Join us for Work In Progress comedy sets from Catherine Bohart and Stuart Goldsmith.

Catherine Bohart

At the beginning of 2020, Catherine Bohart was busy writing a stand-up show about moving into a new home with her long-term partner and about how life in general was going pretty well.

This is not that show.

An hour of new material from the star of BBC2’s The Mash Report. As seen and heard on Mock The Week, Roast Battle, 8 Out of 10 Cats, The Stand Up Sketch Show and The Guilty Feminist Podcast.

"Destined for stardom" - Evening Standard

"The laughs keep coming and, finally, so does a tear or two. Marvellous" ★★★★ - The Times

"Beautifully-delivered hour" ★★★★ - Skinny

"Packed full of laughs" ★★★★ - Herald

"A winning mixture of self-deprecation and confidence" ★★★★ - Beyond The Joke

"A fully developed comic voice" ★★★★ - Fest

"Truly special" ★★★★ - Edinburgh Festivals Magazine

Stuart Goldsmith: "A Shared Illusion"

Sort of scaffolding really, but made of the poles they use for pole-vaulting. Did a Work In Progress in 2019, world ended, still got loads, written loads more. Open-hearted, honest and *guaranteed* potentially funny.

Host of The Comedian’s Comedian Podcast. As seen on Conan (TBS), As Yet Untitled (Dave) and Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central (Comedy Central).

★★★★★ - Independent

"Truly a comedy masterclass... Endlessly inventive" ★★★★ - List

"Yet further evidence of Goldsmith’s enormous talent and indisputable mastery of the genre" ★★★★ -

"Makes it look easy" ★★★★ -

"Goldsmith knocks it out of the park" - Times
