27th October – Andrew Bird, Dave Johns & Phil Ellis

Andrew Bird’s beautifully observed and insightful comedy is effortlessly engaging and funny as hell. With an undercurrent of wisdom, hope and self-acceptance his material is always funny and frequently hilarious, but it is his personal charm that makes it so special.

He is a great storyteller and a natural comedian, if you were down the pub he would be cracking company.

Tour support for Rhod Gilbert in 2010 & 2011 and comedy writer on Jason Manford’s ‘Comedy Rocks’, Andrew Bird has established himself as one of the best young comedians in the UK.








Dave Johns is a stalwart of the comedy circuit and has gained a well deserved and enviable reputation as an inventive, exciting and highly entertaining comedian.

He can shift from the sublime, to genius, to uproar in the blink of an eye and his sense of fun on stage is extremely engaging. His unaffected manner and boundless energy generate sparks of magic, he loves every performance almost as much as the audience.

His numerous television appearances include ‘Never Mind The Buzzcocks’, ‘The Harry Hill Show’




Phil Ellis has a natural and instantly engaging style that has proved to be a hit with audiences and he has established a reputation as a unique and exciting act.

He has co-written three critically acclaimed short comedy films called ‘Phil’s ill’ for the channel ‘Dave’, receiving ‘pick of the day’ in The Times and The Guardian.

He has more than enough likeable energy to overcome the technical failings of a bill with only one Geordie in it, as he flits around the audience with his frisky, easy banter spreading a feeling of good-humoured fun.
