TV comedians come to Grantham Guildhall
Funhouse Comedy Club launches the new season with another great line-up of comedians at the Guildhall Arts Centre ballroom on Thursday, January 30.
Topping the bill is Perrier Award winner, author, broadcaster and comedian Dominic Holland, father of Spiderman actor Tom Holland.
He has made numerous appearances on radio and TV, including ‘Have I Got News For You’, ‘The Clive James Show’, ‘The Royal Variety Show’ and ‘Never Mind the Buzzcocks’.
His talent for spotting people’s eccentricities and mixing in the fine points make his observations quite unique, and his appealing stage persona has the crowd immediately entranced.
Opening the night will be Christian Reilly who at the age of 15 joined a band to get laid.
The Salvation Army had different ideas! He became an integral part of the Perrier Award-winning show Otis Lee Crenshaw and the Black Liars, with comic/songster Rich Hall, and travelled the world three times.
Now, as a solo performer, he both fascinates and amuses his audiences with his comic songs and witty punchlines.
Also appearing is Shazia Mirza, an international award-winning comedian and columnist for the Guardian Weekend magazine who has also guested on ‘Have I Got News For You?’
From Birmingham, she was previously a science teacher, with one of her former pupils being the rapper Dizzee Rascal.
Star of radio and TV, she has appeared on ‘Last Comic Standing’, ‘Richard and Judy’ and ‘The Wright Stuff’.
Shazia’s distinctive act combines a deadpan delivery with observation on her world; her laconic one-liners represent something quite unique in modern comedy.
Completing the line-up will be Irish Comedian of the Year 2017 finalist Peter Flanagan with his great one-liners.
Compere for the night is the cheerful and energetic Spiky Mike.
Tickets are £11 in advance.
Doors 7.30pm for an 8.15pm start.
