Harry and Chris Save the World

Tuesday 20th November 2018

Harry and Chris are the hottest comedy-rap-jazz duo out there. They might also be the only one. After sell-out runs of their 2016 and 2017 shows at the Edinburgh Fringe, Harry Baker and Chris Read have been featured three times on ‘The Russell Howard Hour’ (Sky), and tour regularly around the UK. Their songs range from panda repopulation to coming of age to Robot Wars, and they bring love and laughter to a world that needs both more than ever.
'Amazing, fabulously entertaining' Jonathan Ross
'A wonderful blend of infectious songs packed with sharp, clever wordplay… Harry and Chris’ family friendly set leaves the audience with a smile on their face and the catchy tunes stuck in their head for the rest of the day.' ★★★★★ Sunday Post
'The numbers are upbeat and feel-good, and all of them are about surprising and inventive subjects or points of view.' ★★★★★ Fringe Guru

Rob Newman's Total Eclipse of Descartes

Sunday 25th November 2018

SORRY, SOLD OUT! To be added to a list for possible returns please email admin@thestand.co.uk
In a world gone crazy, can philosophy help? This sparklingly brilliant new show tries to give you the answer.
‘He is the funniest comedian I have ever seen…A passionate, chaotically brilliant comedian.’ Sunday Times
Rob Newman (stand up legend, best-selling novelist, Radio 4 Sony Award Winner) attempts to piece together a philosophy for our troubled times by sifting through 3000 years of thought: from Pythagoras to Artificial Intelligence by way of Pavlov’s dogs, Jane Goodall’s chimpanzees and Frankie Howerd’s trousers.
‘I am completely in awe of Robert Newman. Of his talent, his passion, his intelligence, and the way he turns them to comedy with real firepower. If this world could be saved by a Superhero whose Superpower was Comedy, that hero would be Robert Newman.’ Kate Copstick, Scotsman
'Intellectually charged and adorably ambitious... A delightfully digestible dose of brain food.' ***** Times, 2018
'Gleefully jaunty and refreshingly intelligent... I loved it.' **** Guardian, 2018

Zoe Lyons - Entry Level Human

Tuesday 27th November 2018

She's a regular on 'Mock the Week' and a much-loved figure on 'Live At the Apollo' as well as being all over Radio 4 - for whom she's making her very own series in 2018, after extensive stints on 'The News Quiz', 'Just a Minute', 'The Now Show' and plenty more. All the makes it sound like Zoe Lyons has some sort of idea what she's doing in life. But does she? Or is she the perfect example of an Entry Level Human?
Decide for yourself, as this hugely popular comic returns with a fresh crop of 'quick-fire observational gags, delivered with utter conviction' Chortle, not to mention 'proper laugh-out-loud one-liners' Herald. And, she 'has what it takes to delight any crowd'. That one's from the Guardian. Are you going to argue with them? Actually, don't answer that.
Just come and see Zoe to find out.
'A hugely enjoyable mix of brutal put-downs and richly funny stories, Lyons has what it takes to delight any crowd' Guardian
'Zoe Lyons really cuts the mustard' Scotsman
'Confident and razor sharp' Observer
