Comedy at the Gate

Ashton Gate Stadium is delighted to announce the return of ‘Comedy at the Gate’

Taking place on Saturday 29th May at 8.30pm, join the hilarious Seann Walsh and friends for a night full of laughter and fun!

Winning several awards early in his career, including Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2006, Seann certainly knows how to work a room. His stand-up style has been described as ‘impressively universal, gag-heavy and observational’, making him a brilliant choice for one of Ashton Gate’s first events back.

TV credits include Virtually Famous (Channel 4), Play To The Whistle (ITV), One For The Road (BBC 3), Live At The Apollo (BBC 2), The Jonathan Ross Show (ITV), Tonight at The London Palladium (ITV), Celebrity Juice (ITV2), 8 Out Of 10 Cats (Channel 4), 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown (Channel 4), Alan Carr’s Chatty Man (Channel 4) and Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central (Comedy Central) 

‘Hugely funny…deliciously entertaining’ **** The Times

‘…an absolute tour de force’ Beyond The Joke

‘A cracking good show’ - The Telegraph

‘One of comedy’s hottest properties...very talented, very funny’ - London Evening Standard

'He remains one of the most entertaining observational comics on the block' - The Independent 

 

Seann will be joined by the hilarious Mark Olver, and 1 further comedian, details to be released soon.

Bristol-based Mark Olver is a stand-up comedian and experienced TV warm-up artist. He performs at comedy clubs all over the UK, has supported comedians such as Russell Howard and is also the warm-up act on TV show Deal or No Deal. Olver has been described as ‘cheerful and funny’ and ‘a genuine feel good show’.

This entertaining evening will see the Dolman Hall transformed, with picnic benches set within, all socially distanced, and those who book earliest will be seated closest to the front. The perfect spot to wonder at Walsh!

There will be table service in operation, providing a range of food and drinks so that you can really make an evening of it. We ask for you to wear a face mask when moving around the venue, but this can be removed when seated at your bench.

A picnic bench costs £70 (plus booking fee) and can seat up to 4 people. So gather your mates and make sure you don’t miss out!
