Stand and Deliver Comedy at The Jolly Anglers

Outdoor standup comedy

Doors 6pm to allow for a prompt 7pm start . Booking essential
 Following the success of our October and September shows we are back  at the Jolly Anglers for a summer season.

If you have never visited the Jolly Anglers it's the home of Reading's most famous beer garden.

Please note: This is an outdoor event. British weather is nuts so we recommend being preparing for everything! Multiple layers, waterproofs and sun cream may be wise.

If it rains during the event as long as it isn’t torrential, the show will continue. You will be sat in “bubbles” with appropriate spacing. Our full safety information is available here-


Paul Pirie began his stand-up career after giving up acting to pursue the funny man that lies within, quickly establishing himself on the Scottish comedy circuit as long ago as 2004. It should be pointed out that at the time he was living with his Gran, having given away the keys to his flat in a pub quiz. Since this time Paul’s career has encompassed TV, Film and Radio alongside his burgeoning skill as a stand-up with Paul emerging as one of the biggest Scottish acts on the UK comedy circuit.

"His clowning and quick fire gags will win him fans.. his physical mannerisms have a touch of Eric Morecambe"

Your HOST- Rhodders
Rhodders is a rare concoction of sarcasm and silliness. Leave logic at the door and allow this anarchic eccentric to show you the world from his peculiar perch. He is also the man behind Stand and Deliver comedy.
