An awesome trio of headliners to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Fat Cat

May's Fat Cat is going to near the end of our comedy season with a bang. Three famous acts will be hitting the stage bringing us not just one, but three headline worthy acts!


Andrew Maxwell

You may recognise the irish Maxwell from TV Series 'Mock the Week' as well as the BBC's Live at the Apollo. His forte is producing strong and logical arguments that you may not necessarily agree with, but still laugh at. Most notably was his referendum-themed show at last year's Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Be sure not to miss Maxwell's tantalisingly contentious social commentary.

'Maxwell has created a super show here, wide ranging, intelligent, self- deprecating, accessible and importantly, very funny, you couldn't ask for more...' - Chortle

'With his lightly worn intelligence and bold articulacy, Maxwell can afford to be modest and make seemingly extreme statements and exaggerations for comic effect, then win you round to his way of thinking with logical argument and persuasive metaphor.' - Scotsman



Phil Nichol

Crazy Canadian Phil Nichol returns to the Fat Cat. His energy is infectious, it's amazing he even manages to take a breath in his sets! You cannot beat a bit of musical talent too, his songs will have you in stitches. He thrives on spontaneity and improvisation, the perfect kind of stand up.

'You won't see many comedy shows that actually exert g-force...exhilarating, incredibly funny and clever.' - The Scotsman



The Boy With Tape On His Face

Described as one the most accessible and enjoyable shows ever seen, the boy with the tape on his face has to be seen to be believed. Can you imagine a stand up with no talking, no acting as such, only miming? You will be absolutely fascinated with this extremely unique style of comedy. So as the old saying goes, less is more - come and see this silent comic.



The Fat Cat Comedy Club is at the apex, Bury's great public venue.

Admission is 12. You can book tickets online, in person at the apex or by telephone on 01284 758000.


The box office at the apex is open Mon - Sat 10am - 5pm and on event days. A booking fee of 1 per transaction is applicable to all telephone ticket bookings and those made in person at the box office if paying by card.


The Dove sponsors the Fat Cat

The Fat Cat Comedy Club is grateful for the sponsorship of The Dove, Bury St. Edmunds. The Dove is a traditional alehouse on Hospital Road, and they supply various real ales to the Comedy Club each month for you to enjoy. The Dove won CAMRA East Anglia pub of the year in 2010 and 2013!

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.


The Fat Cat Comedy Club is at The Apex, Bury St. Edmunds (map here)
Bar opens at 7.00pm, show starts at 8.00pm.
