“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 incredibly talented Ria Lina who’s charm and intelligence allow her to get away with anything from the most audacious routines to subtle wordplay.
Ria is Winner of Best Comedy Show at the Greater Manchester Fringe and Nominated for the Amused Moose Laughter Awards at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and we are excited to bring her to Bournemouth.
“I have no doubt she will hold her own so easily that she’ll have a hand free to hold someone else’s too.” The Guardian
“Fearless, provocative and very funny” The Scotsman
“Engaging, endearing and eye-opening” Time Out
Also there’s a special appearance as we welcome back JennyBSide winner of our Gong Show! JennyBSide brings Gender Fluid Musical Comedy to Bournemouth with full force.
Quickfire songs that combine her own brand of Trollopop with a sprinkle of Minchin and a dash
of darkness to desensitise. Joyously wrong and contrary to popular belief not a Drag Act.
Hosting the show is our resident MC Adrienne Coles and we look forward to seeing you there!

Sean honed his unique, storytelling style over 18 years. In 2000, his hard work and determination led to his receiving two prestigious Canadian Comedy Award nominations for 'Best Male Stand Up' and for his half hour 'Comic's Comedy Special' on CBC.
Fuelled by the desire to play to a more international audience, Sean left Canada for the UK and, within the five years that he has resided in Britain, he has written and performed three highly successful Edinburgh Festival shows, receiving rave, five star reviews and one of only a few ‘Best of Fest’ accolades.
"He has perfected the art of entertaining digression without ever losing a thread … first class" Chortle
Supporting Sean is Jake Lambert who fell into a career as a stand up, after gaining a following on Twitter under the pseudonym @LittleLostLad he decided to put down his iPhone and pick up a microphone.
Jake has gone on to support Seann Walsh, Kerry Godliman, Tom Allen and Rob Beckett on their UK tours as well as writing on Mock The Week, 8 Out of 10 Cats, The Now Show, News Quiz and many more.
In 2018 he made his TV debut performing on Comedy Central’s Live From The Comedy Store and we look forward to welcoming him to Bournemouth.
Also appearing on the night is the hilarious Sunjai Arif "Bath Comedy Festival New Act 2017" Winner! Sunjai quickly wins over audiences with his confidence and warm personality.
