Looking for a laugh? You’ll be spoilt for choice with these nine amazing comedians all heading to Britain’s Ocean City this spring. Enjoy big names and the full arena experience at Plymouth Pavilions, or head to B-Bar for intimate gigs with comedians you might not have discovered yet.  

Dara O’Briain

Plymouth Pavilions – 7 March

One of the most recognisable faces on British TV having hosted shows including Mock The Week and Robot Wars, and an intelligent, fast-talking and downright funny live performer, Dara brings his new show ‘Voice of Reason’ to Plymouth.

Jack Barry

B-Bar – 14 March

Acclaimed stand-up and compulsive over sharer Jack Barry has been reading up on sex, love and relationships. Come and see the show in the intimate settings of B-Bar for thrills, spills, and slip ups. It's all good fun... but we don’t recommend taking your parents.

Nish Kumar

Theatre Royal Plymouth – 30 March

You’ll probably recognise Nish Kumar as the host of The Mash Report, which can be found on BBC 2 – or on a viral Facebook video. His new show, ‘It’s in Your Nature to Destroy Yourselves’ includes jokes about politics, mankind’s capacity for self-destruction and whether it will lead to the end of days: all good fun stuff!

Bilal Zafar

B-Bar – 11 April

Award-winning stand-up, Bilal Zafar’s new show ‘Lovebots’ is fighting back against the bots spreading hate, fear and influencing how we vote on social media.

Stu Goldsmith

Barbican Theatre – 27 April

Stu Goldsmith’s new comic odyssey is all about how it works out in the end…and whether anyone cares. Everybody will enjoy this intelligent comedy - but it’s probably of particular interest to anyone over thirty who've lost touch with all their old friends and can't eat just one pain au chocolat.

Andy Ford

Theatre Royal Plymouth – 28 April

Plymouth’s favourite pantomime star is bringing his riotous and often ridiculous stand-up show, ‘Andy Ford: Live and All Over the Flippin’ Shop!’ to the city – bring the whole family along for a night of laughter and mayhem.  

Bill Bailey

Plymouth Pavilions – 13 and 14 May

One of the country’s greatest stand-up comics, Bill Bailey brings his new show ‘Larks in Transit’, a compendium of travelers’ tales and the general shenanigans of twenty years as a travelling comedian, to Plymouth. Join Bill as he tackles politics, philosophy and the pursuit of happiness.

Angus Deayton

Red House Theatre (Plymouth School of Creative Arts) – 19 May

Angus Deayton has reunited with Helen Atkinson Wood, Michael Fenton Stevens and Philip Pope to take classic scripts from the award-winning BBC Radio 4 comedy show ‘Radio Active’ on the road, following a sell-out run at Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Deborah Frances-White

Plymouth Pavilions – 25 May

Deborah Frances-White started The Guilty Feminist podcast in late 2015 and it’s grown to be a comedy phenomenon with over 50 million downloads. This special touring version of the show will include some special guests and big conversations – plus laughs, excitement and spectacle too.
