Double-bill of two new 60 minute sets, back to back with Stewart Lee.
Tornado questions Stew’s position in the comedy marketplace after Netflix mistakenly lists his show as reports of sharks falling from the skies are on the rise again. Nobody on the Eastern Seaboard is safe.
Snowflake questions Stew’s worth in a society demolishing the liberal values he has been keen to espouse in a fairy-tale landscape of winter wonder.

As well as being the all-round entertainer we all know and love from the telly, Count Arthur Strong is also a lifelong fan of astronomy, since having been given a microscope, or whatever it is they use, for Christmas when he was a small precocious baby. In fact, it’s said the ﬁrst word he spoke was Uranus. In this, his brand new show, he seamlessly combines the very best showbiz entertainment you’ll currently ﬁnd, in the world, possibly?
As he wrestles with some of the big questions that other all round entertainers shy away from. Such as: Are we alone in the universe? Is there life on Mars bars? 2lbs of potatoes. Packet of ginger nuts. Don’t lose this shopping list.
"Do not miss this not to be missed type of thing! If I wasn’t in the show I’d deﬁnitely be in the audience watching myself intently. Laughing and learning in equal measure. Thoroughly happy to pay the admission fee and deﬁnitely not asking for a refund. Also not rustling sweet wrappers and ﬁddling with my sodding telephone with a gormless expression on my face. See you there!" Arthur
"Undeniably brilliant." Brian Logan, The Guardian
"Pure genius and pure tribute to the golden age of vaudeville." Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard

Following his five-star Olivier-nominated hit My Family: Not The Sitcom and the return to number 1 of his seminal football anthem Three Lions, David Baddiel comes back to the stage with a brand new one-man show, Trolls: Not The Dolls.
Trolls: the terrible people who spend all day insulting and abusing strangers for no other reason than to fill the huge gaps in their souls. There is a common wisdom about how to deal with trolls: don’t, for goodness sake, encourage these people by replying to them.
It’s a good law. And it’s one that David Baddiel has consistently broken. Because David has always seen trolls as hecklers, and if a comedian gets heckled, it is their duty not to ignore the heckler, but to wittily put them down. Over the years, David has spent a lot of time doing this, which has led him to think that there might be a show in it: a show that would say something about how we live now.
David has stories to tell, of the dark, terrible and hysterically absurd cyber-paths that interacting with trolls has led him down. Come with him on this comedy journey into our culture’s most dank virtual underground. You will come back safe, more able to deflect your own trolls, and only a little bit soiled.
"Boasts side-splitting laughs and also moves people to tears." Evening Standard
"Hugely funny." The Times
"Compelling to watch both for its unvarnished truth and complicated affection." The Guardian
"A show that bubbles with love and unexpected joie de vivre." The Telegraph

What happens when pure comedy takes human form?
What happens when a creature is created and bred to do stand up?
Nobody knows because that isn’t a thing. What is a thing is Ross Noble doing a show. You can come and see it. This is it.
"He is pure delight." The Times
"Thrilling to watch... weepingly funny." Mail on Sunday
