Omid Djalili: The Good Times Tour Tuesday 5 April 8 pm £25

Gyles Brandreth: Break A Leg! Saturday 21 May 7.30 pm £20
They say all political careers end in tears. In Brandreth’s case, it’s tears of laughter as the actor, author, ex-MP, One Show reporter, and QI, Have I Got News For You, and Countdown star is back on tour with his new show celebrating all things theatrical. Without hesitation or repetition (and just a touch of deviation), Just a Minute regular Gyles delivers a dazzling evening of wit, wisdom, high drama, low comedy, and hilarious name-dropping.
Rich Hall’s Hoedown Deluxe Friday 27 May 8 pm £17
Rich Hall’s comedy/music locomotive keeps on rollin’. Ever-evolving, ever-changing, Rich’s combination of keen acerbic stand-up combined with spit and sawdust alt-country lyricism is a “win-win” (GUARDIAN), as sold-out crowds across the UK have attested. Fans keep returning because this show goes where other comedians wouldn’t dare: Barrow-in-Furness for example.
