Count Binface: In Conversation on Earth

Count Binface is Earth’s leading intergalactic politician, a campaigner for competitively priced croissants, and officially London’s 9th choice to be mayor. Now he is taking on his greatest challenge yet - not usurping Liz Truss (that will be easy) but taking on Richard Osman in the book charts. Binface is launching his debut book, What On Earth?, and to celebrate publication day he is appearing in conversation with acclaimed political commentator Ayesha Hazarika, in front of a select audience of humans, to unveil his alien’s guide to fixing Britain. ‘Always funny. Always surprising.’ (Armando Iannucci) ‘Count Binface in his steely, glimmering elusiveness is both a galactically intimidating and a curiously heartening symbol of the future of British politics.’ (Rory Stewart)

Al Murray the Pub Landlord "A campfire tale of hope, dreams and failures with a lesson for us all – if it’s fun, it’s worth doing." Entertainment-Now "Charmingly Ramshackle Catnip." David Hepburn The Scotsman "All the fun of youthful dreams and the poignancy of disappointment – plus a remarkable A-list cameo. Magnificent" (Guardian). "Hilarious warts-and-all story of a Britpop band whose big ambitions did not meet their talents" (CNJ).

Aidan & Robbie: Growing Lads

With a top hat from a junk shop and mail-order wand, pioneering storyteller and writer Sally Pomme Clayton explores the secret world of the magician. In this intimate, enchanting performance she mixes fact with fiction, fragments of myth with antique jokes, dazzling fairytales with snippets of science, forgotten folklore with mysterious images on tarot cards.

She combines bewitching spoken word with strange musical sounds, an old suitcases and a magical puzzle that each member of the audience can take home! The performance asks why apprentices have always been depicted as female and magicians male? Then turns magic on its head with the story of the most powerful female magician of all, Elena the Wise. In this slight-of-hand world objects talk, girls become doves, the magician goes mad and you can enter another world! Join Pomme as she opens her suitcase, finds smoke and mirrors, and sets off on a fairytale quest to discover what is real, what's illusion, who is the apprentice and who's the teacher?

Stuart Laws: Putting Zoo

It's putting as in golf, not to move or place in a particular position. Stuart is an observational comedian who doesn't fully understand what he's observed. This is a new show that will presumably continue in this tradition: "The classic Laws tropes are all here: the wearing of the gilet and the constant mispronunciation of a word to the point where you end up believing that to be the correct way to say it." - The List

Rob Copland: MAINSTREAM MUCK (Gimme some of that)

Returning from Edinburgh with a trophy in his hand for ‘Best Show’ in the Comedians Choice Awards and four star reviews across the board, Rob Copland is well and truly Gobsmacked. He thrashed about like a fish out of water and the people seemed to enjoy it! The show involves some high energy loud bits, quiet reflective bits, funny bits, not as funny bits (but still funny), long winded bits that are worth the journey (most of the time), clearly not true bits (but who cares it’s art, dude), hiding behind the curtain bits (classic Rob Copland) and dancing like you just don’t care bits (get stuck in). “Rob has the makings of a cult hit” - The Wee Review "Rob is one of a kind, truly original and incredibly silly" - The British Comedy Guide So get yourselves down to the river bank to see what all the fuss is about.
