Southampton once-a-month-on-a-Tuesday Comedy Club, now at Heartbreakers venue
🎙WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT

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.

⭐ HARRIET KEMSLEY
Harriet couldn't make November's show last minute, so she'll be storming the stage Feb '24 instead
Harriet Kemsley is an awkwardly chaotic force on stage as she apparently is in life. Straight out of the traps, she’s into disarmingly frank stories and is unguarded and outwardly messy, but between all the confessions and wackiness she slips in some weighty themes by stealth. "At the dawn of her TV career" (Radio Times), You'll have seen her on: Live at the Apollo, 8 out of 10 Cats does Countdown, Hypothetical, Roast Battle, Guessable, As Yet Untitled, Comedy Central at the Comedy Store, Bobby & Harriet Get married.

‘A quirky very funny new stand up… her style is refreshingly original and she’s a seriously good writer‘ – Time Out
⭐ COLIN OWENS [COMPERE]
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
