Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first Shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky in command of his last flight before retiring. But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The Shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalsky completely alone-tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness of space. The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth and any chance for rescue. As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left. But the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse of space.

Get ready for another blinding evening of comedy. The lovable Jeremy O’Donnell will be back of course to introduce three fantastic acts.

Headline act is Dave Fulton

Dave Fulton has a deceptively laid back stage manner that disguises a raw aggression. This is unmissable comedy from one of the most dynamic and innovative comedians on the comedy circuit. His mother would never have thought it possible from someone who holds a Masters in Music Composition.

You’ll have spotted Dave on Never Mind the Buzzcocks, Steve Coogan’s Saxondale, the BBC series The Stand-up Show, and 5′s The Comedy Store series where he took the roof off the prestigious club with his highly inventive perspective on life. He’s also presented a feature for Newsnight on American culture.

“Whoever it was who decided that Americans don’t have any sense of irony, they forgot to tell Dave Fulton”The Guide

Andrew Ryan

Irishman Andrew Ryan is one of the most exciting talents in recent years; in demand as an act and an MC at the biggest comedy clubs across the UK & Ireland.
Andrew’s quintessentially Irish storytelling abilities and cheeky, friendly demeanour make him a natural observational stand up. He performed his debut hour show ‘Ryanopoly’ at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2012, receiving rave reviews (‘Illuminating debu’ – The Metro). In 2014 he returned with his latest show ‘The Life of Ryan’ playing to packed out rooms (‘Going to be a huge star’ – Timeout). In 2015 he was at the Edinburgh Festival with his latest show ‘Perfectly Inadequate’. Selling out his run at the Festival and having to put on extra shows.‘Hard not to enjoy’ Daily Record. ‘An hour of hilarious comedy’ Edfestmag.

He has performed stand-up on BBC3’s Russell Howard’s Good News, Best of the Edinburgh Festival Live on BBC3, Live at The Comedy Store for Comedy Central, & Live for MIND on Comedy Central.

Andrew Bird

Andrew watched The Young Ones with his brothers when he was eight years old at two in the morning on Comic Relief. Because it was for charity he was allowed to stay up. He wanted to try and be funny in some way ever since. Then he saw Billy Connolly and Lee Evans and it all made sense. He moved to South London a while back and have been doing stand up ever since.

“Superb… the exciting rising star”Time Out
“A natural comedian”The Stage
“Effortlessly engaging and funny as hell”Rhod Gilbert
“Beautifully observed and insightful…not only an entertaining story but a very funny hour of fine stand-up”Chortle

“There’s an undercurrent of wisdom, hope and self-acceptance which delivers more soul than most shows you’ll see this year, but never undermines the comedy. Although his material is always funny and frequently hilarious, it’s his personal charm that makes this special.”Fest


This is going to be another fantastic show so tell everyone you know to get their tickets fast – you know we usually sell out fast!

The reputation of The Ant Hill Comedy Club is growing and so we are attracting better and better acts all the time.

Doors will open at 7.30pm and acts will start at about 8.15pm – trains allowing! Gives you time to get one of our now famous gourmet hot dogs and drinks in from the bar.


FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
There is a licenced bar so you need to be 18. If you are lucky enough to look younger you may be asked for ID’

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?
Parkside Hall is just a 5 minute walk from the centre of Ampthill but there is also lots of parking.

What can I bring into the event?
Your laughing gear and your best chums. All proceeds go the the charity that is Parkside Hall for ongoing repairs and to improve facilities. Therefore please do not bring your own drinks – it would be like steeling from children.

We will also be selling our famous Parkside Porker hot dogs so no need to bring food either.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?
Email Eileen our Bookings Officer and she will do her best to get your question answered – bookings@parksidehall.org.uk
