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.

The Coastal Comedy Show headlined by The Noise Next Door!

The UK’s premier improv comedy troupe have taken the comedy world by storm.

Eleven time sell-out veterans of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and one of the country’s most sought after comedy club headliners, The Noise Next Door leave audiences everywhere in awe of their lightning-quick wit and totally original comedic talents. They have been performing their own distinctive brand of off-the-cuff comedy together since they met at university.

Taking audience suggestions, the cheeky and charming quartet, transform them into fantastically funny scenes and songs in the blink of an eye with a perfect blend of ludicrous characters, witty one-liners, epic stories, and explosive physicality.

The Noise Next Door have appeared on BBC One, BBC Three, ITV1, BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 4, they were nominated for a Chortle Award in 2014, and have performed alongside the likes of Michael McIntyre, Al Murray, and Harry Hill.

Unstoppably funny and uniquely talented, The Noise Next Door are the next big thing in British comedy.

 “COMEDY GOLD” The Guardian


Plus top support from Maureen Younger who is performing in the best comedy clubs up and down the country.

“If you have been lucky enough to see her perform you will be fully aware of just how funny and infectious this woman is.” Time Out

Also performing for your laughing pleasure 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

The Coastal Comedy Show with TV headliner Jo Caulfield!
As seen on:
Mock The Week (BBC2)
Have I Got News For You (BBC1)
Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow (BBC1) and many many more! 

Whether you’ve seen her on TV shows such as “Have I Got News For You” or “Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow”, heard her on the radio on “Just a Minute” or “Stop The Press”, or caught her live at one of her award-winning Edinburgh Festival shows, the chances are you’re already familiar with Jo’s work.

Described by The Observer as “one of the finest female comics at work” and by The Scotsman as “quite simply, a damn funny woman” Jo can regularly be seen headlining the UK’s biggest and best comedy clubs. 

In 2018 Jo won the “SGFringe Stand-Up Comedy Award” and gained critical acclaim for her performance as Helena Brandt in the sell-out Fringe run of the play, Brexit and we are so honoured that she is going to grace our stage.

Opening the show is incredibly funny Canadian Chris Betts who’s mind is a curious place, where the philosophical meets the ridiculous. His performance is a perfect balance of incisive social satire and complete silliness.  He has a style that is equal parts confident, thoughtful, ridiculous and mischievous and his jokes have been included in The Telegraph’s top 20 Jokes of the Fringe.

****’Amazingly funny’ The list
****’Chris Betts is witty, charming and very funny’ Voice Magazine

Also appearing on the night is Sam Savage winner of Funny's Funny and New Act of the Year runner! Sam is one of the most original and entertaining forces to emerge on the comedy scene for years. There is something for everyone in her silly and surreal look at life.

'Excellent'. Three Weeks
'She writes proper jokes'. Jenny Eclair

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.

The Coastal Comedy show with TV headliner Ivo Graham!
Star of Live at the Apollo (BBC1)
Mock the Week (BBC2)
Roast Battles (Comedy Central) and many more!

‘Screams superstar… should be huge in five years’ time’ ****  The Mail on Sunday

Our headliner Ivo started stand-up at the age of eighteen and eight months later became the youngest ever winner of the prestigious So You Think You’re Funny award!

He has become a regular fixture in the clubs and theatres of the UK circuit, with a gauche charm and crafty, self-aware wit which has proved a hit with audiences of all ages, and led to appearances on multiple TV and radio shows including Live At The Apollo, Mock The Week, Comedy Central At The Comedy Store, As Yet Untitled, Live From the BBC and Fighting Talk.

We are so proud and excited to welcome Ivo to Bournemouth and Coastal Comedy.

Opening the show is Karen Bayley - her friendly and confident stage presence, combined with a killer wit, an infectious giggle and some devastating one-liners make her a comedic force to be reckoned with. Karen displays a delightfully saucy and spiky edge, her bold, no nonsense attitude strikes a perfect pitch with men and women alike.

“Bayley’s material surprises with inspired and sparkling punchlines…with comic timing that is rarely less than brilliant.” ­- Chortle

Also appearing on the night is Loveable welsh man David Arnold an act who never fails to deliver a well-rounded and polished performance that has his audience laughing throughout and is quickly establishing himself as one of the most exciting new acts on the comedy circuit, with his enthusiastic, engaging and endearing style.

Hosting the show is our resident MC Adrienne Coles and we look forward to seeing you there!
