Our TV headliner is the incredibly funny Ben Norris who has appeared on a range TV shows including: Mock the Week (BBC2)  and They Think It's All Over (BBC1) and is a regular at the world famous Comedy Store and we are excited to bring him to the Lighthouse. Ben has developed an incredibly relaxed stage persona with an innate ability to improvise as well as deliver sharply crafted material.

"The term circuit legend is overused, but Norris is one of a handful that have been headlining for more than two decades and rarely departs a stage without leaving it torn to shreds in his wake. A master of the craft, this will be the most polished stand-up you are likely to see." GQ Magazine

"A cast iron guaranteed headliner" - Londonisfunny
 "Killer gags" - The Scotsman

Opening the show is the hilarious comedy magician Wayne the Weird - master of stupidity and nonchalance and a massive hit with any audience.

Wayne's comedic skills have seen him perform on stage internationally as well as all throughout the UK from comedy clubs, castles and bowling alleys to golf clubs, churches, and even Zippos Circus!

"Outrageous comedian and magician."  The Southern Daily Echo

"No one in the audience will ever look at rubber gloves and white rabbits in the same way again."  Creative Cows Comedy

Plus support from Andy Stedman who is a lively, likeable and versatile act.  Andy has a cheeky persona and his set is a lively and varied one, with a mix of songs, silly poems, jokes and audience interaction.

‘A charming, expert stand-up’ Sunday Times
Stuart Goldsmith is an internationally award-winning comedian, writer, podcaster and host.

Opening the show is the incredible Rick Kiesewetter.  Rick’s ingenious observational material includes anything from adoption to being a Londoner.

“Kiesewetter has plenty of national stereotypes to play on, but he soon steers clear of nationality clichés to deliver punchy observational gags about the little things that annoy everyone.” Evening Standard

Also performing for your laughing pleasure is the very talented Johnny Wardlow who was part of the BBC New Comedy Awards 3 years running! Johnny’s based in Brighton and has played clubs all over the UK and has also just returned from New York, where he performed at Caroline’s on Broadway & Comic Strip Live.
