January Laughs!

Where: Grainstore Brewery, Oakham
When: Thursday January 25th, Doors 6.15pm
Price: £10.00

Funhouse Comedy Club returns to the Grainstore Brewery, Oakham on Thursday January 25th for another great night of laughter.

Topping the bill will be the wonderful Christian Reilly. At the age of 15, Christian Reilly joined a band to get laid. The Salvation Army had different ideas…

As former integral part of the Perrier award-winning show Otis Lee Crenshaw and the Black Liars, with comic/songster Rich Hall, Christian’s career has taken him around the world three times. On his way, he received accolades at international festivals and numerous network TV credits in the USA, Australia, New Zealand and Britain.

Now a solo stand-up performer and playing all the major comedy venues in his own right, Christian uses his dynamic guitar and vocal skills to target histrionic rock bands, musical theatre and morose indie musicians. He recently wrote and performed for ‘That Was Then This Is Now’ (BBC Radio 2) as musical counterpart to Richard Herring and Emma Kennedy, as well as giving his improvisation skills an outing on Radio 2’s ‘Jammin’.
Christian’s comic songs, improvisations, sharp wit and youthful energy have delighted audiences wherever he performs. He was recently interviewed for the British Comedy Awards Magazine, and will be appearing in Edinburgh in 2006, performing in the ever-popular ‘AAA’ at the Pleasance Courtyard.

Opening the evening is the equally fabulous Dominic Holland. Multi-award winning, Dominic Holland has been a professional comedian for more years than he cares to recall.

With countless television and radio appearances including HAVE I GOT NEWS FOR YOU and THE ROYAL VARIETY PERFORMANCE, LOOSE ENDS and THE NEWS QUIZ, as well as his two BBC R4 series – Dominic’s quick wit and accessible material has allowed him to tour the UK constantly and he has established himself as a firm fixture on the business entertainment circuit also.

Also appearing is George Lewis. Described as ‘An expert craftsman’- (Chortle.co.uk) George Lewis followed in the footsteps of of Jack Whitehall and Sarah Millican to win the Amused National New Comic Award at the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe.

He has since won a bunch of other titles, placed Runner Up in the prestigious Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year, reached the final of the BBC New Comedy Award, was hand-picked to perform as part of the Pleasance Reserve, supported Romesh Ranganathan on tour and played to three thousand people at the Edinburgh Playhouse as part of the Comedy Gala.
