Sunil Patel, with Richard Todd and Stu Goldsmith
Thursday, 29 March @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Sunil Patel is coming back to headline the Lazy Dog, and he’s bringing heat. The last time he was here, we all secretly wanted more, even though we’d just finished begging him to stop so we could catch our breath.
‘A clearly gifted comedian with a comfy and approachable style, he is as self-aware and structurally subversive as any of the Fringe’s great alternative comedians’ (EdFestMag.com). ‘He oozes funny like a jammy doughnut running down a diner’s chin’ (BroadwayBaby.com). ‘A psychopath’ (Scotsman).
Joining Sunil is Richard Todd, who’s returning to try some new bits after just plain levelling the place the last time he was out. Like a piece of forgotten sellotape stuck on a wall, neurotic ditherer Richard Todd clings to nothing but his place on the earth; may his grip hold for an hour of art therapy, inner demons and salad.
‘A smart surrealist’ (Independent). ‘A brilliant observational comic as well as an engaging story teller and marries the two into something wonderfully funny’ (Scotsman). ‘A talent entirely of his own’ **** (Fest). ‘Flashes of brilliance with complex, imaginative surrealism and an endearingly chaotic style’ (Skinny). ‘An inventive comic thinker’ (Chortle.co.uk).
And wrapping the whole show in a tidy little bow is Bristol’s favourite comedy son (even though he’s still noshing on the fruit from his welcome basket), the impeccable (go ahead and try to peck this man!) Stu Goldsmith. Stu is still touring his incredible belter of a show from this year, Like I Mean It. But of course, the mill needs grist, and grist means hard graft, and graft means some stage time in front of lovely little guinea pigs such as yourselves. So some new stuff, and maybe, just maybe, a joke about the perils and pitfalls of keeping bees commercially.
Come see how ‘a master of the form’ (Independent) ‘makes it look easy’ (Chortle.co.uk). Via As Yet Untitled and Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central.

That, my friends, is what it looks like when you book too many acclaimed performers onto one bill. A giant mess of press clips and accolades. But the kicker is all of this comedy is on a weeknight, at your local for a fiver. Five, lousy pounds, on the door, at the bar or online.
Followed by a free, cheeky open mic.
Lineup subject to change without notice, apology or refund. But we do promise we will put on a great show, no matter what comes.
