Comedy  


Comedy Club

Various Venues | Saturday 2 March 2019 

Prepare to have your sides split and your ribs tickled - we’re spoilt for choice this weekend with so many brilliant comedy gigs to enjoy. The Last Minute Comedy Club, a brand-new monthly comedy night at New Art Exchange kicks off on Saturday. The highly acclaimed Adam Bloom, who you might recognise from his various appearances on TV stand-up and panel shows, heads up the bill, along with the instantly engaging Che Burnley and the straight-talking, sharp and observant Sean Percival. Elsewhere, Father Ted star Ardal O'Hanlon, best known for his endearing portrayal of the lovably slow-witted Father Dougal, and most recently as the star of BBC crime drama Death in Paradise, will be taking to the stage at Nottingham Lakeside Arts. Finally, for something a little different to the average stand-up show, head to the The Theatre Royal and Royal Concert Hall to see Dave Alnwick: Literally The Best Magician - a seriously funny show fusing misdirection, magic and impressive illusions with fast passed wit. 


Witches' Marks Tours at Creswell Crags 
 

Witch Marks at Creswell Crags

Creswell Crags | Tours run daily at 11am and 1pm | Tickets: Adult £9, Under 16 £6, Concessions £7.50   

 The ancient landscapes of Creswell Crags never cease to amaze. This limestone gorge honeycombed with caves is a pleasure to wander around, and has a wealth of history dating back 60 thousand years. Not only is it home to Britain’s only known Ice Age rock art, they recently discovered an astounding concentration of Witches’ Marks. These symbols of protection scrawled into the cave walls were thought to keep evil spirits coming from the underworld. Hundreds of these 'apotropaic marks' - from the Greek apotrepein, meaning ‘to turn away’ - can be seen on their brand-new cave tour. Believed to be from the 17th and 18th centuries, they are the largest known collection in the UK, perhaps the world!

Sometimes thoughtful and sometimes silly, but always punchy, Father Ted star Ardal O'Hanlon has tickled audiences all over the world. Lurking beneath his mild-mannered demeanour resides a sharp and probing (and fairly mild-mannered) comic brain. In his latest stand-up show the subject matter is life itself, and the default expression is one of utter disbelief.
