Another great line up for Marine Hall’s Comedy Club
Published: Wednesday, 30 April 2014
Marine Hall’s favourite Friday night Comedy Club is back on 9 May with another hilarious line up to tickle your funny bones!
This time there’s two great headline acts - Iain Stirling and Alfie Brown, plus support act Tommy Rowson and MC Mark Smith.
As seen on Russell Howard's Good News (BBC3), Iain Stirling is a stand-up comedian and also the current face of CBBC and can be seen presenting on the channel every weekday afternoon. Iain was dubbed one of Scotland’s hottest newcomers after his performance at the Glasgow Old Fruit Market to over 750 people. He has supported Russell Kane and Rhod Gilbert on tour and last year appeared in The Comedy Zone, the most prestigious new act showcase at the Edinburgh Festival.
Joining Iain is stand-up comedian Alfie Brown. Described by the Huffington Post as the most exciting comedian on the circuit today, he is a screaming, pretentious 27 year old divorcee who has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder but doesn't know if it exists. He's funny, loud and kind in the most horrific way possible.
Welsh comedian Tommy Rowson, started performing comedy in 2010 and has since won So You Think You're Funny - the Gilded Balloon's stand-up competition for new comedians. Now in its 27th year, the annual talent search has a reputation for discovering new stars, with previous winners including Peter Kay, David O'Doherty, Rob Rouse, Miles Jupp and Lee Mack.
Rowson, who currently lives in London, has also reached the semis of the Amused Moose Awards and the finals of the Laughing Horse competition. He won over the So You Think You’re Funny judging panel - which included the Gilded Balloon's Karen Koren, comedy critic Bruce Dessau and celebrity judge Lee Mack - with a routine that included poetry 'inspired by God'.
Mark Smith, who will MC the evening is a previous finalist in So you Think You’re Funny and is a quick witted and sharp comedian. Described as one to watch by The Guardian, Smith should round up the evening perfectly.
The show kicks off on Friday 9 May at 8pm.Tickets are just £12 each or £10 each when booking a table of ten or more. To book your tickets click here or call the box office on 01253 887693.
