Andrew Lawrence, star of Live at The Apollo and Michael McIntyre’s Roadshow and UK comedy’s foremost contrarian, takes a break from all the controversy in his new show, Clean, on February 8. There'll be no politics, no religion, no smut, no swearing - just jokes and good clean fun.

Ahir Shah returns to the Spa Centre on February 9 with a new stand-up show about life and what comes after, death and what comes before, and Bohemian Rhapsody. Andrew Doyle will be bringing his new show Friendly Fire to the venue's studio on February 16; Andrew is one of the UK’s foremost political satirists with Friendly Fire being his seventh solo stand up show.

British Comedy Award nominee, Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee and Chortle Award winner Simon Munnery will bring his new tour The Wreath to Leamington on March 7. Simon is best known for his character creations Alan Parker: Urban Warrior, Buckethead and The League Against Tedium.

Hitting the circuit with some fast-paced, high octane stand-up, delivered with his usual inimitable style, multi award-winning comedian Matt Richardson will perform Slash on March 9. Matt is known to millions as the host of Virgin Radio's Drive-time show, The Xtra Factor, Just Tattoo of Us The Aftermath and Celebrity Haunted Hotel Live.
