Stephen Bailey: Can’t Be Bothered

Wed 30 Sep • 7:30pm • Full £15 Concs £11 • Comedy

Proudly Presented by Phil McIntyre Live Ltd

“An outrageous, hilarious hour of comedy. Stephen Bailey is a superstar in the making”.  British Comedy Guide

Stephen Bailey has made a name for himself for being a little gossip – but this year he’s grown up and decided to have a conversation with you (but a funny one – he’s still Channel 5’s darling) – about everything that is going on in the world.
Host of Channel 5’s Celebs on the Farm and off of shows such as ITV’s Coronation Street, ITV2’s The Stand Up Sketch Show, BBC2’s Live at the Apollo & The Apprentice: You’re Fired, it’s been a very big year for Stephen, he’s even bought a new microwave.
He’s the best mate you want to chat to at the pub and he thinks the world has gone mad. This show is bit of storytelling, some inappropriate anecdotes and more sincerity than he’s ever dared have! What more do you want? He’s basically Holly Willoughby.
Trigger warning – he does NOT mention Brexit. The government don’t know what to say so he certainly doesn’t. Radio 4 listeners still welcome.

“Stephen’s show was hilarious from the first line, and for the whole performance I don’t think a single joke died”   Voice Magazine
★★★★★ – Voice Magazine, Fringe Guru, One4Review
★★★★ – Sunday Express, The Herald, The Skinny, Scotsgay

Tiff Stevenson: Mother

Wed 28 Oct • 7:30pm • Full £14 Concs £12 • Comedy

Proudly Presented by PBJ Live

Tiff Stevenson (Mock The Week, 8 Out of Ten Cats, People Just Do Nothing, Game Face) squats and delivers her 2019 critically acclaimed solo show about the extreme sport of womanhood. Birthing her vision of the future before your eyes, how she hopes it will be… free from class war, poverty and consent issues. Also dragging the overdue spectre of what it is more likely to be: t-shirt feminism, Jordan Peterson and corporate wokeness from her loins. All without an epidural.

“This finally seems to be the year when feminist comedy is in fashion, with Jayde Adams and Catherine Bohart leading the charge. In a way, though, they’re playing catch-up to Tiff, who has spent an astonishing nine Fringes unapologetically puncturing the patriarchy.” ★★★★  Edinburgh Festival Mag

“Tiff Stevenson is one of the most important voices in comedy today. A thoroughly entertaining show from one of the best comedians you’ll see.” ★★★★★ Scotsgay
