Within a couple of years of realising a long held ambition to become a comedian ANGELA BARNES had won the 2011 BBC New Comedy Award and so began the career of one of the brightest stars in comedy.

Within a couple of years she had joined the cast of the Channel 4’s topical show ‘Stand Up for the Week’ became a regular panelist on Radio 4’s The News Quiz and began hosting Radio 4’s ‘Newsjack’. She has gone on to become a regular on ‘Mock The Week’ and made a hugely successful appearance on BBC1’s ‘Live At The Apollo’ as well as appearances on ‘Russell Howard’s Good News’, ‘Eddie Izzard’s Laughs in the Park’ on BBC Two and Dave’s ‘Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled’

She has continued to be a regular on the stand-up and festival circuits and takes as break from her current UK tour to play at the House Of Fun.

“Angela Barnes is the best mainstream female comedian I’ve seen since Sarah Millican… I can’t be any clearer than that can I?” – EVENING STANDARD

KATIE MULGREW really likes making people laugh. It’s kinda her thing and she gigs all over the country in comedy clubs doing just that, to great success.

She’s done lots of lovely things whilst being a comedian like being on BBC Radio 4 and BBC Radio 2. She got to be very silly indeed on a couple of episodes of the CBBC show, ‘The Dog Ate My Homework’.

She won the inaugural 2015 Liverpool Hope playwriting prize with her play ‘OMNIBUS’ which was staged at the Unity theatre in June 2017 in a co-production with the Liverpool Royal Court to rave reviews!

“…enjoyable, lively and very funny. A great hour of comedy.” – Metro

Stephen Bailey: Can’t Think Straight

“Bailey has a natural chemistry with his audience and this is where he truly comes into his own” – Broadway Baby

Stephen Bailey is a comedian, television personality and writer with a brand of gossipy humour that has made him one of the most enjoyable acts on the UK comedy circuit today. He is both potty-mouthed and incredibly quick thinking with audiences relating to his sassy style as he takes to the stage with fantastic natural wit and masses of charisma

His star has been rising over the last few years as he has become a regular face on Channel 5’s ‘Big Brother’s Bit on the Side’ and made guest appearances on numerous shows including ITV2’s ‘Safeword’, ‘CelebAbiilty’, W’s ‘Celebrity Advice Bureau’ and Channel 5’s ‘It’s Not Me, It’s You’.

​​He has recently supported Katherine Ryan & Jenny Eclair on their UK tours and this year sees Stephen travel the country with his own headline tour as he heads out with his five-star, critically-acclaimed show ‘Stephen Bailey: Can’t Think Straight’, which he excitedly brings to Leeds

“Bailey is an absolute crowd-pleaser, getting the room howling with laughter.”

An Evening With Rob Schneider

A house-hold name and a bona-fide comedy star, Rob Schneider is well known around the world for his trademark blend of character and comedic acting whilst also becoming one of the most popular stand-ups in America and plays Leeds as one of only five dates on an exclusive, low-key taster-tour.

He began his stand-up career while still in high school and an appearance on the HBO ‘Annual Young Comedians’ special led working on the seminal sketch comedy series ‘Saturday Night Live’ where he won three Emmy Awards as part of the writing team. He swiftly graduated from writer to full cast member and for five years starred in the influential comedy series alongside Adam Sandler, Chris Farley, Mike Myers, David Spade and Chris Rock.

He went on to star in the 1999 feature film ‘Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo’ and the sequel ‘Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo’ followed by ‘The Animal’, ‘The Hot Chick’ and the family comedy, ‘The Benchwarmers’ as well appearances in ‘Muppets from Space’ and the 2004 remake of ‘Around the World in 80 Days’

Schneider has also appeared in numerous comedies starring his SNL comrade Adam Sandler including ‘Grown Ups’, ‘The Waterboy’, ‘Big Daddy’, ‘Little Nicky’, ‘50 First Dates’, ‘The Longest Yard’ and ‘You Don’t Mess with the Zohan’.

On TV he appeared on numerous episodes of the popular shows ‘Seinfeld’ and ‘Ally McBeal’ and was a frequent guest on the late-night US variety program ‘The Tonight Show with Jay Leno’ including an infamous episode where he showed up in drag as actress Lindsay Lohan after the latter cancelled following a controversial arrest for drink driving.

In the last few years, Schneider starred as the title character in the CBS-TV situation comedy ‘Rob’ and when the series came to an end he created the docu-series ‘Real Rob’ for Netflix, which focuses on the day-to-day hijinks of his life and includes real-life wife, and daughter and marks the first time any actor has ever written, produced, starred in, directed and financed a television show.

Advance tickets are available online now from SEE TICKETS, TICKETWEB, LUNA TICKETS & SKIDDLE (all subject to their booking fees).  Also available in person from the venue where there are no booking fees. All shows are £2 per ticket more if purchased on the door (subject to availability).
