Covid-secure conditions incuding temperature checks, regular sanitising and cleaning, air conditioning, distancing disguised as cabaret seating, table service.

This week's star line-up:


Earth's funniest footwear, with their trademark songs, sketches, socks and violence are unparalled in the world of comedy puppetry.

Always a favourite at Festivals, the Socks have played the world's stages for many years.

"A miniature Morecambe and Wise" - **** Bath Echo


Tapping into subjects such as mental health, da club and Pitbull, Chelsea's "gently incisive" (Bath Echo) cheeky humour makes difficult topics easy to laugh at.

Finalist in both the 'Bath Comedy Festival New Act of the Year' and 'So You Think You're Funny' competitions in 2019.

"Personable, likeable...one to watch" - Scotsman


Danny is a force of nature. Right from starting out on the comedy circuit he was opening for the likes of Victoria Wood, Ricky Gervais, Jon Richardson and even Bob Monkhouse.

He's hosted his own primetime BBC1 TV show and sailed the world on the most prestigious cruise ships. As well as stand-up he's a well respected magician who "puts Houdini to shame" (Daily Mail).

"Buckler has it all - hes funny as hell" **** The Skinny
