XS Malarkey at the Store

01 Aug 2017 - 22 Aug 2017


XS Malarkey
We’re a not-for-profit comedy club, hosted every week by Toby Hadoke, and eagerly maintained by a group of minions who do his bidding on a regular basis. We’re a bunch of comedy geeks who have been running a weekly comedy night since 1997 just for the hell of it. We all have full-time jobs outside of the club, but we do XS Malarkey because we enjoy watching live comedy. You could say we’re a bit obsessed. All of Toby’s band of merry Malarkians were regular XS Malarkey audience members before becoming part of the furniture. Lee joined XS Malarkey in 2001, Ros and Mike in 2003, Jon in 2013, Corry joined in 2015 and Joe is our latest addition, joining us in 2016. Despite the low door price, we put on shows with professional comedians and rising stars of the comedy circuit, also giving newcomers a chance to practise their material in front of a supportive and quite frankly fantastic audience, many of whom are just as obsessed with comedy as we are. We feed our audience’s comedy obsession by running a membership scheme charging a ludicrously cheap £3 per ticket. We don’t do group discounts, because to be honest – we’re cheap enough already 🙂

"Overwhelming, Masterly, Brilliant!” Bremen Courier
"From Bowie to the Beach Boys” Stuttgart Daily News

Is it possible for anyone to create a show that brilliantly combines music from Mozart to Monty Python, Bach to the Beatles, Chick Corea to Rossini? The answer of course in the case of The Unique Komedy Ukulele Orchestra (TUKUO) is a resounding "YES!" Their motto is; "Musical borders belong to Yesterday". After a string of hugely successful European Tours, the musicians from TUKUO directed by Peter Moss will once more be combining their totally unique vocal harmony blend with their own brand of typically British humour, brilliantly daring and inventive arrangements and the unbelievable sound of their miniature instrument of choice, the famous and hugely underrated Ukulele that originated from Hawaii. The Ukulele's are back!

Justin Moorhouse

From Live at the Apollo, Phoenix Nights, The News Quiz (BBC Radio 4) and Fighting Talk (BBC 5 Live). A little slimmer but still as “belly laugh funny” (Manchester Evening News), everyone’s favourite northern charmer Justin Moorhouse is back on the road and better than ever. After touring last year’s show, of which The Guardian said “the amount of first-rate comic craft that goes into his deceptively simple routines is worthy of admiration” he’s had a think about people. And feelings. About people Justin knows, their feelings and how he feels about them. And they about him. It’ll be a (very) funny show. Promise.
