“His style is thoroughly engaging”

Russell is a likeable act who the audience instantly warm and with his sharp and cheeky material he’s the perfect act for any live audience. Originally hailing from Liverpool he now travels the world knocking them dead with his patter.

Michael Shafar

Michael Shafar has taken plenty of big steps in his career as a comedian to date not least leaving his native Australia to ply his comedy trade here in the UK.

In 2016, Michael burst onto the comedy scene in the highly prestigious RAW Comedy National Final, represented Australia in the Laugh Factory’s Funniest Person in the World Competition and toured across Asia, headlining at the continent’s biggest clubs.

“Shafar circumnavigates the line between edgy and offensive with beautiful finesse” The Age

He has since appeared on Network 10’s The Project and Studio 10, ABC’s Comedy Bites, and triple j’s Good Az Friday. He has also had 70+ million views of his comedy videos online and two comedy specials - A(LIVE) available on Amazon Prime and Alright, Next Joke on YouTube.

This is a rare chance to see him in town, so don't miss out!

Andy Woolston

Andy Woolston has come a long way to establishing himself on the comedy circuit, and is regularly charming audiences around the UK. This Hull-based comedian is bringing his charm to the south coast this March.

“Andy Woolston provides a warming and refreshingly honest voice to the macabre humourist style of comedy. A voice his generation can relate to.” Hull Comedy Festival

“Well-placed punchlines and smart concepts ranging from dark to daft, with a low status delivery that makes it all work perfectly.” Jim Bayes

“Uncomfortably funny” Steve Rimmer, Hull Comedy

Sunjai Arif

Sunjai Arif quickly wins over audiences with his confidence and warm personality. He is an engaging comedy story teller and covers tales about his family, speeding tickets and extremist rodents.

Sunjai is a solid comedy act, oozes charm and will leave you grinning ear to ear. What really gets people talking is when Sunjai brings his more alternate comedy routines to the stage. Audiences lean forward with excitement and anticipation of what he’ll do next.

Experience the sheer joy of seeing Sunjai share his memories of nostalgic pop culture in a way only he could imagine.
