Summer Season 2017

What’s new? This season we have had to revert to the same start times for both Thursdays and Fridays to avoid confusion. So many people forgot to come at the earlier time we often delayed the films! Please always remember to check the times – this season the comedy, the films with 3 course meals, the wine tasting night and Trainspotting all start at different times – you have been warned! We also have a big problem with people booking and then either cancelling at the last moment or just not turning up. The worst example happened last week, when a fully booked film screened to 9 people! It’s difficult to know exactly what to do, and we are working on a full payment system which would retain the money, at least, from people who cancel late. Until that time please could you consider donating your ticket price to the Roxy if you cancel less than 24 hours before the film screens? Many thanks, Juliet

Sally Anne Hayward
Ummm…. I was talking about you not to you
Sally’s had a gut full of people making up food allergies – such a gut full that it’s irritated her bowel. At first she thought it could be wheat intolerance – but it turns out she’s just intolerant.
It was a liberating diagnosis, as she can now legitimately embrace her bitchier side: so watch out fussy eaters, over-sharers, and definitely that petty-minded busy-body of a neighbour who hasn’t returned a single one of her home produced surveys on local off street parking.
 ‘Exceptionally Funny’ The Independent

Danny McLoughlin
A show about one particular week in a young man’s life. A week full of so much excess, terrible decisions and even more terrible clothes, that it drove a teenage lad to already question how he was living his life.

Lou Conran
I Love Lou C
I’m in my dressing gown, eating boiled eggs, bear with…
(I’m in my dressing gown, eating boiled eggs, bear with…) Right, imagine visiting your favourite friend/aunty/spinster/woman of independent means. She’s a touch eccentric and always “alright”. Until last year, when it wasn’t alright and it all went a bit wrong. With lessons learned, a bit of self-discovery and some painful yet funny situations, this is a story about life and, ultimately, death. But in a positive, uplifting sort of way.
‘Naturally funny’ (Sarah Millican). ‘Masterful at owning a room’ (FringeReview.co.uk). As seen on BBC, ITV & Channel 4.

Nick Doody
Interesting Times
They say comedy is tragedy plus time. Unfortunately, this shit is happening now.
Nick Doody has been performing comedy since the 90s when, as a student, he got off to a pretty good start by supporting the legendary Bill Hicks, at Bill’s request. A little later, Nick was a finalist in Channel 4’s So You Think You’re Funny? competition.
Since then he has performed all over the world: Ireland, France, Spain, Switzerland, Germany, The Netherlands, Dubai, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Hong Kong, Thailand, Malaysia, Estonia… You get the idea. He was the first British comedian to perform in Croatia.
Nick has appeared on various radio and TV shows (listed below), and is also much in demand as a writer. He has penned jokes for Joan Rivers, Lenny Henry, Dame Edna Everage and an uncomfortable number of Mock The Week regulars. He was also the creator and head writer of Bigipedia, a critically acclaimed Radio 4 show that broadcast in 2009 and 2011.

In 2006, Nick performed his first solo Edinburgh Festival show, Before He Kills Again. The show received rave reviews and sold out for the whole festival, leading to a run at the Soho Theatre. Since then, Nick has written and performed another six solo hours of stand-up, including the most honest title ever to appear on a poster, Look At This Massive Picture Of My Face.
