Funhouse Comedy in October – SOLD OUT!
Funhouse Comedy Club returns to the Grainstore Brewery, Oakham on Thursday October 28th for another great night of laughter.
Topping the bill is UK-based, French comedian and raconteur Marcel Lucont. Having toured the world with his dry wit, bawdy chansons and exquisite poetry he has the audience laughing from start to finish. His deadpan delivery and surreal musings are both inspirational and fascinating.
Opening the night will be Jo Caulfield, a genuinely witty and sharply observational comic, who quickly builds up a rapport with her audiences. At 17 she left home and moved to London to sing and play drums in a Rockabilly band, even though she could actually do neither! In her first comedy open spot, which she won, she was drunk and decided to enter without any preparation at all! Since then she has gone from strength to strength appearing on TV in the likes of ‘Have I Got News For you’, ‘Mock the Week’, ‘Saturday Night Live’ and ‘Never Mind The Buzzcocks’. Her presence is equally felt on Radio, having appeared on ‘The News Quiz’, Clive Anderson’s Chat Room and recording her own programme for a number of years on Radio 4. Add to that TV warm-up and comedy writer for such people as Joan Rivers, Ant & Dec and Graham Norton, here is a very talented lady.
Completing the line-up is the intelligent, fast fire Rob Mulholland with his sarcasm and clever annotations. Having performed his debut show at The Edinburgh Festival 2017 and appearing as the character ‘Death’ in Gary Delaney’s comedy panel show ‘Panelbeaters’, he has plenty more tales to tell.
Compere for the night will be appealing song writer, animator and comedian Howard Read.
Tickets are £10 in advance
