Shambles is a night featuring the best up and coming new talent along with some of the biggest names in comedy.

Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Andrew's combination of sci-fi twists on real life, long hair and impeccable manners have led him being revered on the London comedy circuit. Activist, misanthrope and transvestite waxes comical about the decline of British industry.
'One of the funniest comedians on the circuit at the moment... hitting new heights
of comedic brilliance' (Timeout)
'So funny I put him on my new TV show' (Steve Coogan)
'... talented, intelligent and unique. Bringing the spirit of the alternative '80s back into the comedy circuit' (Dazed & Confused)
'clever comedy for those who like their laughs original, off-kilter and cliché-free' (Three Weeks)
'... comedian, metalhead, amateur occultist and musician... Sharp, artistic and unique, his innate confidence and fondness of absurdity leaves his audiences feeling full of glee' (Funhouse Comedy).

'One of the finest comedians around' (The Independent)

'... another cracking show from the current queen of crusading UK comedy...' ( The Guardian).

You'll hear many descriptions of Nick Sun; from erratic, acidic, confrontational, surreal and subversive, but these all become seemingly pointless when you let him loose on a stage. His approach to comedy is unlike anything you're likely to have seen before. A man confused and jaded with the comedy world.
'If you don't like Nick Sun, you suck at being an audience' - Doug Stanhope.

It is the infantile, oddly macabre quality of Lee's stage shows that makes them terribly watchable. A striking figure: skinny and slight and akin to a camp Yorkshire Johnny Rotten in both manner and dress sense. He performs his shows with equal amounts of amiability and gusto and with a healthy dollop of the unearthly thrown in. Incredibly funny, odd and beguiling to watch.
Ross Lee tour dates
Renaissance man. Impresario. Bit of a tw*t. Just some of the words Harry has used to describe himself in this bio. During his time in the comedy industry he has published and edited the UK's longest running nationally distributed comedy magazine The Fix, been the comedy editor for the Guardian Guide, directed several sellout critically acclaimed shows and what at this stage seems like the high point of his career appeared as a panelist on Loaded TV's flagship book show 'Lads Lit'.
He currently oversees online comedy channel Raybot and hosts and produces his hugely popular residency Shambles in London.
'Hilarious' (Justin Long, Star of Die Hard 4.0 and Dodgeball)
'Harry is a train wreck that's already happened' (Rich Fulcher, Mighty Boosh)
'Self-deprecating, self-sabotaging, deliberate shambles of a showman. But weirdly, it works' (The List).
