Stephen k amos: everyman | friday 06 december
8pm | £18
It’s easy to feel angry when mad talking heads and evil officials are looking for any slight difference of opinion to plough open and exploit. We need an everyman to bring people together using the most powerful tool we have: comedy. We need Stephen K Amos.
He’s on a mission to bring about world peace. Or, to at least bring about an evening of peace, one venue at a time. In an age when arguments are started over everything from politics to bendy straws, Stephen is rising above the anger to remind us of what we have in common.
Bringing achingly funny anecdotes, hilarious takes on the everyday and his infectious charm, Stephen K Amos will warm your cold, stiffened hearts. Join together with your fellow man and experience the universal language of laughter.
“Comedy at its purest and richest form.” The Advertiser ★★★★★
“Amos has the sort of commanding presence and confidence that could only have come from years of working the circuit.” Arts Hub ★★★★
Graham Parker | saturday 07 december | 8pm £24.50
Regarded as one of the UK’s most distinguished and original songwriters Graham Parker is perhaps best known as lead singer of Graham & The Rumour who preceded the arrival of punk rock and new wave, his career has spanned over 40 years and was recently reinvigorated when acclaimed US film producer and director Judd Apatow cast Parker in his hit film ‘This Is 40’, featuring a performance by GP & The Rumour that signalled the band to reform to play a series of now legendary come back concerts.
Expect songs from early albums with the Rumour, including picks from the re-worked Squeezing Out Sparks solo acoustic 40th anniversary album (released March 2019), his solo career (Cloud Symbols) and tunes from recent Rumour reunion albums.
The support on the Graham Parker tour will be Stephen Wilson Jnr.
