After debuting his first tour “Wonders of the Cornish Universe” early in 2012, we are delighted to welcome Kernow King’s hit new show “Splann!” back to The Poly in 2014.
Splann, splendid in Cornish, takes a wry look at one or two wonderful things in Cornwall, but the show also takes a bigger look at the things in Cornwall that drives us nuts. There are a few obvious things that immediately spring to mind, but there are also a few less obvious things that will no doubt be niggling under your skin.
With a look at social media, tractors, businesses and so much more, the new show is a hoot.
Award-winning comedian Jo Caulfield is back with a hilarious new show.
Jo’s always wondered why anger is seen as such a bad thing. When life presents such irritations as vacuous celebrities, endless TV quiz shows, arrogant shop-assistants, emotionally ‘challenged’ men, drunken girlfriends who always pick the wrong partner, and a husband who continually quotes The Godfather, surely having a good rant – and a good laugh – is the only sensible reaction?
Enjoy your anger.
Nominated as Funniest Woman (LAFTA Awards) and Best Female Stand-Up (Chortle Awards), Jo is “feisty, funny and wonderfully bitchy” (Observer), with a “cut-throat wit and a razor-sharp tongue” (Times)
Star of Radio 4’s hugely popular “Jo Caulfield’s Speakeasy”, and seen on Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, Mock The Week, Have I Got News For You, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, The Apprentice: You’re Fired and BBC1’s The Politics Show, this is a fantastic night out, for men and women alike.
Fresh from wowing audiences at the 2013 Edinburgh Fringe, comedy’s fastest rising star Seann Walsh returns to the Poly with an all-new highly anticipated live show to show the world that he is the Lie-In King.
Star of Channel 4’s ‘Stand Up For The Week’, BBC1’s ‘Live At The Apollo’ and ‘Michael McIntryre’s Comedy Roadshow’, and Dave’s ‘Argumental’, Seann is a charming and charismatic natural born observational storyteller, and one of the most frighteningly precocious talents to emerge from the UK comedy circuit in years.
Seann’s other recent TV appearances include: Channel 4’s Comedy Gala Live At The 02 2012/13, Never Mind The Buzzcocks (BBC2), Celebrity Juice (ITV2), Mock The Week (BBC2), 8 Out Of 10 Cats (Channel 4) and Alan Carr: Chatty Man (Channel4)
Within two years of his first comedy performance, Seann was the winner of the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year. Shortly after other accolades included; Chortle Best Breakthrough Act Nominee 2010 and Chortle Best Compere Nominee 2011.
Seann Walsh currently stars in his very own brand new television series ‘Seann Walsh World’ on Comedy Central. Airing on Tuesday nights at 9pm for 13 episodes, the show mixes stand-up comedy with viral internet video clips as Seann delves in to his life as a young, single 26 year old comedian. Later this year, Seann will also star in Comedy Central’s new original sitcom, ‘Big Bad World’.

“Set your alarms for this show and miss it at your peril” – Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke, Evening standard
