Comedy Cottage

Your fave local award winning Comedy Cottage is back with another season of great line-ups. Always a smorgasbord of diverse acts in style. Something in the mix to suit everyone. International & TV names alongside newer acts.

Headlining for our first show back

CAREY MARX

Comedian Carey Marx is the writer and star of BBC Radio 4’s Intensive Carey, twice winner of Best International Show at the New Zealand Comedy Festival, and Leicester Comedy Festival Best Show nominee.

His wilful disregard for the controversial and delicate is tempered beautifully by his ability to find joy in the most unexpected places. This hilarious mix of edgy topics and playful gagsmithery can be seen at all the top clubs across the country with Marx regularly playing Jongleurs, Komedia and The Comedy Store and annually compering the largest festivals.

"Great comedy from a comedy master." The Scotsman ★★★★

“It’s a real joy to see a comic at his gleeful best.” Edinburgh Evening News ★★★★★

“A darkly comic Quentin Tarantino. [Carey Marx] guarantees a solid cascade of laughs.” Chortle ★★★★
