Stand Up (Again) For Slapstick: Lee Mack, Henning Wehn, Shappi Khorsandi, Boothby Graffoe, Rob Brydon
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
This event takes place at Colston Hall, which has achieved Bronze Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Lee Mack is one of the UK's most recognisable and celebrated comics. His relentless determination to have fun is marvellously infectious and leaves his audience exhausted by laughter, and his energy, finely crafted one-liners and quick ad-libs make him a force to be reckoned with on the stand-up circuit.

The self-styled 'German Comedy Ambassador in London', Henning Wehn is a regular guest on the British comedy television programme 'FAQ U' and has appeared on the BBC Radio 5 Live radio show 'Fighting Talk ', where he is 'in it, to win it', as well as two appearances on Radio 4's 'The Unbelievable Truth'.
Wehn's act plays upon the prevailing post-war stereotype of Germans; a large part of his routine is based around comprehensively analyzing and explaining his punchlines and jokes in the smallest detail.
'A diplomatic master class' (The Scotsman)
'Brought the audience to its knees' (The Daily Telegraph)
'Marvellous' (The Guardian).

As seen as on Live At The Apollo, Friday Night with Jonathan Ross, 8/10 Cats and Have I Got News For You, Shappi Khorsandi is an Iranian female stand-up comic who established herself on the London circuit back in the early 2000's. Feisty, flirty and effortlessly funny, she handles every subject with razor sharp wit. She is also the best-selling author of A Beginners Guide to Acting English and her fantastic debut novel ‘Nina is not OK’ was published by Ebury in 2016.
Shappi was also elected president of the British Humanist society in 2017.
'Makes live comedy thrilling' (Evening Standard).
'Shappi is an endearing presence and possesses a charming self-awareness that ensures consistent laughter from start to finish' (Huffington Post).
'Seriously funny and surprisingly filthy' (The New Statesman).
Shappi Khorsandi was named in Ents24's top 20 hardest-working comedians of 2016.
Shappi Khorsandi tour dates
'Boothby Graffoe is a multi-talented, darkly hilarious, grade A British eccentric, who can twist your funny bone one minute, and break your heart the next. A musical comedy act who is more musical than most musicians, and funnier than most comedians.' - Stewart Lee
'If I had to compare him to anyone, it would be Spike Milligan.' - Omid Djalili
Boothby Graffoe tour dates
This Swansea-born radio and TV presenter got his big break in 2001 with a series of short comedy monologues, 'Marion And Geoff', which were shown on BBC2. This was followed by further TV appearances as Keith Barret, presenter of a spoof chat show and, perhaps most notably, Bryn West in the sitcom 'Gavin & Stacey'.
Rob's career began at Radio Wales at the age of 20 where he narrated many radio shows, adverts and animated films, as well as later appearing on television shows and films. His stand-up shows have been equally successful, with sold out shows around the UK.
His film work includes The Huntsman: Winter’s War, Cinderella and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. In 2017 in London's West End he starred opposite Sir Kenneth Branagh in The Painkiller. His other theatre credits include Future Conditional at The Old Vic and A Chorus of Disapproval at The Harold Pinter Theatre.
