Childish Things 9: Comedy Night: Josh Widdicombe, Charlie Baker, Hal Cruttenden, Holly Walsh, Out of the Blue, Tony Law
Helen and Douglas House are proud to announce Childish Things 9.
One of the best up-and-coming comedians on the UK circuit, Josh Widdicombe is in constant demand at clubs and theatres across Britain. He is also fast establishing himself on the live circuit, regularly supporting huge comic talent such as Alan Carr, Kevin Bridges and Michael McIntyre. Star of BBC2's 'The Rob Brydon Show', Channel 4's 'Stand Up For The Week' and '8 Out Of 10 Cats', Josh was also nominated for Fosters Edinburgh Comedy Awards Best Newcomer 2011 and Chortle Best Breakthrough Act in 2011. He was also FHM Stand-Up Hero 2010.
'Guardian sports reporter turned ace observationalist Josh Widdicombe has the ability to find the sparkle in the mundane that puts him in line to be the next Sean Lock' (The Guardian)
'This is one of the most individual, accomplished, hilarious and unforgettable hours I have had this year' (The Scotsman)
'His talent for comedy is priceless' (Evening Standard).

Imagine if Jack Black, Frank Sinatra and Jethro had a son...
'Lets Dance for Comic Relief' winner Charlie Baker brings his incredible mix of jokes, song and dance to the stage. Charlie was a regular on the 2010 series of Richard Bacon's Beer and Pizza Club, starred in The Comedy Store, which aired in January 2011.
The Guardian has described the hyperactive funnyman as 'a superior take on the modern showman' and 'Devon's answer to Frank Sinatra'.
Charlie Baker tour dates
Following stand out performances on Live At The Apollo (BBC1), Let's Dance For Comic Relief (BBC1), The Royal Variety Performance (ITV1) and Mock The Week (BBC2), Hal is being strongly tipped as the next big thing.
Hal's comedy is simultaneously warm and catty, straight and camp - it's a lovely mix that has made him a regular guest on John Bishops's Only Joking (Sky1) and led to not one, but two sitcoms being produced this year.
'An absolute joy to watch... fabulous' (The Scotsman)
'Best solo stand-up show to date' (The Daily Telegraph)
'On the edge of great fame' (Fest).
Hal Cruttenden tour dates
Guildford's own Holly Walsh has many a string to her bow, being a finalist in 2006's So You Think You're Funny? and Funny Women contests, as well as presenting for CBBC. A brilliant purveyor of one-line gags and witty puns.
Holly Walsh tour dates
Since winning the Glastonbury New Act competition Canadian comedian Tony Law has become one of the most revered stand-ups on the circuit, winning the acclaim of both the critics and his peers. As testament to this Tony was honoured with the prestigious Comics' Choice 'Piece-of-Wood' Award at the 2005 Melbourne Comedy Festival.
The cheerfully absurd humour that Law knocks around into a jazzy, freeform shape has endeared him to both live and TV audiences in the UK and abroad. He's a regular face at the UK's biggest comedy clubs, and a favourite at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
'One of the finest and funniest comics on the circuit... destined for comedy stardom' (Time Out)
'Form-busting and hugely enjoyable' (The Times).
