Free Thinking Radicals

Monday 30th May 2016

Fed up with the government? Fed up with the establishment? Fed up with what gets passed off as modern entertainment?
Then come be lifted by the Free Thinking Radicals. A night of comedy, music, spoken word and general anti-authoritarian shenanigans. We’re not saying you’re an idiot if you like all the things mentioned above, but the people that are behind them think you’re a f**king moron. We don’t. We respect your right to have your intellect stimulated.
Or you can remain bewildered with the herd. That’s how they want you. Things are changing…

ALISTAIR BARRIE: NO MORE STAGE THREE

Tuesday 31st May 2016

In January 2015, topical comedian Alistair Barrie’s wife was diagnosed with breast cancer, which gave him some perspective on what really constitutes bad news.
‘No More Stage Three’ is the show Alistair wrote about their year together after the diagnosis. It has played to packed audiences and fantastic reviews across the UK, Australia, Norway, Greece and at the Edinburgh Festival where it was nominated as one of the best ten shows at the Fringe. The Scotsman described the show as ‘all wrapped in such beautifully crafted, perfectly timed material’ while Chortle.co.uk praised its ‘slick, high-end comedy.’
Come and watch another comedian make it all about himself. (His wife wrote that bit.)
Alistair Barrie is one of the most widely travelled and respected stand ups on the international comedy circuit. A regular with The London Comedy Store’s ‘Cutting Edge’ team, Kate Copstick described his 2013 show as 'Properly smart comedy for grown-ups. By a properly smart comic' and Bruce Dessau recently called him 'one of the comedy circuit’s smartest, most versatile stand-ups.'
