The Coastal Comedy Show with TV headliner Andy Askins!
As seen on:
The John Bishop Show (BBC1)
The Comedy Store (Comedy Central)
Enjoy a top night of stand-up comedy with 3 hilarious acts and host.

About our headliner: 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 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 and we can’t wait to welcome him to the Lighthouse.


Opening the show is local comic Gareth Richards. Gareth has appeared on Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC2), Live at the Electric (BBC3) and performed live on Radio 1 on two separate occasions. He has also co-hosted Frank Skinner’s Sony award-winning Absolute Radio show for two years and supported Frank on his 2014 tour. His hilarious stand-up, silly jokes and gorgeously low-key comedy songs have made him an instant favourite on the comedy circuit.

“A delightful hour of comedy” 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 with some of the best acts on the circuit. The night is hosted by local comic Adrienne Coles – see you there!

 This show is Socially Distanced in the Theatre with limited availability and seating in pairs.

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 hilarious 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. 

 “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 ****

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
