HILARIOUS; NOBODY MAKES ME LAUGH LIKE PAUL TONKINSON. SIMPLY ONE OF THE GREATEST COMICS AROUND. GO SEE HIM!” Michael McIntyre
A sensational live performer, Yorkshire man, marathon runner and former (double award-winning) Time Out Comedian of the Year, Paul Tonkinson has long upheld his esteemed reputation as one of the finest stand-ups the UK has to offer. With a unique and distinctive style, Tonkinson is noted for his effervescent physicality and skillful impressions, which bring alive exuberant, tender comic reflections on love, family and the day-to-day idiosyncrasies of 21st century living. A plethora of first class material, combined with tremendous charm and irrepressible, infectious energy make for quite a formidable talent.

As seen on BBC3's Live at the Electric and many more. Legendary star of YouTube, and the Edinburgh Festival.
Milo McCabe (AKA Troy Hawke) is a character comedian with over ten years experience on the circuit and PERTH WEEKLY COMEDY AWARD WINNER 2019. He has twice been nominated for the Amused Moose Best Edinburgh show award and was listed as GQ's Top Ten comedy shows of the festival.
Troy Hawke is an erudite home-schooled 1930's throwback...the Errol Flynn of the high street. Educated, sophisticated, but utterly clueless. He tackles modern issues head on in his uniquely untimely manner.

The Coastal Comedy Show with TV headliner Stephen Bailey!
Star of Live at the Comedy Store
Host of Celebrities on the Fam (C5) and many many more!
Stephen Bailey is a comedian, presenter, television personality and writer, whose friendly and open brand of gossipy humour has made him one of the UK’s most exciting up-and-coming acts in comedy at the moment.
He is the host of Celebs on the Farm (Channel 5) & Celebs On The Ranch (5Star) and was the resident Agony Uncle on the Zoe Ball show. Stephen has also been on Coronation Street (ITV), The Apprentice: You're Fired (BBC Two), Roast Battle on Comedy Central to name a few and you can see him live in Bournemouth in our intimate setting at Hotel Celebrity.

"Comedy Genius" - Fringe Guru
"When it comes to being funny, he's just got it" – Scotsgay
Opening the show is the fabulously funny Matt Price. Among his fellow comics Matt Price is known for having some of the most extraordinary and outrageous stories drawn from the wilder side of life. And yet this self-effacing Cornish born comic brings real warmth and heart to his tales.
"A terrific comedian and a wonderful storyteller." ★★★★ The Scotsman
Also appearing on the night is Goofy and peculiar, Stephanie Laing who’s comedy is partway between the needy oddness of Maria Bamford and the upbeat affability of Josie Long. Her material is a mix of silliness, filth and unusual observations, underpinned by a disarming honesty which makes her seem charmingly vulnerable.
This night is hosted by Adrienne Coles from the winners of the BH Stars ‘Night Time’ Award 2019.
