Comedy at The Civic

This May the Civic Theatre, Chelmsford, has two top comedians taking to the stage, as well as a special comedy event for children, and will have the audience in tears of laughter. 

Top entertainer Brian Conley will be on the Civic Theatre’s stage with his ‘Still The Greatest Performer – In His Price Range’ on Thursday 10 May. The much loved and talented entertainer-comedian will be performing some of his classic routines as well as new material, along with sketches and songs that will have the audience in stitches. See for yourself why Brian is one of the most respected and loved entertainers.

Star of TV and radio, Mark Steel, will be bringing his ‘Every Little Thing’s Gonna Be Alright’ tour to the Civic Theatre on Thursday 24 May. Just over a year ago Mark was living the ideal married suburban life, the UK was highly unlikely to leave the European Union and Donald Trump was a buffoon who wasn’t going to beat Hilary Clinton…..a lot can change in a year! The star of Radio 4’s ‘Mark Steel’s in Town’ examines his recent divorce, marriage mediation and the state of the world today, whilst trying to stay positive.

A special comedy treat for children will be ‘Comedy Club 4 Kids‘ on Saturday 19 May at 2pm, in the Cramphorn Studio. Aimed at everyone aged six and over, the club features some of the best stand-up comedians in the UK, all doing their side splitting routines, but without the rude bits! The club started in 2005 at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and been building upon its success with every year and is based at The Soho Theatre, London. Previous comedians to have appeared include James Acaster, Mitch Benn and Tom Allen. The afternoon promises fun for everyone.
