Live at the Empire

The biggest names in stand-up bring a huge night of laughs to London’s original comedy home.


February’s show is a double headliner special, with a headline set by SARA PASCOE – one of the finest comedians in the country, best known for her BBC2 stand-up special, Sara Pascoe Live: LadsLadsLads, her best-selling books Animal and Sex Power Money and her numerous TV appearances, such as Taskmaster, Q.I., The Jonathan Ross Show, hosting Live at the Apollo, hosting Comedians Giving Lectures and more.

Joining Sara is co-headliner DAVID O’DOHERTY, with a rare London set, of talking and songs played on his crappy keyboard from 1986. One of the UK’s best-loved comedians, a regular on C4’s 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown, as seen on Live at the Apollo and Q.I. and Edinburgh Comedy Award winner.

Also appearing is Netflix stand-up special star, Radio 4 series star, and star of her upcoming Channel 4 sitcom, Feel Good, MAE MARTIN. ‘Fast becoming the finest comedian of her generation’ (Metro). Plus! the multi award winning comedian KIRI PRITCHARD-MCLEAN brings her quick wit and powerhouse stand-up – as seen on Live at the Apollo, Have I Got News for You, 8 out of 10 Cats, Frankie Boyle’s New World Order and more. ‘Electrifying’ (Independent) .

Hosting the night is Live at the Apollo star, Mock The Week regular and recent Jonathan Ross Show guest SUZI RUFFELL. She’s one of the most exciting talents around, and rapidly rising through the comedy ranks. ‘A stand-up gem’ (Guardian).


‘Pascoe uses erudite references as just one strand of an offbeat worldview, offset by moments of gloriously deliberate dumbness and delivered with nothing less than full-megawatt charisma’
The Guardian
