Col debuted his new show GUBBINS at the Leicester Comedy Festival earlier this year and is bringing an abridged version to The Globe in April. 'Razor sharp, inventive and surprising all at once. Totally hilarious.' Nolton Comedy Corner. 'Witty and intelligent, hilarious and cheeky with proper laugh out loud gags.'

Saturday Shenanigans: Modou Ndiaye - 8pm
20th April 2019
Modou Ndiaye is a virtuoso kora player, vocalist, drummer and percussionist with a superb repertoire of rhythms fusing together traditional and modern beats. He plays a variety of West African instruments ranging from djembe, sabar, calabash and talking drum to his leading instrument –the 22 stringed kora (West African Harp). Modou is a member of the famous Cissokho family of Griot musicians and oral historians from the Cassamance region of Southern Senegal. A Griot or 'Jali' is a West African historian, advisor, arbitrator, praise singer, story-teller and entertainer. Essentially these musicians were walking history books, preserving their ancient stories and traditions through song. Their inherited traditions were passed down through the generations. His music is the perfect balance of beautiful yet powerful harmonies with the gentle yet lively tones of the kora, bass guitar, calabash, djembe and a variety of African percussion instruments, uniting traditional and modern sounds that leave you invigorated and inspired! Modou’s music has also been in demand from the global film industry. Commissioned by Warner Brothers in 2006, his djembe playing can be heard in the soundtrack of the blockbuster ‘Blood Diamond’. In 2008, at the request of Brian Elsley, Modou's kora playing featured on the teenage cult series ‘Skins’. Visit website

Saturday Shenanigans: Port Erin - 8pm
27th April 2019
Their musicality is magnetic with tightly wound dives and grooves. Cerys and Jacob’s rhythm section is a solid unit, Reuben drifts in-at times controlled and soulful but with moments of cornered fretting. A milieu of sonic textures are at play with echoes of jazz, coupled with mechanical Krautrock undertones. They are as punk as they are prog and as political as they are personal. Port Erin draw inspiration from the likes of XTC, David Bowie, Miles Davis, Syd Arthur, Talking Heads, Morphine and Tortoise. Visit website
