Friday 18th October - Henry Paker: Man Alive / UK Tour 2019

7.30pm £12

Star of Comedy Central at the Comedy Store, Josh (BBC3) and co-writer and star of Radio 4’s Small Scenes, Henry’s latest show is a unique mixture of stand-up comedy and illustration which took the Edinburgh Fringe by storm.

A delightfully twisty and turny hour in which Henry uses cartoons to tell a story about a lonely man who lives in a forest in a house full of clocks, alongside delivering stand-up routines about marriage, commuting and dark chocolate. Somewhere between a graphic novel, a stand-up show and a fairy tale.

‘An introvert’s fantasia….Paker exceeds your expectations in a wonderfully ingenious way’ **** The Times

**** The Skinny

‘A quirky, touching piece of comedy, clever enough to work on a number of levels which leave audience members each with a different favourite moment’ 4 stars, The Skinny

***** (5 stars) Edinburgh Festivals Magazine

“A natural born comedian” Michael McIntyre.

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.

**** The Guardian

**** The Independent ‘essential viewing’

**** Sunday Times ‘Profound yet funny’

**** The Scotsman ‘Frank, dryly funny’
