Comedy at The Hawth this February

Romesh Ranganthan may have sold out and there might only be a few tickets left for Russell Kane, but never fear The Hawth has plenty more to tickle your funny bone this February.

On Saturday 1 February award-winning musical comedy performer Hannah Brackenbury presents a joyful and poignant musical tribute to the late, great comedy genius Victoria Wood in Victorious. Winner of Best Show (Funny Women Awards 2019) and Best of the Festival (Brighton Fringe 2018), this hilarious and uplifting hour-long show celebrates the life and musical work of a much-missed British comedy icon.

You won’t have to wait long for more comedy as the next night (Sun 2 February) Darren Harriott brings Good Heart Yute to the Studio. Best Newcomer nominee Darren considers himself a good person. Now he’s 30 and he’s never been in love. It can’t always be someone else’s fault? Join Darren for his trademark passion and insightful wit as he tries to work himself out.

Multiple Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee Josie Long returns to the road after five years with Tender and will be in Crawley on Wednesday 5 February. A new show about the mind-bending intensity of new motherhood; kindness, gentleness and joy; optimism for the future, oh and also, some silly voices.

Alex Edelman’s first show won an Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Newcomer, the first show by an American to do so since 1997. The follow-up was even more acclaimed: selling out its entire Edinburgh run and garnering fantastic reviews. This new show, Just for Us, was nominated for awards at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and as Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Show where it earned the prestigious Herald Angel award. See it at The Hawth on Friday 7 February.

Lucy Porter returns to The Hawth with another fantastic stand-up show on Saturday 15 February, following her last sell-out visit. At Brownies, Lucy thought she’d Be Prepared for anything as long as she had her emergency 10p for a phone box, and knew how to tie a Fisherman’s knot. Life turned out to be slightly more complicated than Brown Owl let on!

Join Catherine Bohart, the star of BBC2’s The Mash Report as she smashes stereotypes around sex, sexuality and relationships in her new show Lemon on Saturday 22 February. As seen and heard on Roast Battle, 8 Out Of 10 Cats, The Stand Up Sketch Show, Jon Richardson: Ultimate Worrier and The Guilty Feminist Podcast.

Celebs on the Farm, Coronation Street, The Stand Up Sketch Show, Live at the Apollo and The Apprentice: You’re Fired, it’s been a very big year for Stephen Bailey, he’s even bought a new microwave. He’s the best mate you want to chat to at the pub – a bit of storytelling, some inappropriate anecdotes and more sincerity than he’s ever dared have! He’s basically Holly Willoughby.

Don’t miss his new shows Can’t Be Bothered on Wednesday 26 February.

Plus, later in 2020 you can look forward to Rob Brydon, Tom Rosenthal, Paul Sinha, Jimmy Carr, Milton Jones, Kiri Pritchard-McLean, Suzi Ruffell, Ross Noble and Tim Vine.

If all of that doesn’t make your sides split, nothing will!
