Howl at the Pavilion

Howl at the Pavilion

One final night of pro comedy before a summer break. Make sure you don't miss this one! Otherwise you'll have to wait til late September for a unique night of laughter for just £10.

IGNACIO LOPEZ

Spain's best export, Ignacio Lopez (more than 10 million online views) slams Spanish and British culture in a relentlessly funny show about invasions, history and tapas. An armada of sarcasm, silliness and songs! If you saw Ignacio's brilliant opening set in our first Penarth Howl in March, he'll be doing completely different (hilarious) material for us before heading to the Edinburgh Fringe for August!

"Unique and hilarious" - Buzz Magazine
"Had the crowd roaring" - Get Reading
"Charismatic with waspish charm, coaxing and smart!" Chortle
"Had the best line of the night" - Guardian
"Filled the room with laughter. Relevant and perceptive. An act not to be missed" - BroadwayBaby

MARTIN PILGRIM

Martin's laidback storytelling and killer punchlines have won him support slots with Stewart Lee, Russell Howard and Josh Widdicombe. He has been performing stand up since 2009, although thankfully very little evidence exists of his pre-2012 efforts. In his comedy, he shies away from obvious jokes and easy laughs, and instead prefers to dissect his subject matter in clinical detail, taking situations to their logical conclusion and often far beyond. He's taking his third full show to the Edinburgh Fringe this year in which he tries really hard to be less miserable.

"Adept and funny"- The Guardian
"A delight" - Alternative Comedy Cabaret.
"Fantastic storytelling" - Bristol Punchline

LOUISE LEIGH

"One of the most original and promising new acts to come out of the South West Comedy scene in the last two years” (Will Hodgson), Louise Leigh is a bona fide numpty dressed as a middle aged woman from Bristol. She's brutally honest about parenting, the midlife "sniping and logistics" phase of marriage and shaving your legs like you're in an advert.

"Great performance, great confidence, great jokes" -Gary Delaney
"Charming, funny and a natural rapport with the audience" -John Hegley

LORNA PRICHARD (MC)

BBC Sesh star Lorna was a TV news presenter before turning to stand up. Since swapping headlines for punchlines, she has performed at Edinburgh and Leicester Comedy Festivals, won a comedy award in San Francisco and hosted many events - from comedy nights, festivals and car rallies to a cat carnival!

"A warm and natural MC who puts the audience at ease." – Nick Page

"A really good comedian." – Lloyd Langford

Age Restrictions: 18+

An audience with Victoria Hislop

An audience with Victoria Hislop

Join us for an audience with bestselling author, Victoria Hislop, who will be sharing her new book with us.

'Those Who Are Loved' is a powerful new novel which sheds light on the complexity and trauma of Greece’s past and weaves it into the epic tale of an ordinary woman compelled to live an extraordinary life.

Athens 1941. After decades of political uncertainty, Greece is polarised between Right- and Left-wing views when the Germans invade. Fifteen-year-old Themis comes from a family divided by these political differences. The Nazi occupation deepens the fault-lines between those she loves just as it reduces Greece to destitution. She watches friends die in the ensuing famine and is moved to commit acts of resistance. In the civil war that follows the end of the occupation, Themis joins the Communist army, where she experiences the extremes of love and hatred and the paradoxes presented by a war in which Greek fights Greek.

Eventually imprisoned on the infamous islands of exile, Makronisos and then Trikeri, Themis encounters another prisoner whose life will entwine with her own in ways neither can foresee. And finds she must weigh her principles against her desire to escape and live. As she looks back on her life, Themis realises how tightly the personal and political can become entangled. While some wounds heal, others deepen.

This event is part of Penarth Literature Festival.
