Funhouse Comedy Club returns to the Grainstore Brewery, Oakham on Thursday January 27th for more fun and laughter.
Topping the bill is comedy/magician and writer Pete Firman who has appeared on BBC1′s ‘The Magicians’ and made guest appearances on ‘The John Bishop Show‘, ‘The One Show’ and ‘BBC Breakfast’ to name but a few. He has performed at The Edinburgh Festival 10 years in a row, toured the UK with 6 solo theatre shows and is recognised as the UK’s leading comedian/magician. More magical than Dumbledore on a good day, so leave your scepticism at the door!
Opening the night will be the energetic and satirical writer and comedian Geoff Norcott who recently won a BBC Radio and Music Award for Best Comedy Production and has many TV credits to his name, including Live at The Apollo (BBC 2), The Mash Report (BBC2), Question Time (BBC2) and Comedy Bigmouths (C5). He delivers an eclectic mix of dark material, impressions and politics with a confident smile and optimism. His shrewd standpoints on life make his anecdotes extremely captivating and leave his audiences wanting for more.
Also appearing is the appealing and gripping writer and comedian Eddy Brimson. Known as a ‘geezer’ he is one of the most entertaining comedians on the circuit. Having made many TV appearances including Eastenders, Absolutely Fabulous, The Thin Blue and Casualty, he has also featured in TV adverts such as Snickers and Bacardi Breezer. Travelling all over the world as a stand-up he once even did a gig naked!!!!!
Compere for the night will be James Cook with his sharp tongue and dry sense of humour he previously worked as a presenter on commercial radio stations, went on air with A-ha and presented Lenny Henry with his ‘Walk of Fame’.
