Bethany Black, Keith Farnan, Jordan Ducharme, MC Alex Boardman Scroll down for comedians’ details.
Acts subject to change. 18+ Proper sweary swearing. Fully seated. We want everyone to have a great night so please pop your mobile on silent and don’t chat when the show is on. Thanks!
Well, where do we start when it comes to Bethany Black? We could tell you that Chorley’s funniest daughter is Britain’s only goth, lesbian, transsexual comedian but that was fully covered in her debut show – ‘Beth Becomes Her’.
As well as making people laugh a lot, Beth was spotted by Russell T Davis and played ‘Helen’ in Channel 4 series’ Cucumber, Banana and Tofu.
We could also tell you Beth is a bit of nerd and something of a Doctor Who fan but, how many Whovians can claim to have appeared in the show? Beth did in 2015 when she played 474.
This is all well and good but just how funny is she? Oh, don’t worry about that as the answer is ‘very’. Awards include winning the 2020 Joe.co.uk comedy award and is British Comedy Guide recommended.
“Laughing at every other word” ★★★★★ LGBT Arts Review “A great comedy mind” British Comedy Guide
Formerly a solicitor on Death Row, Keith Farnan began his comedy career in his native Ireland where he quickly reached headliner status at Dublin’s Laughter Lounge in Dublin. He shortly after made the leap to move to London, rapidly became a regular on the British circuit.
In 2011 his Edinburgh Fringe show: ‘Money Money Money’ was subsequently filmed as a documentary and aired on Irish television later that year
A hot ticket on the international comedy circuit. Keith has toured all over the world, not limited to but including: Montreal, Amsterdam, Hong Kong and The United States. His clever and laid back style has also seen him tour as far as the Middle East. With an impressive array of TV appearances which stretch to include Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, One Night Stand and RTE’s Liffey Laughs in Ireland. He was also a favourite act on Comedy Central’s Live At The Comedy Store, RTE’s The Social, as well as on BBC Three
‘Brilliant, thought-provoking and laugh out loud funny’ ‘Farnan will make you think hard and laugh even harder’ The List

Canada’s Jordan Ducharme is the middle act and your compere is Alex Boardman who cut his comedic teeth on the burgeoning Manchester scene with sets at the Frog & Bucket often followed by an all nighter at The Hacienda! Family life may have tempered the inner wild child but it’s certainly added to both the maturity and the relatability of his stand up. A gifted gag smith, Alex writes for a lot of big names and TV shows including John Bishop, A Question Of Sport and many we’re not allowed to say!
