RIA_AWAKENING_450.jpgRia Lina

Fearless, provocative, and very funny, Ria Lina is a highly accomplished comedian, writer, actor and one of the hardest working performers in the business. After a critically acclaimed stand-out debut on Mock The Week (BBC), Ria has quickly become a household name seen regularly on shows such as Have I Got News For You (BBC) and Late Night Mash (DAVE). A hugely admired act on the UK comedy circuit, this multi-award-winning artist commands respect from the moment she walks onstage and delivers with natural ease, energy and fierceness.

2023 sees Ria embark on her first major UK Tour. In this preview for her highly anticipated debut tour show Ria addresses coming out of the pandemic, but also divorce, the new normal, dating in a digital world, motherhood, and what it really means to be a woman today.

Ria is not just the only Filipina comedian in British stand-up, she also has a BSc in Experimental Pathology, an MSc in Forensic Science, and a PhD in Virology under her belt, and with experience working in IT Forensics at the Serious Fraud Office, it’s not only Ria’s comedy that’s highly intelligent.

Ria is also passionate about being neurodivergent, and increasingly visibility of neurodivergent talent.

Ria’s TV credits include Have I Got News For You (BBC), Live At The Apollo (BBC), Mock The Week (BBC), Lovestruck High (Amazon Prime), The Last Leg (C4), Late night Mash (DAVE), Richard Osman’s House of Games (BBC), Unforgivable (DAVE), Question Team (DAVE), The Jeremy Vine Show (Channel 5) and many more.

Alexis Dubus 450.jpgAlexis Dubus - 3-Star Show

After 20 years on the circuit, Alexis Dubus, best known for his French alter ego Marcel Lucont and easily one of the comedians of his generation, is ready to deliver the greatest 3-star comedy experience ever staged.

Don’t miss this explosively average show from a multi-award-nominated performer truly at the middle of his game. Featuring jokes, tales, songs and poems, this is a show you'll be talking about for minutes to come.

As seen as a waiter in Derek (C4), an idiot in Nathan Barley (C4) and ‘3 Of 63’ in Red Dwarf XI (Dave).
