TV regular tops comedy bill
Funhouse Comedy launches its new season of shows at the Guildhall Arts Centre ballroom on Thursday, September 20, with a great night of fun and laughter.
Topping the bill is the intrinsically funny Lloyd Griffith who has supported Jack Whitehall on tour and made numerous TV appearances, including as regular host on Sky Sports Soccer AM and on Comedy Central Live at The Comedy Store.
As a choirboy in Grimsby, he sang on The National Lottery, with Dudley Moore who played the piano. And then, later in life, sang backing vocals on a Bee Gees album.
A professional singer, but always a natural jester, he turned to stand-up, and with his down-to-earth cynicism and lively attitude, he enthralls the crowd.
Opening the night will be the energetic and satirical writer and comedian Geoff Norcott who has many TV credits to his name, including Live at The Apollo, The Mash Report, Question Time and Comedy Bigmouths . He delivers an eclectic mix of dark material, impressions and politics with a confident smile and optimism. His shrewd standpoints on life make his anecdotes extremely captivating and leave his audiences wanting more.
With his innovative ideas and haikus is the creative and quirky comedian and actor James Bran, who entertains everyone from a variety of angles.
Completing the line-up is Jamie D’Souza with his unique and catchy musical mixes.
Compere for the night will be the cheerful and energetic Spiky Mike.
Tickets are £11 in advance. 7.30pm doors, 8.15pm start.
