Stand Up in the Basement Comedy - Hal Cruttenden | Paul Cox


Southampton once-a-month-on-a-Tuesday Comedy Club, now at Heartbreakers venue

No prizes for guessing that STAND UP IN THE BASEMENT is a stand up comedy night and guess what? It’s on a Tuesday night! Meaning you get to see top TV comics making you chuckle in the same room, and for a fraction of the normal price!

As well as familiar faces from TV, we feature some of the best circuit comics, plus new raw talent and occasionally a few big names who wanna come and try out some new material. It’s tailor-made for people who love live comedy! You’ll get to see a diverse range of comic talent in an intimate space.



After 21 years and 224 days Hal’s back being single. But it’s all going to be fine. Instead of getting the therapy he clearly needs, he’s made a cracking show about it. He’s lost enough weight to almost get his wedding ring off and, while he may be flying solo, he’s far from alone; he’s got his grown-up daughters, his dogs and his divorce lawyer. The fickle finger of fate has turned Hal’s life upside down but he’s sticking a finger right back at it.

Hal is one of the country’s best loved stand ups with appearances on: Live at the Apollo, Have I Got News For You, The Royal Variety Performance Would I Lie To You, The Great British Bake Off: An Extra Slice and The Apprentice: You’re Fired.

"Paul has an everyman like-ability that makes you feel like you've known him for years." "Don't be fooled by Paul's relaxed, chatty demeanor like he's your mate down the pub, he has killer lines & a warm, relatable style that also happens to be really bloody funny.Paul Cox has been cutting his teeth on the London and UK comedy circuit since 2015, performing at some of the best clubs alongside the stars, where he is very much at home. Tour support for Hal Cruttenden, Paul McCaffrey and Esther Manito, Byline Festival, Victorious. 

"Loads of hilarious, relatable material, warmly delivered. Like having a beer down the pub with your funny mate & you'll be gutted when the last orders bell rings on his set, I would not hesitate to book him again." – Paul Mccaffrey

”Very funny and warm'' - Evening Standard

​“Delivering a powerhouse performance with expert timing, a high gag rate, and big belly laughs, Paul had my audience in the palm of his hand'' - Comedy at the Alverbank


Our compere and your host for Stand in The Basement, Colin Owens, is an award-winning stand-up comedian, who has worked with Jimmy Carr, the teams behind The Inbetweeners and Mighty Boosh. Described as ‘laconic and charming’, Colin talks about his failings, inadequacies, mistakes and general stupidity, all tinged with an air of paranoia and insecurity, but delivered with supreme confidence and sexual edginess!

“Genuinely Brilliant” – Jimmy Carr
“Brilliant performer” – Frank Skinner
“Brilliant, like a funny neighbor” – Tim Vine
“I knew he’d be funny and he was” – Michael McIntyre
