Following on from the success of their previous visits to Ross-on-Wye, The CrazyBird Comedy Club is returning to the Ross Sports Centre with another stunning line up of professional stand-up comedians from the international circuit on Friday 11th May.
It is a pleasure to welcome back MC for the evening, fans favourite, the inimitable Geoff Whiting. Geoff will draw on his 20 years’ experience in the industry to ensure the night gets off to a flyer and will ensure that both audience and acts alike are enjoying themselves.
Opening the show is Sean Percival. Sean's brand of comedy steers clear of the surreal and confronts realism in an explosively funny way. Sean is an ex-welder from Dudley whose down to earth act is bang up to date with its upfront attitude. "Sean's comedy is the comedy of honesty. His act is the working man's revenge on the safe, middle-class, politically correct humour that has dominated comedy. Sean's humour is not surreal, it's not wacky, it's just bloody funny. This is not smile humour, this is bust your gut rubber underpants stuff" (Joan Serone Bungalow, What's On).
Smashing through the middle section is Johnny Wardlow. Johnny hails from Brighton. He's resident compere at Comedy Cuts and Hullabalooman Comedy. Johnny has performed Stand-up throughout the UK at clubs including: Angel Comedy, Komedia, Bearcat Comedy, Downstairs at The Kings Head, and across the Atlantic at The Comic Strip Live in New York. He's also appeared on BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio 4 Extra.
Joining Johnny is Caroline Mabey. “Fabulous off the wall lines… will endure in the memory long after you’ve forgotten every word from the big-name stand-ups.” – Steve Bennett, Chortle. She is also an accomplished character and sketch comedian, occasionally appearing as her grotesque creation Helen Heels, Landlady to the Stars. "A demented hybrid of Alan Partridge and Fawlty Towers Evening Standard, Critic’s Choice.
Headlining the night will be Mark Felgate, a man with many unique talents! Mark's startling abilities as a ventriloquist, combined with guitar playing and a wickedly daft sense of humour, have helped him become a sought after act on the stand-up comedy circuit.
Performing without a dummy, Mark throws his voice to create side-splitting routines on school life, freaking out drunks and pallbearers and the vagaries of censorship. His performances include a slew of silly voices, noises, vocal acrobatics, twisted songs and guitar histrionics.
So sit tight Ross, this comedy night promises to give you a night you’ll be talking about for months.
The Doors & Bar open at 7pm show starts at 8pm
