Hyena Lounge Comedy Club - Saturday Night Lounge: James Acaster, Chris Stokes, Barry Dodds, Joe Lycett
"Every Saturday we bring you four of the funniest stand-up comedians from around the world to our friendly and intimate venue in a two and a half hour long laughter-fest aimed at comedy fans, couples and small groups.
We are NOT suitable for large single sex groups such as Stag or Hen parties, we operate a strict NO FANCY DRESS policy and the maximum group size we allow is 12. Please don't try to get round this by booking separately as you will be refused admission without a refund and we'd all rather avoid this embarrassment on the door!
STRICTLY OVER 18 ONLY"

Effortlessly confident, James's appreciation for the whimsy and detail of everyday life are a breath of fresh air. His laid back style, playful wit and appetite for the unconventional make for an evening of mirth and hilarity, and a night in his company is a treat to behold.
Since winning Laughing Boy New Act of the Year, James has gone from strength to strength appearing on Dave's One Night Stand, Russell Howard's Good News (BBC Three), Mock The Week (BBC Two) and Show & Tell (E4) whilst also playing to over 100,000 people on tour with Milton Jones.
'Curious, original, immensely enjoyable stuff' (The Daily Telegraph)

'Reminiscent of Stewart Lee or Richard Herring but suffused with enough of his own personality to sound crisp and fresh' (The Independent)
'Stand-up of the highest most playful order' (The Guardian).
James Acaster was placed in Ents24's top 10 hardest-working comedians 2016.
James Acaster tour dates
Calm, laid back demeanour, combined with a hilarious and erudite turn of phrase. Chris Stokes has supported Milton Jones on tour. He quit stand-up for a while and worked as an RSPCA van driver, but returned with a discernible confidence to tell some amusingly interesting accounts and theories.
'A comedic star' - Huddersfield Examiner.
Chris Stokes tour dates
This charming Geordie motor-mouth has audiences in the palm of his hand, even when discussing the most near the knuckle subjects. With material ranging from the supernatural to euthanasia, everything is delivered with a cheeky smile that wins over even the most stony faced of the audience.
A finalist in various high profile competitions such as Jimmy Carr’s Comedy Idol and Jongleurs Last Laugh Comedy Search, his twinkly eyed, playful demeanour disarms judging panels, industry experts and audiences alike, allowing him flirt coquettishly with topics that are traditionally a little more unusual.
'Hugely enjoyable... a ton of great stories... one to watch' (The Guardian)
'Razor sharp humour' (Metro)
'... the appealing and perceptive Barry Dodds... captivates his audiences with his energy, spirit and tantalizing wit. His mix of surprisingly uncanny and irrepressibly cheeky material leaves them wanting for more' (Funhouse Comedy).
Barry Dodds tour dates
Joe Lycett is a hugely talented comedian with an unaffected, relaxed and effortless stage presence. An appealing, engaging and natural performer. His comedy career started off at Manchester University, winning the Chortle Student Comedy Award in 2009.
'Imaginative and cheekily subversive comedy... entertainingly mischievous... An intensely charming and talented young comic' (The Guardian)
'Joe Lycett is one of the strongest emerging comedy talents we've seen in a long time. This young man has a huge future' (Time Out)
'A delightfully natural style that builds a real connection with the audience... an accomplished storyteller... Finds brilliance in what could be merely workaday' (Chortle)
'Rising talent Joe Lycett already possesses the confidence and relaxed, homely charm of an old campaigner' (The Times).
