Loads of brilliant comedians are coming our way and tickets are now on sale for:
JEREMY HARDY (14th November) - Jeremy Hardy begins his 4th decade as a stand-up this year. That’s a more dramatic way of saying he started 31 years ago and, without a lottery win, probably has at least another 31 years to go. Last year, the tenth series of "Jeremy Hardy Speaks to the Nation" was broadcast on Radio 4. He is also well known for his appearances on The News Quiz and I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue. Indeed, Alan Bennett recently said he likes him “but he’s only on the radio”. However, Jeremy isn’t only on the radio. He is on the road all year round and has never stopped doing live shows since 1984. After briefly hibernating in the winter, he's back out on the road in 2015.
ED BYRNE - "Outside Looking In" - with 7th December show sold out (apart from a few single seats) - we are absolutely thrilled that Ed has included the Tivoli in the extended tour dates, with another chance to see this show on 15TH JANUARY!
JOSH WIDDICOMBE - (10th September) Josh Widdicombe, that guy from the TV comedy shows with the curly hair, is back on the road with a brand new tour, "What Do I Do Now....?"
BLOWERS & BAXTER "Rogues on the Road" Tour. (4th October). Fresh from touring Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia and even more far flung corners of the world, Blowers and Backers are back with Rogues on the Road - a brand new show crammed full of even more wonderful (and occasionally outrageous) reminiscences and anecdotes from two extensive careers spent broadcasting around the globe. Bastions of the beloved Test Match Special with over 80 years in the commentary box and touring the world with the programme between them, Henry and Peter have some tales to tell. And the fun, the games and outlandish characters, from Ian Fleming to Noel Coward, spread well beyond the confines of any cricket ground or studio. Between them they’ve seen plenty of shenanigans across the years and across the globe, so come ready to be shocked and entertained by good men behaving badly.
AL MURRAY - Saloon Show – Benefit for Camkids. (27th June) Following a sell-out show at Tivoli Theatre in October 2014, the nation’s favourite publican returns with The Pub Landlord’s Saloon – a special fundraiser for Camkids, the Cambodian Children’s Charity. Serving up a host of special guests - comedy, music and variety are all on tap in this headline show lead by the ringmaster of rabble rousing.

ROD WOODWARD (25th June) Rod Woodward - 'The Journey Starts Here' Tour. Award-winning Welsh comedian Rod Woodward who brought the house down at the 2014 Royal Variety Performance takes to the stage with his eagerly awaited debut tour.

Having supported Paddy McGuinness and Russell Brand on tour, he won the BBC 1 Wales Comedy Competition 'Funny Business'. "Comedian Rod Woodward broke protocol by being funny at the Royal Variety Show" - The Sun
JOHN COOPER CLARKE (23rd June) POET; MOVIE STAR; ROCK STAR; TV & RADIO PRESENTER; COMEDIAN; SOCIAL AND CULTURAL COMMENTATOR! Britain’s best loved and most important performance poet. John is as vital now as he was in the 70s; His biting, satirical, political and very funny verse, delivered in a unique rapid-fire performance style, resonated with the punk movement. JCC toured with all the seminal bands; The Sex Pistols, The Clash & Buzzcocks, and in the USA with Elvis Costello - he began to draw large crowds in his own right. Joy Division were proud to frequently support JCC and New Order later opened for him on their first Australian tour. The punk revival has seen a whole new generation clamouring over John’s work and saw his star rocket once again. Continuing to write new work from his Essex home, he has a plethora of new poems and monologues which he performs solo, alongside his best known works such as Beasley Street and Evidently Chickentown. His shows are always packed and his audience always leave ecstatic.
DAVE GORMAN "Gets Straight To The Point* (*The PowerPoint)" - (5th November) (Tour Extension Date) The wonderfully innovative comedy mind behind Modern Life Is Goodish (Dave TV), Are You Dave Gorman? and Googlewhack Adventure is back with a brand new live show that promises more of his unique blend of stand-up comedy and visual story-telling as Dave Gorman Gets Straight To The Point*... (*The PowerPoint). Yes. That's right. It's a PowerPoint presentation. We know what you're thinking. But don't worry. as this all-new show follows the phenomenal success of his critically-acclaimed UK Tour, Dave Gorman's Powerpoint Presentation, which included a sold-out 5-night run at London's Southbank Centre, we think you're in pretty safe (and funny) hands. You won't need to take notes and you almost certainly won't be tested on it later.
ED BYRNE (7th December- single seats only left) We are thrilled to welcome to the Tivoli, for the very first time - ED BYRNE with his latest comedy tour show "Outside, Looking In". Tickets still available for 16th January show!
JIM DAVIDSON (18th November) The people’s favourite and one of Britain’s greatest ever comedians, JIM DAVIDSON OBE telling it ‘like it is’. The antidote to this PC world we now live in. Don't worry, it will be outrageous and as truthful as ever! Suitable for ages 18+
JOE PASQUALE (29th August) - Yes, Joe’s back! This time he's leaner, meaner, he's a vacuum cleaner! Last year Joe and his twin brother Raynard opened a chip shop with the Dalai Lama in Skegness, called Batter Me, I'm Yours! But due to an accident with a pickled egg the Lama pulled out and opened a rival chip shop called the Dalai's Deep Sea Sausage, which resulted in a surf and turf war, it was savaloys at 40 paces.... If you want to know more come and see this show, it'll blow your mind, well at least your chips!

MILTON JONES (21st October) Yes him with the loud shirts and messed up hair from Mock the Week, Live at the Apollo, Michael McIntyre’s Roadshow and multiple series on Radio 4.
This new show is a side-splitting tale of a madcap journey as Milton follows in the footsteps of his great-uncle (who er… looks suspiciously like Milton). Unlike previous shows it’s a story, but there are still lots and lots of ridiculous gags as well as the trademark multi-coloured shirts and big hair. Expect playful props, silly sound effects and lashings of laughs.
Keep watching for new acts!!!
