Here are two important facts about Rob Coleman: He writes beautifully crafted gags, stories and rants that increasingly come from his ever more bleak persona. He also possesses one of the finest heads of hair on the circuit. Headliner Christian Reilly began playing guitar and singing for Rich Hall and Bill Bailey which led to an appearance on Late Night with Conan O’ Brien. He’s the podcast sidekick of Richard Herring on As It Occurs To Me, voted best internet comedy at the highly-rated Chortle Awards. (plus guests) @christreilly

Currently supporting Russell Kane on his national tour, Welsh-Egyptian comic Omar Hamdi is one of the most distinctive rising stars in comedy. Njambi McGrath has been
described as the hottest thing to come out of Africa since the Sahara. Familiar face Andrew Watts is very nearly famous. However, he is already famous for once buying lavenderfrom a drug dealer in Brixton. (plus guests)
M/C’s for the night will be either esteemed performer and writer and broadcaster (BBC, Talkback…..the list just goes on and on) Martin Brown or young hairy upstart and bloke who seems to have a problem clearing his bedroom up when asked, Jack Brown, who will probably bore you with tales of him performing across the country opening for acts such as Russell Howard. I once gigged with Simon Pegg and Dylan Moran but you don’t hear me going on and on about it do you?!
Although to be fair you probably would if you lived in my house.
Hope you can come along to join our family (not in a weird way, you will not be required to drink Kool-Aid) at the Moonrakers Comedy Club at the Bear Cellarbar in Devizes. You are assured of a warm welcome and I promise it will be the most fun you have ever had in a Cellar. Unless of course you have a really dark secret and are a bit strange.
