In his new show 50 Things About Us Mark Thomas combines his trademark mix of storytelling, stand-up, mischief and really, really well researched material to examine how we have come to inhabit this divided wasteland that some of us call the United Kingdom.

Mark picks through the myths, facts and figures of our national identities to ask who do we think we are?

It is a show about money, history, songs, gongs, wigs, unicorns, guns, bungs, sods of soil and rich f*ckers.

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

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.

If you missed out on tickets for this show in 2018, or you just want one last chance to see the show again, Henning Wehn returns to Engine Shed in 2020 with his ‘Get On With It’ Tour!

You couldn’t make it up; surely the German Comedy Ambassador Henning Wehn hasn’t bosched out yet another new show? And what’s he still doing here anyway? Well, his lack of transferable skills is what keeps him here and his belief that practise makes perfect is what keeps him going.

This show is a much needed call to arms. Listen, everyone: stop pondering and hand-wringing. Instead get on your bike and put your face to the grindstone!

“As subtle as Schumacher on Battiston” some bloke on Twitter

“Die entgueltige Teilung Europas – das ist mein Auftrag” Henning himself

Following last year’s sell-out shows at the Edinburgh Festival, London’s Soho Theatre, national UK tour and at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, musical comedy sisters Flo & Joan have a new hour of their dark and waggish songs to parade about the place. 

“These intricately crafted, flawlessly performed numbers will have you howling with laughter one minute, wiping away a tear the next.” The Telegraph

‘Their style is stiletto sharp, their diction perfect as they race through their complex rhymes’ Evening Standard

“If Flanders & Swann and Flight of the Conchords and Garfunkel & Oates had a six-way time-travelling gang-bang that somehow mixed all their DNA, the offspring might end up sounding something like Flo and Joan.” Steve Bennett, Chortle

As seen on 8 Out Of 10 Cats does Countdown, Comedy Central’s Roast Battle & BBC’s upcoming TV show Good Omens. 

In 2019 if you want to be a ‘successful independent woman person’ you better have something you want to say and you better be wearing a Serious Black Jumper™. In her SBJ™ Jayde will rifle through all the noise and self-promotion and figure out what’s actually going on.

‘Britain’s Funniest Woman comic’ Daily Mail has put the sequins and showbiz in a box (for now), ‘She’s a star.’ said The Guardian after last years extravaganza – but if you want to be a successful woman in 2019 – it’s time to get serious. If pop stars, razors and even sausage rolls can attach themselves to important movements to sell themselves why can’t Jayde Adams?

Three-time Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee and very-hard-to-pin-down-indie-underdog-nightmare Josie Long is back with a brand new show after a brief hiatus, during which she had a baby and so on. 
It’s about the mind-bending intensity of new motherhood, but mostly about kindness, gentleness, and joy – all in all, the edgiest thing you will see this year. The aim is for you to come out of it feeling optimistic about the future, although that is a big ask. At the very least there will be some really silly voices in it, and that’s not nothing. 

**** Times “Brilliantly evocative, an original and unflagging spirit.”
