Comedy Club with Justin Moorhouse, Ignacio Lopez, Jack Carroll & Matt Read

Established in 2001 and featuring four stand up comedians, the HiFi’s Comedy Club is Leeds’ finest independent Stand-Up Comedy event and has been the launch pad for so many Stand-Up comedians over the years with the likes of Alan Carr, Paul Sinha, John Bishop, Katherine Ryan, Reginald D Hunter, Tom Stade, Jason Manford, Jon Richardson, Sarah Millican, Daliso Chaponda, Russell Howard & Chris Ramsey all calling the venue home during the early days of their careers.

Jinkx Monsoon & Major Scales: Together Again, Again!

It’s been forty-five years since Jinkx Monsoon and Major Scales have set foot on stage together. The long-endured cabaret duo have long since gone their separate ways; Jinkx becoming a faded TV movie starlet, and Major fading into musical obscurity— each of them clinging onto what scraps of fame they still have. Now, after decades of anticipation, the two of them have come together for one final reunion upon the stage. They’re together again, again!

Hal Cruttenden: It's Best You Hear It From Me

Hal is going back on the road with a brand-new show, doing what he does best – reminding us of how much we love stand-up comedy, and God do we need it! Not as much as we needed the vaccine, although Hal would probably say he’s equally as important.

His previous sell-out tour Chubster was extended four times and has only added to Hal’s uncontrollable ego, but it does mean that it’s always good to book early.

From Live at the Apollo, Bake Off: Extra Slice, Have I Got News For You, Mock The Week and The Royal Variety Performance.

Rob Newman: Philosophy Show

In this all-new show, multi-award winning stand-up comic Rob Newman weaves together Nietzsche’s sunglasses, James Bond in Toxteth, electric spiders and singing Neanderthals into a hilarious tour-de-force that offers new hopes for a changing world.

★★★★
‘Hugely entertaining, gleefully jaunty and refreshingly intelligent… I loved it.’
Guardian

‘He is one amazing comedian’
Time Out

‘Intellectually charged and adorably ambitious…a delightfully digestible dose of brain food’
Times

Crooners

Crooners comes to Leeds with a brand new comedy musical that brings the British song and dance man back to the main theatre stage.

This comedy musical is a collaboration between comedy writer and performer, Roman Marek, and one of the UK’s most prolific modern swing bands The Mini Big Band. They are on a mission to lead a return to the British Variety shows of the past and celebrate this very British genre.

Matt Chorley: Who Is In Charge Here?

Matt Chorley has spent the past 15 years in Westminster seeing up close how politics works, or doesn’t. After the sell-out success of his first tour This Is Not Normal, the award-winning Times columnist and Times Radio presenter is back with an hilarious new show exploring who really calls the shots. Is the Prime Minister actually in charge, or at the mercy of the opposition, backbenchers, lobbyists, the media, spin doctors, his wife, or the Queen?

Josh Berry & Rafe Hubris

Josh Berry: Who Does He Think He Is?

Josh Berry will mock people who went to slightly more prestigious private schools than him and whinge about his career for the best part of forty minutes. Josh will also probably do some impressions in this time even though he pretends to be artistically above all that stuff now.

Josh Berry? Fair play man, fair play’

‘Absolutely superb’

‘A remarkable new talent’

Lou Sanders - One Word: WOW

It’s me again, your old internet friend Dr Giggles.
It’s time for a little get together; so pull up a chair, get all cosy and let me tell you about the time I gave this horse a boner. I’ll bring my skates, you bring your wallet and we’ll all take some piccies.
Maybe this show is the real vaccine? 😉
