Every Friday night Chuckle Busters hosts a selection of top comedians in The Wardrobe Theatre (“a perfect room for comedy” – Stuart Goldsmith).
A rotation of our favourite shows from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and famous names trying out new material, plus a selection of budding newer acts handpicked from the vibrant Bristol comedy scene.
Top acts that have performed with us recently include Nish Kumar, Fern Brady, Ed Gamble, Spencer Jones and Mark Steel so you never know who might turn up!

Stuart Laws’ boundlessly energetic stand-up involves telling stories that weave material in with improvised audience interaction.

“It’s a confident performance of confident material…priceless” Chortle
Annie McGrath has written and appeared on ITV2’s @elevenish, as well as Channel 4 online’s show Girls Go Trolling. Annie has featured on BBC Radio Wales, BBC Radio 4 Extra and has been shortlisted for the Funny Women award and Dave’s Top Ten Funniest Jokes of the Fringe.
“McGrath’s dry sense of humour together with cool deliveries works a treat… Ridiculously funny” The Edinburgh Reporter
