Sunday 17th September - Comedy at The Edge: Mark Watson

8pm £17

After more than 100 dates on the road in 2016 with his best-reviewed show to date, ‘I’m Not Here’, and a similarly marathon effort with the previous tour, Mark Watson is amazed to find there are STILL some areas of the country he’s not visited much, and some towns that have been neglected altogether. It’s hard to be everywhere at once, so he’s narrowed it down to a sensible plan: for the next tour, Watson will only visit places beginning with M or W, his initials – as they’ve already shown a commitment by having those names in the first place. A few of these will be favourite old haunts like Winchester or Manchester, but quite a few of them are the result of Googling and quite a number are so remote that we won’t know they definitely exist until we get there. Also, some aren’t actually towns so much as trains (from Marylebone to Wycombe), or ferries (across the Mersey), or a helicopter museum (in the double-point-scoring Middle Wallop).

The material will be a mixture of the classic and the never-before-seen. And in some cases a fair bit of it will be about being on a train.

Saturday 25th November- Comedy at The Edge: Kerry Godliman

8.00 p.m. £15

Stick or Twist

Kerry Godliman is back on tour.  Her straight talking brand of quick wit and bewilderment will be covering more of life’s anomalies. Why is there a Buddha at the garden center? Why collect her children’s teeth?  And even though she can’t stand aubergines, why is it her favorite emoji? There’s loads to get sorted. Be there. She’ll do all the talking.

Both an incredibly talented comedian and a phenomenal actor, Kerry is best known for her appearances on BBC’s Live At The Apollo, Mock The Week, Jack Dee’s Referendum HelpDesk, Channel 4’s Derek and Comedy Gala in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital’. Kerry is also a regular on Radio 4 with appearances on the esteemed News Quiz, The Now Show and Just A Minute as well as her own series Kerry’s List. Kerry is currently starring in the Sky 1 series Carters Get Rich.
