An evening of fantastic comedy with multi-award winning comedian, presenter, actor, author and scriptwriter Russell Kane, and special guests Angela Barnes and Suzi Ruffell.

Russell is best known for the BBC Sounds podcast Evil Genius which has become a flagship show and was the best performing original podcast on the platform. Russell’s other podcast Boys Don’t Cry also features regularly on the iTunes top charts for listened-to podcasts and will return with a new series later this year. Recent TV appearances include The Apprentice You’re Fired, The One Show, Antiques Roadtrip, Stupid Man, Smart Phone and the host of three series of Live At The Electric. Other TV appearances include Live At The Apollo, Unzipped, Celebrity Juice and I’m A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here Now.

Winner of Best Show in 2010 at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards, Russell went on to make history as the first comedian to win both the Edinburgh Award and Melbourne Comedy Festival’s Barry Award in one year.

Angela Barnes delighted audiences at the Chichester Spiegeltent in 2019 with her solo show 'Rose-Tinted'. Winner of the 2011 BBC New Comedy Award, she and her witty worldview are featured on numerous radio and TV shows including BBC’s Mock The Week, Live At The Apollo and The News Quiz.

Please note: In a change to the line-up Suzi Ruffell will replace Robin Morgan as MC this evening. 

The working-class comedian of her generation, Suzi Ruffell has had five sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Festival, racking up critical acclaim. A regular on BBC Radio 4, she hosts Radio 2’s Explicable Me and her podcast series OUT with Suzi Ruffell, and co-hosts the hit podcast Like Minded Friends with Tom Allen.
