Kollider, Castle House, Angel Street, S3 8LU

Square Hole Comedy Club

Sun. 9 June 2019

The Red Deer

One of Sheffield’s hidden comedy treasures, tucked into the Red Deer's intimate function room. This month they’ll be headlined by Cheekykita, who is herself a hidden treasure: a larger-than-life clown known for oddball physical performances.

Made in Spain

Wed. 19 June 2019

Cellar Theatre

An evening of foot stomping comedy with Sonia Aste, a Spaniard living in the UK who believes "cultural differences are like Sangria – a mix that leaves a headache, but we always ask for more."

Tales Of Whatever

Multiple dates

Shakespeare's

Sheffield’s resident true storytelling night, in which well-known comedians are invited to the stage alongside other artists and performers to tell true stories of their lives which are funny and heartwarming in much the same way.

New Barrack Tavern, 601 Penistone Road, S6 2GA

An Edinburgh Fringe preview from a Sheffield alumni. Expect notes, deviation, uncertainty and a lower price than you’ll get after August – at preview shows, there’s magic in watching the primordial potential take shape in front of your eyes.
