This is a joint venture between Marjon and Comical Entertainment. Andrew Smallridge and James Maunder set up Comical Entertainment having found that few live comedy shows were available locally in Plymouth and across the South West. They now bring top comics to Plymouth, Launceston and Paignton in pursuit of their mission to become ‘The home of comedy in the South West’.

Tickets are priced very competitively and student concessions will be available to Marjon students for some shows.

Tickets can be booked on Comical Entertainment’s website where comedy fans can subscribe to a newsletter offering exclusive deals and early bird access to the hottest tickets.

The Quad Theatre will host a range of touring comedians, ‘audience with’ shows, theatrical productions and exhibitions. It is also home to Marjon’s Acting and Musical Theatre students, who rehearse and perform there.

Sarah McAdam, Director of the School of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, said: “The Marjon Arts Centre has already seen some fantastic productions, gigs and exhibitions over the last few years and we're really excited about being a cultural hub for our students and the local community.”

Andrew Smallridge, Director at Comical Entertainment, said: “We are glad to have found a new home for our comedy and spoken word shows. We believe our partnership with The Quad Theatre at Plymouth Marjon University will enable Comical Entertainment to build on our success and go from strength to strength.”
