ZAHRA BARRI: ZIG-AH-ZIG ZAHRA

FUTURE PERFECT PRESENTS ANGELOS + BARRY: NEW POWER GENERATION
8pm
Newhampton Arts Centre
Are you lost? Is your soul knackered? Are you disillusioned with the current state of things? If you answered yes to one of these then why not come along to see
Angelos and Barry in The New Power Generation? They will identify your weaknesses, expose them in front of everyone and then cure you 100% from whatever rubbish you might have. Like therapists and Gods rolled into one.

Stand-up
SUSAN MURRAY: ‘YA COR SAY THAT’

Willenhall’s only professional comic comes back to her roots with a bunch of jokes not heard anywhere else in the country knowing full well her Black Country comrades can take her particular brand of dark humour. Strap in cocka.

BEN BRIGGS
9pm-10pm
The Lych Gate Tavern
After sell-out shows at the Leicester Comedy Festival in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017, Ben Briggs brings an hour of confrontational and dark, but always very, very funny stand up comedy to Funny Things.
