Copy details

It's April's show at the Four Horsemen!

6 top acts for you this month, with the incredibly funny Ian Murphy opening the show. His humour is a combination of his Liverpudlian roots, a previous life as a footballer and his current bemusement at how he’s welcomed into polite society without being frisked. He has a sharp and cutting wit that serves him well with any crowd. Ian is the current Devon comedian of the year.

Ben Ashurst will be rounding off the evening for us. Featured on BBC Radio, Stand Up For Cider Winner 2023 Ben has quickly established himself as a rising star of the comedy circuit. His warm, likeable stage presence coupled with self-deprecating humour will definitely leave you wanting more.

They're joined by: 
Joe Fortis - He's a firm favourite of our audiences, despite his brummie accent. Joe is a talented young comedian with some great observational humour that runs to the darker side of things.

Sam Chant - Sam is a Painfully self deprecating, observational comic, trying to Adult amidst the challenges of fatherhood, an obsession with bad food and a wife who is not “satisfied.” Sam continues to move from strength to strength and has been a finalist in the Southampton comedian of the year competition and Laughter Class.

Martin Potts -  A sussex based comedian who has reached the semi-finals of South Coast Comedian Of The Year 2022 and more recently the accolade of 
‘Stand Up For Cider 2023 Finalist’. Potts has a unique view on every day life topics such as Dating, Social Media and Reality TV that is sure to have you roaring with laughter with his witty observations.

Nathan Ramsden-Lock - a one man variety show with an offbeat mix of visual gags, puns,  one liners and comical songs so catchy, you’ll still be singing them on the way home! He has won the UK Pun Off multiple times and his work has been featured on BBC Radio.

6 exceptional acts and fantastic drinks bargains combine to create an excellent night's entertainment.
