Virus permitting, we’re enormously excited to be back at Storey’s Field on October 9th.
To allow for appropriate social distancing, numbers will be strictly limited to between 50 and 60 depending on bubble sizes.
There will be one show, starting at 7.30pm and finishing at 10.00pm, to abide by the curfew rules.
Please bear with us as we try and find our way through a very difficult situation.
Roger Monkhouse… is one of the most original and distinctive acts on the comedy scene. A consummate stand-up who employs a deadly combination of charm and menace to exert a masterful control over any audience. A highly original and quirky performer, Roger’s trademark stage-prowling style and curious, inimitable manner have established him as one of the hottest names on the comedy circuit.
Distinguished as a comic by his eloquence and keen eye for a fine phrase, Roger’s easy observational style is spiked by the signal flares of an accomplished gag writer. “His laconic delivery shields an engaging persona and an enquiring mind” The Guardian.
Alasdair Beckett-King… is a legendary comedian, in that there is little historical evidence that he exists. But he does exist. Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2017, Alasdair has featured on BBC radio as a comedian and sketch writer, and performed stand-up across the UK, at Glastonbury, Citadel Fest, the Udderbelly Southbank and at the Edinburgh Fringe.
He knows quite a lot about 19th century magicians. Tourists often ask to have their photo taken with him, presumably impressed by this.”Delicious writing and exceptional observations” Chortle.
Kate McCabe…has been gigging on this side of the Atlantic for several years after starting her comedy career in NYC. She also performs with improv troupe ComedySportz Manchester and regularly appears on Fab Radio’s THE GAY AGENDA and on Gaydio’s THE EXCHANGE. When she’s not working, she enjoys comic books, Playstation, snacking, and nap-time.
Our MC is Jonathan Elston…. At just 28 years of age, Jonathan is a fresh, punchy, gag-driven comic who combines sharp joke writing and quirky observations with a youthful likeability that charms his audience and endears him to any room.�A young comic with incredible talent and natural warmth� The Guardian.
