Show Information

William Thompson (BBC New Comedy Awards Finalist 2021, as seen and heard on Dave & Channel 4, BBC Scotland) is a rising star from Belfast.

Growing up disabled on a Northern Irish council estate, where people aren’t known to be sympathetic, William struggles with living with Grandparents, relationships and stereotypes, as he tries his best to make the most out of the hand he was dealt.

William is co-host of The Mudblood Podcast, regular guest on Tea With Me, and  has supported Shane Todd & Paddy McDonnell on tour and sold out shows across the UK.


Our venues are small and usually best suited to couples and small groups of friends, we do not offer any group discounts and tables seat 2-4.

As such we specifically limit the number of large groups in the audience at all shows and our capacities dictate the maximum group size we are prepared to take.


If you’d like to enquire about a group booking, please get in touch with us at [email protected]


We do receive a high volume of group requests at this time of year, so please allow us up to 5 working days to come back to you.


We ask that you do not book individually or in smaller blocks as it can cause problems for you on the door and occasionally, we must turn away groups.


We do not accept stag/hen parties at our venues- this is our permanent, year-round policy


This show has unreserved seating and standing room.
