Welsh Wave Presents Wales’ Comedy Stars of Tomorrow at the Torch Theatre
Tickets are selling like hot cakes for Little Wander’s comedy show New Welsh Wave here at the Torch Theatre this March. Since founding the Machynlleth comedy festival in 2010 Little Wander has gone on to work with the biggest names in stand up.
The company now tours the likes of James Acaster, Bridget Christie, Nish Kumar, Jen Brister, Kiri Pritchard-McLean. They have created the Aberystwyth comedy festival, continue to curate The Last Laugh Stage at Green Man and have produced several tv and radio projects for the BBC.
Now working in conjunction with Creative Wales, the New Welsh Wave tour will be making 15 stops across the country bringing you the freshest voices in Welsh comedy alongside some of the nation’s favourite comics and will visit the Torch Theatre on Saturday 16 March. Each date will showcase four acts with one of regular hosts Kiri Pritchard-McLean, Robin Morgan and Leroy Brito at the helm.
New Welsh Wave at the Torch, hosted by Robin Morgan, will welcome Siân Docksey, Anna Thomas, Bella Humphries and Matt Rees.
Robin, a Welsh stand-up comedian, writer and actor, has appeared on Mock The Week (BBC Two), The News Quiz, The Now Show (BBC Radio 4) and co-created Ellie Taylor’s Safe Space (BBC Radio 4).
Following an Edinburgh Fringe Festival spent making pole dancing funny to rave reviews (★★★★★ “Honestly breathtaking” - The Wee Review), Siân Docksey returns to her unique brand of cheerfully weird stand-up with political zing.
Originally hailing from Burry Port in south Wales, Anna won the BBC New Comedy Award in 2021 and was nominated for Channel 4’s inaugural Sean Lock Award last year. Since then, she’s supported the likes of Joe Lycett, Kiri Pritchard-McLean, Hal Cruttenden, Lauren Pattison, and Max Fosh.
Bella is a comedian, actor and dungaree wearer. Come watch her “ooze charm in a cheeky sort of way” as she recounts tales of moving to Wales and asking the age old question…who exactly am I? As heard on BBC Radio Wales and BBC Sounds.
Award-winning Welsh comedian Matt Rees has generated a huge buzz on the stand-up comedy circuit over the past few years. With his unique brand of well-crafted jokes and acerbic delivery, he has earned high praise from audiences and critics alike.
Get ready for a snapshot of Wales’ emerging talent as they share the stage with household names in a night that promises laughs from the left-field all personally picked by Little Wander.
The New Welsh Wave will appear on the Torch Theatre stage on Saturday 16 March at 7.30pm. Suitable for ages 16+. Ticket prices: £14. For tickets phone the Box Office on 01646 695267 or click here.
