Previous show details...


Raymond & Mr. Timpkins Revue

Cutting their teeth compering and performing in comedy and variety nights at The Wedgewood Rooms in Southsea, the nineties wafted gently past until, eventually and not before time, London called. With the fledgling postfix 'Revue', added, they blasted the clubs with their Guitar and Stylophone stylings, wowing rooms with super slick prop manipulation, dazzling jaded eyes with sandal based choreography that remains inimitable.

Now, they tour the country, regularly headlining at Jongleurs clubs, even venturing as far afield as The Falklands and Oman, to provide spiritual uplift to the brave boys and girls of the armed forces. Their latest foray is into radio comedy/drama. A 1930s murder mystery based in Brighton and a retelling of the Jack the Ripper tale have so far been forged in the red hot fires of their imaginations. Available for any project from feature films to mini series. They're good!

Fat Cat on TV!

Did you see the Fat Cat Comedy Club on telly? We were featured on BBC's Comedy Map of Britain. There are a couple of videos of Mark Watson reliving his first TV appearance all those years ago at our very own Fat Cat Comedy Club.


Every month the Fat Cat presents three (sometimes four!) comedians from the national and international comedy circuits, many are new faces, some are rising stars, and a some are old friends paying welcome return visit due to their unbridled popularity.

The Fat Cat Comedy Club has now established a great reputation on the comedy circuit. This is mainly down to the friendly, enthusiastic and slightly odd audiences it attracts. So be a part of it and maintain the Fat Cat Comedy Club as the biggest and best comedy club in the region.
