Andover Events Local News

Cracking comedy at The Lights!

The Lights, Andover has long been recognised as the home of comedy in Test Valley, and the venue is delighted to continue to enhance this reputation with a series of top signings for 2022

Watch German Comedy Ambassador Henning Wehn will give everything a good rinse and witness him wring sense out of the nonsensical with his new tour, It’ll All Come out in the Wash at The Lights on 10 and 11 February. Henning has no agenda, he just happens to be always spot on. It’s a curse.

Henning’s most recent television and radio appearances include Have I Got News For You, Would I Lie To You, Live At The Apollo, Question Time and 8 Out Of Cats Does Countdown.

Hot on his heels, Mark Watson will be in town on 5 March with This Can’t Be It.  We’ve all had some pondering to do about the fragility of life recently, but don’t worry, skinny national treasure Mark Watson has it covered.  At 41, he’s halfway through his days on earth, according to the life expectancy calculator app he paid £1.49 for. That life is in the best shape in living memory… but one problem remains, and it really is a huge one. 

Spiritual enquiry meets high-octane observational comedy as the ‘Taskmaster’ survivor, multi-award-winner and “No More Jockeys” cult leader attempts to cram a couple of years of pathological overthinking into an evening of stand-up. 

Completing the trio comedy billing, Chris McCausland will drop in on 20 May with his new tour, Speaky Blinder. 

As seen on Would I Lie to You?, Have I Got News for You, Live at the Apollo and 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown…

He’s blind. He’s a dad. He’s a husband. He’s third in command. He’ll speaky about all of that, plus loads more nonsense in between!
