2.00pm – Hudson and Hudson – 2 Become Wand
When real-life married funny magicians decided to perform a double-act, they thought it would be the perfect combination of fun and tricks.

Two immensely engaging and talented performers’ **** ( ‘You fooled us’ Penn and Teller. ‘Ace. Brilliant. Authentic’ (Amanda Holden).

3.25pm – Eric Rushton – Real One

With this show, he not only wants to make you laugh, he wants to make you learn. To learn how, with the support of his loving family and friends, he’s always had to fend for himself. This is his (funny) story. ‘Gloriously and unpretentiously daft’ (Rolling Stone). ‘He’s a master craftsmen, with an arsenal of great one-liners’ (Scotsman).

4.50pm – Dan Tiernan – Stomp
2023 Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer nominee and ‘Mancunian wild-man’ (Guardian) returns with show two, following a totally sold-out debut last year. ‘A potent, original fount of gags’ **** (Scotsman).

7.30pm – Jacob Nussey
Jacob Nussey unassumingly draws in audiences with his deadpan style, sharp jokes, and ill-fated anecdotes with clever punchlines.
Jacob’s new show, Primed covers his time at Amazon. He divulges their secrets, preconceptions, stealing, job interviews, and why it could always be worse.
Jacob quickly established himself on the comedy circuit, after winning Bury Met Comedian of the Year and West Didsbury Comedy Festival New Act of the Year. Jacob was named by Chortle as one to watch for 2023.

8.45pm – Scott Bennett – Blood Sugar Baby
One family, one condition, one hell of a hairy baby. Scott Bennett (Live at the Apollo, News Quiz) tells the amazing true story of how his daughter fell ill with a rare genetic condition.

Soulmates are taken from the idyllic world of NCT classes and plunged into months of treatment, sleepless nights, genetics, bizarre side effects, private jets and celebrity encounters. As heard on the Parenting Hell podcast. ‘Comedy’s best kept secret’ (Evening Standard).
