Gits and Shiggles Comedy (Best Comedy Club 2016 – The Lost Review), has been bringing London the best in emerging, established and alternative comedy since 2011.
Previous acts to perform include Stewart Lee, Harry Hill, Jack Whitehall, Reginald D. Hunter, Katherine Ryan, Alistair McGowan, Josh Widdicombe, Henning Wehn, Pappy’s, Sara Pascoe, Cardinal Burns, James Acaster, Nick Helm and Shappi Khorsandi
Tonight is the launch of their new night at The Bill Murray, with a humdinger of a line-up:
Fantastic New Zealand born comic and actor, with a reputation forged on the UK stand-up circuit, culminating in him winning the Chortle Award for Best Compere
On TV, he has been seen in Mock the Week, 8 Out of 10 Cats, Never Mind the Buzzcocks, Russell Howard’s Good News, Dave’s One Night Stand and Let’s Dance For Comic Relief
“Effortless banter, witty set pieces, and a puppy-dog enthusiasm that’s impossible to resist” Chortle
“Attention-seeking exuberance is often a substitute for talent. Not Jarred Christmas, he has both in spades” London is Funny
“One of the funniest men to pick up a microphone” ★★★★ Time Out
“Likeable, intelligent and full of unpredictable energy” Scotsman
“Christmas is robustly funny, his delivery confident and his show not to be missed’ ★★★★ (List)
MAX AND IVAN
One of the countries finest sketch acts, with a string of critically acclaimed shows under their belt, including the Edinburgh Comedy Award nominated The Reunion (recently adapated for Channel 4 Comedy Blaps).
As seen on BBC2 in W1A and heard on BBC Radio 4 in The Casebook of Max and Ivan
“Phenomenal range of talent” ★★★★★ Daily Mirror
“Astonishing: Fast-paced and unflaggingly funny” ★★★★★ The Times
“Max and Ivan are the real deal” ★★★★ The Guardian
Crtically accalimed purveyor of “Stand-up poetry”, championed by everyone from Daniel Kitson to Jarvis Cocker, Cerys Matthew to Scroobius Pip, and with a succession of original and inventive shows to his name: The Yellow Show, The Sky Show, The Face Show, The Water Show, The Sleep Show and the upcoming The Hair Show. As seen on BBC1, BBC2 and Channel 4.
“He is entirely compelling to watch. He’s a poet/writer/talker and it’s funny in parts but that’s not the point – there is something else happening, I’m not entirely sure what it is but it’s great and it wallops you in the belly.” Daniel Kitson
“Charming, eccentric and uplifting, Auton is a talent to watch” The Independent
“Poetical, philosophical, humane, completely charming and funny to boot” The Guardian
“His absurd brand of stand-up and poetry is exactly what the country needs right now” Huffington Post
“Few artists have ever managed to consistently provide me with such joy and pleasure as Rob Auton” Scroobius Pip
Wildly bold and original character comedian, whose previous shows Some Like it Thea-Skot and It’s Thea-Skot in Here, So Take Off All Your Clothes gathered a string of four and five star reviews.
As heard on BBC Radio 4’s Newsjack and So On and So Forth
“An absolute tour-de-force” BBC Comedy
“Everything an Edinburgh Fringe show should be; Brave, silly, a little bit unhinged and very, very funny” ★★★★★ Funny Women
“Thea-Skot is a force of nature …… A feelgood hit” ★★★★ Chortle
Character comedian and improviser, performer with The Petting Zoo (“Improv supergroup” Time Out) and The Free Association.
His 2015 character show with Lola-Rose Maxwell, Kayfabe, garnered 4 1/2 stars from Edinburgh Theatre Reviews, but, annoyingly, only offered up the pull-quote “Fab!”
“The kind of good humour and imagination that marks out the best” TV Bomb
“Sparkling, satirical wit” ★★★★★ Edinburgh Guide
Tickets £8 adv/ £10 door
