Comedy at the Guild: April

Our monthly comedy nights are now established as a great way to see the hottest new stars without paying the big price tags!

Featuring three different comedians and an MC each month, you’re in for plenty of laughs and a great night out!

MC: Tony Simpson
Tony is full of energy and improvisation, a strong compere who can interact with any kind of audience. Finding fun, energy and positivity in life provide a platform for his comedy and loves nothing more than taking the audience by the hand and dragging them along. Away from comedy Tony has a wide range of different experiences within radio, as guest presenter, social commentator and sports related programs. He is also an accomplished rally car driver and regularly competes in the British rally car championships!

Act 1: Mickey Sharma
Mickey Sharma is an Indian that was born in Pakistan (its true!!) in 82 while his father was working for the Indian Embassy. After his family moved to England he endured various jobs like a waiter, shelf stacker, camera assistant and bouncer, Mickey started comedy in July 09 and now works as a full time comic and travels all over the UK and sometimes abroad (Spain, Romania, India, Czech Republic). Mickey is instantly likeable and is sure to have you rolling in the aisles!

“A very enjoyable, laugh a minute, roller coaster ride” The List

Act 2: Harriet Dyer
Fresh and unique, it’s a pleasure to spend time in Harriet’s company as she weaves her surreal and hilarious tales. An imitable raconteur, it’s easy to see how this new act is making a big noise. Harriet already has heads turning with her baffling tales of a misspent youth, and bewildering personal tales that are so ridiculous, they must be true. Establishing her own style of material and delivery after such a short time, means Harriet’s stock can only continue to rise.

“She’s got funny bones!” Kevin Bridges

Act 3: Chris McCausland
Fresh from his hit appearance on BBC1’s 2018 new series of Love at the Apollo!, fast rising star, Chris McCausland is the winner of the C4 Creative Diversity Award and appears on Miranda Hart’s Unwrapped on BBC2, ITV4’s Stand-Up Hero and on two series of Comedy Central’s The Comedy Store. Chris is the only professional comedian in the UK, and probably even the world, who is blind. This makes his particular brand of observational comedy all the more unique as he chooses to talk about this only moderately; instead, priding himself on the variety and originality of his material.

“Comedy brilliance!” Jasper Carrot
