The Coastal Comedy Show on Friday the 27th of October with TV headliner Andy Askins!
As seen on: The John Bishop Show! (BBC1)
Enjoy a top night of stand-up comedy in Bournemouth’s favourite comedy club and finalist for the ‘Best Night Out’ 2017.
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.
“ALTHOUGH HE LOOKS MILD-MANNERED AND STUDIOUS, HE ACTUALLY PACKS A WRY, CHEEKY WIT. THERE IS, MOST DEFINITELY, SOMETHING WARMLY ALLURING ABOUT HIM. HIS WINNING PERSONA GOES A LONG WAY.” Chortle
Plus top support acts and hosted by resident MC Adrienne Coles this is sure to be a fantastic night of live entertainment and not to be missed, all for just £12. Call the Box Office to reserve yours on: 01202 316316. More about Andy Askins:

Tony Law is Canadian and known for his highly surreal material and delivery, and eclectic historical style of dress, favouring boots with turned-up jeans and a Viking/explorer style of hair. Many of his stand-up routines are ingeniously ad-lib and built around various subjects that he has thought of, but not planned a routine about.
'One of the finest and funniest comics on the circuit... destined for comedy stardom' (Time Out)
'Form-busting and hugely enjoyable' (The Times)
'Clever and blithely zany' (The Daily Telegraph)
'An ever-changing, hard-to-contain, force of nature' (The Guardian)
Opening the show is Joe Wells: "Joe Wells is a skilled jokesmith who threads great gags through intelligent political material that, whilst razor-sharp, is never particularly angry or dark. As the first gags open up into smarter, topical ones it's clear that this is a tightly-structured, well thought-out set. Excellent jokes and sly political comment wrapped tightly in a neat parcel which delivers regular, powerful laughs from a delighted audience. “ British Comedy Guide
"A star of the future... some of the most surprising and thought-provoking material coming from any comedian" The Guardian
“Highly original, inspired and suitably different from the rest of the crowd… brilliantly crafted jokes” Comedy Central

“I laughed and I laughed and laughed…” The Times “Expect a cavalcade of brilliantly inventive puns” The Guardian “Razor sharp one-liners” Daily Telegraph

Gary is widely regarded as being the most quotable one-liner comic in the country. He projects the barely hidden delight of a cheeky schoolboy and the audience can’t help but be carried along by his infectious charm.
Gary’s the only comic ever to have got two gags in the same top 10 for Dave’s TV Funniest Jokes from the Edinburgh Fringe, and has become one of the most followed and quoted comedians in the country.
He has also written extensively for TV and Radio including 8 Out Of 10 Cats and 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown, A League Of Their Own, 10’Clock Live, The British Comedy Awards and The News Quiz.
That’s not all! Opening the show is the hilarious Dana Alexander as seen on Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC2) and one of Canada’s most outspoken and hilarious comics. Dana's comedic style is both refreshing and irreverent, drawing her material from her diverse lifestyle, her gay friends and her crazy Jamaican family. Adept, charming and astute, she is warmly funny with an impishly sarcastic sense of humour.

The Coastal Comedy New Year Special!
We bring you the sensational Tanyalee Davis. As seen on:
The John Bishop Show (BBC1)
Live at the Apollo (BBC2) and many more!
Come and celebrate the festive season with us and enjoy a top night of live entertainment in Bournemouth’s favourite comedy club.
At 3’6″, Tanyalee is the Ferrari of comedy – low to the ground and kind of racy. Canadian born, Tanyalee inspires, enlightens, and entertains her audiences and is making the stage her home by touring all over the world and bringing the funny!
Tanyalee’s perception of people, and how they perceive her, exaggerates the humour of life’s “little” tasks and routines. Tanyalee has made a small yet significant dent in the entertainment scene thus far, What she lacks in height she makes up in tenacity. Known as “the little lady with a lot of BIG laughs.”
“A master of physical punctuation” THE LAS VEGAS SUN
“Touch you, amaze you, entertain you hugely, cleverly crafted, Tanyalee is a punch-packing standup” THE SCOTSMAN
“Tanyalee Davis is simply one of the funniest people I know. She has a unique view of the world and if you haven't seen her I urge you to go, sit back, relax and laugh.” JOHN BISHOP
Tanyalee is supported by Anthony Dewson who has shared the stage with some of the UK’s finest comedians including Harry Hill, Michael McIntyre, Frank Skinner, Micky Flanagan and Lee Mack.
Ant passed his Grade 6 piano exam when he was 14 – and he hasn’t got any better since then! Classical music’s loss was comedy’s gain, and Ant now puts his limited skills to good use performing silly songs at comedy clubs up and down the country.
Hosted by resident MC Adrienne Coles plus top support acts. 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.
