October 1st

Well. September was a smasher and October is gonna be another belter..

We're kicking off Birmingham Comedy Festival in style with a legend of the circuit headlining


There's not much we can say about Roger that hasn't already, he's badass..

"his laconic delivery shields an engaging persona and an enquiring mind" - The Guardian

Roger Monkhouse is one of the most original and distinctive acts on the comedy scene. A consummate stand-up who employs a deadly combination of charm and menace to exert a masterful control over any audience. A highly original and quirky performer, Roger's trademark stage-prowling style and curious, inimitable manner have established him as one of the hottest names on the comedy circuit.
Distinguished as a comic by his eloquence and keen eye for a fine phrase, Roger's easy observational style is spiked by the signal flares of an accomplished gag writer. As one of the most sought after acts on the comedy circuit, Roger headlines at all the major comedy venues and has performed extensively throughout the United Kingdom and Internationally, most recently performing in Belgium, The Netherlands, South Africa, China, Singapore, Tokyo and the Middle East. 

"unfailingly entertaining and skilfully able to pull punchlines, seemingly, out of thin air" -

"packs in more observations on the human condition in a twenty minute set than a whole lecture on Jean-Paul Sartre" - Venue Magazine

 "an enthusiasm akin to that of an excitable professor who's just found the gene that would enable a python to grow a beard" - Manchester Evening News

 "Witnessing a Roger (no relation to the late, great but distinctly orange Bob) Monkhouse gig is a little like watching a dotty old university professor at work. Although much funnier, of course" - Manchester Evening News

"Highly regarded by his peers on the circuit - he's shaven-headed, topical, good, and nothing to do with Bob" - Evening Standard

“Some of the material’s saucy – and uncompromisingly so – other parts are passionate and polemic. He’s sometimes topical, sometimes punny. Sometimes clever, sometimes daft. There is, in short, something in this varied comedy menu for every taste…a gifted natural… one of the consummate professionals of the stand-up circuit” - Chortle

Of course, entry is FREE and there'll be support from 4 top emerging acts.. 
Doors open 8pm, its recommended to get there early to guarantee a seat..
