Steve Gribbin: Shunted Again at The Honor Oak

For our august break, we are doing some one-off shows featuring FRIENDS OF LAUGH TRAIN HOME. 

Steve Gribbin: Shunted Again

Tormented Train Traveller, militant non-driver & sit-down (when he can get a seat) satirical comedian Steve Gribbin presents his bittersweet love letter to the current British Railway system, “Shunted Again!” which he performed at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival last year, and at Soho Theatre in April 2018.  The show will be a mixture of stand-up, songs, poetry, sound effects, storytelling, shouting, weeping and hilarious true train announcements, as Steve examines all aspects of our railways.

Free to book, in order to reserve your seat. A collection for donations will be made at the end of the show.

Work in Progress: Simon Brodkin & Gordon Southern at The Honor Oak

SIMON BRODKIN IS NOT LEE NELSON

From the man who pranked Theresa May, Donald Trump, Sepp Blatter, Kanye West and many more of the world’s biggest tools; acclaimed character comedian Simon Brodkin steps out from behind his Lee Nelson creation to be even funnier as himself. About time too.

“This is satire so sharp you could slash a tyre with it” Daily Telegraph

 “The guy has a gift”  Washington Post

“Unfunny pillock” Deputy Prime Minister

GORDON SOUTHERN

SPECIAL COMEDY EVENT: Kerry Godliman & Rosie Jones at The Four Thieves

SPECIAL COMEDY EVENT - THURSDAY JULY 12TH!

ROSIE JONES: FIFTEEN MINUTES (WORK IN PROGRESS)
Fifteen Minutes is the debut hour of critically acclaimed comedian Rosie Jones (8 Out Of 10 Cats, Silent Witness). In the show, Rosie will ask the question, “Who would I be if I were able-bodied”? Nobody knows, but Rosie's hunch is she's probably a knobhead!

KERRY GODLIMAN: STICK OR TWIST
Kerry Godliman's straight talking brand of quick wit and bewilderment will be covering more of life’s anomalies. Why is there a Buddha at the garden center? Why collect her children’s teeth? And even though she can't stand aubergines, why is it her favorite emoji? There’s loads to get sorted. Be there. She’ll do all the talking.
‘…A great comic who oozes personality’Evening Standard
Intelligent, silly and – at all the right moments – laced with righteous ire.’ The Guardian
Kerry has been seen on Live at The Apollo, Derek, Mock the Week and many many more.
