Saturday 21 March
King's Theatre


Don't miss your last chance to see this phenomenal show from 'comedy farmer' Jim Smith!

It's 'Countryfile' meets 'The Only Way Is Essex' as Jim hits the stage using characters, regional accents and impressions to help explain to city slickers what the outside world looks like through the eyes of those that 'bide up the glen'.

Hot topics will include internet dating for farmers, village nightlife and how to pimp your Land Rover.

Suitable for both country bumpkins and dead trendy city folk.


Jerry Sadowitz
Friday 20 March
King's Theatre


Jerry Sadowitz returns with his whacky impressions of Greta Thunberg, Frankie Boyle and deep vein thrombosis. He also promises to do less hate fuelled swearing and focus more on faux liberal pish in order to appeal to the middle class and their disposable income and personalities.

Patrons may wish to drink alcohol pre-show to avoid boredom, embarrassment and guilt.
