Four top pro comedians 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.

Dave Longley‘s towering stage presence and intensity, combined with his cutting wit have made him one of the most popular and controversial circuit comics in the UK. Whether it’s doling out thought-provoking insights or reveling in toilet humour, he is a gifted wordsmith with great audience interaction skills. David writes across a variety of genres and is currently working on sitcom, drama, and documentary script ideas. He has written and performed four full-length festival solo shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and has also written for 8 Out Of 10 Cats (Channel 4) each one greeted with critical acclaim. Longley has humble silliness which ingratiates him to audiences, he delivers deadpan accounts of his everyday life which are shockingly honest, well considered and divinely funny, maintaining a rapport with the audience that is at once edgy and accessible, engaging the whole room. He is a regular headline act at comedy clubs all over the country and is in demand so catch him whilst you can!

“Proves that comedy can say something important and, crucially, still be funny”  The Metro

“Challenging, puerile, brutal and hilarious. How’s that for dissonance?”  The Skinny

Adam Rowe started comedy as a child prodigy and within a year was named Liverpool Comedian of the Year. An affable nature, likability and 100mph approach make him an instant hit with any crowd. As a result of this, he’s now a regular at the UK’s biggest comedy clubs and is widely regarded as one of the industry’s most sought after acts. His true to life stories leave an audience feeling like they’ve made a new friend come to the end of his performances, and it’s not uncommon for them to be screaming for more!

“True Comic Brilliance” Liverpool Echo

“Watch out as Adam becomes a household name” Media City “Nothing short of prodigious” The Skinny

Hot newcomer Ross Smith is taking the comedy circuit (and the internet) by storm. Having only started gigging in 2015, he’s a regular at some of the capital’s biggest comedy clubs. His personable, relaxed style and contemporary material, underpinned by clever wordplay and self-deprecating humour, has made him one of the country’s most exciting emerging acts.

In 2018, he made headlines around the world when he agreed to go on holiday with complete strangers, taking the place of another man called Ross Smith. His viral adventure and the aftermath is the subject of his debut Edinburgh show, I Am Ross Smith.

Featured in The Times Critical List: Edinburgh Special

‘Laugh-out-loud gags and more subtle jokes that are cleverly set up … Go and see I Am Ross Smith’ Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke

‘An assured debut, and it’ll be great to hear more from him’ The List

‘Smith keeps his comedy smart, keeps the crowd entertained and keeps the dull moments at bay with an impressive show that has one thing few Fringe shows do: a truly unique story’ Ed Fest Mag

“One of my favourite acts.” Joel Dommett

“Hilarious and original.” Nish Kumar

Plus, Damion Larkin will often improvise his entire set to hilarious effect. There are no genuine comparisons to this man. He is a versatile and creative comedian who always leaves audiences wanting more.

“Industrious in rotating his material…which is warmly and intelligently told”  Chortle

“One of the country’s top new acts” BBC (this was years ago so now he’s just one of the country’s comedians! haha)

All line ups are subject to change but don’t worry, we’ll only replace them with someone just as funny!
