Comedy Cottage: June

Your award-winning local community comedy club

The last Comedy Cottage at the Harlequin Theatre before we break for the Summer and what a scorcher of a line-up we have for you!

This month’s show is in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support with your founder and Mc for the evening…

Sajeela Kershi

As seen on your telly & heard on your wireless.

“incidental digressions, sharpness of wit and ad libbing in her Joanna Lumley cut-glass vowels will be more than worth it”   The Stage

“The woman is a treasure, she’s like Claire Raynor scripted by Kenneth Williams”   The Spectator


Headlining for us is multi-award winning standup…

Dan Antopolski

Dan has performed across the UK and internationally, with appearances at Montreal, Melbourne and New York. His many TV, film and radio appearances include Paddington 2 and Good Omens (BBC) and he is known to younger viewers as the host of The Dare Devil (CBBC).

“Innovative, truth-seeking, weirdly magical stuff… he stands in a comedy spotlight all of his own. Thank heaven – with special thanks also to hell – for Dan Antopolski.”   The List

“The daftest, silliest and most uplifting show I’ve seen, a happy reminder of how the best comedy can leave you smiling for the rest of the evening.”   Observer

BBC New Comedy Award Winner / Perrier Best Newcomer Award Nominee / Perrier Award Nominee / Dave Funniest Joke Of The Fringe Award Winner / Honorary Life Member Of The University Of Dublin Law Society.

Nathan Ramsden-Lock 

Nathan Ramsden-Lock is a one man variety show with an offbeat mix of visual gags, puns, one liners and comical songs so catchy, you’ll still be singing them on the way home!

“His self-aware commitment to this offbeat style is amusing in its own way and creates a unique kind of energy in the room.”   West Sussex County Times

Matty Hutson

Musical Comedian

“Emotional but hilarious”   British Comedy Guide
