HENNING WEHN // SUN 17 FEB // BRIGHTON DOME
You couldn’t make it up; surely the German Comedy Ambassador Henning Wehn hasn’t bosched out yet another new show? And what’s he still doing here anyway? Well, his lack of transferable skills is what keeps him here and his belief that practice makes perfect is what keeps him going. If you don’t know him already from his stints on 8 Out of 10 Does Countdown, this show is a much needed call to arms. Listen, everyone: stop pondering and hand-wringing. Instead get on your bike and put your face to the grindstone!
JESS ROBINSON // THURS 21 FEB // KOMEDIA
Jess is a quadruple award winner known for her appearance on Britain’s Got Talent in 2017 as one of their most memorable impressionists. Since then, this contemporary comedian has launched her new tour No Filter where she will combine her many guises to create one hilarious concert. Packed with impressions of all your favourite stars, this show is not one to be missed.
JESSIE CAVE // 26-27 FEB // THE OLD MARKET
Famously known for playing Lavender Brown in the Harry Potter films, Jessie Cave has now taken to the stage as a comedian in her hilariously dark and giggle-worthy new show about her break up from fellow comedian Alfie Brown. Sunrise is filled with Cave’s tales of relationships, children, rejection and abuse, all weaved in with her compelling charm and side-splitting black comedy.
RUSSELL KANE // FRI 1 MARCH // DE LA WARR
Multi-award-winning actor, comedian, presenter, and author Russell Kane is known for his appearances on Live At The Apollo, Celebrity Juice and I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here Now.

THE TREASON SHOW, Fri 22 Feb, Ropetackle Centre: The Treason Show returns with their trademark side swipes at the great and good, with well-aimed punchlines and gleefully risqué parody songs.

MARK THOMAS, Fri 1 – Sat 2 Mar, The Old Market: He’s 54, the NHS is 70. Thomas thinks it’s about time they both had a check-up in his hilariously analytical show.
