Get ready to Laugh Out Loud…
From our Laugh Out Loud comedy shows, our stand-up shows to our drama comedy shows… Coming up at Grand Theatre is LOTS of laughs! We’ve decided to help you out and show you what exactly is coming up that will make you L.O.L..
He’s back! It’s been a busy few years for Jason Manford since his last smash-hit stand up show but ‘Muddle Class’ promises to feature a wealth of new material about Jason growing up ‘working class’ then finding, over the years, that part of him has become ‘middle class’ – causing much confusion! Delivered with Jason’s amiable charm and captivating wit, this is a show not to be missed.
“He’s blessed with the sort of laid-back charm and sharp turn of phrase you can’t manufacture”
No, really out there. Famed for his work on Mock The Week (BBC2), Live at The Apollo (BBC1) and Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow (BBC1), in Milton Jones’ brand new show he’ll be putting his foot down and lifting the lid on the pedal bin of lies of the media. He will also be scaling the heights of fashion at the risk of falling into a terrible cravat. Milton will be talking about his life so far – the ups, the downs and why buying his own see-saw was the best decision he ever made. But perhaps he should give all this up and seek the highest office in the land – but how do you get a desk and a swivel chair up a mountain? Oh and now he wants to be Prime Minister too. Can we do worse than the politicians we already have? Yes we can!
‘Beautiful one liners so skillfully sculpted, you don’t know whether to laugh or put them on your mantlepiece’.
Starring Louise McCarthy (Only an Excuse?) and Gayle Telfer Stevens (River City), The Dolls Abroad is the must-see comedy for 2017 and the biggest comedy hit in Scotland since Mrs Brown’s Boys. After two sell-out tours of Scotland, The girls are back for one final tour of The Dolls Abroad.
Having scrubbed toilets and pubs across Scotland, The Dolls are in need of a holiday. Luckily fate intervenes when Agnes wins top prize at Big Bella’s Bingo – a holiday in Greece, and she’s taking her lifelong pal Sadie along for the ride. Expect a whirlwind of Ouzo cocktails, new foods (Tzatziki’s a food? We thought it was an infection) an unlikely romance and the realisation that a friendship found gabbing over a bleached toilet bowl is a friendship for life!
Treat yourself to a laugh at our Laugh Out Loud Comedy Club. Four top pro comedians will make you LOL! We bring you comedians off the telly from all the major panel shows and roadshows plus the best of the rest. Previously we’ve booked Jason Manford, John Bishop and Sarah Millican before they hit the big time. So come and see more brilliant comedians! The Grand Theatre reserves the right to change the line-up at any time.
Winner of the 1988 Olivier Award for Best Comedy Willy Russell’s Shirley Valentine starring Jodie Prenger. Shirley is a Liverpool housewife. Her kids have left home and she makes chips and egg for her husband while talking to the wall. Where has her life disappeared to? Out of the blue, her best friend offers her a trip to Greece for 2 weeks and she secretly packs her bags. She heads for the sun and starts to see the world and herself very differently. Willy Russell’s heart-warming comedy premiered in 1986 and took the world by storm. It was adapted into an Oscar nominated film. Now, on its 30th anniversary, Jodie Prenger stars in the first major revival of this national treasure.
“Russell’s free-flowing humour what she says is utterly compelling – like over hearing a fascinating conversation on the top of a bus.”
