Fri 10 Feb and Sat 11 Feb
Sarah Millican
Thoroughly Modern Millican

After selling out all 120 dates on her debut tour, Sarah Millican is back on the road with a new show.

Ever wondered how to make a home made treadmill? The practicalities of an orgy? Or what to do when you don't like parties but do like party food? Wonder no more.

If your glass is half full, she'll top it up.

"Watch her transition to national treasure begin here." Sunday Times

Tickets: Ring for availability

Sun 12 Feb (Matinee Show)
The Chuckle Brothers
In The Return of Pirates of The River Rother 2 In Stranger Tights

Ahoy there landlubbers! A vast behind and prepare to splice the main brace as the boys go on a full blown swash-buckling adventure at sea!

Paul and Barry are visiting a theme park for the day and decide to brave going on one of the daring water rides. Once inside, they are leaning on a wall when they accidentally fall through and find themselves magically transported back in time in to a world of pirates and sunken treasures.

Don’t miss this spectacular pirate adventure! Magic, mystery and mayhem are guaranteed. Fun and laughter for all the family and grandmother as well!

Tickets: £14
Children 16 and under: £13.50

Mon 13 Feb
Greg Davies and Friends
A benefit in aid of the Stroke Association

Greg Davies (Mock the Week, Ask Rhod Gilbert, Dave’s One Night Stand, Edinburgh Comedy Award Nominee) returns to De Montfort Hall for another spectacular gala in aid of The Stroke Association.

Greg has invited his stand-up friends for a comedy love in, all in the name of charity. Not to be missed!

Tickets: £20

Wed 15 Feb
Chris Addison
The Time is Now, Again

Fresh from The Thick of It, Mock The Week, Have I Got News For You and his sell-out 2010 tour, Chris Addison, the man who put the 'Chris Addison' into, "I see Chris Addison is touring again," is touring again.

He's written a brand new show, The Time Is Now, Again, specifically for the venue this website refers to.* (*And about 40 others, but the point still stands.) Top class stand-up from one of the classiest, toppiest stand-ups around. You should come and see him.

Chris will also be hosting the brand new comedy showcase Show & Tell coming to Channel 4 this autumn.

"Exquisite, super-smart solo show … gloriously funny." Time Out

Tickets: £20 + £1.50 booking fee on credit/debit cards

Thu 16 Feb
Dave Spikey
Words Don't Come Easy

Inspired by the amazing audience reaction to his deconstruction of song lyrics in his Best Medicine Tour combined with his fascination with the vagaries of the English language, Dave’s hilarious new show examines many more situations in life where words really don’t come easy.

These include tongue-tied parents explaining the facts of life, ridiculous newspaper stories, poems, pathetic adolescent chat-up lines, hospital speak, learning a foreign language and an extended selection of song lyrics that range from the lazy through surreal to the ridiculous.

Throw in a Champion the Wonder Horse sing-a-long, a look at Ancient Abyssinian Contraception, Rubbish School Trips, Epidural Anaesthesia and The Last Supper and you have all the ingredients for a rich and spicy comedy casserole - a sort of Lexicon-Carne! Sorry.

Tickets £18.50
