Live Stand Up Comedy at the Fox & Grapes


This show has an exciting change in lineup! Unfortunately, Jon Wagstaffe can’t make it but we’ve hit the jackpot with our new headliner – the uproarious Barry Dodds! ??

Barry, a four-time winner of the ‘Best MC’ at the Midlands Comedy Awards, effortlessly entertains with his down to earth observational humour and unique charm. He’s also a co-creator of the successful podcast ‘The Parapod,’ which explores all things paranormal!

That’s not all! Barry’s ‘Parapod Movie’ hit the Apple Movie Top Ten chart and is now available on Amazon Prime, gathering high praises from both fans and critics alike.

With regular appearances at top UK comedy clubs like The Glee Club, Frog and Bucket, Manford’s and Hifi, Barry’s talent for storytelling is renowned. He’s even been supporting Jason Manford on his ‘Like Me’ tour and has a podcast with fellow comedian Hayley Ellis called ‘The Worriers.’
