The venue have two shows on offer, one on Sunday 12th December and one on Sunday the 19th. As always, there's the option of dining first at this Michelin recommended venue or just going for the comedy only option.

Nige, who has provided tour support for Ricky Gervais and Johnny Vegas, is the comic creation of Keith Carter and headlines the 12th December date. The Scouse Super Scally will regale you with tales of life as an up and coming (failed) musician and the best way to enjoy a life of leisure (unemployed) in Liverpool. He will also perform some songs that should only ever be heard by broad minded adults and the deaf.

Also on the bill is Chris Stokes whose calm, laid back demeanour combined with a hilarious and erudite turn of phrase has seen his act flourish in numerous venues across the country. Equipped with superb material, and the style to match, his is an act both extremely funny and original.

Keith ValentineWith an infectious mix of irreverence and enthusiastic optimism, Kent Valentine (appearing Sun 19th December) is one of the most dynamic comedians on the Australian comedy landscape – and now he’s arrived on the British comedy scene.

With his rapid-fire and quick-witted routine, Kent worked extensively in Australian comedy clubs and appearing for several years at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in addition to writing and editing a satirical website. He also made several appearances on Australian TV. He's now firmly established as a very welcome addition to the UK comedy scene.

Tim Clark is widely regarded as one of the fore fathers of modern comedy. As the frilly shirts and mother-in-law gags were swept away by a new generation of comedy in the Eighties, Tim was one of the pathfinders and one of the first comics to appear at the celebrated London Comedy Store alongside luminaries of laughter such as Alexi Sayle and Ben Elton.

 Tim has written gags for personalities including Jonathon Ross, Phill Jupitus and Mark Lamarr, and has also developed an excellent reputation as a speechwriter, writing for former England football manager Graham Taylor, footballer Neil Ruddock and a certain Gordon Brown!
