There are laughs-a-plenty to be had at The Hawth over the coming months, with stand up from the well established and new faces plus a new play which will make you laugh and warm your heart.
You may know him from Mock The Week, Live at The Apollo and Fighting Talk, now you can see him in the flesh, Ivo Graham will be in the The Hawth Studio on Friday 18th May at 8.00pm with his new show Educated Guesses. After an eventful year off (got a new laptop, etc.), the boy’s back in town, with resolutions galore but less courage in his convictions than ever. How much has Ivo learnt? And what good has it done him? Described by the Evening standard as ‘Honed to within a whisker of perfection… a joyous show’, its a night of comedy you won’t want to miss, but it’s not the only one to look forward to this season.
Another hilarious night is about to hit town with Lee Hurst, star of They Think It’s All Over who will be turning up and lobbing gags and funny stuff at you from all angles on Friday 25th May at 7.45pm. Lee promises there’s no journey or message, just great fun. If you want plenty of laughs then this is for you.
Andrew Lawrence’s The Happy Accident will have audiences in stitches on Saturday 9th June at 7.45pm. The star of BBC1’s Live at The Apollo, Michael McIntyre’s Roadshow, Dave’s One Night Stand and Sky Arts’ The Outcast Comic presents an all new, riotously funny set of jokes, poking fun at Liberal pretensions, PC hysteria and his own awful parenting skills.
Then following the sell-out succuess of his last show, the ever popular Danny Baker makes a welcome return to The Hawth on Friday 20th July to let us all know that Good Time Charlie’s Back! He’ll be sharing more tales from his three best-selling autobiographies and beyond. Tickets are already very limited.
It’s not just stand up comedy on offer to make you laugh, on Friday 15th June The Hawth Studio presents
Treading Water, a comedy of belly laughs, broken hearts and biscuits. Sue and Carol are lifeguards. Their routine is simple and their dreams seem equally so as they spend their days keeping the morning swimmers, the day trippers, and the evening strollers safe. Each morning a lone figure appears on the sand. The women watch, transfixed, as the he wafts his equipment, listening for the beep. If only there were a way to get him to come over. If only there were a way to get him to say something. Anything.
Treading Water is a funny, heartwarming tale that combines classic end of pier comedy with Aykbourn – style dialogue.
There are lots of great names to look forward to as the year goes on with all this still to look forward to;
Ross Noble (2nd Oct), Alfie Moore (6th Oct), Gary Delaney (12th Oct), Sarah Millican (21st Nov), Zoe Lyons (30th Nov) and more names being added all the time.
