    March welcomes 2 headliners from across the pond for you!! 
    Geoff Whiting and Dave Thompson!

    18 years ago, Geoff Whiting was an out of work food salesman who’d only been to one live comedy show in his life, and saw an advert for the Daily Telegraph Open Mic Award, and decided he had nothing to lose so he gave it a go! And, after reaching the competition’s semi-final and go through to the final; his career as a stand-up was established. Now Whiting heads the booking and management company Mirth Control, as well as continuing to perform himself. He’s done more than 4,500 stand-up gigs. He’s played all the UK’s leading clubs including The Comedy Store, Jongleurs and Komedia (Brighton and Bath) and is booked to gig in Times Square NYC this Summer.

    Dave Thompson has performed his stand-up comedy act in over thirty-three countries. Known for his zany style, he's written material for many famous names including Harry Hill, Omid Djalili, Ronnie Corbett, Bruce Forsyth, and Stewart Lee. Dave appeared in four feature films and numerous TV shows including ‘Harry Hill’s TV Burp’. He’s best-known as the actor inside the Tinky Winky costume in the world-famous TV show 'Teletubbies'. If you think that show was weird, wait until you see Dave live on stage!
