Looking to plan for a brilliant Autumn this year? Why not take a look at our mind-blowing comedy acts coming very soon to the Drill!

Whether you are wanting to create an perfect date night with your loved one, or a big night out with your mates– why not start with a comedy night at the Drill Hall? We have a staggering selection of comics to pick from- from established stars like Marcus Brigstocke and Gary Delaney, to the stars of the future playing in our regular Red Herring Comedy Club Nights.


Marcus Brigstocke (7th September)

A new stand up show from multi-award winning comedian Marcus Brigstocke.

Snowflake, Nazi, Remoaner, Trot, Libtard, Brextremist, Feminazi, Piers Morgan…

As we divide each other up into more and more unpleasant categories of evil, it is time to establish, once and for all, what is good and what is bad.

Who better to arbitrate in these challenging divisive times than Lucifer himself?

Gary Delaney (28th September)

One of Britain’s leading one-liner comics returns to the road with another onslaught of lean, expertly crafted gaggery. A Mock The Week regular and recent star of the new Live At The Apollo series, Gary’s shows are renowned in the business for a near unrivalled volume of high-class gags. You should expect no different from this, his brand new tour for 2018.

Seann Walsh (3rd October)

Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee and the self-dubbed “Lie-In King”, Seann Walsh is “unquestionably the best observational comic of his generation (The Guardian).

Seann is back from his run in America, where he made his USA television debut appearance on Conan. All you need to know is Seann Walsh is back on tour in the UK!

This disheveled, fiery, animated, fiercely idle, millennial man child is one of best live comedians to have come out of the UK.

Jason Byrne (5th October)

The ‘Outright King of Live Comedy’ (The Times) Jason Byrne is on the road again for more comedy chaos.

Strap in as Jason takes you on a trip of mad routines alongside some proper bonkers stunts. As seen on ‘Live at the Apollo’ (BBC1), ‘The Royal Variety Show’ (ITV1), ‘Don’t Say It bring It’ (Dave), ‘Wild Things’ (Sky) and recently seen judging ‘Ireland’s Got Talent’ (TV3). He’s truly ‘unmissable’ (Evening Standard) and “Consistently brilliant” (The Metro).

Dr Phil Hammond (17th October)

Dr Phil Hammond has worked in the NHS for 31 years and loves it so much he still does. He is also a broadcaster, journalist, author, campaigner and comic.

Dr Phil charts the course of the NHS from 1948 to as long as she lasts. Come cheer the heroes, boo the villains and look to the future of robot surgeons, Fitbit nurses and iPhone GPs. Batteries not included.

“If Dr Phil were a medicine, you should swig him by the litre.” The Times ****

“One of the most entertainingly subversive people on the planet.” The Guardian

Red Herring Comedy Club Nights (1st September, 6th October, 3rd November, 24th November)

Lineups yet to be announced. Our ever-popular monthly comedy extravaganza, will definitely be busy over the Autumn- with some of the best upcoming comedy stars gracing our stage.

We are delighted to announce that Rachel Parris will join us next year!! (Sunday 10th March)

You may recognise her as the star of BBC’s The Mash Report- join her as she presents a comedy show packed with stand-up, song, sketch, and inevitably a sideways swipe at society. In this tour show she showcases some of her best bits, from her trademark comic anthems, to her all-too relatable, bittersweet stand-up, alongside brand new material looking at the insane events of this year.


The Flop (19th September)

For those that loved Spymonkey‘s The Complete Deaths, this will not be one to miss. Spymonkey team up with Hijinx Theatre Company to bring you one hilarious show.

Paris, 1657ish. When a Marquis is accused of failing to get-it-up, his wounded pride and need to be a manly man, leads him towards a monumental public flop. But can a cast of total idiots save a show about a flop… from being one?

“The humour here is brilliantly black with mordant social and political relevance” The Herald
