It's our Halloween Spooktacular, with our usual Meetup Discount on the door. Or if you're feeling truly brave, feel free to come in fancy dress and we'll let you in half price or FREE if your costume is really good (as decreed by our judging panel! ;)
Wes entertains with his hilarious and anarchic physical comedy routines and is easily one of the most exciting and original acts on the comedy and cabaret circuit. Mad as a box of badgers, Zaharuk raises the roof with his physical interactive comedy. A rip-roaring jump into the surreal. If you like to laugh you won't want to miss this comic in action. Come and see Wes, but expect the unexpected. We guarantee you would not have seen household objects used in the way Wes uses them before.
An absolute must see.
Alistair is a member of The Cutting Edge team at London's Comedy Store and has made numerous radio and television appearances across the world. A regular at festivals, he has taken six solo shows to the Edinburgh Fringe and written on several shows for the BBC, Channel 4 and Radio 4 and for a number of other comedians. He is presently working on 'No Pressure to be Funny,' a monthly topical show and podcast at the Soho Theatre, with LBC's James O'Brien and former Perrier nominee Nick Revell,
Nish started performing stand-up in 2006 and has been one half of double act, ‘The Gentlemen of Leisure’ since 2009. Starting out with two acclaimed runs at the Durham review at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2006 & 2007, Nish went on to appear in 2008’s ‘Coolfun’ show for the Free Fringe Stand-up mixed bill alongside Josie Long which was featured on BBC Online. Most recently Nish has returned from the Edinburgh Fringe Festival where he took his debut solo show, ‘Who Is Nish Kumar?’ receiving a plethora of brilliant reviews and earning him a spot in the top ten of Channel Dave’s ‘Ten Funniest Jokes of the Fringe’. This year he brought another sell-out show to the fringe: 'Nish Kumar is a Comedian'. We couldn't agree more.
Nick has crafted a unique and distinctive style. He masterfully combines acerbic wit and intelligent, edgy writing with vulnerability and self-deprecation to winning effect. His sharp writing is complemented with scrupulously perfected timing and an assured delivery. We're happy to have him back!

And your host for the evening is Sean Brightman
Sean was a semi-finalist in 2010's So You Think You're Funny Competition. In 2011 he was shortlisted for the BBC New Comedy Awards. Then in 2012 he reached the final of the Piccadilly Comedy Club competition where Chortle reviewed him as "Happy", one of the more positive words used in that particular review. He regularly performs and hosts comedy shows all over. He doesn't like competitions, aside from spot the ball.
Most recently he has received a four star review from Three Weeks for his Edinburgh 2013 show: 'Phillip and Marjorie's Marriage Preparation Course for Regular People and The Gays'
