Joining us in The Studio on Thursday 28th November, we are honoured to welcome, “Wickedly funny” (The Telegraph) and “Excellently dry” (The Times), easily the best French comedian on the UK circuit today. If you don't believe this, just ask him yourself, it's MARCEL LUCONT!!!

Hilarious… Comedy doesn’t get much better than this

The Advertiser, Adelaide Fringe

A pitch-perfect performance... His sardonic turns of phrase are an utter joy

Time Out

A must-see... In his own words, he is fantastic

Herald Sun, Melbourne Comedy Festival

Opening Act: BARRY FERNS

Three Weeks


Home Counties girl Vivienne Kay has been performing stand up for four years and brings a delightful charm undercut by wit and cynicism to shows throughout the UK.

Don’t let her apparent virtue fool you. Described as having ‘funny bones’, she mixes an innocence with unexpected darkness in gag filled sets.

Vivienne Kay has plenty to say ... think Joe Pasquale on helium ... a winning, slightly vulnerable persona


Solid comedy

The Wee Review

Quirky, on the money style… a talented comedian who makes the audience feel at home

Suffolk Punch Comedy Club.


Ben Cohen performed for us when we were still Comedy in The Crown and we’re thrilled to be able to bring him back to Humdingers Comedy. He’s a regular at lots of comedy clubs up and down the country and has also performed across Europe. Ben’s laid back self deprecating and anecdotal style is always a big hit with audiences.

2019 saw Ben take his first show up to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and he’s planning to make his full hour debut next year.

FINALIST 2018 New Jewish Comedian of the Year.

Ben has a wonderfully surreal style of observational humour
