Siobhan Phillips recently wowed audiences as the only female finalist in Britain's Got Talent 2019.
Described as "the love child of Peter Kay and Victoria Wood", her hilarious self-penned songs really struck a chord with the nation, who could totally relate to a selection of her observational daft ditties.
Covering subjects from becoming a first-time Mum at 40, tantrum-throwing toddlers and the frustrations of mother-daughter relationships, you'll be treated to an insight to her life presented with exceptional candour and warmth.
This brand new show has variety at its core and features the smash hit songs performed on Britain's Got Talent, along with more daft ditties, comedy and the chance to experience Siobhan's breathtaking vocals in an evening guaranteed to be Live and Unhinged.
As seen and heard on Britain's Got Talent 2019, Operatunity, The Frank Skinner Show, Lorraine, Loose Women, This Morning, Good Morning Britain, BBC Radio, Heart FM and Talk Radio.

Get ready to dive into a rabbit hole of the best jokes in the world - star of Live at the Apollo and sell-out sensation Gary Delaney is back! One of the most sought after joke writers in the country and longstanding Mock the Week special guest, Gary has been through the laughing glass and he's ready to bring you a brand new show with hit after hit of the kind of one-liners only a master could craft. If you're hunting for snark, Gary's got it covered!

We've all had some pondering to do about the fragility of life recently, but don't worry, skinny national treasure Mark Watson has it covered. At 41, he's halfway through his days on earth, according to the life expectancy calculator app he paid £1.49 for. That life is in the best shape in living memory... but one problem remains, and it really is a huge one.
Spiritual enquiry meets high-octane observational comedy as the 'Taskmaster' survivor, multi-award-winner and "No More Jockeys" cult leader attempts to cram a couple of years of pathological overthinking into an evening of stand-up. Maybe we'll even solve the huge problem. Doubt it, though.

‘I Blame the Parents' is the fourth national tour for Geoff Norcott, following on the back of ‘Conswervative', ‘Traditionalism' and ‘Taking Liberties'.
This time Geoff talks less politics (alright, there will probably be a bit), but this brand-new show will mostly explore personal responsibility, parenting and who should take the blame when things go wrong.
'Sets himself apart from the liberal commentariat with a sharp self-knowing wit ****' Dominic Maxwell, The Times
Whatever happened to the idea of personal responsibility? In the age of victimhood, it seems like whatever's wrong with your life it can be blamed on someone else. Governments, employers... some bigot from four hundred years ago.
Where did it go wrong? It has to be the parents. Every generation there's an opportunity for a new set of mums and dads to set their kids straight and make a stand against whatever trendy nonsense is currently doing the rounds. But do we? Or is it easier to give into fear and the pursuit of a quiet life?
Geoff has realised he's also a bag of contradictions. Raised on a south London council estate by two maverick parents, there's plenty he has to sift through. His Dad was a trade union man who obsessed over stocks and shares. His mum was a closet chauvinist and far too frank on the subject of sex.
With a child of his own, Geoff spies a one-off chance for his family to finally get it right and produce a balanced human being, but can he filter out his own bollocks before it gets to his son?
Iain Stirling (Love Island, Buffering and Taskmaster) is taking his ‘extremely funny' (Daily Telegraph) comedy back on the road for his biggest ever nationwide tour.

Do you ever wonder how people manage to be normal? Iain does. So much so he's written a brand new stand-up show about it. Join the ‘star of comedy' (The i) as he explores his inability to function in the most basic of public settings, social media's constant pressure to "live your best life" and that one time a man stole his shoes.

He's also the host of hit comedy gameshow Iain Stirling's CelebAbility (ITV2), starred in his own Comedy Central Live special and has been seen on The Russell Howard Hour (Sky One) The Comedy Bus, Drunk History and Russell Howard's Stand Up Central (all Comedy Central), Virtually Famous (E4), Russell Howard's Good News and Sweat the Small Stuff (both BBC Three) and Fake Reaction and Safe Word (both ITV2).

Mr P has been a primary school teacher for over 12 years. He still works part-time in school and leads training in schools all over the UK and beyond. From sharing ideas and funny insights into life in the classroom he has now become the most followed teacher on social media in the UK.
A year ago, alongside his younger brother (who also works in school) he started a podcast - Two Mr Ps in a Podcast. In a year, it has been the number one education podcast and amassed over 350,000 listeners.
Sharing funny stories from the front line of teaching, this live show will see the Two Mr Ps reminiscing on their own school days and looking at the wonderful and hilarious world of education. Anyone who went to school will enjoy and relate to this brilliant new show.
Featuring his signature blend of philosophical inquiry, personal examination, and sweet gags, Double Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee Ahir Shah returns to stand-up with a new show about significance, insignificance, and scurvy.
Ahir's last show, Dots, was recorded as a special for HBO Max (albeit after a 14 month delay brought about by events you may recall). That show was about uncertainty. Ideally, this tour will end in a way that is less on the nose.
As seen on Mock The Week, Live At the Apollo, Have I Got News For You, and The Mash Report.
