There’s some fantastic comedy coming up at Taunton Brewhouse in the next two months – so you can laugh away those winter blues.

On 28 Jan at 7.30pm Shaparak Khorsandi relives the 90s in a trip down memory lane, where she found herself flying about London with hope in her heart, a tenner in her pocket and spare knickers in hear handbag. Shaparak discovered at the age of 10 she could make people cry with laughter… and her comedy career was born! Seen on the Graham Norton Show, Friday Night with Jonathan Ross and I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here (Suitable for 14+)

Rated as a 5* comedy act by The Times, Telegraph and Independent, Mark Watson is heading to the Brewhouse on 18 Feb at 7.30pm and will attempt to cram a year of pathological over thinking into an hour’ s stand-up. High observational comedy meets spiritual enquiry, as Watson realises at 40 that he is halfway through his life… (Suitable for 14+)

On 26 Feb at 7.30pm The Make-Em-Ups: Bumper Blyton roll into town in a riotous Enid Blyton parody for grown-ups. With an award-winning cast from stage and screen including The Comedy Store and Doctor Who, the show is a comedy, music and song extravaganza, chock full of innuendo with plenty of puns. (Suitable for 12 +)

To book/for further information go to or ring the Box Office on 01823 283244 10am – 4pm Monday to Friday.

Meanwhile over the road, Somerset County Cricket Club are hosting An Evening With Rory Bremner at the Cooper Associates County Ground on Thursday March 3rd.

The evening will begin with welcome drinks in the Long Room at 6:30pm followed by an outstanding three-course dinner in the County Room.
During the dinner, the multi-talented comedian, impersonator and satirist will be entertaining those present with his award-winning brand of humour.
As well as being the recipient of two BAFTAs, two British Comedy Awards and three Royal Television Society Awards, Rory is also a respected columnist and writer. He even had a top 20 hit in 1985 as part of The Commentators with the cricket-themed song “N-N-Nineteen Not Out.”
