Paul Tonkinson - Unzips The Bag
A show about being on the road. Stand-up Paul Tonkinson, a 38 year old married man with three children, two dogs and two cats tells it like he thinks it is.
In Unzips the Bag, he celebrates the work and family ethic of gangster-rapper Snoop Dogg, muses on the necessity of surrender and shares the futile horror of being heckled on the radio.
Feel the energy. Witness the cheek of it. But why unzip? And what's in the bag?

Markus Birdman - "Son of a Preacher Man"
God sacrificed his own son, but a child is for life, not just for Christmas!
This show is about Markus' relationship with his father, who’s a vicar. It’s about his relationship with his daughter, who’s two. It’s about his relationship with God, who’s never there. It’s about an hour.
“Birdman is the all-round package; witty, controversial, hip, topical and silly. A master of timing and physical comedy, he made me laugh so hard it hurt.” BBC
"Wonderful, extremely versatile." - The Scotsman
"The crowd fell for his dry wit in a big way" - The Observer
"Uniquely talented" - The Evening Standard
