Love comedy? Love books? Quite like either/both? Then join the finest (available) UK stand-ups – who are also sit-down authors – as they bring you jokes and routines from shelf to stage… before plugging their books available afterwards.

Hosted and curated by “dazzlingly funny” (The Spectator) local comedian/author Paul Kerensa (Hark! The Biography of Christmas), you’ll leave with aching sides – possible because you’re clutching books freshly signed by the acts!

The line-up (subject to change) includes:

Stand-up mathematician Matt Parker is a regular on Radio 4’s Infinite Monkey Cage and tours with Festival of the Spoken Nerd. His new book, Humble Pi: A Comedy of Maths Errors, on maths going wrong in the real world, will be launched at this very show.

Award-winning comic Rosie Wilby has appeared on Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour, ITV’s Good Morning Britain and at Latitude Festival. Her book Is Monogamy Dead? was shortlisted for the Diva Literary Awards, longlisted for the Polari First Book Prize 2018 and followed her TEDx talk of the same name.

“Charmingly funny” Aidan Goatley has toured his acclaimed show ’10 Films with My Dad’ across the world, including Dubai, Istanbul and throughout Europe. Its script is included in his new book of collected writings Never Eat the Buffet at a Sex Club, which he’s keen to add contains no sex and no food either, but is very funny.

Over 18’s as its in a pub. No refunds or exchanges. No disabled access.
