More stand-up from some new and not-so-new faces on the comedy club circuit.
Our headliner this evening is acclaimed stand-up comic and accomplished TV writer Meryl O'Rourke, as she revels in her bitterness. A potty mouthed potty trainer, she has delighted comedy audiences, written some of the best gags on telly and even hosted pop concerts (the last one to 12,000 people!). She supported Frankie Boyle for part of his last tour, at his request.
Simple, but not stupid, innocent, but not naïve; Danny Pensive travels around the UK divulging his turbulent and skewed diaries on everything from goldfish, wooing poems, key cutting, and imaginary friends, getting lots of culture, and relating what he has seen and found.
Our opener this evening is Chris Kehoe, who has brought his surreal eye for detail and dry wit to pubs, clubs, and theatres across the North West after starting doing stand-up in 2014. Tackling weighty topics such as racism, climate change, and the relative sporting prowess of different amphibious reptiles, Chris offers a fresh view of an absurd world.
And finally our headliner for the evening is Tony Vino, who has been touring the comedy scene since early 2005 performing across the UK and internationally. He is best known for the way he seamlessly mixes well thought out observational humour with audience interaction and quick-witted responses. His life and interests are wide-ranging and so is his material, all performed in a warm, friendly and non-offensive style.
