Live comedy returns to Nantwich Civic Hall on Friday, 6th September with a top line up of acts to kick off a brand new season of The Very Best In Stand Up.


Set to bring a ray of sunshine to proceedings, we welcome back Barbara Nice to oversee the evening. Barbara is the alter-ego of stockport comedian Janice Connolly who was discovered by Peter Kay and subsequently cast as Holy Mary in the iconic ‘Phoenix Nights’ show. She also made the semi-finals of Britain’s Got Talent with her charming, likeable and downright hilarious comedy creation and we’re delighted that she’ll be kicking off our new season.


She will be introducing Tom Wrigglesworth to stage for the first set of the evening. Tom’s been a stalwart of the UK comedy scene for over 20 years now, after breaking onto the scene by winning the Channel 4 New Comedy competition. He then went on to create Tom Wrigglesworth’s Hang Ups for Radio 4 and also co-presented on both Rhod Gilbert and Richard Bacon’s radio shows. Onstage, Tom’s engaging and anecdotal storytelling has continued to keep him in high demand at the UK’s biggest clubs.


Making his debut with us in the middle section , we have Connor Burns. Connor has been steamrolling his way through the comedy circuit hierarchy since stepping on to the stage in 2017. By the time the show rolls round, Connor will have just finished the Edinburgh Fringe with his brand new show ‘1994’ and will be preparing a tour of the show later in the year. His approach to comedy is a fearless one and with over 5 million views for his material online, Connor can certainly by described by the words ‘one to watch’ as he continues to carve a name for himself.


Closing the show is a welcome return for a man who is also no stranger to online popularity - Josh Pugh. Josh hails from the Midlands and has just completed his sell out UK tour for his show ‘Existing’ La Vida Loca’ and has made recent appearances on Live at the Apollo and QI. Topical fact too - Josh plays for the England Partially-sighted national team and has over 50 England caps! We can’t wait to have Josh close the first show of a brand new season of The Very Best In Stand Up and tickets for the show on sale now.
