Russell Kane - Right Man, Wrong Age

russell-kaneThursday 6 October 2016

Are you 16-years-old, yet feel 21? Are you 40, but tragically faking 25? Or maybe you're full-on 80 years, with the heart of three oxen and the sex drive of a bonobo chimp. Don't worry: this is normal. No one is ever the 'right' age - it's is the beauty and the curse of being a real person. In this brand new show, Russell Kane unleashes another blisteringly-funny, award-winning stand-up performance about growing up, growing down, and why farts will always be funny.

The multi-award winning comedian, presenter, actor, author and scriptwriter is best known as the host of three series of BBC3's Live At The Electric, regular appearances on BBC1's Live At Apollo, BBC3's Unzipped, ITV2's Celebrity Juice and I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! Now! Russell was nominated four times for prestigious Edinburgh Comedy Awards before winning Best Show in 2010. He made history as the first comedian to win both the Edinburgh Award and Melbourne Comedy Festival's Barry Award in one year. Famed for his critically acclaimed tours Russell has been performing sell-out shows across the globe and now he is back with this brand new show!

Mark Steel – Who do I think I am?

mark-steelThursday 20 October 2016

It never really bothered me that I'd never met my mum. It never occurred to me I needed to meet her to 'find out who I was', as it didn't seem likely I'd discover I was someone different to who I thought I was. Could it turn out I was three stone lighter than I thought, or I spoke Italian or supported Arsenal or had a fear of Liquorice Allsorts?

Don't miss Mark Steel's new stand up show, a surprising and enthralling story told with aplomb. Mark has written and presented Mark Steel's In Town on BBC Radio 4 and toured it around the UK. He presented the BAFTA nominated Mark Steel Lectures for BBC2, is a regular on BBC1's Have I Got News For You and Radio 4's Newsquiz. He's also appeared on BBC2's QI and Room 101 and written several books, including: Reasons To Be Cheerful and What's Going On. Last year he won Columnist of the Year at the Press Awards. Part of Rochdale Literature & Ideas Festival.

Navi - King of Pop

navi-king-of-popSaturday 4 February 2017

There are several tribute shows to Michael Jackson currently performing around the world, but only ONE will have you believing for just a moment... The Legend Continues.

This superb production stars 'Navi' who is officially recognised as the world's No.1 MJ impersonator. He is also the only tribute ever to be chosen by Michael Jackson himself. Michael selected Navi to perform at two of his birthday parties and actually gave him a standing ovation. Michael also invited Navi to spend a day at his home 'Neverland'. The pair remained close and Navi was often hired to act as Michael's decoy/body double due to his uncanny resemblance to the star.

Navi has since continued to work at the highest level and has performed in a whopping 57 different countries. Along with his incredible live band and dancers, he is currently taking UK theatres by storm and once again raising the bar in the MJ tribute world with his thrilling new show.

Don't miss King Of Pop – The Legend Continues as Navi brilliantly recreates all the magical classics from the early Jackson 5 songs to mega-hits such as Thriller and Smooth Criminal in a night out the whole family will enjoy.

Doors 7.30 pm, shows starts at 8pm
