Alistair Barrie: Woke in Progress

Alistair Barrie brings his hit Edinburgh show  to Bath for one night only.

Come and see this "beautifully crafted hour" (**** Scotland on Sunday) as a middle-aged man rants about bringing up a five year old and a three year old in a country a succession of ever more appalling Prime Ministers are doing their very best to destroy. You have to make jokes. What else can you do? 

"A no frills master of his craft" ***** The Scotsman
"One of the UK's sharpest comedians" ***** The Herald
"Utterly, utterly hilarious" ***** The Student
"Barrie's act is a polished gem, honed through years of working out what makes us laugh" **** Fringe Review
"Pointed, witty, and downright hilarious" **** Entertainment Now

Bennett Arron: Loser

What's it like to be a winner? Bennett Arron wouldn't know.

He's been a presenter on TV and Radio, written sitcoms, starred in the BBC Radio 4 series Alone and even been shortlisted for a BAFTA, but life still laughs at him. Book early to enjoy disappointment.

"One of the best on the circuit...a Welsh Seinfeld" - The Guardian
"Had the room creased up with laughter" **** The Scotsman
"Wonderful...note perfect"****Evening Standard
"Genuinely original and funny" - The Times

Winner: Comedy Poster Award, Edinburgh Fringe 2023

"I've seen over 20 shows this year and LOSER is by far the best. A wonderful hour of fantastic jokes, great stories and a beautiful and emotional ending. This should win every award going even though that goes against the title!!" - Audience review, Edinburgh Fringe 2023
