Gap Comedy are proud to present
ANDY PARSONS – “HEALING THE NATION”
WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 12th 2020.
Doors Open 7.15 pm
‘It was 24th June 2016 and I found myself contemplating a supermarket meal deal. I only wanted a sandwich and I only needed a sandwich but given that I could get a snack and a drink for only 5p more it seemed financially irresponsible not to. I had spent so long pondering the EU Referendum result from the day before that I was now in a massive rush. The lad on the till scanned the first two items no problem but the third item he couldn’t get to scan at all. I thought this is going to be a nightmare – there was a queue building up and he looked like he was going to call the supervisor. Then to his credit, he tried to scan it one more time, it wouldn’t scan – so he went ‘bip’ himself and chucked it through. And it was at that moment I thought “Oh we’ll be alright as a country we will”.
And we will be alright. Trust me. I’m not a politician.’
As seen on Mock the Week, Live at the Apollo, Q.I. etc. – and repeated on Dave.

SIMON EVANS: GENIUS
Thursday December 12th. Doors Open 7.15 pm
Ever since he was a small boy, all Simon Evans really wanted was to be recognised by the world as a man of genius. He has, until now, remained thwarted. The world seems increasingly indifferent to true genius of any kind, let alone Evans’.
Simon is one of the UK’s most respected and established comedians. He is a regular on TV and radio. His TV credits include appearances on BBC One’s Live at the Apollo, on Michael McIntyre’s Roadshow, plus Channel 4’s Stand Up for the Week.
Simon is a regular on BBC Radio 4’s The News Quiz, writes and hosts the news satire, The Way It Is, as well as Evans Goes to Market, delighting audiences with his witty and insightful take on the unpromising comic territory of economics‘
‘A masterclass in socio-political comedy…The Show is called Genius. It comes very close’ ***** (The Scotsman)
