Bouncers - Bursting with imagination and wit and presented by just four actors, Bouncers is an outrageous and hilarious parody of the disco scene. The four brutish bouncers of the title portray over twenty different characters as we are invited for a night out on the town. We see them as giggly girls and lads on the make preparing for the big night out as we follow their progress to the disco floor. There, we also meet an entire cross-section of disco-goers, including Hooray Henrys, pogoing punks and drunken slobs! The evening's events arc set against the tatty glitzy glamour, flashing lights and pulsating beat of the night-club scene.
Shakers - Shakers Cocktail Bar is THE place to be! After work, before a club, to meet the blokes, to pick up the girls, to drink to celebrate or drown your sorrows, for birthdays and parties and romance and sin, this is the place to be seen.
And in 'Shakers' the four young waitresses reveal the lives of its staff and customers and offer an insight into their hopes, dreams and disappointments. John Godber's sparkling writing builds on the success of his earlier 'Bouncers' to create a richly absorbing yet tellingly revealing modern comedy.
Friday 27th May at 8pm
“Ranganathan's punchlines are sharper and funnier than many of his peers.” The Guardian
Romesh Ranganathan is back with a brand new show exploring the rationality of his worldview. ‘Irrational’ will see Romesh examine the issues close to his heart, and explains why everybody else is wrong about them.
★★★★ Sunday Times
The last two years have been incredible for Ranganathan with his two critically acclaimed Edinburgh Festival shows, ‘Rom Wasn’t Built In A Day’ and ‘Rom Com’ being nominated for the coveted Edinburgh Festival Awards for Best Show 2014 and Best Newcomer in 2013. This new show promises to be as much of a hit!
“supremely accomplished” ★★★★ Chortle
Romesh has come a long way since quitting his career as a maths teacher making a real name for himself appearing on BBC1’s ‘Live At The Apollo’, ‘Jack Dee’s HelpDesk’, ‘Have I Got News For You’, BBC2’s ‘Mock The Week’, ‘The Apprentice: You’re Fired’, ITV1’s ‘Play To The Whistle’, ‘The Jonathan Ross Show’, Channel 4’s ‘Alan Carr Chatty Man’ and most recently Dave’s ‘Taskmaster’.
This autumn will see the launch of Romesh’s very own six-part series for BBC Three ‘Asian Provocateur’ where we will see his mum sending him off to Sri Lanka in search of his roots on the trip she has always hoped he would make.
Romesh will be supported by Phil Jerrod
“… his ability to produce bitingly fresh gags marks him out from the crowd.” The Guardian
