Coastal Comedy presents the incredible Paul Thorne as seen on:

The Stand Up Show (BBC1)

The Comedy Store (Comedy Central) and many more!  

“A must-see comedian” The Guardian

“Amiable cheekiness and easy banter make him a hit with audiences…masterfully delivered” chortle

Paul Thorne is a topical comedian, whose finely crafted material and quirky songs have made him one of the UK’s most sought-after stand-up talents. Well respected headliner and skilful compere, Paul is also a regular member of The Comedy Store’s Cutting Edge team; performing material based on the week’s news in this prestigious long-running topical show.

A wonderfully assured performer, Paul’s provocative topical gags; spontaneous wit, and surreal comedy songs have earned him a reputation as a quality live performer. 

Kicking off this top night of entertainment is Joey Page. Joey is eccentric and he is somewhat of an undiscovered sparkling gem. Magical swirling surreal comedy. An antidote to the woes of the world, Joey takes you through the tangled joy of his charmingly childlike logic. Creating a world of uniquely offbeat characters and tall tales of fancy.

"Joey Page is brilliantly inventive and imaginative and very funny" Josie Long

"This innately likeable young man has an instinct for funny" Chortle

Also appearing for your laughing pleasure is Jules Oliver who has been a finalist in 5 National New Act Competitions and most recently awarded runner up at Old Comedian of the Year (35+) at Leicester Square Theatre.

She regularly performs all over the country and likes to cover a range of subjects including: Concorde and falconry but also mainstream topics like Asda’s policy for naming their ranges (badly in her opinion).

'Jules Oliver offers some original ideas and witty lines from an unpretentious, but slightly odd, vantage point, mixing observational comedy with the absurd' Chortle

This show is hosted by local comic Adrienne Coles CEO of Coastal Comedy who are finalists for the ‘Best Night Out’ category of the Bournemouth and Poole Tourism Awards 2018 (BAPTAs). Come and enjoy a top night of live entertainment in our intimate setting at Hotel Celebrity, Bournemouth.

The Coastal Comedy Christmas Special!

Star of BBC Radio 4’s Tez Talks and seen on
Mock the Week (BBC2)
Live at the BBC (BBC2)
Man Like Mobeen (BBC3)

Tez Ilyas hit the ground running in his first year as a stand-up comedian finding himself in no less than eight competition finals. Since then he has achieved phenomenal success with his debut stand up hour TEZ Talks, enjoyed a sell out run at the Soho Theatre and had his own Radio 4 series. 

Tez has had a few years storming Edinburgh with his solo shows, but in recent months you will have seen him on Live At The BBC, Chris Ramsay's Stand Up Central, Mock The Week and most recently Comedy Central's Roast Battles.

 ★★★★ ‘Ilyas has a slickness more reminiscent of US comics, and the gags to back it up, though his most prized asset could yet be his bold, subversive streak’  The Guardian
Learn more about Tez here

 Opening the show is the hilarious Mike Cox who has quickly made his mark on the comedy circuit with his sharp wit and everyday cynicism which have seen him crowned winner of the Fosters South Coast Comedian of the Year, while he reached the final of Amused Moose Laugh Off 2016 both the semi-finals of So You Think You're Funny in 2012 and The Leicester Square New Comedian of the Year in 2013.

 Mike’s accessible style and ease with both mainstream and alternative audiences currently make him one of the most enjoyable young comics to watch.

“Like an Everyman, if that Everyman had delicious cynicism and razor sharp wit” - Romesh Ranganathan.

Plus top support acts, the night is hosted by Adrienne Coles. Come and celebrate the festive season with us and enjoy a great night of live entertainment in Bournemouth’s favourite comedy club.

The New Year Special! 

With TV headliner Andy Askins!

As seen on: The John Bishop Show! (BBC1)

Celebrate the new year with us and enjoy a top night of stand-up comedy in Bournemouth’s favourite comedy club and finalist for the ‘Best Night Out’ in Bournemouth and Poole 2018.

Here’s some blurb about our Andy:

Andy Askins is a diminutive figure who exudes an air of vulnerability as he steps up to the microphone armed with a guitar and a cheeky grin. It’s an overwhelmingly misleading demeanour which serves to heighten the impact of the killer lines that he delivers.

Andy has an expertly crafted routine littered with an eclectic mix of offbeat original comic songs and parodies. A talented musician with a captivating voice, popular songs have been re-written and given a perverse twist to tremendous comic effect. With a wickedly dry sense of humour, Andy’s darker material is sweetened by his innocent and impish demeanour which never fails to leave audiences in the palm of his hand.

Since becoming a full-time comedian back in 2005. He has previously had the honour of working with Michael McIntyre, Lee Evans, Alan Carr, Jimmy Carr, Micky Flanagan, Harry Hill, Rhod Gilbert, Bill Bailey and Jack Dee, to name a few stand-up luminaries.


Opening the show is Colin Cole! Colin is literally one of the biggest names in comedy in Australia - not only is he 6' 7", he is also known for his hugely dynamic performance. 

Big, bold and dominating, this fantastically likeable Australian has audiences loving his performances all over the world. Every punch-line Cole produces is a gem, a highly skilled and experienced performer.

Plus top support acts and hosted by resident MC Adrienne Coles. Advance tickets are £15 from the Box Office on 01202 316316 or online (£20 on the door). VIP tickets are limited and £20 each, booked via the Box Office only.
