Comedy Night - Andre Vincent, Steve Gribbin & Rob Hitchmough   iCal entry for this event

This is the way to get over those post-Christmas blues!




After the success of the last comedy night with Phil Nichol, Old Ruts Rugby are hosting another event this coming January and this time we have two of the UK's top comedians joining us, once again compered by our very own Rob Hitchmough from Rugby's U11s. All Old Rutlishians are welcome to buy tickets.


Steve Gribbin is not only a comedy store regular but has probably performed there more than any other comedian! Steve’s original comedy songs combine razor sharp lyrics with tunes that put their foot in the door of your mind and refuse to leave. Firmly based in rock ‘n’ roll and refusing to pull no punches, these are not the ‘oh so witty’ ditties of penguin-suited plink plonk piano playing posh gobs. They are that rarity – comedy songs which are actually funny.


"A comic animated by proper passion....a trenchant treat - The Guardian."


"A highly refreshing and original comic with a gift for sharp observations and up-to-the-minute political asides... With more energy than a friendly Tasmanian devil , this affable and animated comedian tells jokes, plays the guitar and sings lyrics - The Scotsman" 


Andre Vincent's appearances have included a Saturday night show on Channel 4, nine sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, numerous radio shows, the presenter of two award-nominated television programmes, regular appearances on daytime panel games and even an appearance as himself in the children’s drama Byker Grove.


"... one of the best comedians in the business - The Times"


"Ferociously funny - The Sunday Times"


"An improvising comedy genius - The Guardian"


Compered by our very own Rob Hitchmough!


"...an infectious energy and a joy to watch - The Evening Standard"


"Very funny and imaginative - Time Out"


Tables of 8 or 10 can be reserved on request subject to availability. Please purchase the tickets first and then email me with the names of the 8/10 people you want on the table.



1. Comedy is a funny business.... If due to unforseen circumstances our acts are unable to make it we reserve the right to add other acts or extend the length of an attending acts' stage time. Whilst this is highly unlikely if this happens there will be no refunds.

2. If you can't attend you may sell your ticket on StubHub, or similar, for a ridiculously high amount as we cannot offer you a refund.

3. Only Members can buy tickets but they may bring guests who are non-members. However, if you can also persuade them to become a member for £30 we will love you forever.

3. Due to expected high-demand, payment for your tickets must be made within 14 days during which time you may receive email reminders. If you don't pay within 14 days then your tickets may be cancelled. As you're part of the Old Ruts family if you need more time to pay please, please get in touch rather than ignore the reminders.

4. Due to the nature of the material this is an Adults only event. Under 18s will not be admitted even if they have a ticket. If you are easily offended and of a sensitive disposition then this might not be the event for you. We hope you understand.

5. We guarantee you will laugh at least once, probably all night long.
