Sarah Millican: Homebird

Sarah Millican: Homebird Of…..

“Sarah Millican is never less than belly-laugh hilarious” The Mirror ”
An iron fist in a marigold glove.” The Guardian

The British Comedy Award’s Queen of Comedy Sarah Millican is giving up the party scene (Ann Summers), easing off on the drinking (fizzy pop equals wealthy dentists) and is settling down (taking her bra off). Determined to put down some roots, she now has a cat (furry baby) and even a tree (she has a lot of mugs).

On this, her third national tour, you will learn what to take on a dirty weekend, the easiest way to blend in in posh restaurants and how to teach a pensioner to swear. Join her for some hilarious domestic bliss.

The 6 Wives of Henry VIII

The 6 Wives of Henry VIII

Two Actors. Too Many Characters. One Big Ego

Howard Coggins looks like Henry VIII. There’s no escaping that.

Stu McLoughlin doesn’t really look like any of the wives, but he’s going to give it a go.

With live original music, embroidery, Barbie dolls, silly songs and historical hysteria, this promises to be an ill-researched lesson in cross-dressing Tudor history that you’ll never forget.

Robert Newman’s New Theory of Evolution

Robert Newman’s New Theory of Evolution

“He is the funniest comedian I have ever seen…A passionate, chaotically brilliant comedian.” THE SUNDAY TIMES

Comedian, journalist, novelist and activist Rob Newman makes a hotly anticipated return to comedy with his first complete show in 7 years.

Rob describes the 150-year controversy in evolutionary theory and explores how the latest science demonstrates that DNA is not destiny. From a Devil’s Orchard made by lemon ants, to female buffalo voting which way to go, from Prince Kropotkin escaping a Tsarist dungeon to altruistic vampire bats and Richard Dawkins’ postman wrestling naked, Rob Newman argues that cooperation drives evolution more than competition.

Rob said: “Natural history is so full of freaky facts that when you tackle the complexity, you find that there is a wealth of detail, oodles of oddity which lend themselves to comedy.”

In the past 20 years Rob has performed five solo stand-up shows including From “Caliban to The Taliban (500 years of Humanitarian Intervention)” in (2003) and “Apocalypso Now” (2005) which was recorded and aired by More4 under the title A History of Oil.

He has also written regularly for The Guardian and Vice magazine, and produced four novels, his most recent being The Trade Secret which is due to be released in April 2013, published by Cargo/Cargo Crate.

His TV and radio credits include Robert Newman’s History of Oil (More4), History of the World Backwards (BBC Four), Newman & Baddiel In Pieces (BBC Two) and The Mary Whitehouse Experience (BBC Two).
