Marcus Brigstocke - Why the Long Face?

an Off the Kerb Production

Monday 5th December at 8pm


“Dazzling, inspired, perfectly observed.  I’ve yet to see anything funnier” - Daily Telegraph 

 “Intelligent, dark, subtle stuff” - The Observer 

“ …. Charming, hilarious and utterly refreshing” -  Sunday Mirror 

I was born with a long face and now there's UKIP and Putin and being single and Islamic State and George Osborne and Paul Dacre of the Daily bastard Mail and tax dodging corporations and the bloody election and did I mention being single? 

One of Britain’s finest comedians and broadcasters, Marcus’s talent was noted early on in his career in 1996 when he won the BBC New Comedian Award at the Edinburgh Festival. He is now regarded as a major comedy, writing and acting talent, performing stand up nationally to sell out audiences around the UK and globally at international comedy festivals. 

BBC Radio 4 has become somewhat of a second home to him with regular appearances on The Now Show and Just A Minute, and he has notched up an impressive list of TV credits including team captain on Argumental (DAVE) and the host of BBC4’s The Late Edition and I’ve Never Seen Star Wars. Other appearances include; Have I Got News For You (BBC ONE), QI (BBC TWO), Sorry I've Got No Head (BBC ONE), The Late Edition (BBC FOUR), and the 11 O'Clock Show (Channel 4). 

'Rare is the stand-up show that makes you laugh, think and then fight back the tears. This is it' **** - Daily Telegraph /

Rich Hall Live 2016

An Off the Kerb Production

Wednesday 7th December at 8pm

Now is the time to grab this chance to see the great man at work” – The Guardian 

“captivating and brilliant… ability to make the room guffaw was worthy of standing applause” – Sunday Mirror

Rich Hall is the star of the critically acclaimed BBC 4 documentaries Rich Hall’s California Stars, Rich Hall’s You Can Go To Hell, I’m Going To Texas and Rich Hall’s Inventing the Indian

Rich Hall’s critically acclaimed grouchy, deadpan style has established him as a master of absurdist irony and the king of rapid-fire wit. The award-winning Montana native renowned for his expertly crafted tirades and quick fire banter with audiences and delightful musical sequences saddles up and hitches his wagon to tour the British Isles once again. This is a comedian who's plain spoken growling indignation and acerbic observations have an unerring talent for hitting his targets with precision every time, leaving his audience hanging on every word winning him fans all over the globe.  Perrier (Edinburgh Comedy Festival) Award and Barry (Melbourne International Comedy Festival) Award winner Hall has been described as a transatlantic messenger lampooning each country he visits with his common sense, and he is no less harsh to his homeland.

“As close as it gets to a guaranteed good show”Scotland On Sunday

“Rich Hall is a comedy phenomenon”The Sun
