Want to see comedian Simon Caine try out jokes ahead of his 2nd solo hour? Boy are you in luck.

Get a ticket now, it's the perfect gift for Christmas*

*It's a gift. And it's the thought that counts, so get it for someone you love. Unless you hate my comedy. Then get it for an enemy.

About the show

My life is a constant search for emotional and electrical outlets. If you can relate, this is the show for you.

Simon Caine brings his 2nd hour show as a work-in-progress to Leicester. The show doesn't massively have a theme, which in itself is the theme.

About the performer

Simon Caine has been performing stand up for over 5 years. He’s done over 700 gigs and taken part in 2 Edinburgh Fringe shows. This will be his second solo show.
