The Horse & Plough Comedy Night

The Horse & Plough Comedy Night

That’s it, the date has been set by Rishi Sunak ! July the 4th is the official date for the most important event this country has ever seen.

Yes, it’s the next Horse & Plough Comedy Night !

Check out this astonishing line up :

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

Andy White (Headliner)

Andy White is an energetic, confident and silly Brummie who combines silly voices and a mad afro to devastating comic effect. Andy has numerous media appearances, including the BBC New Comedy Awards on BBC Choice, Brand Spanking New on BBC Radio 7 and his winning performance on the Weakest Link comedian’s special! His appearance on the BBC quiz show featured in his five star (* * * * * Three Weeks) Edinburgh show, ‘It Started With A Quiz’ in 2007. This followed on from his well-received one man show at the 2005 Leicester Comedy Festival: Young, Gifted and Beige.

Andy escaped from a call centre to become a stand up comic who mixes silly voices and faces with observational humour, topical humour and his mixed race background. He can do material that’s clever, cheeky, sick or just silly and his performance can shift from deadpan to loud and physical. Andy has played to a wide variety of audiences, adults and children, both at home and abroad, in comedy clubs, theatres, universities, radio and TV shows, and at corporate entertainment events. He regularly headlines up and down the UK and has worked with all the major chains and comedy promoters along the way. Overseas, he’s performed in Monte Carlo (Laughing Horse), Berlin (Bleu Montag), Abu Dhabi and Dubai (Laughter House) amongst others.

“Had me exercising my pelvic floor muscles to avoid an accident” – Karen Slater, BBC Tees

Ashley Frieze (MC)

With his charming, daft, and warm brand of music-infused stand-up comedy, this guitar-toting funny man has been entertaining audiences across the UK for over 20 years. His original songs, with well-crafted lyrics and catchy tunes, span many genres from Jazz to Coldplay.

Ashley has something for most audiences. Intelligent, geeky, silly, and occasionally naughty, he’s playful but never rude!

He regularly appears at comedy clubs all over the country as a headliner and is the resident MC of his own comedy night. His YouTube channel contains original songs, parodies and other strange goings on.

He’s a sharp, MC, and a powerhouse featured act appearing at theatres, comedy clubs, many many pub function rooms, festival stages, and even a moving bus! His solo Edinburgh Shows, The Seven Deadly Sings, and Discograffiti led to the release of his albums on all good streaming platforms (and many bad ones).
A musical theatre lover, Ashley’s appeared in local productions of The Producers, My Fair Lady, A Little Night Music and Guys and Dolls. He also co-wrote and starred in The Musical!, Edinburgh Fringe 2004.

As a writer, he’s edited and written books about performing at the Edinburgh Fringe, including How to Produce, Perform and Write an Edinburgh Fringe Comedy Show and the COVID-19 special edition – How to Write, Perform and Produce a Cancelled Edinburgh Fringe Show : Quick Guide: Complete guide on how to not write, perform and produce a show at the Edinburgh Fringe. He’s also worked as an editor on the Professor Howe novel series.

Jim Brown (Middle)

Jim returned to comedy after an 11 yr gap last summer and is 120 gigs into phase 2 and recently gigged with Tom Wrigglesworth and Harriet Dyer.
Historically he did 200+ gigs from 2006-10 mainly in New Zealand, culminating In two one hour shows in the NZ International Comedy Festival ( both Billy T Award nominated) before a sell out hour at the Leicester Comedy Festival in 2010.

Marie Goulbourne (Middle)

Marie used to be a lawyer, but she’s ok now.

Marie is serious about comedy. Her deadpan style and exceptional timing deliver a likeable authenticity as she shares candid tales of life as an autistic oddball in a modern world that understands her as well as she understands it. That is to say, not at all.

Marie first performed stand-up over 20 years ago. A demanding career combined with health issues created this hiatus. She jumped back into comedy after Covid, and it’s going pretty well.

Based in Wigan and standing at 5 feet 2, Marie is confident in the diversity-box-ticking, gender non-conforming, AFAB, disabled, working-class lesbian that she is. But this is incidental. Marie is dry, refreshing and different. But, if you’re opposed to swearing or overwhelming honesty, she isn’t for you.


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.
