Alasdair Beckett-King – Nevermore | 1 May | Norwich Theatre Playhouse 

Comic, children’s author and successful YouTube creator Alasdair Beckett-King has appeared on Mock The Week and Comedy Central Live and is now heading to Norwich Theatre Playhouse. Nevermore is described as being an attack against The North Sea on paper – but in reality, a ‘silly, faintly mystical’ show, and ‘an island in a sea of existential terror and entirely justified fear’.  

Emmanuel Sonubi: Curriculum Vitae | 18 May | Norwich Theatre Stage Two 

Emmanuel will take the audience on a hilarious and sometimes poignant journey of the professions he’s had prior to becoming a comedian, discussing how those experiences helped shape his comedic voice. From working in IT to the doors of London’s nightlife whilst building up an impressive list of musical theatre credits. 

Michelle Brasier: Reform | 24 May | Norwich Theatre Playhouse 

A true story of the online scam when Michelle buys a Pilates reformer from scammer Jacob and a unique relationship is formed. This theatrical hour of storytelling and original music has audiences cringing at every naïve exchange between victim and conman and shouting, ‘No! Stop!’ before being swept along for the ride. 

Cerys Bradley: Not Overthinking Things 2019 | 25 May | Norwich Theatre Stage Two 

Did Cerys cause their parents’ divorce? Are they too mean to their work colleagues? Did they just make that interaction really awkward? Is a new year’s resolution ever going to be enough to fix their personality? In this surreal and silly interactive stand-up show/birthday party, you get to decide. 

Ed Byrne: Tragedy Plus Time | 1 Jun | Norwich Theatre Royal 

One of the UK’s favourite TV household names returns to the stage with a brand-new show as he heads to Edinburgh this summer, not before stopping off at Norwich Theatre Royal. Come and join Ed as he tests Mark Twain’s formula that humour is defined as tragedy plus time. 

Fin Taylor: Ask Your Mother | 7 – 8 Jun | Norwich Theatre Playhouse

Morgan Rees is officially 30, and hitting this milestone birthday has got him thirsty… for life. In his debut UK tour, Morgan is vowing to live his next decade authentically as a proud bisexual man, but not before celebrating the trials and improvements of his experimental 20s. 

Sofie Hagen: Will I Ever Have Sex Again? | 29 Jun | Norwich Theatre Playhouse 

Sofie Hagen is bringing her new stand-up show and her new book on tour. The book, out in May 2024, is a candid, hilarious and disarming attempt to explore our sexual landscape through conversations with experts, therapists, sex workers, porn stars, comedians and public figures.
