Liverpool’s Epstein Theatre welcomes Spring with a glorious selection of stand-up comedy, theatre entertainment, drama, dance and live music throughout March. Highlights include an evening with comedy legends Cannon and Ball, the return of brilliant comedy stand-up from Alexei Sayle, the first ever tour by Blackpool’s legendary Funny Girls and incredible recreations of classic comedies Dads Army and The Navy Lark.

There’s a wealth of big comedy names at The Epstein this month. On Thu 5 Mar we present Josie Long: Tender, where the three-time Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee shares her experience of new motherhood. On Fri 6 Mar Phil Wang discusses morality and the modern sense of self in Philly Philly Wang Wang and from Tue 10 – Sat 14 Mar alternative comedy legend Alexei Sayle presents his first stand-up tour in 7 years.

On Sun 15 Mar join Irish Annie’s on a fabulous journey of Irish music and laughter set in her pub, with all the well known and loved Irish songs with le band Shenanigans. Arabella Weir presents the mother of all confessional shows, Does My Mum Loom Big In This? on Sun 22 Mar, while we welcome Dom Joly’s Holiday Snaps: Travel and Comedy in the Danger Zone on Wed 25 Mar, where the creator of Trigger Happy TV shares his exploits as a globe-trotting seeker of dangerous travel spots, from North Korea to Chernobyl.

For classic comedy lovers, The Navy Lark sails in on Mon 16 Mar with three actors and a microphone recreating three episodes of the classic radio comedy. On Tue 24 Mar, the highly acclaimed Dad’s Army Radio Show recreates the nation’s favourite comedy, including the voices of over 25 characters and lots of sound effects, using the skills of just two actors and microphones! Comedy legends Cannon and Ball bring their magical, unique brand of humour to The Epstein on Thu 26 March, recreating their most famous routines and hosting an audience Q&A and we round out the month of laughter cabaret style on Sat 28 Mar, as larger than life La Voix: The UK’s Funniest Red Head dazzles audiences with her incredible voice, natural wit and hilarious diva impersonations – from Cher to Tina Turner, Shirley Bassey to Liza Minnelli.

There’s a treat for dance fans on Tue 17 Mar when Ballet Theatre UK presents one of the greatest ballets of all time, the tragically romantic tale of Giselle – a young girl deceived in love, who is left in judgement of the man who betrayed her. This haunting classic is performed by a full Corps de Ballet of 24 international dancers.

There’s plenty of theatre entertainment too. Blackpool’s legendary Funny Girls hit The Epstein as part of their first ever UK tour on Sat 7 Mar, with a show that sold out so fast they’re returning on Sun 24 May. For Drama Lovers, on Wed 18 Mar Arrows & Traps Theatre present The Strange Case of Jekyll & Hyde, a critically acclaimed modern twist to Robert Louis Stevenson’s iconic gothic classic, set in the halls of American power. On Thu 19 Mar Play With Fire Productions presents Some Voices by Joe Penhall, writer of hit Netflix series Mindhunter. The play tells the story of a young man with schizophrenia trying to re-assimilate following a stint in a psychiatric hospital.

There’s plenty of music throughout the month too.
