Hyena Lounge Comedy Club - Saturday Night Lounge: Alun Cochrane, Andre Vincent, Nish Kumar, Danny Deegan
"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!
OVER 18 ONLY"

Alun Cochrane tour dates
After cutting his teeth performing on the pavements of the world and winning the Time Out Street Performer Of The Year Award 1987, he transferred his skills to stand-up. He toured mainly in the USA and Canada, including a support slot for Bob Hope, before returning to his native London in 1994. Over five years on the circuit in this country have seen him rise to one of the most widely respected performers doing the rounds.
'He always gets people laughing through his accomplished stand-up skills, evident in his scalpel-sharp ad-libs and outstanding one-liners' (Chortle)
'Aside from his ability to sustain a single narrative for a full hour, with thought-provoking originality and biting humour, Vincent also uses video to deliver one of the most disarming punch lines you're ever likely to see on the Fringe' (The Scotsman)
'An improvising comedy genius' (The Guardian)
'He possesses the energy of Lee Evans with the improvisational skills of Paul Merton and is one of the best comedians in the business' (The Times)
'Ferociously funny' (The Sunday Times)
'Honesty and truth (and funny lines) are comedy essentials and fortunately Vincent has come more than prepared... this corpulent comic is an utterly welcoming
presence, lacing his blokeish jollity with welcome shots of rage and giggling incomprehension' (Metro).
Andre Vincent tour dates
Rapid rising comedian and panel show regular who has hosted BBC Radio 4 Extra's topical comedy show Newsjack and hosts The Mash Report (BBC Two) with comics Ellie Taylor, Steve N Allen, Jason Forbes, Tom Neenan and Rachel Parris.
'The affable comic expertly blends comedy and commentary in a routine that snipes unpityingly at Britain’s political class' (The Guardian).
'Impressive and accomplished... full of confidently delivered, wryly witty tales that delight in the quirks and possibilities of language' (The Scotsman)
'A comedian on the up... An ingenious, witty look at identity that suggests Kumar will soon be getting known for all the right reasons' (The Times)
Nish Kumar was placed in Ents24's top 10 hardest-working comedians 2016.
Nish Kumar tour dates
Razor sharp Mancunian with a shed load of brutally funny anecdotes about his much put-upon friend 'Rudgie'. Plus wicked witticisms that belie his fresh-faced boy band demeanour. Not even bovver boys 'Five' got this near-to-the-knuckle. Runner-up in the City Life Comedian of the year 2003 and fresh from a sold-out, critically acclaimed solo show at the Manchester Comedy Festival.
'His seamless interactions with the crowd demonstrate that he's a natural-born comedian... appealing to both the young and old, female and male' (Three Weeks).
