A whole weekend of comedy for Mountsorrel with the Leicester Comedy Festival on Friday night and The Crazy Bird Comedy club on Saturday night.
The CrazyBird Comedy Club return to the Mountsorrel Memorial Centre on Saturday 9th February with another stunning line-up of professional comedians from the UK circuit.
Headlining this great evening of entertainment will be English Comedian of the Year 2017 and Britain’s Got Talent 2018 Semi-Finalist Nick Page, “a huge dose of likeability with some very clever material” Bath Chronicle.
With storytelling comics there’s a moment where the audience asks themselves ‘I wonder if that’s true?’ With Nick there is more doubt, because the stories are so outlandish, and yet at the same time there’s the sure knowledge that every story is true, and that his is a life lived laughing from disaster to disaster.
He has an enviable gag rate, with each story and routine filled with set ups, call backs and devastating punchlines. His stories are unique, yet relate to everyone. Everyone has felt frustrated by the legal system; nobody else has tried to go to prison to prove a point. Everyone watches daytime TV; nobody else has been sacked from it for an incident involving a Russian call girl and an antique rocking horse.
“The very best storyteller on the comedy circuit” – Rhod Gilbert
“Roguish, Bear-like, with a host of barely believable stories about life,love and brushes with the law” – The Guardian
Supporting Nick will be Tim Hoskins. Tim’s been performing since early 2015 and received interest from agents and regular repeat bookings from professional promoters, including Glee Club. Tim performs as character act Marti, mocking British local customs, language and habits. Naïve observational content with some wordplay and storytelling aim to give this act broad and entertaining appeal. Marti is a German stand-up with a nervous facial twitch, who tells us funny stories from his day-to-day life.
‘Great big belly laughs from audience and comics alike, Tim’s set was peppered with moments of ridiculous strokes of genius! We will definitely have him back and thoroughly recommend him.’ Fitz of Giggles at Komedia.
Birmingham based comic Lovdev Barpega is also on the bill. His act consists of one liners and short stories, He’s friendly, hardworking and as Charlie Baker once said to me “very likeable character on stage”.
“The audience were crying with laughter from the moment he opened his mouth. He isn’t afraid to try new jokes and on the occasions they go wrong the audience laugh even harder because Lovdev Barpaga has a very natural way of making people laugh, by the end of his set you feel like you’ve made a new best mate, the sort of mate you go to when you need cheering up.” We’ll be booking him again and again! – The Comedy Lodge (May 2012).
The night will be hosted by MC Jon Wagstaffe ,“A naturally sharp & funny comedian, fresh like everything from Tewkesbury.” – Patrick Monahan, who will regale you with stories of his weekend, complete with raucous detours, unfinished sentences (not that it meant you couldn’t follow) and inappropriately mixed metaphors!
