Traditionally, Comedy at the Cottage provides a showcase for up and coming acts, but Perrier Award winners, TV personalities and top circuit comics have all made an appearance at the Redhill event over the years too.


Tim Vine previewed his new material at the Cottage; Jim Tavare, who starred in Harry Potter and is rumoured to be Prince Charles favourite comedian, has entertained;Carly Smallman's first ever gig was at the Home Cottage pub the event calls homeand shelater impressed Rob Brydon so much that her first television appearance was on his BBC show!


The intimate club was formed in 2006 by Redhill based comedienne Sajeela Kershi who continues to MC each month. The night's popularity and success owes itself to the friendly and cosy setting of the function room at the rear of the pub. An ever welcoming audience of around 50 get to experience the comedians performing close enough that it feels like they are live in your lounge.


In each three hour show, there are five support acts and one headliner.There is no heckling or booing acts off stage. Its a welcoming evening where you can enjoy a few drinks and some great entertainment.


Septembers audience had the honour of seeing the fantastic Boy with Tape on His Face perform his superb mime act. A worthy nominee for the Fosters Newcomer Award 2010 and the must see act of 2010s Edinburgh Comedy Festival, saw the audience in raptures for the duration of his 30 minute interactive set. This guy is set to sell out arenas next year.


The rest of the line up didnt disappoint either. First on was Andy Davies who shared his experiences of online dating and Stag Dos in Newcastle.


Christian Schulte-Loh, the incredibly tall German comedian amused with his comparisons of Germans and the English.


Duncan Hart managed to make a near death experience funny, and it was a true story!


Danny Hurst gave us a preview of his very funny Christmas parody, which is sure to see Simon Cowells X Factor winner knocked off the number one slot in Duncans dreams.


Finally Katerina Varana barely stopped for breath in her 10 minute exuberant tale of modern dating disasters.



  • The next Comedy at the Cottage event is on Friday October 29with Hal Cruttenden, who has appeared on the Royal Variety Show. All profits from the evening are given to charity. Tickets cost 10 and can be purchased from the Home Cottage pub in advance on01737 762771.
