After a brilliant start to 2014, comedy at Glyndwr continues to set the bar high for the remainder of the year / start of next year.
Glyndwr University Events Whats On
Already this year some of the biggest names in comedy have performed at Glyndwr, with Russell Kane, David O’Doherty and Russell Howard all taking to the stage.
On May 4th Jon Richardson returns to the town with his first stand-up tour for a few years. Best known for his role on panel show ‘8 Out Of 10 Cats’, the comedian’s unique comedic approach is one that has won him a legion of loyal fans. Tickets for the show are £19.50.
In July John Bishop makes his debut appearance in the town with a ‘Work in Progress’ / warm up show before his UK arena tour this Autumn. Last week Wrexham.com reported on how tickets for the comedian sold out in half an hour. However if you were lucky enough to get tickets, let us know what the show is like!
Kicking off September is Tom Stade with his ‘Decisions, Decisions, Decisions’ tour. Best known for his appearances on ‘Live At The Apollo’, he has recently performed at the 02 Arena for Channel 4’s ‘Comedy Gala’. The comedian returns to the stage to ‘ponder timeless questions and reflect upon life’s choices and decisions’. Tickets are £16.00.
After two sell out shows last Autumn, Jimmy Carr will make his return to the William Aston Hall on September 26th. ‘Funny Business’ is the comedian’s new stand up tour, which will no doubt showcase a number of one liners and jokes that will make you cross the line. Tickets are £25.00 and already there are limited tickets left for the show. For those of you who haven’t seen the comedian before, or for those of you who want to relive his last performance, you can read our review here.
Having been due to perform in Wrexham earlier this year, Chris Ramsey will bring his ‘Most Dangerous Man on Saturday Morning Television’ tour to town on October 1st. The show was initially cancelled at the start of the year due to severe wind and rain hitting the town; however there are still a handful of tickets left if you fancy catching him second time round. Tickets are £16.50.
The second of October’s act sees Max Boyce make a return to the town. The Welsh comedian and singer brings his unique and ever popular humorous look on life to the stage. Having toured the world for the last 30 years, this comedian’s popularity remains as strong as ever. Max Boyce will be at the William Aston Hall on October 11th and tickets are £22.00.
On October 24th, Dave Gorman will be in town to ‘Get Straight To The Point* (*The Powerpoint). This new live show ‘promises more of his unique blend of stand-up comedy and visual story-telling’. While the prospect of having Powerpoint in a shows title seems a bit odd, we’re pretty intrigued by it! Tickets are £20.00 and are already selling out fast, so get yours while you can!
On November 1st Al Murray will also make his return to Wrexham. The ‘One Man, One Guvnor’ tour is a celebration of the comedian’s 20 years in the business. With a pint in hand and a glass of wine for the lady, no doubt the show will celebrate the ‘one man mission as the King Cnut of Common Sense’. Tickets for the show are £25.50. You can read our review of his most recent performance at the William Aston Hall here.
Already there is comedy planned for next year, Roy ‘Chubby’ Brown, who returns to Wrexham with returns with his meatiest show yet; ‘Who Ate All The Pies?’. The show is on January 16th and is listed as being as ‘politically incorrect as ever. Not for the easily offended, tickets for the comedian are £20.00.
