Alfie Brown: Soul for Sale, 3.30pm-4.30pm.

Alfie Brown observes (occasionally screaming) the hypocritical standards of censorship in popular music, the irresponsibility of producing bad art and the unscrupulous homogenisation of comedy, whilst making you laugh. He also (comedically) observes a world in which greed comes before truth and how the heavyweights of the culture industries keep us addicted for profit, whilst - still - making you laugh.

Isy Suttie: Work in Progress, 5pm-6pm

Isy is a long-time musical comedian whose leftfield songs, stand-up and characters enchant audiences all around. Also an actor and writer, she is known to many as Dobby from Peep Show (Channel 4).

Daniel Simonsen: Champions, 6.30pm-7.30pm

From Russell Howard’s Good News, the Simon Amstell tour and the benefits office in Bethnal Green, the ‘brilliantly offbeat’ (Guardian) Norwegian stand-up was awarded the prestigious title of Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Newcomer 2012.

Sarah Pascoe: The Musical, 8pm-9pm

The uplifting tale of ‘Sara’ who lived from the 1980s to 2012. Sara was born as a baby, meaning she could neither talk nor walk, until she faced adversity in the face, and grew up. The show includes catchy tunes and many morals.

Tickets: £6 (per show).

Box Office: 01392 434169.
