Nish Kumar

Double Edinburgh Comedy Award Nominee Nish Kumar is bringing his brand new show to The Anvil. The title is a quote from Terminator 2.

There will be jokes about politics, mankind’s capacity for self-destruction, and if this will lead to the end of days, good fun stuff! He's the host of the Mash Report, which you might have seen on BBC 2 or on a Facebook video posted by someone you went to school with but haven't spoken to in a while.

Menopause The Musical

starring Cheryl Fergison (EastEnders), Maureen Nolan (The Nolans), Rebecca Wheatley (Casualty) and Hilary O’Neil (ITV’s Copy Cats).

This hysterical show packed full of one-liners about night sweats, hot flushes and memory loss is backed by an instantly recognisable soundtrack of innuendo-laden versions of 60s, 70s and 80s pop hits.

Hancock's Half Hour

From the producers of the critically acclaimed tours of Round the Horne and The Goon Show comes another radio comedy live on stage.

In 1954, Tony Hancock burst onto the airwaves of the BBC Light Programme with a comedy show unlike anything the British public had heard before. Playing a less successful version of himself and surrounded by a cast of fellow comedy greats including Sid James, Hattie Jacques and Kenneth Williams, Hancock’s Half Hour was one of the first programmes in the genre we now know as sitcom.

Rhod Gilbert: The Book of John

This event is now sold out. Please call the box office on 01256 844244 to be added to the waiting list.

It has been a while, but the multi-award winning Welsh comedian is back, with a brand new live show. In a six year break from stand-up, a lot has happened to Rhod. Almost all of it s**t. And just when he thought he’d hit rock bottom, he met a bloke... called John.

Ruby Wax, The Monk and The Neuroscientist

We can’t stop the future from arriving, no matter what drugs we’re on. But even if nearly every part of us becomes robotic, mechanical fingers crossed we'll still have our minds. Hopefully we'll use them for things like compassion, instead of just chasing what’s ‘better’ like a hamster on a wheel. If we can do that, we’re on the yellow brick road to happiness.
 

The Goon Show

From the producers of the critically acclaimed 50th Anniversary Tour of Round the Horne comes another radio comedy live on stage.

In 1951 the landscape of British comedy changed dramatically when The Goon Show burst onto the airwaves of the BBC Home Service. Spike Milligan, Peter Sellers, Harry Secombe and co. brought a brand of surreal chaotic humour unlike anything that had been heard before and revolutionised the way radio comedy was produced.
