Alsager Civic’s very first comedy nights in 2017 were a roaring success and sold out in advance. As Saturday 17th March is St Patrick’s Day we return with two of Ireland’s funniest, a familiar face from the telly and an award winning compere!
Now best known as star as William Shakespeare’s manservant Bottom in Ben Elton’s sitcom Upstart Crow, Gawsworth born Rob Rouse has been a firm favourite on the UK and international comedy circuit’s for many a year. A natural performer, Rob has many voices in his head and, when unleashed, his shows become more like a hysterically funny play than one man telling very funny tales. TV includes 8 Out Of 10 Cats, Spoons, The Friday Night Project, Grown-Ups and Comedy Shuffle with Rob Rouse.

Described by none other than Sarah Millican as ‘a very funny man’, Dubliner Caimh McDonnell has firmly established himself as the white-haired Irishman whose name nobody can pronounce. Try ‘Kweeve’ though and all will be well. Caimh recently helped provide the funny on both series of ‘The Sarah Millican Television Programme’ and the SKY panel show ‘A League of Their Own’. When not doing all of the above, Caimh is proud to be ‘The Voice of London Irish’ and acts as the rugby team’s announcer in the Madjeski stadium.
“Outstanding” Daily Telegraph “A very funny man” Sarah Millican
Despite being a relative newcomer Catherine Bohart has seen a rapid rise through the ranks of UK and Irish comedy. In 2016, she was a finalist in both the BBC New Comedy Awards and Funny Women, drawing praise in the final of the former for having “a distinctive voice and a story you’d like to hear” (Chortle) and in the latter for being “pretty much the perfect comedy package” (Beyond The Joke). Her burgeoning broadcasting career has already seen her write material for BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show, The News Quiz, Newsjack and Frankie Boyle’s New World Order.
Dan Nightingale worked his way through university as the sound man at a comedy club but being actually on the stage looked like so much more fun.. Fortunately, Dan turned out to be a natural performer and a brilliant compere. Dan mixes cutting observation and raucous gags with high energy audience work and a natural playfulness that engages any crowd. Original, creative and totally unpredictable.
Dan was voted ‘Best MC’ in the 2015 UK Comedy Awards by fellow comedians, bookers and promoters
