STAND UP COMEDY: BOBBY MAIR & CHUMS / Comedy, Live Entertainment

Wed 15May
8:00 PM

Note: This event has finished


Bobby Mair

‘Mair exudes a kind of effortless, awkwardness and brings to it something fresh and downright disturbing. A bright, dark future surely awaits’ – The Stage

‘The best 30 minutes I’ve stand up I’ve seen in a decade. Sheer comedic genius’ – Anthony J Brown (no, really)

As seen on Channel 4’s ‘8 out of 10 Cats’ Bobby is a Canadian wunderkind fresh out of the ‘Just for Laughs’ Festival. Voted ‘Best Newcomer’ at the Canadian Comedy Awards he won the national ‘Stand Up And Bite Me’ competition in 2011 which netted him 10 grand and his own half hour comedy special on CTV, Canada’s main TV channel. A UK theatre tour support for Doug Stanhope Bobby is currently one of the most sought after new comedians on the planet. He is frickin’ AMAZING. Trust me, you have to see this dude.


Philip Simon

‘Never less than hilarious’ – The Stage

Comedy Cafe Award Winner Philip is a delightfully polished performer with a flair for observational humour. His twisted take on the everyday has seen him become established as a darn fine opening act with a laconic delivery that is a joy to behold.





Callum Scott

‘Impressive and inventive, he shows great potential’ – Comedy Review

Since starting out in May 2011, Callum has gigged around the Yorkshire circuit, winning Mr. Ben’s Gong show, and getting through to the final of Tickled Pig. Having been described as an “angry little boy”, and contrary to all reason, Callum remains confused and fascinated by his immediate surroundings, providing a view of the world from the unique perspective of someone who doesn’t really understand zips. Regularly compared to Richard Herring, and choosing not to ask whether that was physical resemblance or not, Callum provides an insight into what it’s like to be simultaneously seven and 85 years old.


Compere – Anthony J Brown

‘Hilarious ad-libs and wicked one-liners from an infectiously funny performer’ – The List

Clad in a sartorially edifying manner, like a dapper and dandy funeral director, Anthony cuts a unique on-stage presence with humour blacker than a raven that’s slammed it’s claw in a coffin lid. Jongleurs/Metro “Stand & Deliver” Award winner and former BBC New Comedy Award Runner-up he is a regular contributor to Radio 2’s “The Arthur Smith Lectures”. As seen on ‘The Stand Up Show’ and ‘Phoenix Nights’.
