Tom Lucy has established himself as one of the most exciting new comedians around. ​Starting at just 16 Tom quickly rose through the comedy club circuit to became one of the youngest professional stand-up comedians in the world.

In 2016 Tom became the youngest winner of the prestigious Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year Award. In 2017 he supported Jack Whitehall on his UK Arena Tour and has also toured as a support act for Kevin Bridges, Michael McIntyre and Rob Beckett.

 Supporting Tom is on the night is talented comic 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 appearing on the night is JennyBSide who brings Gender Fluid Musical Comedy to the Lighthouse with full force.

Quickfire songs that combine her own brand of Trollopop with a sprinkle of Minchin and a dash of darkness to desensitise. Joyously wrong and contrary to popular belief not a Drag Act.

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!

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!!
