Barnstormers Comedy Club (May)

About this event

Enjoy unbeatable stand-up comedy on the third Saturday of every month from some of the biggest names on the UK comedy circuit (and beyond)!

With three different acts a month alongside a top MC, this is Saturday night entertainment at its finest!

Tez Ilyas is one of the most celebrated stars in British comedy.
Ilyas achieved phenomenal success with his debut stand up hour TEZ Talks. A sell out run at the Soho Theatre and his own Radio 4 series based on the show followed, with a second series quickly being recommissioned. His highly anticipated follow up show Made in Britain went on to sell out every single performance (including extra shows) at the Edinburgh Fringe and gained spectacular critical acclaim, with a smash hit nationwide tour the following year.

‘Ilyas has a slickness more reminiscent of US comics, and the gags to back it up, though his most prized asset could yet be his bold, subversive streak’ – The Guardian

Award-winning comedian James Ellis is a rising star in the UK comedy scene.

His sharp observational humour and clever punchlines have won him rave reviews from critics and audiences alike.

James’ comedy is rooted in everyday life, and he has a knack for finding the funny in the mundane. A gifted writer, his jokes are well-crafted and delivered with precision.

In 2021, James was named South Coast Comedian of the Year, and was a regional finalist for the BBC New Comedy Award. He is currently on tour supporting Angela Barnes on her “Hot Mess” Tour.
