Hilarious comedy at The Met on the First Thursday of every month.

July’s event features two Edinburgh Fringe preview shows from Justin Moorhouse (with Stretch and Think) and Danny Ward (with You Get What You Pay For). Full details below. Preview shows are works in progress.

First Thursday Comedy at The Met is booked by Comedy In A Van.


Justin is back: still funny, yet middle-aged. A brand-new show that may contain: yoga, getting older, Madonna, shoplifters, labradoodles, middle-aged cyclists, the menopause, running, hating football fans but loving football, not drinking, funerals; Is tapas a rip off?

Captain Tom, Droylsden, the environment, self-improvement, ruining a sexual position, electric car charging spots used by doggers, nursery graduation, horses, Stig lookalikes, home-cooked food but not in your own home, the odd advantages of fundamental religions, the gym, shop-door etiquette.

And he’s got a new suit. Come, it’ll be fun.

“He charms the pants off the crowd” Sunday Times

“The amount of first-rate comic craft that goes into his routines is worthy of admiration” The Guardian

“Not a moment without laughter” Chortle

★★★★ Chortle ★★★★ Fest ★★★★ British Theatre Guide


As seen on BT Sports ‘DIY Pundit’ Danny Ward is returning to Edinburgh with his seventh solo show.

This time it’s all about the money. Does it make the world go round, is there such a thing as a bargain and what happens to his newly installed electric heated towel rail once the energy price cap is lifted?…spoiler it becomes just a towel rail.

Expect more of an examination of the faulty soft close toilet seat Ward bought from Wish.com than a critical study of capitalism in the 21st Century.

“Slick, quick, and packed with funny” ★★★★ Three Weeks

“Delightfully clever punchlines.” Chortle See less
