Dara Ó Briain: So… Where Were We?
Dara Ó Briain is back on tour with a brand-new show! Arriving at The Cresset on Friday 10 March.
At the end of his last tour, Dara had performed the show Voice Of Reason 180 times, over two years, across 20 countries from Auckland to Reykjavik, from Moscow to New York; and by March 2020 he was ready for a break!
He would now like to apologise for saying that and will never wish for anything like that again.
Yes, he’s back on tour, and he will never stop again, because that’s clearly what caused all this trouble. Instead, in his new show So… Where Were We? Dara will hardly mention the last year and a half, because, Jesus, who wants to hear about that? Instead, Dara will fire out the usual mix of stories, one-liners, audience messing and tripping over his words by talking too quickly because he’s so giddy to be back in front of a crowd.
“Pure, undiluted comic genius” Evening Standard
“His set is a masterclass in intelligent, no-frills stand-up” The Guardian
“If you want a comic who can hold an audience in the palm of his hand for two hours, here’s your man” The Times
Dara Ó Briain is one of the UK & Ireland’s favourite stand-up comedians and television presenters. He is best known for hosting Mock The Week, Robot Wars, Three Men in a Boat, Dara and Ed’s Great Big Adventure, Stargazing Live, Dara Ó Briain’s Science Club, and the documentary Dara Ó Briain Meets Stephen Hawking, all on BBC Television. He also currently hosts Comedy Central’s hit gameshow Blockbusters.
The Little Mermaid Adult Panto
Join us under the sea as Adult Panto Tour returns to The Cresset on Thursday 16 February with a brand-new naughty little tail… The Little Mermaid. The Little Mermaid will be an all-star Adult Panto Tour production featuring a cast of returning queens and actors from Adult Panto previous productions over the past four years!
Complete with her iconic red wig and a silver tail, Divina de Campo leads the cast in the title role of The Little Mermaid herself.

Featuring beautiful scenery, sparkling costumes and all the usual jokes, comedy, camp songs and filth you’d expect, you’ll have a whale of a time down where it’s wetter!
Tim Vine: Breeeep!
It’s Tim Vine and he’s back with a brand-new stand-up show! Come to The Cresset on Tuesday 9 May and enjoy a mountain of nonsense, daft one-liners, joyful songs, wobbly props and ridiculous humour. (Plus utter drivel.) Witness the stupidity. Then leave. Switched on the Christmas lights in Cheam two years on the run. All tickets non-repundable.
“Is there a more ludicrous comedian in Britain?” The Times
Tim’s like the manager of a sweet shop where all the sweets are replaced by jokes, and he serves them in the order he chooses. So, it’s like a sweet shop where the manager just throws sweets at you.
‘I used to live hand to mouth. Do you know what changed my life? Cutlery’. – Tim Vine
Winner of Dave’s Best Joke of the Fringe 2010 and 2014. Star of The Tim Vine Chat Show (BBC Radio 4) and numerous TV appearances.
Enjoy the foolishness. Then leave.
