award nominee in 1993 and winner in 2006 (renamed If.Comedy award) as well as the winner of Chortle Best Headliner three times, this appearance comes highly recommended.

Closing the show will be the impressive ANDREW BIRD.
Having recently supported LEE MACK and RHOD GILBERT on nationwide tours, Andrew is one of those rare comedians who makes friends with his audiences in an instant with his engaging mix of childhood stories and more recent anecdotes.

Host for the evening will be Australian import DAMO CLARK.
Damian has had comedy goers in hysterics from the moment he hit the European comedy circuit in 2005. His award winning, high-octane observational comedy has garnered worldwide critical acclaim.
Before touching down in the UK, Damian made Ireland his home and became a regular feature in RTE's REPUBLIC OF TELLY, TV3's THE APPRENTICE: YOU'RE FIRED! plus wrote & co-starred in I DARE YA! which became the highest rating Irish comedy debut to date
“A relentless onslaught of crippling laughs” The Skinny ****

Finally JULIE JONES will be returning to bring a touch of glamour, a soupcon of sophistication and a dash of the exotic to the middle of the show. A consummate professional, dressed to kill and with an attitude to match she can show you another perspective. It's a very funny perspective as well.
