March 2019

Simon Evans: Genius (Comedy) Tue 26th Mar 2019, doors 7.30pm for 8pm start

Tuesday, March 26, 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Ever since he was a small boy, all Evans really wanted was to be recognised by the world as a man of genius. He has, until now, remained thwarted. The world seems increasingly indifferent to true genius of any kind, let alone Evans’. Endlessly distracted by the trivial, we allow the classical tools of grammar, logic and rhetoric to lie unregarded in the shed of consciousness, rusting to a picturesque hue that would actually look really great on Instagram. But which filter? Hmmm… Age guidance 14+ (swearing and adult content)

‘Super-sharp wit’ Time Out

Heroes (aerial dance), Wed 10th April, 7.30pm

Wednesday, April 10, 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

The new aerial dance show from All or Nothing and Room 2 Manoeuvre, Heroes explores the cult of celebrity and the fall from grace, the hidden heroes, superheroes and asks, who do we really, actually look up to? Light hearted with something for all the family, the show mixes aerial skills with dance theatre and contemporary circus.  Asking profound universal questions with humour, straight talking and lots of moving, we follow the journey of the two performers as they navigate their way through the world of idolising and being idolised. Advised age 7+  There is likely to be a workshop offered in conjunction with the show – please check this listing for details nearer to the time.

£12/10 concs/8 U16’s

Phill Jupitus: Sassy Knack (Comedy) Sun 26th May, doors 7.30pm for 8pm start

Sunday, May 26, 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Join stand-up comedian, poet, improviser, and TV stalwart Phill Jupitus for over an hour of tales, laughs and diversions. Watch in delight and/or horror as this experienced funny man drags laughs out of the chaos of his own life. Since last touring Scotland, Phill Jupitus has upped sticks and moved here. In this new show SASSY KNACK, Phill shares yarns and thoughts from his time North of Hadrian’s Wall. Adult themes and situations but delivered childishly. Phill became a familiar face when he started as team captain on BBC2’s pop quiz Never Mind The Buzzcocks. In addition he does live stand up shows all over the UK, and appears as a regular guest on QI (BBC2), and in 2012 returned to television stand-up for the first time since 2000 with an appearance on Live at the Apollo (BBC1).  The show is suitable for ages 14+ (language)
