About the {{offerTypeLabel(offer)}}

Roll up, roll up giggling Wrigglers: it's time for your weekly fix of belly laughs.

Award-winning, opinionated Aussie comic Brendon Burns is definitely not afraid to speak his mind - what ever the subject. As close to rock 'n' roll as stand-up gets.

If we were to use one word to describe Burns’ career it’d be “interesting”. This is not your everyday comic. Older, wiser, calmer - Brendon’s energy is still enticing. His turn of phrase is coarse yet oddly eloquent, whilst remaining fully accessible and intensely loveable. Never pompous and ever self-deprecating, he just somehow seems to get away with murder, and his influence is ubiquitous throughout the stand-up world. 

Brendon's television career began alongside Sacha Baron Cohen & Ricky Gervais as a performer on The 11 O’Clock Show (Channel 4), but he is probably best known for his fearsome live solo shows, currently tallying at eighteen, with ten albums, and six live CDs to his name. He first appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe in 1996 and has returned every year since (bar 1999) and in 2007 won the unofficial Oscar of Stand up - the Edinburgh Fringe Festival Perrier Award for his show 'So I Suppose This Is Offensive Now'. He released his first semi-autobiographical novel 'Fear of Hat Loss in Las Vegas' in 2010.

“His peers are not other stand ups but more from the literary World. Burns is the William Burroughs and Charles Bukowski of stand up” – The Guardian

“The single most jaw-dropping, awkward, yet ultimately rewarding bit of stand up we have ever seen” Time Out, London

Brendon will be joined by the fantastic Maria Shehata, and Clint Edwards will be providing his usual comedic brilliance as compere. 

Doors are at 7:45pm, and the show starts at 8:45pm.
