Comedy @ Sandbach Rugby Club

Comedy @ Sandbach Rugby Club has been wowing packed houses since 2015. Our next show on Friday 23rd March 2018 features Tom Binns,  the star of BBC One’s hit comedy ‘Hospital People’ with two of his funniest and best loved characters.  If you only see one comedy show this year make sure this is the one!

Ivan Brackenbury’s Hospital Radio Roadshow was a cult hit on the UK and international comedy circuits long before the BBC commissioned ‘Hospital People’.  Nominated for comedy’s highest accolade at the ivan brackenbury2007 Edinburgh Fringe Festival where The Times comedy critic declared it ‘the funniest show at the Fringe’. Ivan’s outside broadcast for the patients of a hospital radio station captures all the fun and excitement you’d expect from being in hospital, with games, give aways, patients requests and his special blend of music and chat. Wickedly funny.
