Overview

Part of this year's Lighthouse Outside programme, taking place in the amphitheatre to the side of Lighthouse in summer 2022. An unforgettable theatre, music, comedy (for the grown ups and for kids) and more in our open air setting.  

Staged by our resident Comedy Club, Coastal Comedy who are winners of the Prestige award for Best Comedy Club in the Southwest 21/22. Offering the very best in stand-up talent in our outdoor amphitheatre. Come and enjoy a top night of live stand-up with 3 fantastic acts and host.

The headliner this month is the super talented John Lynn who first caught the stand-up bug after a visit to a comedy club in Dublin and instantly made a splash in his native Ireland with his laid-back delivery and natural stage presence and within eight months of his first gig, appeared on TV an unheard-of feat for a newcomer.

“THE RISING STAR OF IRISH COMEDY” Sunday Times

“ABSOLUTELY COMPELLING…AN EASY DELIVERY THAT LIKE THE LATE, GREAT DAVE ALLEN, CAN EXPLODE WITH ANGRY EYEBALL POPPING INTENSITY. HUGELY ENTERTAINING…SHADES OF DYLAN MORAN, BUT STILL COMPLETELY JOHN LYNN” Chortle

“CRACKING COMEDY. HAS A FINGER ON THE JITTERY PULSE OF OUR CASH STRAPPED AGE, WELL WORTH CATCHING” Daily Telegraph

Opening the show is JennyBSide winner of the Coastal Comedy Gong Show and many many more!

JennyBSide brings Gender Fluid Musical Comedy to Bournemouth with full force. Quickfire songs that combine her own brand of Trollopop with a sprinkle of Minchin and a dash of darkness to desensitise.

‘’Joyously Wrong & Infinitely Dirty, Lusciously Dark & Often Quite Flirty’’

Also there’s a special appearance from Mad Ron –The Third Hardest Man in Uxbridge, who is a comedy creation of Steve Lee, first appearing on the comedy circuit back in December 2015. Mad Ron has taken the circuit by storm. Now a multi award winning act and we look forward to welcoming him to Lighthouse.

Coastal Comedy offers a great chance to see a famous face close-up and personal, with the very best acts on the circuit. The night is hosted by local comic Adrienne Coles and sponsored by Turners Property. These shows have something to tickle everyone’s funny bone.
