Join us for another night of first class comedy from Lorna and friends. Tickets just £10 for a night of smashing stand-up!

On the menu tonight...


Anna is the comedy circuit's best kept secret. Multi-award winning with almost 20 years experience, she's a Cornish bumpkin with funny in her veins. First seen on the Russel Brand Show (Channel 4), she has gone on to win Riviera Comedian of the Year and a finalist in 'So you think you're funny?', Funny Women, Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year and Kings of Comedy (Channel 4). And now, Anna brings her offbeat comedy to Barry!

Just check out these testimonials -

"A stand-up able to create engaging personal warmth" (Fringe Report)

"Anna manages to be wonderfully pottymouthed but endearingly innocent at the same time. Naughty but nice" (West Briton)

"Sweet Cornish whimsy" (Russell Brand)

"It's all too easy to see why she's being touted as one of UK's sharpest, especially in the all encompassing deftness in which she disposes of two persistent gabblers stage right" (The Duck Egg Comedy Club)

"A genuine babbling brook of Cornish humour" (Druid Camp)

"Confident without being brash, at ease with the audience and just fantastically funny. One of the best acts we've ever had at the Guildhall for a long time, sheer class" (Gloucester Guildhall)

"Cornish comedy goddess" (Plymouth Herald)


A regular on the comedy circuit throughout the UK, in 2016 Leroy had a successful stint performing across the Atlantic in New York City. This was quickly followed with further success at the Edinburgh Fringe 2017 as part of the prestigious Lunch Time Special. Back home in Cardiff he’s had sold out solo shows at the Wales Millennium Centre and the Cardiff Glee. In November 2018, Leroy returned to the Wales Millennium Centre for two sold out nights with his show 3 Dads and will be returning this autumn with his new show StereoType.

Leroy returns this autumn as Rob in series two of Tourist Trap, the hit BBC sitcom about the Welsh Tourist Board starring Sally Phillips.

In September 2018, Leroy also recorded his second comedy commission, a 30 minute live stand up show titled Three Dads for BBC Radio Wales and will be returning to Radio Wales this autumn with a new sketch show.

“risky at times but never crude and always uniquely observational” (Buzz Magazine)

“With a unique take on family life and everyday struggles, Leroy’s easy going stage presence and slick delivery leave a lasting impression” (Cardiff Comedy Festival)


Josh Kingsford is a New Zealand based comic who's moved to the UK to pursue the comedy dream. With a cheeky smile and fiery red hair, the sky's the limit for this young Ron Weasley lookalike. Having won Best Newcomer in the New Zealand International Comedy Festival 2018, Josh combines wit, enthusiasm and a little imagination to create a hilarious and truly unique comedy experience.

"One of the most promising future talents of New Zealand comedy" (Joel Wood, Dank Comedy Show)


BBC Sesh star Lorna was a TV news presenter before turning to stand up. Since swapping headlines for punchlines, she has performed at Edinburgh and Leicester Comedy Festivals, won a comedy award in San Francisco and hosted many events - from comedy nights, festivals and car rallies to a cat carnival!

"A warm and natural MC who puts the audience at ease." – Nick Page

"A really good comedian." – Lloyd Langford
