Tues 25 Sept

JIM CAMPBELL: ‘Nine-Year-Old Man’ and RICHARD TODD, CLINT EDWARDS and FUNMBI
7.30pm, £8.50 (£7)
Jim Campbell’s 4 star debut solo show Nine-Year-Old Man, where 30 is the new 20 and money is broken, recently won through to the Top Ten in the Amused Moose Laughter Awards. ‘Exquisite, rich, original and literate.’ Chortle
Plus three of this year’s breakthrough comedians, Richard Todd, Funmbi and Clint Edwards (the Amused Moose Laugh Off 2012 winner, People’s Champion and runner-up respectively) who will also delight comedy fans in this laughter packed showcase, which is totally teeming with talent.

YIANNI: NUMB AND NUMBER
9.15pm, £8.50 (£7)
Hyperlogical comedian Yianni, obsessed by numbers is diagnosed mildly autistic aged 33.3 (recurring) and finally understands why. An irreverant hour of number-based, logic-fuelled absurdity. Don’t panic. No maths knowledge required!
‘Wonderfully funny.‘ Time Out.

Weds 26 Sept

ALISTAIR BARRIE: URBAN FOGEY
7.30pm, £10 (£8)
Alistair is getting that little bit older, and lives in a city. He rather likes good tailoring and nice shoes, but sometimes wishes he was down with the kids, which proves he isn’t. The List called him a ‘comic dandy’, he prefers ‘Urban Fogey’. The Independent went with ‘excellent’.
‘Mightily impressive.‘ Chortle
‘A class act.‘ Scotsman

Amused Moose Laughter Award winner
MARCEL LUCONT: GALLIC SYMBOL
9.15pm, £12 (£10)
Witty acerbic Frenchman seeks an audience for one hour only, for fun, adventure and maybe more. Must have own underwear, socks and breath but be prepared to have these charmed off, laughed off and taken away respectively.
Superb stuff.‘ Time Out
Fresh, accessible and hilarious.‘ Guardian

Thurs 27 Sept

LAURENCE CLARK: INSPIRED
9.45pm, £12 (£10)
How come a Paralympic football team losing in the first round will still be thought inspirational, but when the regular England team does the same they’re a bunch of bastards? In his inimitable style that’s earned him numerous four and five star reviews, Laurence flips our idea of what’s inspirational on its head. Expect absurd logic, death-defying stunts and unusual varieties of crisps … just don’t expect to come away ‘inspired’!
Star of BBC1’s We Won’t Drop The Baby.
‘Brilliant observational five star comedian.‘ Edinburgh Guide
