Damian Kingsley – Knock Knock

Damian's life unravelled last year when he lost his fiancé, day job and flat all in the same month. Weaving recent stories with childhood memories, Knock Knock is a brilliant storytelling show about identity, trust, family and friendship. The show also explores the reasons why Damian came up with his penniless tour raising money for Shelter, which took him from Land’s End to Edinburgh over 120 gigs and six months with or money or transport. 


Tanyalee Davis – Actual Size

Tanyalee Davis is the little lady with the big voice! As seen on BBC’s The John Bishop Show and Live At The Apollo Christmas Special, Tanyalee is back with a live show packed-to-burst with hilarity. She may be just 3-foot 6-inches tall, but Tanyalee’s gargantuan personality has ensured that she stands tall amongst the comedy greats. With a comedy profile that spans continents, Miss Davis leaves audiences reeling from her torrent of gags, feisty attitude and unique life story. Actual Size is an hour of Tanyalee’s most hard-hitting jokes mixed with a healthy dose of side-splitting tales from her absolutely absurd adventures.

Ages 16 & over only.
