 '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 funny man Pete Philipson who has been building a name for himself on the circuit as a fantastically talented 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.

Plus Simon Lomas who is one of the best new comers on the circuit and was nominated for both the Chortle Awards Best Newcomer and Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2018!

Any attempt at us describing what he does will ruin the fun. Just trust us and enjoy!

The Coastal Comedy Show with TV Headliner Rob Deering!

As seen on:
Comedy Rocks With Jason Manford (ITV1)
The Weakest Link Comedians’ Special (BBC1)
Celebrity Mastermind (winner) (BBC1)

With his easy charm, cheesy singing voice, razor-sharp wit and clownish physicality Rob has quickly established himself as a firm favourite on the comedy circuit around Britain.

Rob performs stand-up comedy with music, using a guitar, a loop pedal and his voice to create impressive rock and pop soundscapes – and does jokes, of course.

Along with being one of the most in-demand headliners on the UK circuit, he’s toured nationally and performed solo shows at the Edinburgh Fringe many times since starting out in comedy in the year 2000 and ran all over Britain for BBC 6 Music.

“Ingenious and hilarious” The Guardian

“An evening in his company is nothing less than a joy” The Independent on Sunday
'Truly wonderful stand-up' (The Sunday Times)
'As sharp and versatile as a Swiss Army Knife' (The Independent)

Opening the show is the incredibly funny Phil Jerrod who began his stand-up career underneath an Angus Steakhouse in 2012. Since then he has failed his PhD, walked out of his job in publishing and been entertaining audiences up and down the country with his elegant rants on the often unfathomable problems of modern life.

Casual brilliance” – The Guardian

Also performing on the night is Martin Wratten - an ex ice cream man from Eastbourne. At the height of his ice cream days Martin could make 3 Mr Whippies at once. But, those days are long gone.  He is now So You Think You're Funny Semi Finalist 2016, and Fosters South Coast Comedian of the Year WINNER 2017!!

Don’t miss this top night out at the Lighthouse Poole's Centre for the Arts, with some of the best acts on the circuit. The night is hosted by local comic Adrienne Coles – see you there!

The Coastal Comedy Show with TV Headliner Troy Hawke!

As seen on BBC3's Live at the Electric and many more.
Legendary star of YouTube, and the Edinburgh 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.

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.

 “Undeniably funny' (Chortle)
 'Mad comic genius' (The Scotsman) 
“A must see for any comedy enthusiast...one of the best comedy acts this year” Edfest Magazine
“A delight to behold” London Theatre Guide

Opening the show is the extremely talented Ben Van De Velde. Ben is a stand-up comedian, actor, improviser and presenter, who, over the past few years, has spread joy and nonsense in some of the very best comedy clubs across the UK and beyond and has performed alongside acts such as Omid Djalili, Reginald D. Hunter and Sarah Millican. We are excited that he will grace our stage.

‘Highly promising…an accomplished comic.’ Time Out

Also appearing on the night is up and coming Nathan Eagle who’s has a unique take on the world and makes the mundane look abstract. Nathan’s engaging stories about childhood hoovers, dodgy geezers and disastrous disco dancing keep the audience hooked.

"Nathan is one of the most original and exciting new acts I have seen in ages. Brilliantly funny" Zoe Lyons

The Coastal Comedy Show with Roger Monkhouse! 
Stand-up Comedian, Actor, Presenter, Writer and Voiceover Artiste

Roger is a consummate stand-up who employs a deadly combination of charm and menace to exert a masterful control over any audience. A highly original and quirky performer, his trademark stage-prowling style and curious, inimitable manner have established him as one of the hottest names on the comedy circuit.

Supremely confident, with audience banter down to an art form, Roger is happy to improvise freely but has no shortage of first class material in his armoury. A master of observational comedy with a routine that is universally and unfailingly hysterical.

 “Unfailingly entertaining and skilfully able to pull punch lines, seemingly, out of thin air” Chortle

Opening the show is the hilarious Luke Honnoraty who is highly regarded as one of the best acts to emerge from the South West in recent years. Luke with his award-winning stand-up burst onto the circuit in 2010 as the winner of the 'South West New Act of the Year' on his 3rd ever gig, and has gone from strength performing alongside the best names in comedy including Matt Richardson, Russell Kane, Katherine Ryan and Joel Dommett.

Also supporting Roger is Sam Russell, an exciting newer act already making his mark on the comedy circuit. Warm and likeable, his optimistic, upbeat brand of comedy focuses on the hilarity of life’s weirder moments and the challenges of it’s everyday mundanities, to which we can all relate.
