The Coastal Comedy Christmas Special

Running time: 120 mins


Get some festive funny and a top night of live comedy with 3 fantastic acts and host staged by multi-award winning Coastal Comedy. This show has 3 acts plus host and something to tickle everyone’s funny bone, with some of the very best stand-up comics on the circuit.

Our headline act is the incredible Paul Tonkinson. A sensational live performer, Yorkshire man, marathon runner and former (double award-winning) Time Out Comedian of the Year, Paul Tonkinson has long upheld his esteemed reputation as one of the finest stand-ups the UK has to offer. With a unique and distinctive style, Tonkinson is noted for his effervescent physicality and skillful impressions, which bring alive exuberant, tender comic reflections on love, family and the day-to-day idiosyncrasies of 21st century living. A plethora of first class material, combined with tremendous charm and irrepressible, infectious energy make for quite a formidable talent.

Jake Lambert opens the show! Described as ‘a joke machine’ by The Telegraph. Jake has performed stand-up all over the world supporting the likes of Michael McIntyre, Romesh Ranganathan, and Jack Dee.

His style of non-stop gag-filled storytelling has seen him appear on The BBC, Comedy Central, Live From The Comedy Store & Apprentice: You're Fired. He has written for an abundance of TV shows including The Royal Variety Performance, Michael McIntyre’s Big Show, Bake Off, 8 out of 10 cats, and more! His 2022 Edinburgh show Liminal was one of the best reviewed shows of the festival and his online videos have received over 100 million views. We look forward to welcoming him to The Barn for this special show.

Plus Dinesh Nathan. After winning several gong shows, Dinesh won South Coast Comedian Of The Year. In 2022 Dinesh appeared on BBC 3’s New Comedian of the Year awards and Comedy Central Live.

With a mix of high-spirited delivery and a sarcastic, self-deprecating viewpoint, Dinesh is a hit with any audience.

Hosted by Adrienne Coles this will be a top night out that won’t break the bank.

Over 18s only. Acts may change due to TV commitments.
