“Comedy, music and more…”
Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun
With an improvised poem, your show we bid start
The story may be happy, the story may be dark!
Emotions run high and form the core of our show
How far will you come, how far will we go…
We’ll share words of wisdom, sadness, love and fear
For you beautiful beings, to come, watch and hear.
Who knows what we will create, the scene is unsure
We just hope you leaving wanting oh so much more
With rhymes, lines and limericks and scenes galore
Our goal is to take you to improv’s far shores
So do come and play, have a laugh and your say
Share this show, share this moment and after please stay…
(for beer of course!)
Entry just £5
An evening of mind-melting mentalism and confusing card conjuring.

A double-bill of Edinburgh comedy previews, from TV quizzer, stand-up and former doctor Paul Sinha and “writer, actor and fat model” (her words) Lucy Frederick.
“Comedy gold – be it his dealings in his day job as ‘The Sinnerman’ on ITV’s The Chase and the Z-list celebrity shenanigans that inevitably brings, and his navigation up the quiz league table of London’s various pub quizzes. Personal but not overbearing, Sinha lets you in enough to see what makes him tick but never where he’s going next, a skill that makes every punchline feel fresh.” – The Skinny
“Frederick produces a strong and diverse show, with just a hint of non consensual audience participation. Wonderfully light hearted and enjoyable” – ThreeWeeks
Advance tickets £7+b.f. / £10 on the door.

HOW TO BE A PSYCHIC CONMAN
with Ash Pryce
Roll up! Roll up! Roll up! Gather ye round the traveling caravan, as Snake Oil Salesman Ash Pryce demonstrates the miraculous curative abilities of psychic surgery, taught to your humble trickster by a wise man in the Philippines (or a magicians tool book, whichever sounds more wondrous). See with amazement the telekinetic forces at work as you learn how to move objects with your mind, psychically manipulate your finest silverware and read the minds of your peers. Or maybe, it’s all just a trick?
The show will involve demonstrations and explanations of telekinesis tricks, metal bending, psychic surgery and remote viewing as well as look at government funded research into psychic phenomena, and the shoddy protocols that allowed “psychics” to beat the legendary Zener card experiments in the 1930s.
And if that wasn’t enough, interspersed throughout the show will be numerous on stage demonstrations of mentalism to add an extra layer of entertainment to the proceedings.
Stagetime Promotions Magician of the Year 2017, and Edinburgh Horror Festival Sell out performer 2016 and 2017, Ash Pryce brings his crowd pleasing mix of paranormal illusions, comedy and entertainment to the UK as part of a summer tour of 2018. Described as “ a naturally funny guy [who] won’t allow his audience to be bored” (edfringereview.com) and “A great showman” (NottinghamLive), Ash presents a mix of entertainment, scepticism and magical treats.
Find Ash on most social media as “Psychic Conman” and check out his website at www.psychicconman.co.uk

A double-bill of Edinburgh comedy previews, from former Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee Tony Law and last year’s Best Newcomer nominee Darren Harriott.
“If you miss The Mighty Boosh or early Vic and Bob you will love paddling in Law’s stream of consciousness. As for making sense of his lunacy he offers a workable critique of his style: ‘he mooches around a bit and we fill in the blanks.’ Watching someone mooch around has never been such fun.” – Evening Standard
“It’s not often you get a debutant comedian who’s as ready for TV as Darren Harriott is. His slick, extroverted style would translate well on to the gogglebox. He’s got a charm and cheekiness about him that wins over audiences with ease. What marks him out is that he’s a very mainstream act who talks about some very un-mainstream, dark aspects of his life, and he does an impressive job of squaring this circle. This is a classic example of a comic who won’t be playing rooms this size for much longer” – Chortle
Advance tickets £7+b.f. / £10 on the door.
