Hello BathComCal pals! It’s been an incredibly busy start to the month, but we’ve got a couple of very exciting shows to tell you about over the next few days.
First up, this Saturday at the Rondo it’s host of the Comedian’s Comedian Podcast and ‘expert stand-up’ (Times), Stuart Goldsmith! He says of his show: ‘This year: second international tour, seven million downloads, critically-acclaimed Edinburgh Fringe run, and look, honestly? My best ever show. I’m so goddamn proud of this, it’s stupider and less clever-clogs and just the funniest stuff I’ve ever created. OK? Back to the PR…
Come see how ‘a master of the form’ (Independent) ‘makes it look easy’ (Chortle.co.uk). Via As Yet Untitled and Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central.
Winner: Leicester Comedy Festival Best New Show 2017.

We’re big fans. We saw his last show, Compared to What? at the Widcombe Social Club last year, and if you were there on the night, you will know exactly what we mean when we say Stuart is giddy, joyful, and sharp as anything on stage. Do not miss the chance to catch him back in Bath, there are still tickets available so get on it!
On Monday it’s the regular Saddlegoose New Comedy Night at the Bath Brew House. Now, don’t tell anyone* but the lineup for this one is extremely strong. The second half will consist of a preview from local legends Morgan Rees, Riordan DJ and Jamie D’Souza, and the other half will see a range of phenomenal comedians trying new jokes out for your pleasure right in the atmospheric Tank Room above the pub.
Return to the Brew House on Thursday for another pair of work in progress shows starting with rising star Sarah Keyworth, tour support for Stewart Francis and Kerry Godliman, who brings an hour of brand new stand-up that shines a light on the relationship between a little girl and a world that is failing her. After that, it’s Peter Dobbing, who is funny, upbeat and surprisingly articulate. Former street performer and defrocked futurologist was banging on about bitcoin as far back as 2014. Having recently performed at the Adelaide Fringe and Mach, he will be pretending to talk about technology, but mostly talking about himself.
*tell literally everyone, we love seeing new faces at our little night!
