Tickets £10 – Buy Now!

For the Easter Bank Holiday Special we bring you an egg-cellent line up, three cracking comedians in an egg-stravaganza of … oh, you get the idea.

Justin Moorhouse is a comedian, actor, writer and radio presenter. On TV he is most recognisable as Young Kenny in the hugely successful, award-winning ‘Phoenix Nights’ spending the whole of the second series with his face painted as a tiger. More recently, he delivered a car to Sally on Coronation Street.

He is on the radio in Manchester every afternoon on KEY 103 doing TeaTime between 4 and 7, and he is recording a brand new Radio 4 sitcom called ‘Everyone Quite Likes Justin’ with Anne Reid, Paul Copley, Lloyd Langford, Katherine Kelly and Sally Lindsay.

Although not very good at juggling or triple jump, he has supported such stand-up luminaries as Jimmy Carr and Peter Kay, as well as playing to sell out audiences with his own solo shows.

One of the brightest stars working on the British comedy circuit, his exuberant, larger than life personality and cheeky northern charm quickly built a reputation on the live comedy circuit.

Dan has been one of our favourite acts at the Hyena Lounge since the first time we watched him perform almost ten years ago.

You haven’t seen him on ‘Mock The Week’, or ‘Have I Got News’, he believes that stand-up should only be experienced live. He is widely regarded as one of the best compares in the country – instinctively able to read a room a pitch his performance accordingly, brilliantly witty, quick-thinking and spontaneous.

This week you get to see him open up for a full set, if you miss it – you will be missing a treat. His observational material, from the standpoint of a middle-class modern man grappling with ambiguities the average Nuts-reading lad doesn’t have, is solidly funny with an undeniable ring of truth.

Benny Boot’s mind is a fecund and strange place where beautiful gags blossom and bear ripe comedy fruit. His fast paced, surreal, off beat comedy keeps the laughter rolling through the entire show and is guaranteed to bring any audience undone.

The gigglesome Aussie comic has spent six years on the UK comedy circuit, taking his first solo show ‘Set Up, Punchline … Pause For Laughter’ to the Edinburgh Festival this year.
