After the success of a fundraising comedy night The Surgery in Urmston decided that a regular comedy night was the order of the day and we were only too happy to help! Sunday 14th January sees the start of the new night and, with this line up, we would strongly advise getting your tickets in plenty of time!
Certainly no stranger to Urmston is your compere for the evening, Justin Moorhouse. This highly regarded comedian has taken several comedy shows to the Edinburgh Fringe and toured the UK. In February 2015 Justin performed to over 200 000 people in a 15 night stage version of Channel 4’s Phoenix Nights. The critically acclaimed show at the Manchester Arena raised £5 million for Comic Relief. A natural affability endears Justin to any audience and an arsenal of tightly written material firmly hedges the bet.
“Moorhouse charms the pants off the crowd” Sunday Times
With an amiable, confident stage presence and a well written set Danny McLoughlin delivers material with more than just an immediate pay-off line, preferring to take the joke one or two steps further. Confident enough to take a risk on stage he does so not to the detriment of the audience, keeping them laughing along or hanging on every word. Not many comics could get a laugh from the notion of retro chocolate bars but Danny manages a full, gag packed routine with ease.
Opening the show is Sheffield’s Tom Wrigglesworth. Tom is best known for his live storytelling shows and Sony Award winning BBC Radio comedy programmes which take a comical and emotional look at family relationships. Alongside his comedy work, he’s used his engineering background to become a natural and engaging presenter for BBC Television and The Discovery Channel.
