Sod The Tories (And Have A Nice Week)

Sunday 2nd July 2017

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 Sod The Tories. 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…

Sunday 9th July 2017

Sarah Bennetto : All My Life's Mistakes, Catalogued (Volume 1) - PREVIEW
One dimwit comedian's every dumb decision. Presented in list form. 50 great mistakes guaranteed.
A new stand-up and sketch show by Melbourne-born, London-based comedian, Sarah Bennetto. As heard on BBC Radio 4, Sarah Bennetto's Mix-Tape, Glastonbury backstage radio.
'Self-depreciating, dark, honest and genuinely funny. One of the most enjoyable and original shows I've seen this year. It had me laughing out loud more times than I could count. A solid hours of laughs, it culminates in a truly epic finale.' ★★★★½ Advertiser, Adelaide
'A sophisticated mix of standup and character comedy, Bennetto succeeds in harnessing the full power of an instinctive comedic mind.' ★★★★ Fest, Edinburgh
'Sarah Bennetto brings a fantastically original concept to the Producers' Warehouse. She is bright, funny and fast on her feet, with a wonderful collection of silly characters. This show is a vivid package of silly, clever and sometimes self-deprecating humour that stands out amongst the mass.' ★★★★ Rip It Up, Adelaide
'Bennetto delivers effervescent, confident and well-structured stand-up. Her tales of outrageous fortune are suffused with urbanity and wisdom, and buoyed by a lightly rendered sense of nostalgia' ★★★★ The Age, Melbourne
'Superb. Devastating. Edges towards perfection.' ★★★★ ThreeWeeks, UK

Bec Hill : Out of Order - PREVIEW
Bec Hill provides the jokes. You provide the order. A brand new hour full of stand-up, pop-ups and post-its from the award-winning Australian comedian.

Anyway, I'm an idiot and I like being stupid so if that sounds like your kind of thing then get down to Stand 3 and laugh at me without feeling bad about it... or don't... it's up to you really... I mean, I know I'm not everybody's cup of tea... anyway, f*ck it! Come, don't come, whatever. God I'm shit at self promotion... please come.
'Delightfully angry and ridiculously creative' ★★★★ Fest .
'Bananas!' ★★★★ Chortle.co.uk .
★★★★★ Times .
★★★★★ Gigglebeats.co.uk .
★★★★ List .
Ed Aczel 'Infinite?' WIP
Is Edward Aczel Infinite? Have you ever thought: who am I? Is it all just a dream? Is time constant or variable? Is it only possible to imagine the infinite? No, me neither. Anyway, we live in uncertain times and Ed's house is built on shifting sand. So it calls for some navel-gazing. It'll probably be fine – it might even work… there’ll definitely be jokes. And more stars than you can shake a stick at (ideally).

Monday 24th July 2017

Gavin Webster : It's About Time We Had More Women in There
My struggle with right on politics. Gavin Webster is 47 and is white and male and still has trouble getting to grips with ongoing political correctness.
I know, he should be executed! He started work on a building site in the mid 1980s after attending the comprehensive school with the lowest attainment in the borough of Gateshead.
Apparently he doesn’t realise how lucky and privileged he was.
Expect pertinent and vacuous points from both sides by a man arguing with his inner self.
‘His rants are wonderfully surreal' Herald.

Lee Kyle : Somewhat Adorable Man Baby
Sometimes, when comedians are interviewed, they talk about how they have a responsibility to talk about the issues.
Lee Kyle doesn’t even know what the issues are. I mean, he does, he’s not a total idiot, but he has absolutely nothing to teach you. He’s just a man with no unique selling point who likes to be stupid. It is good being stupid.
Whatever the opposite of satire is, that is what he’s going to do.

Yeah, whatever. He’s also got a book out.

Lauren Pattison: Work In Progress

Sunday 30th July 2017

One of the brightest young things on the comedy scene, who is beginning to make her presence known across the country, homegrown talent Lauren Pattison brings a preview of her hotly anticipated debut hour to the club she's grown up (and thrown up) in.
Fresh from performing at both Leeds and Latitude Festival and supporting the likes of Katherine Ryan, Kerry Godliman and Dane Baptiste on tour, this baby faced comic is one to watch out for.

Alun Cochrane : Alunish Cochranish
Grumpy-joyful, silly-serious stand-up.
Jokes, ideas and (possibly) movement will all be deployed for your amusement during this show.
As seen on blah blah and blah, and heard on various funny radio shows.

Seymour Mace's Magical Shitcakes from Heaven
This bit's called the blurb whatever the f*ck that means.
Anyway, I'm an idiot and I like being stupid so if that sounds like your kind of thing then get down to Stand 3 and laugh at me without feeling bad about it... or don't... it's up to you really... I mean, I know I'm not everybody's cup of tea... anyway, f*ck it!
Come, don't come, whatever. God I'm shit at self promotion... please come.
