The Boo has a well deserved reputation for producing world class puppet theatre and we were rather pleased when they approached us about a night of stand up comedy with no strings attached! We return on Saturday 7th April with a circuit stalwart and a star of the small screen!
Markus Birdman has played every toilet from Berlin to Sydney, from Glastonbury to the Globe Theatre, you must have seen him somewhere. If not then come witness his tall-tales of shooting puffins, Korean lullabies, tickling Germans, how to remove a python from your foot, and a superb joke about rabbis.

Live At The Apollo‘s Gary Delaney will be opening our show at The Boo. Mock The Week regular Gary thinks a good joke should be like a drunk Glaswegian: short and punchy. Gary is not only great for people who like lots of jokes, but fun for people who enjoy getting offended by jokes too.

Revered by Mancunian students for his work at XS Malarkey, Toby Hadoke‘s quick wit and charming audience banter make him a disarming compere who can liven up a lacklustre crowd or tame a feisty one, without him ever losing his unique comedy styling as a self-deprecatory and amusingly vexed curmudgeon it’s impossible to dislike. Quick witted and a verbal craftsman, he’s also politically informed and a great improviser.
Middle act is Jay Hampson. Show starts 8pm prompt and tickets are priced at £12 and £10 concessions if purchased on the day or £10 and £8 (concs) if purchased in advance.
