Five acts, hosted by a sketch show? Bristol’s most unusual comedy night returns, with over 40 sketches running threaded right through it! Biscuit Barrel are a quickfire sketch group, tackling our species’ ever-shrinking attention span with gut-busting skits at a neatly-trimmed length. Previous acclaimed productions have toured Edinburgh Fringe, Brighton Fringe and regional comedy festivals across the UK.

“Fast, slick and very funny” ★★★★★ – The Derek Awards
The night celebrates being a home for all flavours of comedy. Improv, stand-up, music, drag, character — it’s all welcome in the Comedy Tin! Grab a pint and your ugliest laugh, it’s time to roll out The Barrel…
