Friday 7th February - Comedy at The Edge: Paul McCaffrey - Lemon

8pm £12

As seen on Live At The Apollo.

In this hilarious new stand up show, McCaffrey struggles to get to grips with technology, being spied on by the Chinese, idiotic self-help books and setting fire to his oven gloves. The man is an absolute Lemon, funny though.

Most recently Paul has performed to over half a million people in supporting Kevin Bridges and Sean Lock on nationwide tours.

‘Born to be a Comic’ – The Scotsman

‘McCaffrey simply has funny bones’ – The Shortlist

‘The relaxed, assured confidence of a stadium filler’ – Chortle

Star of Live At The Apollo, BBC3’s Impractical Jokers and Russell Howard’s Good News, Comedy Central’s Stand Up Central. An accomplished radio presenter and guest, Paul has recently been heard on: talkSPORT, Absolute’s The Alternative Vote and Rob Beckett’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Football and BBC Radio 2’s Russell Kane’s Whistlestop Tour.

‘Charm, charisma and success written all over him’ – The Evening Standard

‘A total natural, his storytelling is utterly unique and never anything less than gut-bustlingly hilarious’ – GQ

Thursday 12th March - Comedy at The Edge: Mark Steel (14+)

8pm £15

EVERY LITTLE THING’S GONNA BE ALRIGHT

A few years ago, it seemed unlikely that the UK would vote to leave the EU; we had a reasonable opposition to the Tory Government; Donald Trump was a buffoon who surely wasn’t going to beat Hillary Clinton and Mark was living the married suburban ideal, since then it’s all gone to absolute shit! But don’t worry as Mark thinks Every Little Thing’s Gonna Be Alright.

Mark’s sell-out show Who Do I Think I Am, revealed his natural father was a world backgammon champion. Now the star of Radio 4’s Mark Steel’s in Town, and newspaper columnist of the year is touring a show which is guaranteed to make the world seem even more mental than it is.

Mark has written and presented many series of Mark Steel’s In Town on BBC Radio 4 (new series out soon) and toured it live around the UK. Mark has presented the BAFTA nominated Mark Steel Lectures for BBC2, is a regular on BBC One’s Have I Got News For You and Radio 4’s The News Quiz. He’s also appeared on BBC2’s QI and Room 101. Mark has written several acclaimed books, including: Reasons To Be Cheerful and What’s Going On and he writes a weekly column for The Independent for which he won Columnist of the Year at the Press Awards in 2015.
