By Tuesday night you should’ve just recovered from the madness of the Long Good Friday and will be ready to be entertained once again.
Top of the bill is the award-winning Matt Blaize, a hard hitting young black stand up who trained as a classical actor before turning to comedy. Described by The Stage as Ã¢â‚¬Å“A new hard edge face on the scene who looks as if he can kick things into the next generationÃ¢â‚¬Â¦. a natural comic, this is a guy with the personality to match his potential.”
It’s good to a laydee on the bill, with Zoe Lyons , a relative newcomer to comedy but sheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s already earned a great reputation for energetic performances that take a sideways look at life through sharp writing and brilliant delivery.
The up and coming comic for this month is Danny Dawes. He’s not really a total newcomer as he has spent 8 years working on Australian TV and radio, with his own weekly national radio show London Calling, but since his return to the UK he has quickly built up a reputation as a great gagster with a winning way with audiences.
Cole Parker, who has worked with Ardal Hanlon, Ed Byrne, Craig Charles, Harry Hill and Sean Lock will be compering for the night. His style has been described as Ã¢â‚¬Å“a very dark blend of satire and observation, punctuated with gags and topical piss-takes”. We’re told to expect a cross between Jack Dee and Jimmy Carr, sounds mighty good to me.
