Robert Newman
A History of Western Philosophy (Work in Progress)
11 October

Join Rob as he premiers brand new (and usually controversial) material inspired by his recent award-winning Radio 4 series Neuropolis.

Over the last twenty-five years Rob has continually surprised audiences with innovations, surprise changes of direction and inspired thinking. This show will be no exception to that tradition.

What critics have said:

“He is the funniest comedian I have ever seen…a passionate, chaotically brilliant comedian.” The Sunday Times

“Newman combines proper scientific argument with dazzling shafts of wit.”
The Times

“He is one amazing comedian”
Time Out

“Newman’s comedy probably has more constituent parts than any other comic’s and yet the whole is still greater than the sum of those parts…. Very, very funny.”
The Scotsman

“A performance that mixes hard fact with dizzying flights of comedic fantasy.’
The Guardian

Kit Holmes

12 October

Enjoy an uplifting evening of gorgeous guitar, poignant lyrics and feisty fiddle playing – all with Kit’s incredible sense of fun!

Kit’s trademark sultry vocals and virtuoso guitar playing have wowed audiences across the UK through extensive touring with the guitar hero, John Etheridge. The Observer described her music as “Macy Gray meets Nick Drake”, and both Bob Harris and Andy Kershaw have featured her on their BBC shows.

Recent gigs include: Paul McCartney’s LIPA; the Anne Frank Awards at the BBC; a performance for Bill Bryson and Andy Kershaw and a headline show at the International Guitar Festival of Great Britain. Kit’s third album, Driving into the Blue, which features the legendary double bass player Danny Thompson, was met with high critical acclaim.

Expect an enthralling and energetic live performance of “blues-driven roots with a soul sensibility”.

Kit Holmes: Vocals, Guitar & Fiddle. With Al Greenwood: Guitar

What critics have said:

‘Impressive…a new British guitar heroine’
The Guardian

‘Full of warmth…an absolute delight’

Schoolhouse Productions
by Jim Cartwright
13 October

Welcome to the world of the Landlord and Landlady! Come in, settle down, and grab yourself a pint!

Jim Cartwright’s Two takes you down to your local tavern, where you’ll meet all the regulars and a few of the irregulars. You’ll get a warm hello for the Mr. and Mrs. who run the joint, though there’s no love lost on each other.  Brimming with pathos and humour, this modern classic is a tour-de-force as two actors take on every role; from the punters to the caustic, bickering owners.

Schoolhouse Productions is a new venture for Bristol’s Alma Tavern Theatre, and was their debut in-house production.  Schoolhouse have teamed up with newly appointed Resident Director, Anna Friend, who recently won multiple awards for her production of Polly Stenham’s Tusk Tusk, including Best Play, Best Director and Best Performance by a Youth Group.

Justin Moorhouse: People & Feelings

14 October

From Live at the ApolloPhoenix NightsThe News Quiz (BBC Radio 4) and Fighting Talk (BBC 5Live). A little slimmer but still as “belly laugh funny” (Manchester Evening News), everyone’s favourite northern charmer is back on the road and better than ever.

After touring last year’s show, of which The Guardian said “the amount of first-rate comic craft that goes into his deceptively simple routines is worthy of admiration” he’s had a think about people. And feelings. About people Justin knows, their feelings and how he feels about them. And they about him.

It’ll be a (very) funny show. Promise.

What critics have said:

‘He charms the pants off the crowd’
The Sunday Times

‘Comedic tour-de-force… brought a tear to a critical glass eye”
The Herald

‘Simultaneously down-to- earth and out of this world”
The List
