The Antics Joke Show Ft. Jollyboat

After a string of outrageously successful shows in 2018, you don’t want to miss The Antics Joke Show in April! Featured in The Bristol Magazine and Bristol 24/7, The Antics Joke Show is the hottest ticket in town. Bristol-based comedy collective Up The Antics return for another jam packed night of stand-up, sketches and improv all for only a fiver. So, what's on the bill?

Headline Act: JOLLYBOAT

Stopping in with us on their national tour, the Jollyboat boys are back for a record third appearance headlining the Antics Joke Show! Jollyboat are the UK's best comedy-pirate-geek-rock duo. Brothers Tommy and Ed write catchy songs and lyrics packed with fast-paced one-liners. They always have fun, and it's highly infectious.

Jollyboat have performed at Glastonbury among many other festivals, won the UK Musical Comedy Awards, and toured Europe & Australia. This is a show unlike anything you've seen before!

Improv from: HALFWAY UP

Improvisers from Up The Antics create a whole word set in one room, from just a one-word suggestion. What could possibly go wrong?

"Up The Antics ... are taking the city by storm" (The Bristol Magazine)

Standup from: LAURA OLLERTON

Laura is a standup comedian gently meandering towards her dream after making a pocket-sized joke book when she was 8. Tasting the crumbs of everyday things and putting a layer of absurd icing on top, she’s an amiable weirdo who wants to share her ideas. Who is life, what are we here and is it OK to talk to your hoover?


"Hubert McIntyre starred in Zomo the Rabbit, and is wildly exuberant, full of slapstick and mischief. He is a small but triumphant hero clad in a colourful dashiki and a cap. Adept at Powerpoint, InDesign and Word. My third favourite Bristol comedian."
