Starring a host of the finest and funniest acts on the UK comedy circuit today!
Mandy Muden – She was the first woman to ever combine magic and comedy on the UK comedy circuit and has received The Magic Circle Award for Comedy in Magic. She leaves audiences astounded with both the brilliance of some (certainly not all) of her magic and in hysterics at her off-the-cuff one-liners and observations. Mandy also appeared on Britian’s Got Talent in 2018 and reached the semi finals.
Raymond and Mr Timpkins – Simply have to be seen to be believed. They are the without a doubt the maddest, silliest, stupidest, cleverest, strangest and everything else-ist as well as the funniest double act of comedians on the circuit.
Ben Langley – is best known for his cute-comedy persona and for appearing on Britain’s Got Talent. He wowed the audience and judges with his ‘Misheard Lyric Routine’, which has since gained over 18 million views on YouTube.
Be prepared, get buckled up and get ready for one of the funniest nights of your life!
He’s a legend and an Icon, a revolutionary and an immortal. John Lydon – aka Johnny Rotten – changed the face of music and sparked a cultural revolution. The front man and lyricist of the Sex Pistols and Public Image Ltd (PIL) caused a political earthquake and transformed music for good.
To coincide with the publication of his new book, the brilliant, funny and insightful I Could Be Wrong, I Could Be Right, he is touring the UK. Lydon will talk about how he sees life, along with his unique and extraordinary career, and take audience questions during a pyrotechnic, one-off tour.
Signed books will be available to buy at the venue which John will pre-sign. He WILL NOT be signing them at any pre/after showtime. BOOK TICKETS / MORE INFO
It is with great regret that we have to announce that this years show with Michael English has been cancelled due to continuing uncertainty, and a slower vaccine role out for those not based in the UK. We feel it would be wrong to roll tickets over for another year and will refund ticket holders. As soon as we can, we will get a date confirmed for 2022 with Michael and let everyone know. On behalf of Michael, his team and all of us here at the West Cliff, thank you for your understanding. Our Box Office team will be in touch shortly to arrange refunds.
The lights soften, the mood settles. An audience waits for that first moment of sound. The Big Band is poised, relaxed, but with eyes anxious for the lead. And then, as if giving body to an echo, the murmured notes of ‘Moonlight Serenade’…and the night, it seems, is suddenly full and timeless.
There are those who watch and listen who tap a shy finger to the melodies, others who follow with a silent foot-beat, still others who murmur softly through the lyrics, and those who simply permit a fleeting smile. But common to all are memories.
Recapture the sounds of a bygone era as the Nick Ross Orchestra presents ‘an unmissable evening of music and song’ – the Classic Big Band Sound of the 1940s & 50s. BOOK TICKETS / MORE INFO
‘Daniel Sloss: HUBRIS’ is the all-new, 11th solo show by Scotland’s international comedy superstar. Fresh from his 2021 Australian tour which spanned 32 shows in 30 days to over 40,000 people and hot on the heels of his previous show –the ground-breaking, global smash-hit ‘Daniel Sloss: X’ (where he performed an astonishing 300 performances across 40 countries even including an arena in Moscow)- HUBRIS is currently the largest indoor event of any genre on the planet and we are delighted to welcome it to the West Cliff Theatre.
Lauded by the ancient Greeks, hubris is the devastating, dangerous and of course exciting character trait that often led to the hero’s downfall. So, how does one of the world’s hottest stand-ups follow up on an extraordinary show like ‘X’ (dealing with sexual assault), or two Netflix specials streaming in 190 countries: ‘DARK’ (about grieving) & ‘Jigsaw’ (credited with over 120,000 breakups and cited in over 300 divorces with fans even bringing their decree nisi’s for him to autograph at shows)? With a phenomenal new show that doesn’t have a theme or a twist or require any trigger warnings. ‘Daniel Sloss: HUBRIS’ is the next chapter in this Odyssey.
Having started in comedy aged just 17, to date, Daniel has sold out six New York solo off-Broadway seasons (selling up to 5,000 tickets in a run), made10 appearances on US TV’s ‘Conan’, broken box office records at the world’s biggest arts festival, the Edinburgh Fringe (where he has already sold out 11 solo seasons and where 2021 is his 12thand is the first post-pandemic Fringe show on sale), and has to date, toured in 50 countries, the most of any comedian working to today. Marvel made him into one of their heroes and his book “EVERYONE YOU HATE IS GOING TO DIE And Other Comforting Thoughts on Family, Friends, Sex, Love, and More Things That Ruin Your Life” will be published on 12thOctober 2021 by Penguin Random House.
