Funhouse Comedy Returns to the Grainstore Brewery Tap for a new season of events this September.
Our first night kicks off the season as we mean to go on with a truly wonderful line up. Our headline act is the incredible Geoff Norcott.
Geoff Norcott has had a huge 12 months. From an appearance on Question Time to a slot on ‘The Mash Report’ and recording his first ‘Live at the Apollo’, things have really taken off.
It’s not just on telly where he’s been making huge strides. Following a successful debut national tour Geoff had another sold out run at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe. His next tour ‘Traditionalism’ hits the road in early 2018.
You may also seen Geoff’s name pop up as a writer on any number of top comedy shows, including: ‘Have I got news for you’, ‘Frankie Boyle’s new world order’, ‘Fake News’, ‘8 out of 10 Cats’, ‘Live at the Apollo’, ‘C4’s Alternative Election’, ‘The Sarah Millican Television Programme’, ‘The British Comedy Awards’ and many more.
Geoff continues to be a sought after headliner both home and abroad – earning an operational services medal for his work gigging on the frontline in Afghanistan.
Opening the night is the just as well known Nathan Caton. Nathan Caton is one of the most exciting young comedians on the scene. Gigging since the tender age of 19, over the last decade he has established himself both as a circuit headliner, and a name on TV and radio.
Within his first few years on stage, he had picked up various accolades and coveted plaudits including the Chortle Student Comic of the Year award and Broadcast Hotshot and written and starred in a pilot for Paramount Comedy (now Comedy Central) entitled The Nathan Caton Show.
Since then Caton has gone from strength to strength, wowing audiences at comedy clubs up and down the UK, and on his numerous TV and radio appearances, with his delightfully charming blend of personal and political comedy. Check out the Live page to see when Nathan is appearing near you… You won’t regret it!
Also appearing is Alistair Williams. Having exploded on to the stand up circuit last year, multi award winning Alistair Williams has quickly made a name for himself with razor sharp content and high-watt charm. He’s already become a regular at the UK’s most famous venues including The Comedy Store and Up the Creek and is constantly building an ever-growing international presence.
Unafraid of tackling rough subject matter, Alistair is also a passionate health campaigner. Combining raw personal anecdotes with a jam packed gag count and slick extroverted style, he creates bespoke comedy content to challenge the food and health industries, regularly grabbing the attention of leading megabrands. He’s also a history graduate and constantly exploring the subject via his stand up. Both themes will feature heavily in his new 2018 Edinburgh Fringe hour.
Smart, passionate, impressively quick witted and bursting with infectious confidence, this is stand up that grabs your attention and Alistair Williams is quickly solidifying his place as one of stand up’s most exciting rising stars.
Our compere for the evening will be the returning James Dowdeswell.
