and live on Freeview channel 276
Following on from his ground-breaking 2018 show, Deaf Comedy Fam, Ray Bradshaw brings his new stand up show, Deaf Com 1 to Royal & Derngate on Sunday 12 February, covering his recent fatherhood, teaching his young son sign language and a disastrous trip to Bahrain!

The comedy continues on Thursday 16 February, with Sarah Keyworth’s latest show Lost Boy, and the on Friday 17 February Mike Bubbins, star of hit podcast The Socially Distant Sports Bar, brings his first ever solo UK tour, Throwback, to Royal & Derngate.
After supporting some of the biggest acts in the UK and appearances on Mock the Week and QI, Eshaan Akbar comes to the Underground on Saturday 25 February with his show The Pretender as part of his hotly anticipated debut tour.
Finally, on Friday 3 March, award-wining writer, actor and podcaster Rob Auton performs The Crowd Show, a comedy/theatre/spoken word show – about crowds.
