Funhouse Comedy Returns
Funhouse Comedy Club is delighted to be back at the Grainstore Brewery, Oakham on Thursday September 30th for a night full of laughter.
Topping the bill is the friendly and mischievous Paul McCaffrey, who has appeared on ‘Live at The Apollo’, BBC 3’s ‘Impractical Jokers’ and ‘Russell Howard’s Good News’ and has supported Michael McIntyre, John Bishop and Lee Mack on tour. With his spontaneous, exuberant accounts and genuine magnetism he captivates his audiences.
Opening the night will be Irish comedian Andrew Maxwell who has appeared on several TV programmes, including Live At The Apollo and Mock The Week, as well as having his own Radio 4 series. A connoisseur of the ridiculous, and yet not the slightest bit cynical, with hard-hitting and hilarious material covering a variety of topics.
Completing the line-up is Shazia Mirza, an international award-winning comedian and columnist for the Guardian Weekend magazine who has also guested on ‘Have I Got News For You?’ From Birmingham, she was previously a science teacher with one of her former pupils being the rapper Dizzee Rascal. Star of radio and TV she has appeared on ‘Last Comic Standing’, ‘Richard and Judy’ and ‘The Wright Stuff’. Shazia’s distinctive act combines a deadpan delivery with observation on her world; her laconic one-liners represent something quite unique in modern comedy.
Compere for the night will be the amiable and amusing Scott Bennett, enthralling everyone with his warm and engaging delivery, he is a Yorkshire live wire with an undeniable no nonsense logic.
