Marcel Lucont – Gallic Symbol (20:30, 13th October, The Stand)

“Witty, acerbic, magniloquent Frenchman seeks willing, intelligent audience for fun, adventure, maybe something more. Must have own underwear, socks and breath but be prepared to have these charmed off, laughed off and taken away respectively.

As seen on Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC3), Live at The Electric (BBC3) and Set List (Sky Atlantic).”

Nordoff-Robbins Scotland Comedy Gala 2013 (20:30, 15th October, The Stand)

With Raymond Mearns, John Gavin, Ray Bradshaw, Teddy and host Des Clarke.”

Steve Hughes: While It’s Still Legal (20:30, 30th October, The Stand)

“Direct from sell-out shows at the Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and New Zealand Comedy Festivals, the sublime Australian comic and ex heavy-metal drummer returns to UK shores to embark upon his second solo tour.

He stormed the UK last year with his sell-out debut tour, with extra dates added due to phenomenal demand. On TV, he’s recently performed stellar sets on Live at the Apollo and Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow (BBC One), Stand Up For The Week (CH4) & One Night Stand (Dave).

This brand new show features more thoughtful, outspoken social commentary courtesy of a masterful, erudite and provocative performer. Laid-back, effortless charm and caustic anti-establishment humour from a truly unique, world class performer.”
