The Antics Joke Show

Saturday 25th May 8pm - 10pm

This event is now over. Check the What's On for upcoming events!

The Antics Joke Show is a monthly mash-up of comedy genres. Featuring the best names in Improv, Sketch and Stand-up from across Bristol and further afield, this night has been featured by Bristol 24/7, The Bristol Magazine and Wriggle Bristol as one of the best comedy shows around.


Having freshly graduated from their tenancy as the Parents Basement House Team, Waiting for Becky are leading purveyors in American Longform style giggles. Monoscenes! Armandos! Waiting for Becky will consistently provide at least one of those. But which? They decide.

Sketches from … UP THE ANTICS

Up The Antics met 8 years ago and haven't looked back since. Four Edinburgh fringe shows, consistent sell-out shows in their home town of Bristol and touring the country performing at festivals and headlining comedy nights, The Antics' fast-paced and hilarious sketches aren't something to miss out on!

*Stand-up from … RICHARD JAMES*

Richard James is about to head off on a comedy walking tour of the South Coast to raise money for the RNLI, walking approximately 620 miles from Minehead to Bournemouth performing comedy along the way. He's preparing with a set at our show tonight!

*Stand-up from … ROSA HANDSCOMB*

Having played the saxophone since she was 8 years old, Rosa decided she might as well use it in stand-up to give her something else to talk about besides being aggressively northern. As a finalist at the Chortle Student Comedy Awards this year, it seems that the people's suspicion of jazz hasn't quite affected their intensely passionate love of musical comedy just yet.
