Alison Spittle: Wet

Alison Spittle: Wet

Fresh off the back of a complete sell out run at The Edinburgh Fringe and voted one of the best reviewed shows in the comedy section, Alison is diving in to her first UK tour.

Alison loves to do star jumps in the water. She also likes to watch people fight in chip shops. Her two worlds collide as a fight breaks out in aqua-aerobics and she's never felt so alive. When the foam settles, Alison realises she's an outwardly nice person who lives for confrontation. Host of BBC Sounds Wheel of Misfortune, The Guilty Feminist podcast and writer for Have I Got News For You.

Laura Smyth: Living My Best Life

Laura Smyth: Living My Best Life

Star of Live At The Apollo, Laura Smyth’s brand-new show explores all aspects of modern life. She has fun mugging off all the madness of parenting, childhood, school, marriage, social media, work, and chasing her dreams.

In her own inimitable style, she gets to the truth of the human experience, treading the line between bluntness and warmth throughout. Ultimately, she is asking how ‘living your best life’ is actually achieved – heads up: it don’t involve Instagram!

Fresh from tour support for Jack Whitehall and Michelle de Swarte, this is her at her uncensored and ridiculous best.

Tom Houghton: Absolute Shambles

Tom Houghton: Absolute Shambles

After an incredible sold-out debut run, the man who asked us “do you ski?” is leaving his home in the Tower of London (for good). Catch him as he departs on a second triumphant tour across our nation armed with even more outrageous takes, unbelievable tales, and biblical chat to leave you bowled over with laughter.

Having amassed a loyal fan base of over a quarter of a million followers the multi-viral, social media sensation is delving even deeper into his ludicrous life as he tries to smarten up the not so honourable aspects of himself. Take a look at the pitfalls of online celebrity, the perils of post-palace living and find out that, in an age where everyone is so obsessed with the veneer of virtual contentment, maybe it takes crashing back down to reality to discover where happiness truly lies.

As seen on Comedy Central and tour support for Milton Jones.
