‘Has a good book collection’ – Notts Comedy Review.
Liz is very new to the stand-up comedy world. She did an 8-week comedy course in September/October 2023 which ended with her first performance to 200 people. She is now continuing her journey with local groups doing stand-up. Her comedy is character-based as she uses puppets. She likes to challenge the idea that puppets are for children with characters that are rude and sweary, trust me you don’t want little Johnny to watch Slightly Psychic Cynthia doing a tarot reading!
Ben Ashurst (as featured on BBC Radio, Stand Up For Cider Winner 2023) has quickly established himself as a rising star of the comedy circuit.
His warm, likeable stage presence coupled with self-deprecating humour will leave the audience wanting more.
“Ben is so likeable, warm and most importantly… Funny. The crowd were with him from the get go and stayed with him throughout. One to watch for sure” – Paul McCaffrey, Live at the Apollo
Ben has been performing stand up comedy on and off for the last 10 years, including accidentally being on the same bill as comedy superstar Joe Lycett (before The Great British Sewing Bee). His leisurely, self-deprecating style of comedy has been honed over the years as well as at monthly comedy nights he hosts across Nottingham.
New to comedy but described by people as “relatively funny chap” as well as an “adequate father” and “unprofessional bartender” he’ll do his best to make you chuckle
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.
