Alternative festive fun with Christmas Comedy

Prepare for an evening of side-splitting laughter with Christmas Comedy at Royal & Derngate.. With a line up of three top notch comedians performing from Tuesday 8 to Thursday 10 December, this will be an ideal Christmas party outing, as they deliver a winter wonderland of festive funnies.

Topping the bill is internationally acclaimed Canadian comic Mike Wilmot, Time Out Comedy Award-winner and co-star of BBC 4's Rich Hall's Fishing Show and Rich Hall's Cattle Drive. Mike’s effortlessly funny style is a fast-paced, hard-hitting comedic look at everyday life.  His comedy targets vary widely, from diets, kids and sex to American-Canadian backbiting and his fondness for beer. A proud cynic, Mike is politically and anatomically incorrect, but with a passing resemblance to Oliver Reed he is completely engaging.

Rob Deering first made his mark on TV when he joined the intrepid cast of 99 Things To Do Before You Die (on Five) and has since turned up consistently on TV and at comedy clubs around Britain, lambasting pop culture, promoting apple-based alcoholic beverages and playing widdly-widdly rock guitar, all with his inimitable cheesy egotism.

Mike and Rob are joined by Carl Donnelly, who has fast established himself as one the most exciting new comics climbing the comedy ladder, picking up a nomination for Best Newcomer at the prestigious 2009 Edinburgh Comedy Awards. His conversational style and silly sense of humour have seen him win a host of awards and become a regular act and MC at clubs all over the country.

Royal & Derngate's Christmas Comedy offers a great adult alternative for festive entertainment. Mike Wilmot, Rob Deering and Carl Donnelly take to the Royal stage for three nights only, from Tuesday 8 to Thursday 10 December at 8pm and tickets are just £11 and £13. And if you book for a group of 10 or more you’ll get £1 off each ticket – so don't miss out on a hilarious night out with friends and work-mates. Book now by calling 01604 624811 or visit
