Join us for a fantastic night of live comedy, featuring some of the brightest and best comics in the country. Enjoy hours of laughter with these incredible acts :
Ian Whitcombe (MC)
Live at the Apollo, Mock the Week, Taskmaster and Britain’s Got Talent are just a few of the programmes Ian’ has never appeared on. The list is literally endless!
Groan-inducing puns, sparkling one-liners and stories about where doctors like to put their fingers mean that this act is a must-see.
Ian’s one-liners are well thought out, clever and genuinely laugh out loud’ – Oli Clarke, Toolmakers Comedy Club
Ian has a natural & likeable stage presence with good pacing and nice jokes’ – Greg Phillips – Laffa Cake Comedy
Jules O’Brian (Headliner)
Jules O’Brian first took to the stage in 2017, at The Comedy Loft, in Birmingham, as part of a night for charity. A keen fan of Rik Mayall, French and Saunders, Victoria Wood, and Joan Rivers, as well as Katherine Ryan, Tim Minchin, Amy Schumer, and the Brum-based Luisa Omielan, Jules states her stand-up style is “Butter wouldn’t melt meets Is That All There Is?” (a reference to the dark song made famous by singer Peggy Lee).
An English Tutor, Jules currently lives in Tamworth, Staffordshire, and performed a sell-out ‘triple-header’ with pals Tal Davis and Hannah Weetman during 2021’s Birmingham Comedy Festival.
Jules O’Brian was shortlisted for Funny Women 2021, and performs at venues and festivals around the country, telling anyone who will listen about ageing disgracefully, body hang-ups, parenting, and dating. She is TalkTalk’s official voice – chosen by none other than the legend Bernard Cribbins – and her silly writings feature frequently in magazines including Prima and MamaLife. This former teacher’s relaxed and chatty style, crowd interaction and warmth, all served with a sardonic wit, make her a natural crowd pleaser.
Nominated for the Birmingham Comedy Festival Breaking Talent Award 2022
“Funny as f***” Mama Life Magazine
“Splendid…a quality performance” Notts Comedy Review
Shortlisted for Funny Women 2021
Get Up Stand Up semi finalist 2022
‘Promising’ newer 19 year old act on the scene that has been gigging mainly around the Nottingham area for the past few months. Notts comedy review said in the past that he ‘would have liked to have seen more’ and at the Juicebar in November many will!
Sonja Reddy is a relatively new comedian having performed her first gig in June 2023, helping to raise nearly £5,000 for Cancer Research in the process.
Since then Sonja has gone from strength to strength, performing in various towns and cities, including Nottingham, Derby, Long Eaton and Coventry.
Sonja’s comedy is based around her own life experiences and her very varied job roles, where she manages to combine the discipline of working for a supermarket with the discipline of being a dominatrix !
“Sonja has good, well written material which she delivers with a strong, confident on stage persona.” – Ian Whitcombe
Vix Jayne Leyton
Discovered by Mark Watson on Twitter in 2019, Welsh comic exiled to London, Vix Leyton is a natural storyteller with a keen eye for observation, combining warm, whimsical charm. A Funny Women awards semi finalist 3 years in a row and named as ‘One to watch’
Her panel show podcast ‘The Comedy Arcade’ is both an audio success and compelling live show, picking up a nomination for Leicester Comedy’s best podcast in 2021 and racking up sell out shows at Edinburgh Fringe two years in a row. Regular club MC for nights including The Stand, Red Imp Comedy and Outside the Box in London.
Robin Ince: “Bursting with impish energy, exudes an infectious delight”
Mark Watson: “Vix has a talent for reading a room and playing with an audience. She is funny, charismatic, resourceful and likely to achieve great things’
‘Charming, surprisingly dark and gonna be famous’ Andrew O’Neill
‘Like hanging with your funniest BFF.’ Fringe Biscuit
‘joyously full of funny’ The Scotsman
‘Purest stand up comedian I have seen in years’ BroadwayBaby
‘Affable and ebullient’ Steve Bennett, Chortle
Probably the oldest ‘new’ act around, John has just completed his 50th gig in post Covid Sheffield. Although mainly based in Yorkshire, Humberside and Manchester he has kindly agreed to make the long trek to the Juice bar. See him now, while he’s still with us !
Mel Judson is the ‘Funny, Frank and Fabulous’ Bradford based comedian and proudly cynical misanthropist. She is quickly making her name on the comedy circuit with her dry and deadpan style as she shocks and delights audiences with her true to life stories and reflections. As well as providing tour support, Mel is also working on her own hour show ‘Spoilt’ debuting in Autumn 2023.
‘Surprising, funny and just delightful’ – Daliso Chaponda
Ben Owen grew up with dreams of stand up comedy fame and no access to a local comedy circuit, so from the age of 20, he’s been performing hour-long gigs all by himself before making a splash (though it’s currently more of a small ripple) in the comedy scene.
His inoffensive but humorous style of observing every day life has led him to his first review “my mum’s new favourite comedian” – one day, he’ll break free of all the mums, for now, he’s just happy someone’s laughing.
Please be advised that our comedy line-ups are subject to change. Our talented comedians are in high demand and, on occasion, may need to cancel at short notice for television or radio recordings, among other reasons. Rest assured, we will always provide a replacement act of similar quality to ensure that our guests receive a great overall show experience.
While most of our guests come for the entire show, we understand that some may be travelling to see a particular comedian. If that’s the case, we recommend checking our website on the day of the show or joining our mailing list to receive the latest updates on any changes to the line-up. We’re committed to providing our guests with the best possible experience, and we thank you for your understanding.
