“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.

Sat 25 Oct 8pm @ Komedia £15

Tim Garland saxophones
Jason Rebello piano
Asaf Sirkis drums and percussion
Grammy award winning saxophonist and composer Tim Garland has illuminated the UK music scene for twenty years and has formed an integral part of Chick Corea’s globe-trotting band for the past 14 years.
Tim’s new album 'Songs To The North Sky' has been critically acclaimed. The Guardian and the Observer awarded the album 5 STARS and the former described the work as ‘…imaginative and consummately crafted…it feels like the culmination of a life’s work.’ Tim was also recently featured as the cover star in Jazz Journal International and interviewed for Jazzwise Magazine and BBC Radio 3 Jazz Line Up.
The new double album encompasses both aspects of Tim’s great talent: as an improviser he demonstrates his prowess with his renowned group Lighthouse, featuring long time collaborator and friend, Jason Rebello and the extraordinary percussionist Asaf Sirkis. As an award winning arranger Tim exhibits his skills writing for the Royal Northern Sinfonia on the second disc’s titular suite.
'Songs to the North Sky' is the work of an artist at the peak of his talents. The concert at St. George’s is a chance to see one of the UK’s greatest jazz stars at the height of his powers and an opportunity not to be missed. Tickets are available from The Dome Box Office (Tel: 01273 709709) and online through Brighton Ticket Shop (
