What's on


- Matchbox Comedy Club Christmas Special

Matchbox Comedy Club presents a monthly line up of “outside of the box” funny. Every single one of the acts on our bill comes with our personal recommendation. Like an overexcited psychopath child with a butterfly collection, we’ve stuffed a bunch of our favourite comedy people into a matchbox and put them on display. It’s a carefully curated living museum of funny.

Ask almost anyone about our headline act and they’ll agree she’s a right ol’ up and come-r. Stephanie Laing is disarmingly honest, affably whimsical and often completely filthy. Quirky close to the bone stand up with a wonky charm.

Daft ball of energy Jack Evans brings us stand up that ricochets from madcap to cerebral. A captivating stage presence, off kilter jokes from the acerbic to odd.

Also joining us will be the “impish” Edy Hurst, a performer known for his sweetly silly wordplay, whimsical songs and ridiculous characters. Winner of Tickled Pig 2013, “oddball” Edy brings us abstract-ish comedy jokes and a smiling face.

Our final act is offbeat and ultra-surreal character act Frank Foucault. Welsh Unsigned Stand up Awards Finalist 2015, “meek” and “bizarre” Frank is a low key explosion of inventive ideas disguised as utter nonsense.

Join our four intrepid comedians as they try new material and generally lark about.

PRAISE FOR STEPHANIE LAING: “A great stand-up. Super smart in the fun way that always works magic.” Phil Kay

PRAISE FOR JACK EVANS: “Quick witted, frenetic and prone to bouts of crippling self loathing” Manchester Wire

PRAISE FOR EDY HURST: “An abstract guitar-playing impish minstrel of a man, Edy is a joyous comic to behold. All unabashed grins and oddball lingo he’s sure to enchant” Manchester Wire
