Simon Brodkin – Let Me Introduce Myself

Comedy

Thursday 11 July 2019, 8pm

Doors & bar open: 7.15pm

Bar, supper

You may know him as “comedy legend” 1 Lee Nelson or as the “unfunny pillock” 2 who gave Theresa May a P45, but you won’t know him as “tiny Jew” 3 Simon Brodkin.

After three hugely successful series of Lee Nelson on the BBC, multiple TV appearances (Live at the Apollo, Sunday Night at The Palladium, C4’s Comedy Gala), and several world-famous stunts on the likes of Donald Trump, Kanye West and Sepp Blatter, Simon unveils his funniest persona yet; himself.

In this highly-anticipated ‘debut’ show, the award-winning, critically-acclaimed comedian takes us from his childhood growing up on the mean streets of Hampstead Village, to his adulthood as a failed doctor, inept parent and fairly rubbish Jew.

Prodigious talent

Chores

Circus / Comedy

Saturday 13 July 2019, 3pm

Doors & café open: 2.30pm

Café

Families will love this wild circus-comedy adventure all the way from Australia! Chores is an action-packed 60-minute show, jam-packed with acrobatics, juggling, unicycling, cheeky humour and other amazing skills. Two brothers must hurry to clean their room before their mum comes back. What could possibly go wrong? With a storyline we can all relate to and inspired by Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin, this is a show that’s made for children, but there is plenty of hilarity to amuse parents and families too!

After watching Chores I really want a toilet paper gun now. ★★★★★
