The Coastal Comedy Christmas Special with TV headliner Andrew Lawrence!

As seen on:
Live at the Apollo (BBC2)
The Michael McIntrye Comedy Roadshow (BBC1) and many more!

One of Britain’s most subversive and intelligent comedians, Andrew Lawrence, has been the winner of many awards and nominations for his comedy including winning The BBC New Comedy Award, and being twice nominated for The Fosters Edinburgh Comedy Award. On television he has appeared on Live At The Apollo, The Michael McIntyre Comedy Roadshow, Dave’s One Night Stand and as a regular on Stand Up For The Week.

Andrew can regularly be seen live touring around the UK, as well as a at the Edinburgh fringe festival and you can see him live at the Lighthouse as part of our Christmas show!

“Superbly intelligent, highly articulate and deeply sour” The Spectator
“His show is funny. Lawrence’s material is dark and deeply self-deprecating, bitter and somehow managing to be both biting and tongue in cheek.” The Scotsman

Opening the show is the hilarious Jim Campbell who has been busy with a chart-topping podcast, an acclaimed book and his personal life exploding. Everyone was right though; it’s good for material. 

 “Charmingly fresh... an hour in Campbell's company will leave you entertained and enlightened” The List ****

Also appearing for your laughing pleasure is George Rigden who is already one of the most exciting, hotly-tipped and sought after new acts on the UK comedy circuit and frequently gigs up and down the country for leading clubs having excelled in a host of new act competitions in his first year of performing.

Rigden’s musical comedy is deliciously dark...he is very good at working the crowd." - Bruce Dessau, beyond the joke.

The night is hosted by local comic Adrienne Coles.  Come and celebrate the festive season with a top night of comedy with 3 great acts, plus host, put together by award winning Coastal Comedy, right here at Lighthouse. You can bring your friends too and laugh your socks off, its better than staying in front of the telly.
