Bring your colleagues and bring your friends for a shed load of laughs!
This relaxed cabaret-style comedy club on the last Friday of the month offers you the chance to enjoy a drink and sit back and relax, with three professional comedians ready to entertain you. Previous acts have included Alan Carr, Michael McIntyre, Lucy Porter, Nick Helm, Russell Kane and many more.
The below comedians are booked to appear in March. The comedians that appear in Comedy Shed are provided by Off the Kerb and are sometimes replaced at the last minute without any notification. They are, however, all professional comedians on the stand-up circuit.
Canadian comic John Hastings has been performing stand-up since 2006 and has performed annually at the Edinburgh Fringe since 2012. With anecdotes brimming with energy and emphasis, his observational comedy is second to none.
Sharp, smart, and brilliantly astute, British-Kurdish performer Kae Kurd is passionate about making politics accessible to young people, through the medium of his slick, confident stand-up routines.
Forever full of frenetic energy and with a keen eye for the absurd, Phil Nichol is boundless in his ability to entertain and bring the laughs.

Katy Brand’s hit Edinburgh Festival show I Was a Teenage Christian is an honest, fascinating and funny exploration of her self-imposed conversion and total immersion in evangelical Christianity.
One Sunday, aged 13, Katy went to a local church service and became a fundamentalist Christian. From then on she attended church four times a week. For seven years she put the 'fun' into fundamentalism…and the 'mental'. She was an obnoxious, self-important dick, but at least she knew she was going to heaven. Now she's not so sure. Katy will relive her glory days of certainty and judgement (and unrequited love…) whilst trying to figure out what the hell was going on in her own head.
Katy Brand performed her first professional comedy gig in a London pub in 2004, before joining acclaimed sketch comedy troupe Ealing Live!, and touring around the country with her own show. She won a British Comedy award for her TV sketch series Katy Brand’s Big Ass Show in 2008 and has since written for and appeared in numerous films, TV programmes and radio shows. Her first novel, Brenda Monk is Funny, was published in 2014. She has worked as a journalist, screen writer, actor, comedian and director. She really wanted to be an astronaut but didn’t have the maths. She also once dressed up as Beyonce on national television and very nearly got away with it…

In a dystopian future a city lays ruin as a half-chicken-half-man clucks, struts and clambers over piles of smoldering debris, as his gas masked companion sifts, shifts and lifts large chunks of rubble in search of lost relics, packets of m&m’s, and rare objetd’art.
Together this twisted pair run Apocalypso; the last bar on earth. Here the whiskey tastes like petrol, the toilet bowls give birth, and the party must never end. The bar is stocked, theend is nigh, and soon they’ll meet the man who caused it all. Tin Shed Theatre Co. invite you to join them at the end of the world for an evening of post-apocalyptic mayhem that is part theatre performance, part gig, part free-bar.
Blending cult-iconography, the spews of their imagination and pickings from modern politics, Tin Shed create their own bleak vision of the future, in an attempt to question the decisions of the today. Utilising their usual assertion of macabre humour they present something reminiscent of Mad Max surgically spliced with Waiting For Godot.
An immersive horror-comedy experience like no other.

Fringe First award winner Katie Bonna is giving a TED talk on the science of lying. Well, that’s not quite true. TED haven’t actually asked her to give a talk - yet.

Sofie Hagen is unquestionably one of the most talked-about comics of the moment. A modern legend in her native Denmark, she burst onto the British scene by winning Best Newcomer at Edinburgh Festival 2015; her 2016 follow-up, ‘Shimmer Shatter’, wasa second total sell-out. She’s spoken to millions as former host of ‘Guilty Feminist’ and current host of ‘Made of Human’ podcasts, and appeared on ‘The One Show’, ‘The Now Show’ and ‘Live From The BBC’. This, her biggest national tour to date, is a brand new show packed with brilliant, off beat observation, passionate argument, and jokes. Also: one parable.
