Watford Observer: Steve Gribbin headlines at Guffaw Comedy Club

3. Shunted Again

Veteran train traveller and stand-up comedian Steve Gribbin rails against the current state of Britain’s Railway system. Using his very worst journeys as examples, Steve takes us on a (de)tour of cancellations, delays and overcrowding that’s enough to drive you to drive. But he doesn’t stop there; Steve shunts back into history to acknowledge the immense social change that trains have brought. The show will be a mixture of stand-up, songs and train announcements, as Steve examines all aspects of the railways.

The Old Town Hall, High Street, Old Town, Hemel Hempstead, Saturday, June 10, 8pm. Details: 01442 228091

4. Pam Ann

Pam – the alter-ego of Australian comedian-writer-producer Caroline Reid – has developed cult-status with her masterful portrayal of a brash hot mess of an Australian hostess. She herself says as the airports got bigger, so did her ego – and her mouth filthier. Pam’s barbed wit has seen her fly many a risky route and negotiate even the most politically incorrect flight path, with her blisteringly funny take on the world of airlines and aircrew. 

The Alban Arena, Civic Centre, St Albans, Saturday, June 10, 8pm. Details: 01727 844488
