The Axis of Awesome are the World's Most Awesomest Comedy Band. They have over 60 million hits on YouTube and have toured the world all over the place. In 2011 they tore the place apart on their first ever tour of the UK, and they had such a great time they're coming back to clean up the mess they made!

You might have seen them on Comic Relief, Jason Manford's Comedy Rocks or heard them many times on The Scott Mills Show on BBC Radio 1. They have had 4 sold-out seasons at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and been garlanded with multiple 5-star reviews from most publications across the land.

Come and see the guys behind such internet mega-hits as The Four Chords Song, Rage of Thrones and Birdplane as they perform these and many other hit songs that you won't be able to get out of your head for days!

They are "Truly Awesomely Funny" (Adelaide Advertiser) and they're coming back for a limited tour of their second favourite country in the world! (The United Kingdom of England, Britain).

"Truly Awesomely funny!" 5 stars - Adelaide Advertiser

"Fringe legends! The only downside to the show? It should be longer." 5 stars - Three Weeks (UK)

"Brilliantly witty – the laughs come thick and fast" 5 stars - British Theatre Guide

"If you don’t laugh until your jaw aches and you’re clutching your sides begging them to stop then I have no polite way to finish this sentence." 5 stars - Broadway Baby

Joanna's much loved Jo Neary and Friends Night is delighted to transfer to the Komedia after months of sell-out highly original and much feted nights previous.

Shows so far have featured folk singing flash mobs, a dog in a box, sea bass being prepared for the audience on an ironing board, TV comedy stars trying new material and tons of brand new characters, trying, sometimes succeeding, sometimes failing, live music, accidental lap dances and hysterical crying with laughter. The audiences have quite a nice time too.

With live music by Pad Mclean.

On Joanna Neary:

Neary is a character actress par excellence, not only are her characters well observed and immaculately performed, but they are well written and, most importantly, funny.

A Joyce Grenfell of our age. (Guardian)

On Dyball & Kerr:

Characters so real they’re almost scary and as perfect a night out as your pennies will buy. (Stage)

On George Egg:

'a hugely entertaining variety turn' (Guardian)

'Exuberantly silly, consistently imaginative and delightfully playful' Guardian
'One of the best shows of its kind' Broadway Baby

Birthday Girls are former members of sketch group Lady Garden, 'Britain's funniest women' (Telegraph), who featured on BBC3's Live At The Electric and BBC Radio 4's Sketchorama.

Now charming, he will recollect simple tales of love, gaze dead-eyed at the ladies, recite verse and do basic talking. A lot of fairly grubby water’s sloshed under Key’s bridge of late so he’ll be churning that up. He’s also fairly interested to lift the lid on Hollywood. There’ll be some Indian poetry, Indian beer and, if he can get his act together, a spotlight. Other potential themes will be owls and maybe fairies.

Winner of five major comedy awards. 24-hour-show luminary. Novelist. Watson (host of BBC's We Need Answers, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Mock The Week regular and star of cult Radio 4 series Mark Watson Makes The World Substantially Better) returns to the road.

Brighton favourites The Hee Ha’s perform their own delightful brand of fast-paced improvised comedy scenes, sketches and songs inspired from audience shout-outs. A combination of Hee Ha’s favourites with a refreshing sprinkling of the new.

After a short interval award-winning Katy & Rach will create magical, theatre from thin air in a show that combines the humour and spontaneity of improvised comedy with the character driven richness and emotional complexity of modern theatre.

‘Howled with laughter…’ Latest 7 on the Hee Ha’s

Dispelling rumours of a break up, this ‘blackly funny three way sketch romp’ (The Scotsman) are keen to show that their personal tiffs will not get in the way of bringing you their ‘delightfully screwy’ (The Guardian) brand of sketch comedy.

But cracks are surfacing… Who thinks it should be called ‘Dave & Friends’? Which Steve is threatening to leave the group? How do you tell your husband and the ginger one that they’re holding you back?

Starring Miranda Hennessy (BBC Three’s Pramface, Sky’s Give Out Girls), David Seymour (Law & Order UK, Joan Collins in The Snickers Ad) and Steven Shapland (Harry & Paul)

Phil's comedy is a unique blend of energy, improvisation and leaps of imagination that take his audience on a joyride they'll never forget. Even Phil has no idea what might happen when he unleashes his crazy brand of improvised comedy mayhem. He possesses the rare gift of creating a space where audiences feel like they are kids again, all taking part in a practical joke.

What we do know is that there will be two halves and a break for whisky somewhere in the middle.

A full afternoon’s entertainment featuring laughter, song, magic and mystery, featuring

Karen Dalton, an outstanding vocalist who began her career in musical theatre. This lead to comedy and her latest character is outrageous yet lovable pensioner, Elsie Crumpet who can hula hoop, breakdance and sing. She will shock, yet have you rolling in the aisles with laughter.

“Brilliant comedy impressionist” – The Stage

Noel Brodie is one of the UK’s brightest young comedians with an act suitable for any audience. He seems to effortlessly bridge that old age gap between ‘mainstream’ and ‘alternative’ with a blend of observational and off the cuff improvisational material, plus some intelligent parodies. His warmth on stage, quick wit and impeccable delivery make him a very popular act at home and overseas.

Helen Ward-Jackson is the most accurate tribute to the award winning singer Adele. Helen generates energy and excitement everywhere she performs. Every audience member is left wanting more and having to remind themselves that it isn't the real deal. As well as performing hits from Adele’s multi-platinum albums, Helen will cover songs from some of Adele’s idols.

Paul Newton is one of the amazing new breed of professional magicians, fusing ground breaking contemporary magic with traditional conjuring. He stuns audiences with his card tricks and mentalism act. Close-up magic is still very much his first love, appearing at many private, public & corporate functions throughout the course of a year.

John Ripley one of the leading Max Millerimpressionist, a favourite with Cheeky Chappie fans, has performed his routine to audiences from the Theatre Royal Brighton to the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane. As well as Max Miller, John is equally adept at playing Bud Flanagan, Dean Martin, Frankie Vaughan … the list goes on.

Produced by Karen Dalton

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.

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.

Comedy with food unconventionally cooked.
