Join The Noise Next Door and their special guests for a 21st century mash-up of stand-up, panel shows, and after-hours banter. With this brand new breed of comedy club not only do you get a hefty dose of The Noise Next Door’s cutting edge off-the-cuff madness and two of the country’s leading stand-ups but you’ll also see some truly unique one-off comedy curiosities.

This month the guys are joined by the wonderful Addy Van der Borgh and the legendary Phil Nichol!

Addy Van der Borgh is a one man comedy roller coaster. A stand-up circuit veteran and a regular at London’s famous Comedy Store, Addy has appeared on ‘The Stand Up Show’ on BBC1 and presented ‘TV Meltdown’ with Kirsty Gallagher on Sky 1. A “brilliant natural clown” according to The Daily Telegraph, this man will make you laugh like a mad person.

Phil Nichol is a titan of the business. Phil has won an Edinburgh Comedy Award, a Fringe First Award, a Time Out Award and no less than three Chortle ‘Headliner of the Year’ Awards! The former front-man of Corky and the Juice Pigs has appeared on ‘The Graham Norton Show’, ‘Never Mind The Buzzcocks and according to The Scotsman he’s “seismically powerful.” Blimey!



Indulge yourself in an evening of shameless entertainment.



Side-splitting gags! Mind-blowing songs! Finely tuned anarchy!



“Hilarious... A superior kind of chaos”

The Daily Telegraph



“Comedy gold... Staggeringly well executed”

The Guardian



"This is 21st century comedy at its very finest and funniest”

RICHARD HERRING – We’re All Going To Die!
After sorting out politics (Hitler Moustache), religion (Christ On A Bike), love (What is Love, Anyway?) and penises (Talking Cock) Herring returns to tackle the undiscovered country from whose bourn no traveller returns (apart from Jesus and that canoe bloke). Is death a tragedy or an excuse to have an extended lie-in? Are we snuffed out or forced to endure eternity without bodily pleasures? Death is inevitable, so let’s laugh in its face while our hearts still beat and our jaws are still attached.

Lucy Porter – Northern Soul
‘Impeccably punchlined anecdotes of the everyday. Genuinely delightful’ ~ The Telegraph
Lucy Porter, familiar from popular TV and Radio panel shows such as Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Mock The Week, and The Unbelievable Truth, returns to the UK tour circuit with Northern Soul, her best show yet.
Does geography shape our destiny? Born in Croydon to a Northern Irish dad and a Midlander mum (who met in Africa), Lucy never felt that she belonged down South. She tried moving to Manchester, marrying a Welshman and travelling the world, but she’s still – like the littlest hobo – seeking her spiritual home.

If you like food, you'll like this. Internationally acclaimed comedian George Egg is also a rather fanatical self-taught cook with a somewhat anarchic approach to making meals. Hugely entertaining (The Guardian). Being frankly more obsessed with culinary matters than comedic ones, and dissatisfied with the quality and cost of takeaways and room-service meals while touring the stand-up comedy clubs of the UK, George embarks on a project to take matters into his own capable hands.

Off The Kerb Promotions Present:
MARK STEEL’S BACK IN TOWN
The ‘Mark Steel’s In Town Show’, based on the Radio 4 series in which I write a show centred around each town, has now been to at least 5 million places. It’s a sparkling verdict on humanity that I’ve mocked them all and somehow am still alive.
I’ve stood behind a Londoner on a cliff in Dorset, who said to his wife “that lighthouse is getting on my bloody wick.” I’ve seen rivalries such as that in Corby, when I thanked a librarian for finding me a book and she replied “yes, because here we’re not like those miserable arses from Kettering”. I’ve even read a book called ‘A History Of The Railway In Didcot’ that starts “…this book is in no way a history of the railway in Didcot.”
For this show I’ve found dozens more towns to humiliate, as well as pledging to discover what makes your own town ridiculous.
There will be pictures, and ranting, some people will call things out, and you’ll be a far better audience than the miserable arses from down the road.
As well as Mark Steel’s In Town, Mark has presented the BAFTA nominated Mark Steel Lectures for BBC2, is a regular on BBC1’s Have I Got News For You and Radio 4’s Newsquiz. He’s also appeared on BBC2’s QI and Room 101. He’s written several, acclaimed books, including: Reasons To Be Cheerful and What’s Going On, and he writes a weekly column for The Independent.
‘He’s a man with a passionate desire to communicate his ideas, who is also very funny’ ~ The Guardian
‘Steel’s rapier wit cuts to the chase’ ~ The Observer
‘Excellent standup’ ~ The Times

Mark Thomas ‘Work In Progress’
Ten years ago an activist and close friend of Mark’s was exposed as a spy for BAE Systems infiltrating the movement. Now Mark wants to find him and has some questions to ask. This is a true story. The show picks up from where the award winning Bravo Figaro left off in style using interviews from friends, colleagues, activists and journalists to examine the impact of betrayal.
It is a personal and timely tale that tries to unearth what it means to be spied upon by a corporation under the sanction of the state. As usual plenty of laughs, some weird characters, documentary styles, probably a tear or two and the vague possibility that Mark might get beaten up in the making of it as he tries to find out if he wants revenge or if he can forgive a friend.

If you like food, you'll like this. Internationally acclaimed comedian George Egg is also a rather fanatical self-taught cook with a somewhat anarchic approach to making meals. Hugely entertaining (The Guardian). Being frankly more obsessed with culinary matters than comedic ones, and dissatisfied with the quality and cost of takeaways and room-service meals while touring the stand-up comedy clubs of the UK, George embarks on a project to take matters into his own capable hands.

Orgies, murders, bank robberies and boy bands. Gay virgin Rob and unstoppable womaniser Gabe have been involved in them all. These boys really need to change their hedonistic ways so they join a strange religious cult. But their new found god has some very weird rules. Wild sketch comedy with crazy Christians, sex-mad Zombies and a disco-loving Grim Reaper, 'Guilt & Shame: Going Straight' is anything but. Screaming with laughter would be an understatement. ***** (The Latest)

A voyage of discovery combining shadow puppetry, a gameshow, and ritual sacrifice. **** Best show I've seen at this year's Edinburgh Fringe ... baffling but kind of wonderful (Henry Northmore, The List). All aboard the Space Balloon for some ceremonial cleansing. Catch this hit Edinburgh show at the end of its European tour. Fun, inventive and very silly. Set in space. Contains foxes ...
