Every last Tuesday of the month in the Theater Casino Zug. Come and laugh along with the Zug Expat Community at that unique sense of English humour. And of course it wouldn’t be the same without fish and chips and British beer too.

Thank you for being such a loyal audience for our English Stand-up Comedy in over 10 years now. Even if you’ve just arrived in Zug, while in the Theater Casino Zug you can consider yourself a local or at least get in touch with some real Swiss. Have a good laugh together and enjoy the local curiosity about British humour.

The fish and chips are produced locally but à la British, while the beer and the comedians are the freshest, finest imports that can be mustered. Most important is the audience: a true melting-pot of nations worldwide. This is Zug - welcome home!

Her solo comedy special also aired in Canada's popular Stand-up show "Comedy Now" and she has been named in the Top 10 Comedians 3 years running by NOW Magazine in Canada.

​"Like a gift from the comedy gods" - The Herald
​"Gloriously dark and painfully funny" - The Scotsman
​"An absolute powerhouse performance on stage. Like the fireworks at the end of the Festival she's tightly timed, mercilessly efficient and very, very loud" - The Skinny

He should be "made the mayor of a small village" - SHANGHAI CITY WEEKEND
He is also "bloody funny" - TIME OUT
Finally "Pierre Hollins is a hugely likeable cheeky chappie and unlikely rock god who whipped the crowd into a state of near euphoria" - THE LATEST
