Al Lubel in...I'm Still Al Lubel.
Bob Dylan said of his last album, "Tempest," that he didn't make it for the public, he made it for himself. Well, similarly, Al didn't make, "I'm Still Al Lubel,' for the public, he made it for himself.
He hopes he likes it.
"Al has one of the best jokes I ever heard." (Jerry Seinfeld)
"Al is a terrifically funny comedians." (David Letterman)
"You'll never forget his name." ****(Independent)

Edinburgh Preview
Sean McLoughlin: I Will Prevail

The hilarious and disgruntled stand-up returns to Edinburgh with a fantastic new show. 'This guy is an exciting talent ... he is one of the best' (Scotsman). 'Raw and different' ***** (ThreeWeeks). 'The stand-out stand-up' (Evening Standard). 'An interesting and skilful stand-up, with some routines of brilliance' (Chortle.co.uk). 'Beautifully cynical ... and he is not far off being utterly brilliant' (Edinburgh Festivals Magazine). As seen on London Live's Funny Rotten Scoundrels.

Mat Ewins: The Six Million Dollar Ewins

Six months ago, secret agent Mat Ewins died and was killed. Now he's back. Intrigue and nonsense about a spy bionically revived to complete his last mission. From the writer of Uncle Benjamin's Carpet Disaster, Billy Pasties' Cowboy Adventures and Nope! That's Not My Llama. ‘Made no attempt to explain where the rest of the cast were, simply claiming they were dead’ (ThreeWeeks). ‘Unquestionably, Mat Ewins is a very strange man ... while delivering massive hilarity’ (Guardian).

After a hard day at work sit back and enjoy the full flavour of Carlin. Savour that inner glow. Feel that rush to the head. Relish the bitter aftertaste. You may have already sampled Carlin on Comedy Central’s Alternative Comedy Experience. If not you can look him up (I know you guys don’t work all day long!). Warning: excessive consumption can lead to Carlin dependency. Please do not operate heavy machinery while intoxicated with Carlin.

'One of the most inventive stand-ups on the Fringe….. knowingly cynical and hilarious...' Chortle.co.uk

Summer is here and so are we! We're foregoing our usual mid-year break and having some fun in the sun with a birthday bash treason style. We're turning 15 years old and celebrating with our usual array of satirical sketches and silly songs. Like any good birthday do, there'll be balloons, cake and laughs a plenty. Can't guarantee Mr B won't wear his birthday suit though!

BRIDGET CHRISTIE: A BIC FOR HER
“One of the finest comedians around.” ~ The Independent
“A show that is not only full of elegant, surreal and self-aware jokes, it has heart and integrity to boot.” ~ Time Out
“A triumphant show that scores on every measure.” ~ Chortle
Bridget Christie (from BBC Radio 4’s Bridget Christie Minds The Gap, Dilemma, Heresy, News Quiz, The Unbelievable Truth, BBC’s HIGNFY, QI, It’s Kevin, and C4’s Cardinal Burns) does not wear her feminism lightly. She wears it heavily, like a suit of armour. If you think you’d enjoy a 43 year old woman shouting about gender inequality, in a Gloucester accent, for nearly two hours (including an interval), then this is definitely the show for you!

ANDY ZALTZMAN – SATIRIST FOR HIRE
Your chance to have the issues you care about satirised to order by one of Britain’s leading political comedians.
“Probably the best satirical comic we’ve produced in the last two decades. Intelligent, biting and silly.” ~ Time Out, London
“Political comedy at its best” ~ The Sunday Times
Andy Zaltzman, the British-based half of the global smash hit topical podcast The Bugle, in which he co-lampoons the planet alongside The Daily Show’s John Oliver, returns to take satirical commissions from you, the public.
Your ticket will entitle you to submit, via email, a request for Zaltzman to address an issue that you feel requires satirising.
Do you have a global gripe, a British bellyache, or a personal peeve? Are you exasperated by economics, piqued by politics, or wound up about the world? Whether it is a general grumble or a specific bleat, send in your satirico-query. Zaltzman will butter your hot potato to order, and then serve it back to you.
When ordering your ticket, simply submit your request via the comments and special requests form. Realistically, Zaltzman will not have time to satirise everyone’s pet political grievances, so make it good!
This is all set to be the most interactive satirical stand-up show of late-November 2014, as Zaltzman – star of 5 Live’s 7 Day Sunday, 7 Day Saturday, sundry stuff on BBC Radio4, and bafflingly/rightfully infrequent TV appearances (delete according to taste) – delivers freshly-hewn, individually-tailored comedic responses to the audience’s big issues.
All issues considered. Give or take. Certified by the British Institute Of Satirists & Lampooners. In 3D. Attend with care if allergic to contrived analogies.
