Alan Francis first came to the notice of comedy audiences when he won Channel 4′s “So You Think You’re Funny” Award in 1991. Since then his reputation has grown as a writer, comedian and actor. A master of acutely observed character monologues, combining the sinister and surreal with brilliant wit, Francis is a master of intelligent comedy. He combines his skills in using different voices, accents and impressions to great effect and his own mild Edinburgh accent makes him an ideal and easy to understand performer for international audiences.

Alan Francis is one of the most successful performers and writers in British comedy currently. He wrote and co-starred in four series of Alistair McGowan’s Big impression for the BBC, winning the award as Best Entertainment show at the British Comedy Awards. He has also appeared on the Alan Partridge show, the Alexie Sayle show and many more of the top comedy shows on British television. On radio too, he has starred in many of the most popular shows including the Alan Davies show, The Treatment and The Buzz and received a Sony Award nomination for writing and starring in BBC Radio 5′s “Colin”.

What the critics say about Alan Francis:

“Sardonic wit at its best. Go See!” – The List

“A delightful hour, excellently executed” – Evening Standard

“Beautifully observed performances” – The Times

Lucky for the Pope that Vince Fluke discovered comedy and decided not to join the Swiss Guard like his Swiss parents wanted. Raised in the wild western Canadian Rockies, Fluke is a recent comedy import to Europe. Possessing a sardonic wit and a knack for finding the lighter side of dark matter, Vince has been a hit at comedy clubs and festivals across North America since he was fresh out of secondary school. In 1992, he won the award as funniest new comic in Canada and numerous other awards and accolades followed.

In 2006, he ventured over to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and was such a hit that he decided to stay in the UK, where he has continued to live and perform with great success on the British comedy circuit.

We expect this show to be extremely popular, so we strongly recommend making reservations early to avoid disappointment. Tickets are just €9 per person in advance or €10 on the door. Tickets can be purchased online in advance via Those who prefer to pay in cash at the door can still reserve seats by simply emailing: to let us know how many tickets you need.
