Upstairs Comedy and Dan Nicholas Present...

Jestin’ At The Western (September)

Finished run

AGES: 14+
TICKETS: £6, £8, £10

A brand new monthly comedy night comes to Upstairs At The Western. Featuring a selection of the finest acts around, from brand newcomers testing their comedic skills (some for the first time), too more established acts trying their hand at some new jokes. Always featuring professional acts and a superb headliner.

Hosted by the enigmatic Daniel Nicholas, our headliners this month are:-

George Rigden – Is already one of the most exciting, hotly-tipped and sought after new acts on the UK comedy circuit and frequently gigs up and down the country for the countries leading clubs and promoters. Having excelled in a host of new act competitions in his first year, George made his Edinburgh debut in 2015 when he performed as part of the prestigious AAA Stand Up Late showcase at the Pleasance Courtyard for a full sell-out run.

Lucy Thompson – Started her journey into the world of comedy back in February 2014. Although still a relatively new face on the circuit Lucy has already won the Midlands Comedy Breakthrough Act award in 2016.

Rigden is the result of a genetic mash-up between Mitch Benn and Tim Key, perhaps with a few strands of Ricky Gervais’s DNA thrown in…Very Funny Stuff.
