Farnham Maltings is a key stop off for many of the UK’s top comedian’s having built its reputation through hosting a comedy club which offers a warm welcome to some of the industry’s stars of the future and a jam-packed Great Hall for some of the bigger names to test out their new material.

Our spring/summer season offers the same mix of top class entertainment from some of the best touring acts. Whether you like you’re comedy satirical or political, through the form of Rory Bremner and Andy Hamilton, or more absurd, silly and musical through George Egg: Anarchist Cook or Jonny & the Baptists, there is definitely something to get you laughing at the Maltings over the next few months.

Jonny & the Baptist: Eat the Poor – Fri 31 March, 8pm

A riotously funny musical epic about friendship, inequality and betrayal from the multi-award-nominated musical comedians. Setting out to explore the gap between rich and poor, Jonny & the Baptists’ lives turn upside down when Jonny betrays Paddy for financial gain. As Jonny enjoys the highlife with Andrew Lloyd Webber and Jerry Hall, Paddy falls into homelessness and despair.http://ichef.bbci.co.uk/images/ic/640x360/p01pw8lq.jpg

Andrew-Lawrence

Andrew Lawrence: The Hate Speech – Sat 22 April, 8pm

Double Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee, as seen on Live At The Apollo, and star of four series of his own show on BBC Radio 4.

The UK comedy scene’s most bigoted scumbag, back with an all new show full of morally repugnant, borderline criminal material in the very poorest taste. Not for the easily offended!

‘Superbly intelligent, highly articulate and deeply sour.’ The Spectator

Tez Ilyas: Made in Britain – Fri 19 May, 8pm

Nominated for Best Breakthrough act in the Chortle Comedy Awards 2017

In 2015, Tez Ilyas achieved phenomenal success with his debut stand up show TEZ Talks. Following huge success at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, a totally sold-out run at London’s Soho Theatre & being serialised for BBC Radio 4 (with a second series coming in 2017), Tez is now taking his follow-up show, the critically acclaimed, smash hit ‘Made in Britain’, on tour.

Marcel Lucont’s Whine List – Sat 27 May, 8pm

Winner: Chortle Award 2015
Winner: Best Comedy – Fringe World 2013

France’s finest flâneur brings a new interactive show to the baying masses. A kind of self-help group where everyone potentially leaves more depressed. Expect louche musings, deadpan wit and Gallic superiority.
