Jesterlarf Comedy Club- November on Friday 3rd November in J2 from 7.45pm
Hal Cruttenden delivers his unique and original razor sharp gags and poignant observations cleverly misdirected by his unashamedly high camp middle-class, middle-age and a fair bit daft style which is the antidote to laddish swagger and sardonic cool.
Hal’s no stranger to TV and Radio having appeared on Live at the Apollo three times plus Have I Got News For You and the John Bishop Show alongside his own Radio 4 sitcom “Hal”
“An absolute joy to watch” The Scotsman
Having won numerous new act awards some years ago Mark Simmons has gone on to establish himself as a top class comedian – he’s toured with both Seann Walsh and Rob Beckett and starred alongside Seann Walsh in the BBC documentary “One For The Road”. If you like Tim Vine, you’ll like Mark Simmons, who shares the same love of a tight, silly puns and one-liners with a show packed full of lines you’ll want to quote later.
Hailing from ‘The Rebel County’ (That’s Cork for anyone outside Ireland), Chris Kent is a truly gifted storyteller with hilarious tales and a charming and surreal style, Chris has a new perspective on life.

Schon Dale-Jones: What’s the story? (workshop) on Wednesday 8th November in J3 from 6.30pm to 9.30pm
The world is full of stories. There are stories everywhere, all around us, all the time. This workshop helps to discover and explore the stories you might want to tell and how you could tell them. It works through a mixture of improvisation and writing, with the writer as performer and the performer as writer. It puts ‘story’ at the centre of the theatre-making process. You can come with ideas or no idea.
Shôn has been making theatre for over twenty years, working as a writer, performer and director. He has won several awards including two Fringe Firsts, a Total Theatre Award and a BBC Audio Drama Award. He has made work with the Royal Court, Barbican, National Theatre Wales and the BBC. His work is both funny and touching, seamlessly mixing fantasy and reality, weaving the personal with the political. Tickets for the workshop are £20 / £15 for Troop members. Suitable for adults age 18 years +.
Hackney Colliery Band on Saturday 4th November in J2 (standing) from 8pm
Featuring trumpets, trombones, saxes, sousaphone and marching percussion, the band are totally acoustic and yet able to blow the roof off any room.Formed in 2008 out of a desire to play music that appealed to the feet as much as to the ears, the Hackney Colliery Band is east London’s unique take on the brass band.
Hackney Colliery Band’s members have hugely diverse musical backgrounds, ranging from work with cutting edge jazz groups to the Royal Opera House, and from Jarvis Cocker to major international orchestras. This breadth of musical talent is clearly on display in their eclectic repertoire. Mining nuggets of funk, hip-hop and high-octane rock from the musical coalface and throwing in a few chunks of Balkan brass, electronica and contemporary jazz for good measure, the Hackney Colliery Band’s setlist is as diverse as the London borough that gave them their name.
Add the fact that the band stays true to its roots by bringing the tradition of mobile marching bands firmly into the 21st Century and you know that every gig’s sure to be unique. Whether playing to a global audience of hundreds of millions at the Closing Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics or to a few hundred in a club,though, you can be certain of one thing: this is high-energy, good-time music that’ll make you want move your feet. Tickets are £17.00. Doors & Bar open 7pm. Set 1 (45 mins) Interval (20mins) Set 2 (45 Mins). Under 14s must be accompanied by an adult.
