Comedy at the Guild – March 2017

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!

This month’s line up:

MC: Bryan Lacey
Although still a relatively new to the world of comedy, Bryan is a strong act and an excellent MC for any gig. He’s firmly established himself with various promoters and clubs throughout the UK and overseas. His mixture of slick, well-honed material lets you into his world introducing you to some of the strange incidents and people that he seems to attract.

Act 1: John Simmit
On stage sardonic comedian John Simmit is smart and thoughtful, in big contrast to his best known role, playing ‘Dipsy’, coolest of the Teletubbies in BBC TV’s international hit series. Internationally he has received a standing ovation at Amsterdam’s Nieuwe De La Mar Theatre; headlined in Bahrain, & played the New York Fringe Festival. From boxers as role models, to e-mail abuse, John’s musings leave audiences laughing and him confused.

Act 3: Nina Gilligan
Nina Gilligan exploded on to the comedy scene in 2011 2012 saw her as a finalist in Real radio XS Comedian of the year competition, judged by BBC Comedy North and Industry professionals at The Frog & Bucket Manchester. Sometimes outrageous, always hilarious, observational and storytelling comedy for all. A persona you will fall in love with.

Act 3: Gavin Webster
Famed and respected by his peers for his uncompromising and unusual approach and distinctly original routines Gavin now boasts a large cult following round the country and particularly on his native Tyneside where he sells out theatres with his one man ninety minute shows. Hard edged routines, quick-fire pastiche pieces, moronic jokes and sardonic songs has brought him this kind of praise and attention. So much so he was recently voted comedian`s comedian of the year by his fellow comics.
