What's On At BHCIVIC

Date: Friday 05th April 2019
Time: 07:30pm09:30pm
Doors Open at 6.45pm

Join Vicky Michelle and the Hormonal Housewives as they blast their witty way through a catalogue of women’s bits: weight gain, weight loss, mood swings, moody teenagers, men, zumba, therapy, housework, homework, electrolysis, men, sex, working out, staying in, going out, bikini waxes, celebrity gossip, eating, not eating, chocolate, wine, more chocolate, social media, more wine, and all the other joys of being a 21st century woman! 
 
No subject is taboo for these girls and no thought is too private as the challenges of modern womanhood are sliced, diced and put to rights.  And that’s not all – audiences will be treated to some of the very best bits from the previous tour of this smash-hit show. 
 
A seriously funny evening – what these women can’t teach you about modern womanhood isn’t worth knowing… 

Tickets £24

**Suitable for ages 14+

Adam Rowe
Winner of the best joke at last year's Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Adam Rowe is widely regarded as one of the most exciting young comics to emerge in recent years, with his reputation growing from exciting newcomer to international headline act since his debut in 2010. Despite still being in his early twenties, Adam is already one of the most sought after acts & comperes in the country and is fast becoming a huge favourite at all of The UK’s biggest comedy clubs and festivals, as well as being asked to headline clubs as far afield as South Africa.

His natural, laid back persona combined with his brutally honest, opinionated stand-up and his phenomenal ad-libbing ability make each of his performances unique and gloriously unpredictable, but more importantly; always hilarious.

He’s had four sell out years at The Liverpool Comedy Festival (2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016), with his venue capacity almost doubling every year due his growing hometown fan base.

In 2017, Adam released his debut one-hour stand-up special “I Know What You’re Saying” on various formats including DVD, download & USB flashdrive. The special was recorded across two sold-out nights at Hot Water Comedy Club in Liverpool and was co-produced by Adam’s own company; Front Row Productions. He’ll also be taking his sophomore show ‘Unbearable’ to The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, before taking it on his debut nationwide UK tour

Adam regularly performs at The Comedy Store, Hot Water Comedy Club, The Glee Clubs, Komedia, The Stand, The Comedy Loft, Frog & Bucket, Top Secret Comedy Club, The Boat Show, Just The Tonic, Ten Feet Tall, Manfords & many independent comedy nights, comedy clubs, corporate & private events.

Funny Beeseness Present yet another superb night of comedy here at the Civic bringing the best names in comedy to your doorstep at a fantastic price.

Jonathan Pie is a well known and respected roving news reporter working for a well known and respected UK news broadcaster…but he has a problem. The problem is he has an opinion. And a boss called Tim. After just four episodes actor Tom Walker’s creation Jonathan Pie: Reporter went globally viral with to date over 30 million views of the now infamous clip where he “lost his shit” outside the houses of parliament. His infamous video after the US elections has now been seen in excess of 160 million times. He has performed around the world and has sold out prestigious venues such as the Hammersmith Apollo and the London Palladium.

The Raymond & Mr Timpkins Revue simply have to be seen to be believed! They are without a doubt the maddest, silliest, stupidest, cleverest, strangest and everything else-ist as well as the funniest double act of comedians on the circuit. They're a prop/music driven double act, professionally dancing about and holding up words and pictures since 2004.

For more than a decade Jo Enright has worked with many of the UK’s leading comedy writers and directors. Appearing alongside Peter Kay in Phoenix Nights, with Steve Coogan in I’m Alan Partridge and playing the female lead Sue, in Life’s Too Short, directed by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant. Jo has recently received rave reviews for the part of Angela in three series of ITV’s The Job Lot. Her comedy awards include the 2002 Chortle Award for ‘The Best Female Circuit Comic’ and the 2001 ‘Best Female on the Jongleurs Comedy Circuit’ award.

Hosting the night and holding things together will be our resident MC, Wayne Beese - described by Joe Lycett as "one of the sharpest comperes I have ever had the pleasure of working with!"
