There is a comedy show for all styles this summer at the William Aston Hall.

Comedy Club heads over to William Aston Hall this November (26 Nov)! A night of stellar stand up with a ridiculously good line-up that always features the best on the circuit. Acts include: Nick Helm (Uncle, 8 Out Of 10 Cats, Live At The Apollo), Amy Gledhill (Stand Up Sketch Show, Emily Atack Show), Josh Pugh (Mock the Week, Hypothetical), Brennan Reece (Live At The Apollo), Seeta Wrightson. Line up subject to change.

Theatr Clwyd’s Comedy Club (22 May & 7 Jun) is also a staple in the calendar. Taking place monthly, for just £10 audiences will enjoy some of the best comedians on the circuit. The summer events will include performances from Rob Rouse, Nina Gilligan, Simon Lomas, Dan Tiernan, Dana Alexander, Cerys Nelmes, Sully O’Sullivan and Jenny Hart.

This season Theatr Clwyd launch Clwb Comedi Cymraeg (26 Jun & 7 Sep). Featuring the most talented Welsh language comedians for a night of stellar stand up! These evenings will include the likes of Dan Thomas (Gala Comedi, S4C), Beth Jones (Gala Comedi, S4C) Steffan Alun, Josh Pennar, Eleri Morgan (Tourist Trap, BBC), Al Parr, Steffan Evans and Dan Thomas (Gala Comedi, S4C).

The Edinburgh Fringe Festival is a huge home for comedy, but if you’re not able to go this year fear not! Theatr Clwyd bring some incredible fringe previews. For one night only Brennan Reece and Harry Stachini perform on 17 July and Ignacio Lopez and Louise Young on 23 July.

After 21 years and 224 days Hal Cruttenden is back being single. But it’s all going to be fine. Instead of getting the therapy he clearly needs, he’s made a cracking show about it. For one night only Hal will come to Theatr Mix on 1 July.

The fun continues over at William Aston Hall this Summer / Autumn season Frankie Boyle (28 & 29 June) and Sarah Millican (6 Oct) having already sold out.

Following on from his sell-out show Jason Byrne returns with his new show The Ironic Bionic Man (1 Oct). Jason is officially Bionic, “ironically” of course, as Jason, the accident-prone, general unfortunate gobsh*te (to no want of his own) is now half man, half machine.

Born with a cock eye (then straightened), his lung collapsed (it was blown back up and sealed with metal pins), appendix removed, cartilage replaced in his knee from a poo-on-the-loo accident, arm dislocated by a wave, heart now functioning on six stents.

Star of Live at the Apollo and sell out sensation Gary Delaney is back with his show Gary Delaney Gary In Punderland (14 Nov). Get ready to dive into a rabbit hole of the best jokes in the world!

One of the most sought-after joke writers in the country and longstanding Mock the Week special guest, Gary has been through the laughing glass and he’s ready to bring you a brand-new show with hit after hit of the kind of one-liners only a master could craft. If you’re hunting for snark, Gary’s got it covered!

Ed Byrne brings his show Tragedy Plus Time (17 Nov). Attributed to Mark Twain, humour is defined as Tragedy Plus Time. Come and join Ed as he tests that formula by mining the most tragic event in his life for laughs.
