We’re starting 2020 as we mean to go on and kicking off a brand-new decade (*gasps*) with a much-needed dose of positivity by way of our new campaign, Happy New Decade. As part of our mission to spread smiles across the land, something special is taking over The Cinema at Selfridges that’s sure to leave your sides and cheeks aching for days. No, it’s not a gym (new year, same you is absolutely fine by us), it’s – drumroll please – our very own Happy New Decade Comedy Club.

Hosted bi-weekly by the legendary Rich Wilson as compère, take a look at who tickles your fancy and book quickly to guarantee a laugh a minute. Plus, 100% of comedy club ticket proceeds will go to mental health charity Shout, the UK's first 24/7 crisis messaging service who offer help and support to those suffering from depression and mental health issues.

 

Thursday 16 January, 9pm – 10.30pm
Luke Rollason & Stephen Bailey

Luke Rollason

After two hit runs at Edinburgh Fringe with solo shows (nature documentary 'Planet Earth III' and the “full-of-silliness” 'Infinite Content'), followed by sell-out stints at SOHO Theatre – Luke's coming to the plush new Cinema at Selfridges. Performing absurdly creative physical comedy, the performer, writer and clown (no, really, he’s professionally trained) is laugh-out-loud material on tap.

Stephen Bailey

A last-minute addition to our Comedy Club line-up, we’re so excited to announce Stephen Bailey will be taking to our stage on Thursday 16 January. The buzzy comedian, presenter and writer has been billed as one of the most exciting up-and-coming acts in comedy, appearing on the BBC’s ‘Live At The Apollo’, ‘Celebrity Mastermind’ and ‘The Stand Up Sketch Show’. Not to be missed!

Thursday 30 January, 9.00pm – 10.30pm
Grace Campbell & Mae Martin

Grace Campbell

Grace Campbell is the 25-year-old firecracker challenging the patriarchy one joke, anecdote and outspoken show at a time. In a time when so much feels dark and uncertain, the daughter of ‘New Labour’ architect Alistair Campbell is putting the fight (and funny) back into politics. Having smashed her debut at Edinburgh Fringe, she’s about to embark on her first tour – see this rising star before she hits the biiiiiig time.

Mae Martin

Award-winning comedian and writer Mae Martin is gracing us with her brilliantly funny presence this January, and we couldn’t be more thrilled. Having just wrapped filming her Netflix and Channel 4 sitcom ‘Feel Good’ (which co-stars ‘Friends’ legend Lisa Kudrow, no less), Martin was also recently nominated for the main Edinburgh Comedy Award for her stand-up show ‘Dope’, which earnt her rave reviews on the comedy circuit. Definitely not one to miss.

Thursday 13 February 9.00pm –10.30pm

Diane Chorley & Joe Sutherland

Diane Chorley

Also known as the Duchess of Canvey, Diane Chorley’s been wowing and astounding audiences around the world (and, err, Essex) for decades. Join her in The Cinema at Selfridges as she sings her best hits, gossips about life in this business we call show, and regales with stories of her days running the cult ’80s Essex nightclub The Flick, all joined by her musical sidekick Milky. (Anyone else suddenly fancy getting a perm?)

Joe Sutherland

Bitingly funny and described by ‘The List’ as being “as sharp as his cheekbones”, stand-up comic Joe Sutherland’s starred on Comedy Central’s ‘Roast Battle’ and ITV’s ‘Stand Up Sketch Show’, and his 2018 show ‘Toxic’ was lauded as a must-see at Edinburgh Fringe. His unapologetically caustic, cynical and brilliant humour will have you in stitches.  

Thursday 27 February 9.00pm – 10.30pm
Roisin and Chiara & Jayde Adams

Roisin and Chiara

A whirlwind of stream of consciousness surrealism and improvisation, Roisin O’Mahony and Chiara Goldsmith have zany, physical comedy down to a fine art. Their most-recent show ‘Get Nupty’ was a tornado of dynamic storytelling, where they explored love, sexuality and friendship. “Beautifully silly”, so says the review by ‘The Sunday Times’. What more needs to be said?   

Jayde Adams

Actress, writer, singer and comedian (phew, is that all?) Jayde Adams is the winner of the 2014 Funny Women Award and 2016 nominee for Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards, amongst many, many other accolades. A former fishmonger at ASDA, Jayde left the fish counter behind when she caterpaulted to fame with her brilliant wit and show-womanship. She’s currently in the middle of touring her 5-star reviewed show ‘Serious Black Jumper.’  

Thursday 12 March 9.00pm – 10.30pm
 
Mawaan Rizwan + Rosie Jones  

Mawaan Rizwan

Feel-good, bursting with energy and with the odd dance routine thrown in for good measure, actor, writer and comedian Mawaan Rizwan knows how to put on a brilliant show. Mawaan shot to fame thanks to the power of YouTube (accumulating over 18 million views, no less), and has since written for Netflix hit ‘Sex Education’, had a sell-out Edinburgh Fringe show and supported Simon Amstell on his UK tour. Phew.

Rosie Jones

With potentially the most infectious laugh in comedy, Rosie Jones is a must-see on the comedy circuit. With guest appearances on ‘The Last Leg’, ‘8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown’ and ‘Mock The Week’, her cheeky, boundary-pushing humour is second to none.

Thursday 26 March 9.00pm – 10.30pm
Figs in Wigs & Bourgeois and Maurice

Figs in Wigs

Figs in Wigs (aka, Rachel Gammon, Suzanna Hurst, Sarah Moore, Rachel Porter and Alice Roots) is a five-piece performance collective that merges theatre, dance and comedy into one mind-bendingly absurd show. Monobrows, out-there hairpieces and bonkers costumes aside, their performances are hilariously mad-cap and brilliantly unconventional. Get ready for a generous slice of head-scratching hilarity.

Bourgeois and Maurice

Award-winning musical satirists Bourgeois and Maurice (otherwise known as Liv Morris and George Heyworth) put on one hell of a cabaret show. Sequined to the nines, the dynamic duo write earworm songs that’ll stick in your head for weeks to come, all complete with political and social commentary and darkly funny put-downs.
