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.

Enjoy a fantastic night out and get to see TV Headliner Ben Norris Live:
As seen on:
They Think It's All Over (BBC1)
Mock the Week (BBC2)
Never Mind the Buzzcocks (BBC2)

Ben has been performing on the comedy circuit since 1993  and has recently been supporting Ed Byrne on his national tour. He has appeared on a range of different television shows, is a regular at The Comedy Store, and 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
"Truly a sight to behold" - Ed Byrne 

Opening the show is funny man Pete Philipson who has been building a name for himself on the circuit as a fantastically funny act over the last few years, mixing fast paced observations and routines with wonderful characterisations. Pete is able to command an audience as well as he commands a variety of accents, wearing his comedy heart on his sleeve and leaving the audience in hysterics at his misfortunes and frustrations with the minutiae of everyday life,

Due to popular demand we also bring back the Coastal Comedy Gong Show! A variety of new acts will perform and the winner will win £50 and a spot at another Coastal Comedy show! The audience do the voting for this and it’s a really fun part of the show as well as helping to promote new talent.

The night is hosted by local comic Adrienne Coles.  Come and enjoy a night of top comedy put together by award winning Coastal Comedy, right here at Hotel Celebrity, Bournemouth. You can bring your friends too and laugh your socks off, its better than staying in front of the telly.

The Coastal Comedy Show with TV headliner Bobby Mair!

As seen on 8 out of 10 Cats (C4)

Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC2)

Never Mind the Buzzcocks (BBC2)  and many many more!

Our Coastal Comedy shows are known to be hilarious nights out and this show will be no exception!

Bobby Mair is a Canadian stand-up comedian based in London. After he won the Laughing Horse New Act of The Year competition in 2012 his comedy career took right off! He has recently starred in the reality sitcom Bobby and Harriet Get Married for Viceland. He is also appearing on the upcoming Comedy Central’s Roast Battle and in February is embarking on a 26 city tour of the UK culminating in 3 nights at Soho Theatre. 

 'Bobby Mair is clearly a brilliant stand up. He's either going to be a huge international comedy star or the funniest homeless man ever.'  Jimmy Carr

Opening the show is Irish comedian Eleanor Tiernan who abandoned her civil engineering training to become a stand-up in 2004 and within her first year appeared on RTE’s The Liffey Laughs and BBC’s One Night Stand.

In 2007, she starred in the Edinburgh Fringe play Help!, and made her solo show debut the following year. She then played to more than 120,000 people as the support act for her cousin, Tommy Tiernan, on his Bovinity tour. Eleanor has also supported Stewart Lee and Reginald D Hunter and we can’t wait to welcome her to Coastal Comedy.

Also appearing on the night is Richard James who was a finalist in Foster's South Coast Comedian of the Year competition. Along with a fondness for the absurd and the awkward details of life, Richard is an unashamed nerd for history and science fiction.  The material that he uses stretches from topical humour to bizarre family stories and he’s a great hit with the audience.

The night is hosted by local comic Adrienne Coles.  Come and enjoy a night of top comedy put together by award winning Coastal Comedy, right here at Hotel Celebrity, Bournemouth. You can bring your friends too and laugh your socks off, its better than staying in front of the telly.
