Comedy at the Guild: November


Line-up announced!
Doors open at 7pm.

Our monthly comedy nights are now established as a great way to see the hottest new stars without paying the big price tags! Featuring three different comedians and an MC each month, you’re in for plenty of laughs and a great night out!

MC: Toby Haydoke
With a stand-up career that spans over 15 years, Toby is one of the most respected MC’s and headline acts on the UK circuit. His quick wit and charming audience banter make him a disarming compere who can liven up a lacklustre crowd or tame a feisty one, without him ever losing his unique comedy styling as a self-deprecatory and amusingly vexed curmudgeon it’s impossible to dislike. Quick witted and a verbal craftsman, he’s also politically informed and a great improviser. He took his debut one-man show, Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2006 to the delights of audiences and critics alike. Following a successful Edinburgh trip, the show enjoyed a West End stint and continues to tour internationally.
