    UTEA: INSTANT WIT : 8pm, Saturday 28th Sep

    From 20:00 to 22:00.     Add this to your calendar:        

    Instant Wit, the best in improvised comedy. Fresh and inventive, each show throws up new nuggets of hilarity crafted by a company of the highest calibre. It’s a pick-me-up tonic with unexpected twists and a dash of sauce.

    There’ll be sketches, songs and general silliness – and all of it based around audience suggestions. And if you’re too shy to shout anything out? Well don’t worry, you’ll have the chance to write things down in the interval. We’re the ones who’ll look daft, not you!

    So now’s the time to indulge yourself if you’ve always had a secret yearning to see something really bizarre on stage. How about an English folk song about a tortoise going on holiday? A sketch where Sainsbury’s opens a branch on the moon? Well why not? Your wish is our command. Good suggestions get flying packets of custard, the best a bottle of wine.

    Many people have seen improvised comedy on the t.v. – but remember, this is not recorded and edited, but totally live, making it trickier for the actors but more exciting for the audience. So, if you like your comedy fast-paced and with a slightly unusual edge, this is definitely for you.

    We’re proud to use some of the best in local talent, with our performers regularly appearing at the Tobacco Factory, Theatre Royal Bath and the Bristol Old Vic.

    Instant Wit – a bunch of very Unusual Suspects who are forever on the run from the Comedy Police.

    "These are conspicuously skilful performers - everyone is exhilarated on stage and off!" The Guardian

    “Instant Wit produce a show of surreal, mad-cap improvised hilarity that will leave you aching with laughter, chuckling with the stupidity of it all and, no doubt, wanting to go again.”

    UTEA: ALAN BURKE : 8pm, Saturday 12th Oct

    From 20:00 to 22:00.     Add this to your calendar:        

    Alan Burke is widely regarded as one of the finest ballad singers of his genera-tion and possesses an almost inexhaustible repertoire of traditional, contemporary and self-penned songs in both the English and Irish languages. Accompanied by his unique driving guitar style, Alan’s powerful presence and technique have featured on two highly acclaimed solo albums, On The Other Hand (1998) and Tip Of The Tongue (2000) alongside numerous recordings and collaborations with a number of bands and projects that have formed the core of a great life in music. A commanding stage presence, with a voice that is powerful, sensitive and crystal clear, Alan’s gigs are always truly memorable.


    He began his musical career as a drummer, before making his name in traditional music circles in the 1980's and 90's as lead singer, guitarist, and bodhrán player with the tremendous band Afterhours, with whom he made three albums - Afterhours, Hung Up And Dry, and Up To Here– and toured extensively worldwide. Since then Alan has appeared as a member of a number of bands including At First Light, Airla, Tulsk and Rambling Boys of Pleasure.
    Alan has been heavily involved in collaborative projects, and was the cornerstone of the four acclaimed annual Irish Sea Sessions concerts, tours and albums produced in Liverpool, Ireland and London. The Sea Sessions saw him combine with Declan O’Rourke, Damien Dempsey, Pauline Scanlon, Emily Portman and many more. In addition, Alan has worked both as a record producer and as an actor, including the play ‘This Is What We Sang’ that won Production of the Year at the First Irish Theatre Festival in New York 2010. He has also presented TV programmes in the Irish language for the BBC and TG4.


    Burke's strengths are his voice, a sweet mellifluous instrument, judiciously used and an understanding of his material. Alan Burke's rites of passage from band leader to first rate solo artist are complete. 'On The Other Hand' proves that. - Rock 'n Reel
