Gag House Comedy Superstars at White Rock Theatre, Hastings - 8th February 2019

As a busy mother of three I am always looking for an excuse to escape for the evening with my husband. There is nothing we like doing more than laughing, and going to see a comedy show is a great way to do this. In 2018 we went to see loads of comedians at our local theatres and we hope to do the same for 2019.

It's not always easy to see the big stars though as the prices can get pretty steep, and last year we missed a couple as it would have been £80 for the two of us and for a local night out in East Sussex, we thought that was a bit steep. For this reason I was super pleased to learn that Gag House Comedy are bringing a show to the White Rock Theatre in Hastings on Friday 8th February 2019, with the show starting at 8pm.

The cost of the tickets for this show is £20.50 - £22.50 including the booking fee, so I think that's really reasonable and especially when you consider it's a show being compared by Mark Dolan, with Lee Nelson headlining, accompanied by Jen Brister and Stephen Bailey.

If you're anything me, those names might not mean that much to you, but I suggest you do my trick and google them because photos and YouTube clips resonate much better than names. As soon as I start to see the likes of Lee Nelson and Jen Brister doing sets on Live at the Apollo, I know they are going to be brilliant acts and I'm getting excited for a great night already.

Lee Nelson
From council estate to comedy and entertainment king, Lee Nelson had over two million people watching his BBC 3 hit Well Good Show. With five sell-out tours to date and a host of appearances on Live at the Apollo (BBC1), Lee Nelson’s Well Funny People (BBC3), Al Murray’s Multiple Personality Disorder (ITV1), Sunday Night at The Palladium (ITV) and The John Bishop Show (BBC1), Lee Nelson is one of the biggest stand-up stars in the country.

Mark Dolan
The night will be expertly compered by Mark Dolan who recently emerged unscathed from a stint on Channel 4’s The Jump. A highly skilled comedian, broadcaster and writer, Mark is best known as host of Channel 4’s iconic comedy series Balls of Steel.

Stephen Bailey
Stephen's winning comedy and charming personality have propelled him to starring in a number of varied TV projects. Stephen is the host of Channel 5’s newest reality show Celebs On The Farm and can be seen weekly as the resident agony uncle on ITV1’s Zoe Ball On Saturday & Sunday.

Jen Brister
Completing the line-up is critically acclaimed stand-up comedian, writer and actor Jen Brister. She has written and performed five solo shows at comedy festivals around the world and has toured extensively — with comedians Kerry Godliman, Francesca Martinez and Roisin Conaty, among others — and is currently supporting Frankie Boyle in London.

It sounds good, right? You can book direct with the White Rock Theatre online or by calling 01424 462288.

Don't forget that the show is of an adult nature and will suit those who are 18+ years and not offended easily.

Go on, why don't you follow in my footsteps and spend some of that Christmas money on a great night out for you and your other half. You'll never regret laughing and making memories, it's money far better spent than on new clothes!

Disclosure: We've received two complimentary tickets for this show, in return for my helping to spread the word.
