Stand Up in The Basement - Southampton Comedy on Tuesday 15th January 2019
STAND UP IN THE BASEMENT
Great fun original comedy evening with award winning comedians and familiar faces from TV; set in the perfect environment for comedy: small, cosy and underground!
ANNOUNCEMENT - LINE UP CHANGE
Andrew Bird had a TV offer which he couldn’t turn down so the brilliant LLoyd Griffith will be joining Josh Pugh on the Basement stage...
LLOYD GRIFFITH (Soccer AM, FIFA: Quest for the Best, Bounty Hunters, Comedy Central Live at the Comedy Store, Drunk History, on tour with Jack Whitehall and Rob Beckett)
'Disarmingly good' DOMINIC MAXWELL THE TIMES
'There’s no doubt about it; Lloyd Griffith is the king of the unexpected. His sense of fun is infectious, his singing voice faultless and his anecdotes are told with boundless confidence. Griffith has clearly established his own style of comedy' ★★★★★ THREEWEEKS
'Griffith in particular was absolutely outstanding' ★★★★★ BROADWAY BABY

He’s one of only seven comedians to perform for Banksy at Dismal Land. He’s written on TV shows; Jon Richardson’s Ultimate Worrier, 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown and Lee Mack’s Duck Quacks Don’t Echo and is a regular guest on BBC Radio’s The Rhod Gilbert Show.

★ JOSH PUGH
Hot off winning the Midland New Act of the Year in 2014 and 2015, Josh Pugh rapidly shot to the upper echelons of UK stand-up, winning English Comedian of the Year 2016, only two years after playing his first gig. He also won the Funhouse Gong Show as well as the Best New Act prizes at both the 2015 Birmingham and Nottingham Comedy Festivals. Josh’s clever, original, and (most importantly) very funny writing and performing continues to bring in plaudits, from Chortle to the Londonist to the London Evening Standard. Catch him before he’s huge.
