Doors 8pm Show 8.30pm £12/£10 advance Very strong language throughout. Fully seated. Acts subject to change.
Justin Moorhouse is a Manchester born and bred comedian, presenter and actor. Justin’s quick fire stand up makes him a natural choice for compering and is much in demand for corporate work. A natural affability endears Justin to any audience and an arsenal of tightly written material firmly hedges the bet. Justin released his first DVD ‘Live In Salford’ in November 2015. Filmed beofre a packed house at The Lowry Theatre, Salford Quays it’s available online now at Amazon.
“Easily my favourite comedian” Jimmy Carr “Moorhouse charms the pants off the crowd” Sunday Times
Wayne Deakin headlines all the big Australian clubs and tours across North America but is based in London (“It’s just simple economics. Britain’s where they’ll spend every red cent they’ve got on booze and entertainment.” ) His amiable, laconic style works to draw you in but there’s plenty of biting social commentary here too, so Wayne will have you both laughing and thinking. Wayne is currently campaigning to have Prince Phillip made Prime Minister
“My jaw hurts from laughing, that was funny!” Beat
Andre Vincent was born May 1964 in Woolworth’s Department Store Penge, and has not stopped appearing in the most unusual of places since. A new chapter opened in his life after visiting an Orlando comedy club and deciding to give it a go. The pinnacle of this journey was opening for Bob Hope in Columbus, Ohio in 1992. With his head swelling and his tongue tripping one-liners, he returned home to conquer the comedy circuit of the U.K., and in no time at all established himself as one of the top stand-ups in the country today.
“An improvising comedy genius” The Guardian “Ferociously funny” Sunday Times
If you ever see Eleanor Tiernan gazing wistfully at skyscrapers and bridges then that’s because she quit a career in civil engineering so she could tell jokes to strangers. This proved to be a very prudent move indeed as within a year Eleanor was popping up on Ireland’s main TV channel, RTE as well as BBC’s One Night Stand with her thought provoking and occasionally surreal brand of stand up all delivered completely dead pan.
The usual run of circuit and festival appearances followed covering everywhere from Galstonbury to a biker’s bar in the Phillipines. Tour support work has included Stewart Lee, Reginald D. Hunter and her better known cousin Tommy. Expect to see a lot more of Eleanor as she is now based in London where she makes social faux pas and loses things on public transport.
“The fastest-rising comedy talent in the country” Irish Times
