Headliner – Tony Burgess

 

Saturday 7th October

Tony Burgess   - Award winning stand up comic and writer has played most clubs and theatres throughout the country from the Comedy Store and Jongleurs to The Frog and Bucket in Manchester. He won the North West City Life Comedian Of  The Year and came runner up in So You Think You’re Funny

 

 “…Always clever often hilarious….” (The Scotsman)
    “A Demon set and staggering stage presence.”      (The Big Issue)

Has a prolific period of writing on a wide range of shows such as the award winning BBC 3 comedy Ideal (where he also played Troy, a mad DJ who lived in Moz’s cupboard) to the play Doorway, which premiered at The Royal Exchange Studio Theatre in Manchester, to the film Wallace and Gromit and The Curse Of The Were-rabbit

Anthony King - Has developed a dark comedy persona that encompasses sharp observations and an abundance of one-liner based routines. In recent years he has added original songs to his act and they maintain the un-predictable and devilishly droll dead-pan throughout, at the same time taking the act to a new level.

He has performed in Germany, Spain, The Netherlands, Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Bahrain. On stage, he has supported Lee Evans, Eddie Izzard and Jo Brand .

“King of the one-liners”  BBC LONDON LIVE

“Outstanding is Anthony King, an elegantly mournful figure whose timing and delivery of a stream of one-liners and non-sequiturs are masterly” THE SCOTSMAN

 

Thomas Rackham   - “A box-ready comic” – Steve Bennett, Chortle

Compere – Wayne Beese

Deadpan stories from a thirty-something Dudley man lumbered with a wife and two kids who just wants the house to himself so he can put his suit on and play Football Manager all day.

It is his mission in life to convince people that, despite his miserable face, he is happy. So far he is failing. Miserably.
