Comedians and Carols

We ran Comedians and Carols back in 2012 before Eastgate was opened and it was a great success. On the run-up to Christmas what could be better than mulled wine, mince pies, carols and some top-notch comedy!

Hosted by Paul Kerensa, co-writer of BBC’s hit comedies Not Going Out and Miranda, the evening features stand-up routines from Paul and 3 other top comedians, interspersed with carols. With live music, mulled wine and mince pies Comedians and Carols is a fantastic way to start your Christmas.

Paul is a British Comedy Award winning writer for the BAFTA winning BBC shows ‘Miranda’, ‘Not Going Out’, ‘The Wrong Door’, ‘After You’ve Gone’, Radio 4’s ‘Dead Ringers’ (and many more).

Howard Read

Howard Read is best known for being one half (and the other half), of the Big Howard, Little Howard, the world’s first human cartoon double-act. As a stand up he is brilliantly off the wall.

It’s impossible not to be won over by this extraordinarily inventive, spectacularly silly show – The Mail On Sunday


Lloyd Griffith

Lloyd Griffith is a comedian, a professional choirboy and a good looking guy. He took his debut solo show to Edinburgh fringe festival in 2014 to rave reviews.

Griffith in particular was absolutely outstanding – Broadway Baby


Mark Palmer

With a comedic voice heavily influenced by the likes of Bill Cosby and Jerry Seinfeld, Mark’s ability to blend a theme or topic with one of today’s funniest comedy routines is unparalleled.
