Sanderson Jones, hairy mirth-maker and positive vibe distributor, has got a new show that combines comedyand wellbeing to make one 'Comedy Being'.

Expect laughter, Venn diagrams, mindfulness, power ballads, ridiculous dancing and a lot more besides.

You'll leave smiling, hopped up on dopamine and inspired to change the world. Because if this enthusiastic organisational disaster can launch a global movement, imagine what you can do.

Price: £5 or pay what you feel*

"What do you want to be when you grow up?" In his mid 30s Luca managed to narrow the possible answers down to a few options: Cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church, Legionnaire in the French Foreign Legion, expert Japanese sword-smith, lecturer in Latin and a call center operator. Eventually, only one of those exciting career paths became true.

In this brand new show, the Italian who was too funny for his own country describes the lives he never had.

A natural storyteller, Luca is ready to entertain you with his gentle, endearing dark humour. There will also be room for improvisation and audience interaction. 

Winner of So You Think You're Funny (2015), Luca appeared at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal (2016) and has performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival since 2014. He has gigged across Europe (Netherlands, Latvia, Estonia, Finland and Switzerland) and since 2018 he is a regular guest on the Italian TV show Zelig Time.  Luca also recently featured on The Arts Hour Tour (BBC World Service) later this month.

Funny Women Regional Finalist and badly-behaved mother of two, Louise should probably be delousing her kids instead of gallivanting off to Bath to appear in a festival. Nonetheless, here she is.

When she's not removing parasites from her children, Louise somehow finds time to turn in "an impressive performance" (John Hegley) featuring the vagaries of parenting, navigating the choppy seas of middle age and how to shave your legs like you're in an advert. She'll make you laugh until soup comes out of your nose. (If you were already eating soup. If soup comes out of your nose when you haven't been eating soup, you should probably see someone about that, okay?)

Hugely relatable, Louise is “charming, funny and with a natural rapport with the audience.”

All proceeds from this show will go to buying special shampoo and the sachets that get rid of the itchy bum worms.

When she's not removing parasites from her children, Louise somehow finds time to turn in "an impressive performance" (John Hegley) featuring the vagaries of parenting, navigating the choppy seas of middle age and how to shave your legs like you're in an advert. She'll make you laugh until soup comes out of your nose. (If you were already eating soup. If soup comes out of your nose when you haven't been eating soup, you should probably see someone about that, okay?)

Hugely relatable, Louise is “charming, funny and with a natural rapport with the audience.”

All proceeds from this show will go to buying special shampoo and the sachets that get rid of the itchy bum worms.

Michael Legge, the shouty one from Do The Right Thing, is putting together brand new material for a brand new stand-up comedy show.

Star of Live At The Apollo is a terrible description of him, but if you're the kind of person that likes watching a grown man have a nervous breakdown while he tries to figure out the world, himself, the end of all civilisation and brand new jokes, then this is definitely the show for you. He's bound to be in tears 20 minutes in. It'll be hilarious.

The Idiot is Michael's first show since his highly-rated, sell out Jerk in 2017 and that show nearly killed him, so this one will surely see him off. Come along and say goodbye.

Work in progress show.

Invisible is the new show from Cally Beaton (as seen on QI) - an unflinching, hilarious and unexpected insight into life at an age when the world ghosts you.

Cally tells the story of the time she nearly disappeared in Iceland - the country, not the shop. From behind the lines of the mid-life resistance she gets her shellac-ed claws into survival, turning gender stereotypes on their head as she goes.

She won't go gentle into that good night. She might go mental. But she'll never go gentle.

Expect clever, playful, perceptive comedy delivered warmly by two women with lots to say.

When Charlie Partridge was a kid, he dreamt of making stupid noises for a living. He was told it couldn't be done... they were right.

Mostly he can be seen bringing his special brand of idiocy to events for the likes of New Scientist, Vice, The Moth, Google, Facebook, Fosters, Bulmers and Red Bull. He has performed in LA, New York, Paris and Preston and has called more bingo shows than reasonable. Also seen/heard on BBC Three, Radio 4 and 6Music.

More recently he has fallen into writing immersive theatre treasure hunt experiences for people so wealthy they have run out of things to do, but pay him to bury their treasure so they can find it again. For real.

And when he's not doing that he is trying to cut it as a beatboxer, starting at the tender age of 33. He's better than you think.

On August 14, 2018, Robyn Perkins (4 Stars, Voice Magazine) participated in a dating show in front of a live audience.  Her experience led to her exploring human morality and the social constructs of present day dating, with a scientific twist.

Robyn is known for her “confident, charming and relatable personality” (Edinburgh Festivals), which allows her to delve into complex and uncomfortable territory. How do social constructs change how we date? What is the role of morality in attraction? These questions are explored as she shares the story of the most uncomfortable moment she has ever had on stage.

Tony Chiotti - Not-so-fresh Off The Boat

Venue: Bath Brew House
Doors: 8.45pm for 9.00pm show
Duration: 1hr
Price: £5 or pay what you feel*

click to book online

An hour of standup and ramblings from Tony Chiotti, a cranky Yank who's recently docked in Bristol. Observations on boat life, stories from his checkered past, and basically, all his favorite (favourite?) bits strung together into one meandering harbour tour of a life unmoored.

I mean we could go on with talk of a theme or a point, but it's jokes, innit. (Is that how you use 'innit'?) It's all his best jokes, in rapid succession. A man's life work, presented humbly and without intermission. Take a punt.

"My favourite act that I saw last year. A wonderfully comeplling stage persona, but also just a ton of great jokes" - Dan Thomas

"Better than I'd feared" - Stu Goldsmith

"Good gear" - Mat Ewins

"A bit off...in a good way" - Harriet Kemsley

"A great addition to the circuit" - Sean McLoughlin

Comedian Simon Caine is going to Edinburgh 2019 with a new show. In order to do that, he needs to try out his new jokes on you, YES you.

In this latest show Simon looks at his relationship with happiness and social media and how they don't work together with "Quick one-liners [that] rub shoulders with more involved material that rewards you paying full attention" (The Wee Review) and "[his] eccentric turns of phrase and paranoid persona is immediately entertaining, and his tales of irrational exaggeration are simultaneously relatable" (Broadway Baby).

"I've come close to winning 4 national comedy awards (semi-finalist), done over 1,200 gigs and toured the UK three times...if you like hilarious storytelling, witty one-liners and structured narrative-led comedy, this is the show for you."

You know what it's like. You were sort of friends when you were young, and then sometime in the 90s, you're both at Uni and you bond over your love of The West Wing, walking and talking your way down life's own Pennsylvania Avenue, the best of friends, until you inevitably fall out over a girl.

So, it's years later, and there's been lives and careers and wives and babies, and attempts at babies, and a hundred things in between. You could decide it's not worth the time, let the past be the past and just think, "What's next?". Or you could ask yourself, what would Aaron Sorkin do?

A play about friendship, life, the terrifying feeling of trying to make sense of it all and how a simple, seemingly insignificant action, can have an effect that reverberates throughout time.

"A producer and performer of some refreshingly different material" - Chortle

"His sharp interpretations of the world around him add a sinister spin to the everyday - Unique and hilarious" - The Reviews Hub

“Courageous and thought-provoking” - The Scotsman

“A passionate and praiseworthy hour of dark observational comedy” - The Skinny

"There's something spookily LeStat-ish about Alexander Bennett. Just as unnerving is just how good he has become in the past five years" - Fringe Pig

"Hello! My name is Edd Hedges, I'm a comedian and I do storytelling style comedy shows, I've done two before and they both went pretty well. I was invited to do a run at the prestigious SOHO Theatre (fancy) and I got to go to and perform in Australia.

I'm going back to the Fringe with my third hour. It's another story, but this one is a bit different. This show is about a lot of things. It's hard to explain but ultimately it's about two people. A 74 year old man in Essex sitting in his garden in 1999 and a 24 year old, standing on a beach on the other side of the planet in 2018. This show is about 1 second. 1 tiny second where these two people, separated in every imaginable way, were joined together for a moment.

It's going to be funny and good and I really want you to see it."

"Edd Hedges is a joy to watch" - The Scotsman

"It's not often you are left stunned at the end of a Fringe show...funny, complex and dark" ***** The Fountain

"You'll be thinking about Hedges for the rest of the run!" ***** The Student Newspaper
