Phil Wathern

A show about managing to being consistently unlucky in the face of great opportunity, from a comedian who had the misfortune to make his first steps into live comedy just weeks before the pandemic made it illegal.

Expect well constructed, self-deprecating and generally dour joke-packed routines, delived with a deceptively charming and laid back stage presence, from a 2022 Stand Up For Cider new act competition runner up.

"A very skilled writer...his material was strong throughout" - Notts Comedy Review
"I absolutely love his material and stage presence. Audience warm to him immediately" - Chappers Comedy

Dan Coughtrey

Dan is a local Cardiff comic who travels the country telling his whimsey from pillar to post, you'll learn all you need to know about him within 5 minutes, because he will bear all.

Funny stories with punchlines peppered throughout.

* Book in advance to guarantee a seat, or free entry and pay what you feel on exiting the venue.
