Jayde Adams – The Ballad Of Kylie Jenner’s Old Face – Following a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, multi award-winning comic Jayde Adams brings her 5 star show to Soho Theatre. In 2019 if you want to be a ‘successful independent woman person’ you better have something to say and you better be wearing a Serious Black JumperTM. “Britain’s funniest woman comic” (Daily Mail) has packed away the sequins (for now), because it’s time to get serious… “Still fabulous, but just being real” (List). If pop stars, razors and even sausage rolls can attach themselves to important causes, why can’t Jayde Adams? https://ilovejaydeadams.com/the-ballad-of-kylie-jenners-old-face/

Will Adamsdale – Facetime – Is at the Soho Theatre from Thu 23 – Sat 25 Apr, 7pm. He won the 2004 Perrier Award in 2004 but, let’s face it, he’s hardly kicked on has he? This show will be about failures, really (his, generally). And time. And the three-year-old son who recently said, ‘let’s leave him in the woods’. Expect stories of staggering technical incompetence. Songs of the quiet hell of the gentrifier. Poor attempts to pass off his flaws as his generation’s fault. Expect a tussle between the personal and the public that could comfortably sit on the pages of one of Arthur Miller’s early teenage plays. https://sohotheatre.com/shows/will-adamsdale-facetime/

Enissa began touring in 2015, winning the German Comedy Award for Best Newcomer that year, and her tours now sell out the biggest venues that Germany. In 2018, Amani became the first woman in Europe with a Netflix Original Comedy Special with the release of Ehrenwort.

Don’t panic, character comedians Lola & Jo (‘Bloody brilliant’ ★★★★ Chortle) will find answers to the big questions before time’s up. Is this a low-budget escape room run by a dysfunctional duo? Is this a comedy show jumping on the zeitgeist of escape rooms to grab your attention? Or is this just an excuse for Lola and Jo to lock you in a room for 60 minutes and freak out?

Alex Kealy – Rationale – How stink bombs can make you right wing & other stories, it’s the debut UK tour from a writer of BBC Radio 4’s The News Quiz and The Now Show and BBC Two’s Mock The Week. “‘A storming show from the whimsical funnyman’. Stephen Armstrong, The Sunday Times. Political comedian and ‘marvellous stand-up’ (The Skinny), Alex Kealy is embarking on his debut UK tour with an hour of comedy about the emotional roots of our rational thoughts. All served with ‘a reservoir of memorable gags’ (The List). We prize rationality in life, in argument and in politics. But that’s not really how we think – we’re all prejudiced, sentimental bell-ends who see politics through emotional prisms and personal connections, and then tack on a rationale for those gut decisions after the fact! Rationale reveals that, among other things, stink bombs and German classical music can, subconsciously, impact our political choices. And who better to explore all this than Alex Kealy? A man with strong political convictions undermined in any argument by his massive cowardice and need for absolutely everyone to like him all the time, always. Fortunately, ‘this is clever comedy…one of those shows where you come out feeling like you’ve done yourself some internal damage from laughing so much’ (★★★★ Shortcom). https://www.alexkealy.com/tour-dates.html

John Kearns – Double Take And Fade Away – Two-time Edinburgh Comedy Award winner and four-time Chortle Award nominee John Kearns returns. Still a slave to dairy, the Gregorian calendar and Greenwich Mean Time, he is flesh and blood after all. A funny man, not for everyone of course, but remember this mustn’t be mistaken as an invite rather a heads up. Based on the theory that the most interesting places on maps are the empty spaces, John has booked a tour, stopping by at some places that look like people share hot water bottles with their landlords. The show implores you to learn lessons from your ceiling and realise Fred Astaire actually knew very well what he was doing. https://www.ents24.com/uk/tour-dates/john-kearns

https://www.sarahkeyworth.co.uk/

Comedy Club 4 Kids – is at the Soho Theatre from Sat 25 Jan, 22 Feb, 21 Mar, 12pm – Since 2005, the Comedy Club 4 Kids has been getting the best stand-ups and sketch acts from the international circuit to do their thing for an audience of children (aged 6+) and their families…but without the rude bits. It’s just like a normal comedy club, but it’s on in the day, kids are allowed in, and thus there is a higher than usual chance of heckles like “why is that your face!?”. https://sohotheatre.com/shows/comedy-club-4-kids-4/

Following her BBC Radio 4 special, the acclaimed stand-up tells a love story through the medium of computer programming (which she studied at university, and, like, barely ever brings up). In her feminist investigation into what happens when we can’t separate love and technology, Olga will teach you how to code and explore what happens when our expectations for love, happiness and Michael Bublé no longer compute. As seen and heard on Mock The Week, Pls Like, The Now Show, and BBC Arts Hour. Directed by Charlie Dinkin. https://www.rocknrolga.com/

Yuriko Kotani – Somosomo – Is at the Soho Theatre from Mon 24 – Tue 25 Feb, 9pm. They say the squeaky wheel gets the grease.

Laura Lexx – After two sell-out Edinburgh shows in two years, star of Live At The Apollo and double winner of The Comedian’s Choice ‘Best Performer Award’, Laura Lexx is going on her first UK tour with Knee Jerk. Knee Jerk shines a hilarious light on how hard it is to be a good person these days. The world seems furious at the moment, whether that is over Brexit, carbon emissions, gender, plastics in the sea, nationality or whether or not we should be aiming for the future or the past. Maybe Laura is projecting, but, is all this arguing and fighting down to the fact we’re absolutely terrified? In Knee Jerk, Laura uses the tricks she learned to cope with her eco-anxiety to try and soothe the world’s temper and calm down our various phobias. The dates for the tour are here: https://lauralexx.seetickets.com/tour/laura-lexx

Josie Long – Tender – Three-time Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee and very-hard-to-pin-down-indie-underdog-nightmare Josie Long is back with a brand new show after a brief hiatus, during which she had a baby and so on. It’s about the mind-bending intensity of new motherhood, but mostly about kindness, gentleness, and joy – all in all, the edgiest thing you will see this year. The aim is for you to come out of it feeling optimistic about the future, although that is a big ask. At the very least there will be some really silly voices in it, and that’s not nothing. You can see the show at the Soho Theatre Monday 11th to the 20th, and then in 2020 – https://www.josielong.com/

Ticket details are here: https://sohotheatre.com/shows/stevie-martin-hot-content/

Paul Mccaffrey – Lemon – Is at the Soho Theatre from Tue 21 – Wed 22 Apr, 7pm. As seen on Live at The Apollo. In this hilarious new stand up show, McCaffrey struggles to get to grips with technology, being spied on by the Chinese, idiotic self-help books and setting fire to his oven gloves.

Star of Live at The Apollo, BBC3’s Impractical Jokers and Russell Howard’s Good News and Comedy Central’s Stand Up Central. An accomplished radio presenter and guest, Paul has recently been heard on: talkSPORT, Absolute’s The Alternative Vote, Rob Beckett’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Football and BBC Radio 2’s Russell Kane’s Whistlestop Tour. https://sohotheatre.com/shows/paul-mccaffrey-lemon/

Joined by her friends-with-benefits Rhys Hollis and Samir Kennedy, and directed by Ursula Martinez (Triple Threat, Wild Bore, Free Admission) the Total Theatre nominated prodigy returns to Soho to crawl through the annals of history in an enthusiastically humiliating exploration of power and purpose.

Following the murder of his father, hard hitting and critically acclaimed northern comedian Chris McGlade is attempting to lay to rest the ghosts that have haunted him ever since.This show, whilst telling the story of his dad’s horrific murder, is also a funny, sincere, un-PC, no holds barred and touching homage to the man who shaped his life and humour. https://sohotheatre.com/shows/chris-mcglade-forgiveness/

Annie McGrath – Shepherd- Is at the Soho Theatre from Mon 17 – Tue 18 Feb, 9pm. Dark and charmingly offbeat, Annie McGrath tackles issues of male toxicity, consent and sheep herding.

Gary Meikle – His new show is The iBrow Guy and dates for it are on his site: https://www.garymeikle.com/

Garrett Millerick – Smile – “Last year I wrote this bit for my flyer and promised that I’d deliver an hour of pure comedy, no gimmicks, no sad stories. That all went out the window a few weeks before the festival when my wife nearly died, and I had to rewrite the show. It made a complete mockery of everything I’d promised on the flyer. The show ended up being very successful, so it turns out people never hold you to what’s written on flyers anyway. In the last twelve months my wife has resolutely refused to nearly die, so it’s going to be missing the emotional impact of last year. There’s nothing I can do about that, I’ve tried. I messed with the brakes on her car, put stuff in her food, no dice. But then again, it’s 2019, everyone is depressed and anxious, the planet is dying and Boris Johnson is Prime Minister. So that’s probably dark enough to be getting on with. This is my best effort at a defiant battle cry against the gloom.It’s called Smile.” https://sohotheatre.com/shows/garrett-millerick-smile/

Shazia Mirza – Strap in for a hilarious and uplifting joyride into the art of survival in a world of crocodiles, coconuts, solitary confinement and alpha males in award-winning, critically acclaimed Shazia Mirza’s brand-new show. Following the success of her last solo shows, ‘With Love From St. Tropez’, a riot of Brexit, buquas and butt-plugs through the lens of the periodic table, and ‘The Kardashians Made Me Do It’, a searing and urgent exploration of life, love and Jihadi brides, Shazia is now taking on the burning issues of our time. What’s going on? Why is everyone fighting? Why does everyone hate each other? Who the hell is Alexa? And why are there no women left with real eyebrows? Women are in fashion now but the eyebrows come and go? And why do all the right-wing papers keep calling her for answers every time there is a paedophile with the same skin colour as her? Can we really educate people? Can we drag anyone forward against their will? For further information and ticket details, please go here: https://www.shazia-mirza.com/

The tour starts in London on Wednesday 5th February and finishes at the Glee Club in Cardiff on Sunday 31 May – the venue where Robin used to work at behind the bar . Robin Morgan is a father to his son and a son to his father. But what makes a good male role model? What A Man… is about being a ‘young woke dad’ (not Robin’s words, the words of a drunken audience member in 2018), calling out the double standards that set the bar so low to be a ‘good dad’ and exploring the gender roles forced on our children from conception. What A Man… also explores how male friendship can be improved by occasionally kissing your best friend, and how men need to do better. “Robin is one of the smartest, nicest and most importantly, funniest people in the biz.” – Rachel Parris. https://www.robinjmorgan.co.uk/tour

Once the most radical, now the only radical, Alan returns with the old gold, the old truths, and some new truths (based on the old truths). For over 35 years, Munnery has performed around the world, experimenting with and innovating the stand-up form. In the 1990s, his Alan Parker: Urban Warrior character took the comedy circuit by storm, garnering Munnery his own BBC Radio 1 series, which Time Out London called ‘the funniest thing on Radio One’ and a residency on ITV’s Saturday Live. 1996 saw him collaborate with Graham Linehan and Stewart Lee for BBC2 show, London Shouting, in his Alan Parker guise, and the character also become a regular contributor to NME magazine.

Geoff Norcott – Taking Liberties – Geoff Norcott’s acclaimed Taking Liberties tour has been doubled in size, with 25 new dates added in 2020. “There’s been a lot of talk about extensions”, says Geoff, “well, despite my political allegiances I’m delighted with this one. It’s time the people were given another say…on whether or not they want to see my show.” Beyond left/right party politics and Brexit, Geoff Norcott has realised the main thing that motivates his political persuasion is that he hates being told what to do. Whether it’s Eurocrats, ministers, cultural icons or his wife of 15 years, Geoff just can’t stand anyone having power over him. It’s a bad time to feel this way. With rising ‘Nanny State’ legislations coming from a supposedly right-wing government and ever greater controls on food, lifestyle and language choices, ‘Taking Liberties’ is both a statement on what Geoff fears is happening and his intent to playfully push the envelope. “He’s a class act with a mature, sharp take on modern politics.” Sunday Times. https://www.livenation.co.uk/artist/geoff-norcott-tickets

Kiri Pritchard-McLean – Empathy Pains (Work In Progress) – is at the Soho Theatre from Mon 10 – Sat 15 Feb, 10pm. Multi award-winning comedian Kiri Pritchard-McLean (Have I Got News for You, Live at the Apollo, 8 out of 10 Cats, Frankie Boyle’s New World Order, Would I Lie To You) is back with her fourth full-length show. Previous shows have seen her tackle structural racism, sexism, child grooming, adoption and emotional abuse so what seemingly unfunny subject has she picked to turn into laughs this year? Chernobyl? The shrinking size of creme eggs? No, empathy. Which sounds fine actually but maybe not the way Kiri tackles it. Kiri thinks that we live in a time where empathy is seen as a weakness like asthma or being first to pull away from a handshake. But why is that? Surely what we need in these divided times is more empathy? So Kiri is off on a search to find a group of people who she struggles to empathise with, what could this mean…..? Well, it means she’s spent the last year talking to non-offending paedophiles on the internet. Yup, her search history is a disaster. So, come and see her make the impossible hilarious or possibly get arrested

John Luke-Roberts – AFTER ME COMES THE FLOOD (BUT IN FRENCH) DRIP SPLOSH SPLASH DRIP BLUBBP BLUBBP BLUBBPBLUBBPBLUBBP!! – Is at the Soho Theatre from Thu 20 – Sat 22 Feb, 9.15pm. The critically acclaimed idiot John-Luke Roberts returns to the road with another ridiculously long titled show this autumn. In a brand-new hour of extraordinary daft-hearted comedy, expect to not know why you are laughing once more… even when he gives you the punchline first. Jokes about staring into the Nietzschean void, the stupid decisions of kings and how Pinocchio can save the world all might make appearances in this hour of absolute silliness. But then again, maybe they won’t. Who knows what could happen… https://sohotheatre.com/shows/john-luke-roberts-comes-the-flood/

Jack Rooke – Love Letters – Is at the Soho Theatre from Tue 11 – Sat 15 Feb, 3pm, 7.15pm.

No one dies and it’s set to a beautiful live harp. Straight people welcome so long as they don’t fidget. P.S. your dad reckons you’ll love it (he’s just in my shower, says he’ll call in the week). https://sohotheatre.com/shows/jack-rooke-love-letters/

This year she is actually happy. This show answers the question: are all stand-ups at their best when they are miserable? Fingers crossed no. Of course, the world is still completely f**ked – so don’t worry, it won’t be too joyous. A mix of storytelling, observations, a dash of social politics and a lovely routine about a smear test. This show has everything. The last twelve months have been massive for Ruffell; a smash hit UK tour, heaps of television appearances including; Live At The Apollo, Hypothetical, 8 Out Of 10 Cats and she has learnt how to make the perfect lemon cake. Come and see what all the fuss is about… https://suziruffell.com/

Sindhu Vee – Is on tour in December, with tickets available via her site. http://www.sindhuvee.com/#Home

Trygve Wakenshaw – Only Bones V1.34 – “Make a show with No story, No language, No set, No props, and only ONE light’. Rubber-limbed Trygve Wakenshaw takes on the challenge set by fellow New Zealander, Thomas Monckton, creator of the original Only Bones (v1.0) described by The Times at LIMF17 as ‘spare but not slight… painfully hilarious’. Trygve Wakenshaw’s Only Bones v1.4 raises a finger, as well as most other limbs, to the rule books and the people that write them. This is a hilarious new minimalist extravaganza. It skewers the rule makers, the enforcers, the abiders, and screams “wake up sheeple!” as it politely waits for the traffic lights to change. This is micro-physical comedy unlike anything you’ve seen (unless you’ve seen Thomas Monckton’s Only Bones v1.0). Oozing with whimsy, dripping with charm, master of the risqué and magnificently mad, Trygve trained at the Gaulier School in Paris. His previous, award-winning solo shows and duo with Barnie Duncan have been popular sell-outs at LIMF and around the world. A World Premiere, part of 2020 London International Mime Festival. https://sohotheatre.com/shows/trygve-only-bones-v1-4/

Chris Washington – Raconteur – Is at the Soho Theatre from Tue 24 – Wed 25 Mar, 9.15pm. Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer Nominee, Chris Washington returns to the Soho Theatre with his new show Raconteur. If you like your comedy hard hitting, boundary pushing, genre-defying, jaw dropping, eye watering, Brexit-berating then this is definitely not the show for you. However, if you fancy a laugh as a lad from Wigan tells you some funny stories for about an hour, buy a ticket and take the ride. As seen on Live from the BBC (BBC1). Mock The Week (BBC2), Quickie (BBC3), Jason Manford Tour Support and Milton Jones’s Tour support. British Comedy Guide Recommended 2018. https://sohotheatre.com/shows/chris-washington-raconteur/

Henning Wehn – Is touring for the entire year, so surely must be at a venue near you soon. http://henningwehn.de/tour/

Rich Wilson – Death Becomes Him – Is at the Soho Theatre from Fri 20 – Sat 21 Mar, 8.45pm. We’re very sorry to announce that stand up veteran, father, bus driver, gay sauna worker and beloved ‘Pudding’, Rich Wilson has died; but that’s only the beginning. Join “a very very funny man” (said Frank Skinner) in purgatory, where Rich will dissect his earthly behaviour to find out if he deserves to go to Heaven or Hell. Rich Wilson’s “tour de force” (Leicester Mercury) performances have earned him a win for Best International Guest at the 2016 New Zealand Comedy Awards, followed by a sell-out run in 2017 which saw him nominated for the same award again. Rich is also the host of wildly popular podcast, Insane In The Men Brain. A podcast in which Rich talks to funny and interesting people about their experiences with men’s mental health. Previous guests have included; Scroobius Pip, Rob Beckett, Phil Ellis, Jen Brister, Dane Baptiste, Richard Thomas (Jerry Springer The Opera) and Simon Evans. https://sohotheatre.com/shows/rich-wilson-death-becomes-him/

Andy Zaltzman – The Certifiable History – Andy Zaltzman, host of the long-running worldwide hit satirical podcast The Bugle, returns to Soho Theatre with the fourth edition of his stand-up review of the global year. 2019 has been another classic 12-months-of-mayhem effort by Planet Earth, as a frankly bizarre decade spluttered stroppily towards its end. As one of more than 7 billion people to have lived through the entirety of 2019, Zaltzman is uniquely qualified to reflect on, for example, the ongoing nation-sundering Brexit squabblings in Britain, humanity’s breakneck progress and equally breakneck regressions, and how the world’s inhabitants are (a) dealing with, and (b) skilfully ignoring, the various challenges looming over them. Andy toured the USA with The Bugle Live this year, and spent much of the summer snout down in the Cricket World Cup, partly due to his role as a cricket statistician for BBC Radio’s iconic Test Match Special, partly in a deeply scientific research project on the extent to which the human brain can shut out all relevant forms of reality. Armed with this knowledge, and assisted by his Bugle co-star Alice Fraser, Zaltzman will pass his unarguable, definitive historical verdict on the year even as it is still warm and twitching, and consign it to the history books, where it undoubtedly belongs. https://andyzaltzman.co.uk/shows/
