What to expect from a Chris Arnold show? Well, a healthy dollop of silliness, a big old dose of self-deprecation and a sprinkling of interpretive dance. Ultimately, it's Chris sharing his own unique way of looking at the confusing world in which we currently inhabit through his weapon of choice - Microsoft PowerPoint.

As a performer, Chris has appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe, Glastonbury, Ibiza Rocks, Bestival, Boomtown Fair and The British Musical Comedy Awards and performed shows in countries such as Germany, Australia and Indonesia. In March 2019, he embarked on a 14-date headline tour around the UK with his hour-long powerpoint comedy show, which included multiple sell out shows.

He wrote, hosted and directed The Cool Beans Television Show which was nominated for a British Comedy Award alongside such stalwarts as Horrible Histories and Harry & Paul.  He also regularly presents for BBC Radio Bristol and appears in BBC Sesh short comedy clips, as well as regularly performing hosting events and DJing around the country. Previously he was a presenter on Made in Bristol TV and he also recently appeared on the BBC's flagship Inside Out show, giving presenter Seb Choudhury a hand with his very first stand-up comedy set.

POSTPONED

Off the back of her successful 2019 Edinburgh 'Crusade' run, Esther is bringing her work in progress for her second Edinburgh show.

Esther's first show tackled the racism of the alt right and sexism of religious extremists. Now she wants to look closer at the stereotypes of the Arab and Muslim man. How has the middle east and sexism been united into one stereotype? This doesn't match what she saw in the Arab Muslim men in her family...so where have these stereotypes come from? Is there truth in them? Esther just can't see that the Middle East and religion equals sexism...she reminisces over her upbringing in the 90's...is Britain truly guilt free when it comes to sexism? It makes her want to scream "If you are a sexist then you ain't no Muslim and you ain't geeza bruv!"

“Esther Manito: Lebanese British woman, wife, mother, incredible comedian” ****1/2 Edfest Magazine

"Ms Manito is a confident comic with a likeability factor which can do her no harm. Her stage presence and delivery enhance her well written material and it is easy to see why she is doing so well, both nationally and internationally" ****One4Review

"It's clear that Esther is bringing a much-needed voice" **** Funny Women

Esther has opened for Jason Mansford, Shappi Korsandi, Alan Davies and Sindhu Vee.
Finalist of So You Think You're Funny, Bath New Act of the Year, Sussex New Comedian and BBC New Comedian nominee 2016-19.

The show that was going to be about feminism, but is now going to be about her dog.

As seen on BBC3, All4, Comedy Central and ITV2, Lily asks you to join her on her journey from cheerleader, to feminist, to dog lover. Female comedians are often criticised for just talking about their Vaginas, which is offensive, but in Lily's case 100% true and now she has a dog, who has one too.

Smut covers all the trials and tribulations that come with being a female human and a female dog. Like turning 30 only to discover that apparently your vagina gets bigger with age rather than usage, how to deal with your dogs cystitis, and what happens when your boyfriend has to help you birth your own menstrual cup... they are still together now by the way, if anything, it has brought them closer. No animals were harmed in the process FYI.

Leicester Square New Comedian of the Year 3rd Place, Komedia New Act FINALIST, Funny Women FINALIST, Max Turner FIANLIST and Pleasance Reserve Comedian 2019 Lily is so excited to be bringing her unique brand of comedy to the masses.

POSTPONED

Spaniel-in-human-form, Louise Leigh is a "polished,sparky performer able to energise a room...hilarious" (****The Wee Review) and "super mature at home, buoyant in the field" (Dogcrunch.com). But can she navigate the undergrowth of midlife without tripping over her spaniel's ears? And can she still be adorable at 48?

"Louise Leigh is one of the most original and promising new acts to come out of the South West Comedy scene... Consistently funny and unafraid to experiment...Highly recommended" - Wil Hodgson

"Great confidence, great performance, great jokes!" Gary Delaney

Since finally starting the career in comedy she had been putting off since she was seventeen, Louise has been making more and more people laugh, mostly in the West of the UK. This is her second hour-long show and it's mostly about what happens when you give yourself permission to be an idiot, when you're supposed to be growing up. It's a love letter to her inner spaniel...and to actual spaniels.

If you like laughing, dogs, laughing at dogs (never do this, they look sad) and mucking about, you'll have a great time with Louise.

Audience reviews of Louise: 
"Great night out! Hilarious, haven't laughed so much in ages"
"This woman is the comedian I never knew I needed! Proper funny, proper refreshing, proper job"
"Hilarious, touching, moving, laugh-out-loud-therapy-for-the-soul. Lou's carefully observed humour balances kind with cutting and takes reflective introspection and turns it into energetic, crazy, joyful playful performance. Go see her!"

Andrew White's biggest fear has always been confrontation - famously the hardest fear to confront.

He's spent the first 20 years of his life running from problems and people pleasing, but now some earth shattering news has finally forced him to face everything head on...

In this, his fourth solo show, Andrew takes a look at all the things that go unsaid in a society that more and more values openness and sharing.

How important was coming out as gay? What do parents know about their children's personal lives? And is it sometimes healthier to not address all of your issues?

Through personal stories, some unexpected one-liners and even loop-pedal based observational comedy, this show will bear all. A hilarious and honest hour all about sex, family, and confrontation.

Meanwhile, another man baby was in The White House, Britain would soon install his mini-me in Downing Street, and 'strong men' were in charge of governments across the globe.

Alistair did not pay too much attention as his life was a blur of nappies, laundry and snot, conducted in an atmosphere of exhaustion and marital tension threatening to break out into open hostility at any moment.

His two year old-daughter was already furious to discover the world didn't revolve around her, a realisation which had been bothering Alistair for decades. As the year progressed, he also began to wonder how he could teach his son what it was to be a man in a world ruled by men. The result is Manstrong, the guide to parenting that Dr Spock never got around to writing, as Alistair attempts to explain everything to his son, his daughter, and most of all, himself.

Alistair Barrie is a frequent guest on BBC Scotland's 'Breaking the News, Radio 4's 'Broadcasting House' and Radio 5 Live's 'Question Time Extra Time'. A regular with The Comedy Store's weekly topical show 'The Edge', he has headlined shows in over forty countries and twice been nominated for best show at The Edinburgh Fringe.

"Harun Musho'd is an Arabic name. Good news is I can't drive. Bad news is I have a rucksack. If you don't like that joke, don't come to this show."

The reasons Harun Musho'd doesn’t talk to people about terrorism include: prejudice and stereotyping, complex family background, two near-misses as a victim of terrorism, and the obvious fact that he doesn't identify as a terrorist. The show isn't just about terrorism, but encompasses politics more widely and some exploration of his complex background, and bonkers family.

A show about yoga and empathy. Or lack of it.

I know many of us roll our eyes when people send social media 'hugs', but there probably aren't quite so many who push fingers onto drawing pins in pockets so they can conjure up the required face-work during tearful farewells.

This is me. And I'm getting worse. I recently sat through a friend's tale of a painful break-up and the best suggestion I could offer was 'make that half as long, ditch the boring bit about his feet...beef up the ending, maybe throw in an abortion'.

It's clearly time for self-improvement, and in INFLEXIBLE I chart the drip-drip-drip depletion of my empathy, and my subsequent attempts to reconnect with a better me through the wonders of Yoga...the 20 year old Sally, the one who had all the time in the world for joy-sapping wallowers.

Using the world famous PsychOMeter™ this handy show will teach you how to spot your very first psychopath, and how to manage the cheeky little fellow before he eats your life.

Maddy Anholt is back with a vital and hilarious new show.

She has appeared on BBC Three’s Jerk, was nominated for Best New Show at Leicester Comedy Festival, performed on Radio 4’s No Smoke and played Mariah Carey’s Mum on ITV (no really).

'How To Train Your Psychopath' is a darkly witty insight into the bizarre world of controlling relationships. We’ll learn if it’s possible to train a psychopath, or if it’s better to get the f*** out!

***** EdFringe Review "Nothing short of brilliant" **** Broadway Baby
