Ha Ha Hassocks Comedy Summer Special – Sunday 28 August

This year’s biggest comedy event (in Hassocks at least) is rapidly approaching.  And what a way to round off the holidays it is too. With less than 4 weeks to go we still can’t 100% confirm our headliner – but we can say if he doesn’t make it Stephen will be pulling ALL the stops out, calling in BIG favours to write the HUGEST cheque to get someone almost as awesome. There are still some tickets left at £17.50, or two tickets with a fine bottle of wine from Southdowns Cellars for £41 available from the Purple Carrot, Marchants Estate agents and online

– HA HA Hassocks Holiday Special @ Adastra Hall – Sunday 28 August doors from 6.30pm

  • Fully Licenced Bar until 10pm

Back to where it all started just one year ago we aim to offer even more mirth and full on chortling for the good denizens of Hassocks and surrounding suburbs (Burgess Hill, Haywards Heath….Brighton) with three top draw comedians.

Make a proper evening of it? Keymer & Hassocks Sports & Social Club (The Club for ease of ref) will be providing BBQ’d fare from 5pm at a very reasonable price, and we will be starting on the Pimms and Gin from 6ish – obviously it will be a beautiful summers evening so a chance to sit out and enjoy what Adastra Park has to offer – the thwack of leather on willow perhaps ? – before the main event as our first act hits the stage at 8pm

OUR MC Stephen Grant will warmly welcome…. a warmly, nay hotly, anticipated line-up.

2 cracking Canadians Sean Collins & Dana Alexander and a top-notch special guest – due back from filming in Asia just a couple of days before…. (ummm I wonder who that might be….

Stephen Grant – Winner of two Chortle Awards. Starred in ‘Stand up’ for Comedy Central. International headliner – Aus, NZ, India etc. Regular compare at Brighton Komedia. 7 Edinburgh shows. Sold out show at Theatre Royal in Brighton. DJ for Radio Sussex & Regular radio guest on Heart FM will be your compere for the evening.

Sean Collins –  Canadian Sean has 25 years experience in stand up comedy, with initial success leading to ‘Best Male Stand Up’ nominations at the Canadian Comedy Awards, a Just For Laughs Gala set at Montreal and his own hour long special on Canadian television. Since moving to the UK, Sean has quickly established himself as a respected comedian. His appearance on Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow on BBC 1 proved a bombastic gig for Sean, affording him the opportunity to perform at The Real Variety Showcase.

Dana Alexander – is currently one of Britain and Canada’s hottest emerging young comedians – It was not long before she began working in television on BBC programs like Russell Howard’s Good News. Edinburgh Comedy Fest in 2012 and featured on The Culture Show in 2013 for BBC 2. Refreshing and fearless her comedic style has been described as ‘smart, irreverent and revolutionary’.

And the other guy??? many (too many) tv appearances, his own show, currently making a second series in Sri Lanka and India…he needs no introduction, he just needs to get on that plane.
