This Christmas Coastal Comedy push the boat out ……and present the sensational Gary Delaney!

Double Sony Award Winner Regular On Mock The Week (BBC2)

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

“Wickedly funny” The Sunday Times

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.

'Like a gift from the Comedy Gods' The Herald Plus top support acts. Advance tickets are £15 from the Box Office on 01202 316316 or online.

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.

Come and enjoy a night of stand-up comedy. Our TV Headliner is the fantastic Nathan Caton!
As seen on:
Live at the Apollo (BBC2)
Mock The Week (BBC2)
Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC2)

Nathan Caton is one of the most exciting young comedians on the scene. Gigging since the tender age of 19, over the last decade he has established himself both as a circuit headliner, and a name on TV and radio.

Within his first few years on stage, he had picked up various accolades and since then Caton has gone from strength to strength, wowing audiences at comedy clubs up and down the UK, and on his numerous TV and radio appearances, with his delightfully charming blend of personal and political comedy.

‘A comic well worth catching any chance you can’ – One4review
‘Funny, clever and a pleasure to listen to.’ – Broadway Baby
‘A charming and convincing operator’ – The List

Opening the show is BBC New Comedy Award finalist Liam Pickford who’s unique style is a breath of fresh air to the circuit. Liam has crafted his own unique brand of stand up, mixing cleverly honed material and punchlines with excitingly unpredictable audience interaction. All this, mixed in with a hint of ‘whimsy’ and clever observations whilst delivered in a wonderfully unenthusiastic and grumpy style. 

“He’s got funny bones, and a scattergun mind that doesn’t quite work like anybody else’s.” Steve Bennett, Chortle

Also performing for your laughing pleasure on the night is Jim Campbell who has been busy with a chart-topping podcast, an acclaimed book and his personal life exploding. Everyone was right though; it’s good for material. 

Warning: quality of jokes may compromise structural integrity of the building’s roof.

“Charmingly fresh... an hour in Campbell's company will leave you entertained and enlightened” The List ****

“A superb example of how to craft a technically accomplished, winningly performed piece of comedy” Fest ****

The night is hosted by resident MC Adrienne Coles in our lovely intimate setting at Hotel Celebrity.
