🎟 Book Now -


The Big Room Comedy Club is back after one of our most hilarious nights ever in May. This event promises to be another one - especially as our regular MC Sam Harland returns.


Featuring an all-star cast:


• Host & Compère Sam Harland
• Mike McClean
• Stephen Cookson
• Paul Pirie


Sam Harland:
Sam’s unique, observational humour, is drawn from his Hull working class roots. He is able to engage his audience in a warm, quick-witted and friendly manner. Sam's material is self-deprecating, ironic and honest, particularly in relation to his colourful past escapades.


He is the consummate professional and delivers constantly. His popularity among his audience and fellow comedians is well deserved. He is regarded as amongst the best Host & Compère’s on the circuit.


Mike McClean:

Mike Squeaky McClean is probably best known for presenting the Big Breakfast on C4 , The roving reporter for Richard and Judy for 7 years as well as presenting a whole host of television shows for the BBC, ITV , C5 sky1 and Nickelodeon. Mike also appeared in the office Xmas special with Ricky Gervais, as an actor he played Father Tony in Shameless, and Fins Dad in My Big Fat Diary.
Mike originally trained as an actor at the Arden school of theatre in Manchester, however having had enough of being a tree and spending hours learning how to breath which he does in his sleep, Mike gravitated towards stand up and quickly broke into the stand-up circuit with his very funny very clever Mind reading act.
Mike is one of the best and funniest Mind readers on the circuit and is always busy either on tour or traveling the world with his bizarre mind reading act. Mike remains lovable and down to earth individual who has stayed true to his comedy roots, His razor-sharp delivery has made him a favourite both on the circuit and in the corporate world.
If you like Derren Brown then you’re going to love Mike, he’s like him only cheaper and a little naughtier,  Mike doesn’t have magical powers or psychic ability and neither does he ever work with stooges or plants to achieve his work. The unwitting participants on his show are entirely genuine and easily fooled.   
Mike recently wrote his Autobiography entitled “OH I REMEMBER HIM” which has been given 5 stars by his mum. its available from amazon or from Mike direct.


Stephen Cookson:
Winner World One Liner Championship 2019, ROFL Comedy Club, Stoke

Winner 'King Gong', The Comedy Store, Manchester, November 2017
Winner Barnoldswick comedian of the year 2016.
Runner up Nando's comedian of the year 2015.
"Old whippersnapper and worryingly funny. Frankly I hope he stops doing comedy before he costs me work" Gary Delaney


“Stephen Cookson has some of the finest crafted one-liners on the circuit today. He also possesses a finely tuned comic timing way beyond his experience as a newer comic" Phil Walker


“Deadpan one-liners that were perfectly executed and written. Had one lady hyperventilating and begging for him to stop. The quality of this man’s gags are up there with Milton Jones and Gary Delaney” Bryan Malcolm (The Haha Club)


Paul Pirie:
Paul Pirie is a stand out Scottish stand up comedian. His physical, theatrical presence on stage and his sharp, rapid-fire comedy onslaught is packed with highly entertaining material, blurring the line between real-life anecdotes and flights of fancy.


Shortly after embarking on a stand up comedy career, he was runner-up in the Scottish Comedian Of The Year competition and a member of the Glasgow-based comedy improv group, Dance Monkey Boy.


A confident and intelligent comedian, Paul is a regular performer at the UK’s best comedy clubs and has performed across the world, from Australia to shows for the Armed Forces in Iraq and Afghanistan.
