It’ll be Summer soon folks!



So we thought as the last one was such a smash hit we’d do another Comedy Night this coming April and once again we have two well respected UK comedians joining us, compered by our very own Rob Hitchmough from Rugby’s U11s. All Old Rutlishians’ are welcome to buy tickets.

Ben Norris is a highly experienced and hugely well respected stand-up. He’s been performing comedy since 1993 and is renowned for his incredibly relaxed stage persona and his innate ability to improvise as well as deliver sharply crafted material.

Ben’s TV credits include: “Mock the week” (BBC 1), “The Comedy Store” (Paramount and Comedy Central), “Never mind the Buzzcocks” (BBC 2), “They think it’s all over” (BBC 2). He has written and performed three solo shows at The Edinburgh Festival: ‘Sitting room only’ (1997), ’Mr Ambiguousness’ (2013), and ‘Benny on the loose’ (2014)

Ben was Ed Byrne’s tour support for his 2013 UK tour and appeared at the Apollo, Hammersmith.

“The term “circuit legend” is overused, but Norris is one of a handful that have been headlining for more than two decades and rarely departs a stage without leaving it torn to shreds in his wake. A master of the craft, this will be an hour of the most polished stand-up you are likely to see 

GQ Magazine

“With 20 years on the clock, Norris is one of the most bankable headliners around and is a brilliant improviser”

The Guardian

..unbelievably brilliant
