    Fabulous night- hilarious stand ups
    Fantastic night at the Brasshaus in Bournemouth watching Zoe Lyon’s. Laughed til I cried. The support acts were both hilarious too as was the host Adrienne. Great venue! Part of the Bournemouth comedy week. If you get the chance to see any stand ups this company hosts go!! You will not be disappointed
    Thank you so much for your fabulous review. It really means a lot. See you at another show soon. Best wishes Adrienne

    Brilliant evening
    I booked Coastal Comedy June tickets for my partner since I felt like we needed an evening of laughter and joy. Saturday night did not disappoint!! Adrienne was a superb host, selecting a few guests to chat to and she was hilarious. She then introduced three very funny comedians who were all different, but great. Big shout out to the last guy who stood in for the sick headline act. He was brilliant and brought the house down (as they say). Really good value evening too. Love the Lighthouse even more after this evening. Thanks for the laugh.
    Thank you so much for the lovely review. It really means a lot. We look forward to seeing you at another show soon.

This was the third time we have been to Coastal Comedy in Bournemouth. We have enjoyed it every time we have been. Two of the three acts were really funny as was the host.
The first act on I can only describe as car crash. A whole booth of people got up and walked out before the end of his set. I actually thought that was very rude and felt for the lad but he wasn’t funny and he was endorsing the use of heroin so maybe these people were offended.
The two acts that followed were both great so they more than made up for the bad start. We will definitely go again in the future.

Thank you so much for your 5 star review. We really appreciate it. It was Christmas party season and the people that left wanted to chat and weren’t our usual comedy audience so decided to go elsewhere…what a relief 😂 Comedy is subjective and there’s some hits and some misses and there was a bit of a blip for the first act initially, however as it’s live this can happen. The act was intending to be ironic and feedback has been given. We are thrilled that you will be returning and enjoyed the rest of the show. Thank you 🙏

What a night at the Coastal Comedy curated Bournemouth Comedy festival! Paul Tonkinson opened with a shall we say family inspired set...so familiar to a lot of us! Next was Jake Lambert. Although I've seen Jake before his fast paced whitty, and occasionally risque style went down well, and set up the last act ...it's hard to say Headliner, as all are headliners in the truest sense.... Troy Hawke, yes he, the one and only gentleman from the Professional Greeters Guild. Troy was a great storyteller with fantastic audience engagement, very funny! Coastal comedy have nights all over the area from Ringwood, and Paole to Bournemouth. The Bournemouth comedy festival is on all weekend and has something for everyone even kids. Revolution is a great new venue for Coastal comedy and pints of Amstel were £2.50...bargain. credit also goes to Bournemouth BID who assisted and putting this particular night on. Well done everyone.

A wonderful evening. Great acts with a brill compare. We've been to a few Coastal Comedy shows in different venues and always guaranteed a fantastic night and also such good value for money too. Only downside is how much my face aches afterwards from all the laughing. Highly recommended!

The night was incredible and unexpectedly good for a local comedy night. Adrienne Cole was the most amazing host with a wicked, keen and sharp sense of humour and plenty of energy for the whole night. Plastic Jeezus (admittedly, they're one of my favourite acts anyway) kicked the night off with amazing wit in their lyrics and performance and definitely left the audience wanting more. Fortunately for us, there was Martin Wratten to keep the high going. His tales of Eastbourne and of his time as an ice cream vendor had the audience right where he wanted them and roaring with laughter.

As if we already hadn't had more than our money worth, there was still one act to go. Nathan Caton hit the stage and absolutely owned the place. Thanks Nathan.i will never be able to look at my wedding photos without laughing again, nor will I ever see aTesco value cake without pricing it at £995 and thinking of all the joy it could bring to a wedding. I smiled and laughed so much, my cheeks hurt all the way home (they're still a little sore this morning. Just like your legs after run (or at least if I ever went for a run))

Adrianne is a hilarious compere and does a great job warming up the audience, sometimes she is funnier than the acts! We've been to three nights this season and each night we had a great time. Great little venue inside the Lighthouse, recommend!

3 acts of which the first was very unfunny, in fact my cat is much more amusing. Katie Price was next and watching paint drying would have been more entertaining. Simply she’s in the wrong job. Slight recovery by the headline act, first laughs of the evening but for £18 each and 90 minutes of uncomfortable seating while the first acts droned on you could have much more fun with your money. Spend it on anything rather than this. We won’t be back again.

It’s a shame you didn’t enjoy the show, comedy as one of the arts is subjective. We don’t allow heckling and there certainly wasn’t any heckling at this show, which many enjoyed, so we are unsure if you have the right one.
