After sell-out shows, the Octagon Comedy Club is back in summer 2022 for even more laughs!

Join us one Friday a month and enjoy a hilarious night of live stand-up from some of the best names in comedy.

For July’s Octagon Comedy Club we are delighted to bring full length preview shows from 2 unmissable stand-ups – BBC Radio 2’s Rob Rouse and Britain’s poshest comic - the honourable Tom Houghton!   

See brand-new material before anyone else with these works in progress.


Winner of Best Comedy Performer at Buxton Fringe 2021 , Rob will be putting the final polish onto 'No Refunds' before taking it to the Fringe. 

In March 2020 Rob was onstage playing to sell out audiences in London’s West End in ‘Upstart Crow The Stage Show.’ Then lockdown happened and something new was spawned – 'No Refunds'

“A big, daft snapshot of the lengths the garrulous comic has gone to in order to keep himself sane over lockdown” ★★★★ The Scotsman

“No refunds really zings with unrestrained silliness” Chortle



Tom has had quite the year. His viral videos of living in The Tower of London have gained him over a quarter of a million followers and made headlines in The Sun, The Times, China, Taiwan, Australia and America.

Not only that, he's dived head first into the crazy world of reality TV, starring in Netflix's “The Circle”.

Hot off the back of supporting Milton Jones on tour and then completing his own first national sell out tour, Tom now brings his work in progress show “Red Flag” to the Octagon ahead of the fringe, before taking it on tour internationally.

But these turbulent times have shone a spotlight on the red flags that were appearing in his life. It's time to step up and take responsibility for his own actions.

An uplifting exploration into the dangers of social media, the harshness of reality and how true change begins at home.

★★★★ “Warrants a 21-gun salute" Daily Telegraph
