For the best night out in Hungerford

Hungerford Comedy Club is our town's very own comedy venue, featuring professional acts from the Comedy Circuit in London and the South. Under normal circumstances, every two months, we host a line up of established comedy talent, including acts that have graced the stage of bigger venues like the world famous Comedy Store and have TV and radio credits to their names.

There is a change in the line-up for this evening. Adam Beardsmore has withdrawn but Jules OBrien has stepped in at short notice.

Our upcoming show is on Friday, September 24, 2021 in The Croft Hall. Doors open at 19:30:00, show starts at 20:00:00.
NB: We have a limited cash bar at this venue.

A night of professional stand-up comedy:

Chris Chopping
As seen on BBC One's Sesh Comedy, Chris Chopping combines killer one liners with hilarious anecdotes and a smattering of erudite smut. "Hilarious"-Paul Sinha "a really good comic, tremendously clever"-Metro

Priya Hall
Priya is a Welsh-Indian comedian and writer who has featured on BBC TV, Radio 4, Radio Wales, S4C and Radio Cymru. She is a series regular on Sunday Morning With Joanna Page (BBC Radio Wales) where she reports on the weekly news stories.

Priya's additional writing credits include Welcome Strangers (BBC Radio Wales), The Leak (BBC Radio Wales), and Ni Hefyd (S4C). Her comedy has been described as "hilariously oversharing" (Bristol 24/7) which is all fun and games but frequently gets her into trouble with her mum.

Adam Beardsmore
Adam has performed in some of the best clubs and grimiest pubs in the country. He has been heard on Radio 4Extra as part of BBC New Act 2018 and 2019, as well as being nominated for Birmingham Comedy Festival Breaking Talent Award.

She gained 2nd place in the New Online Comedian of the Year competition 2020, and is a regular performer on professional nights up and down the UK.

She has recently been featured on Next Up Comedy alongside Esther Manito and Luisa Omielan. Emily is also a talented improviser with the legendary Oxford Imps.

Howard Anstock
Delivering comedy that is upbeat in a friendly style (with an acidic edge) that draws audiences in to some unexpected true stories. Howard is an exciting new act described as "honest, very dry witted and clever jokes" 2 x beat the frog winner, Yorkshire fringe finalist (new act) 2019 and Cheshire cat comedy (new act) winner 2017.

Harry Stachini
Harry brought his Edinburgh show to Hungerford last year, and was a huge hit with the audience. With his sharp delivery and easy-going style, Harry has performed all over the UK at clubs such as The Manchester Comedy Store, The Glee Club, Manford's and has compered the AAA Early Show at the Pleasance Courtyard for the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Harry's stage presence as an act or compere is tremendously warm; crowds can't help but enjoy themselves when he takes them into his imagination with his charismatic stories and distinctive outlook on the world, leaving them in stitches.
