Katia Kvinge: 140 Karakters

Katia Kvinge: 140 Karakters

At the start of her show Katia Kvinge explains the combination of cultures which has helped make her the person she is today.

LetLuce in Sea Men (A Naval Tale)

LetLuce in Sea Men (A Naval Tale)

Simon Caine: Buddhism and Cats

Simon Caine: Buddhism and Cats

If you got your idea of adulthood from F.r.i.e.n.d.s but reality hasn't met expectations, if you fail to be in the moment and find yourself living through your phone, and if you feel connected online and profoundly disconnected from people offline, this is the show for you. 

Becky Brunning and Bethan Roberts Are Not Men

Becky Brunning and Bethan Roberts Are Not Men

Double bill from these award-winning (non boy) comedians. Becky (Stand Up and Get Heard Winner, Funny Woman Finalist 2013), creepy and adorable in equal measure. ‘Becky came out with one of my favourite lines of the year’ (Adam Bloom)...

Joy is the Enemy of Progress

Joy is the Enemy of Progress

Are you happy? No, of course not. You’re not supposed to be. The only human beings who're truly happy sit around the war memorial drinking shoe polish.
