Funhouse Comedy is back at the Lyric Rooms, Ashby-de-la-Zouch on Thursday December 1st for more fun and laughter.
Topping the bill is the animated Sean McLoughlin. His slightly offhand take on the world and awkward view on it is somewhat contradictory, curious and comical. Hugely in-demand in the U.K. and internationally he has most recently been the tour support for Ricky Gervais in arenas across the globe, having previously opened for Bill Burr at the Royal Albert Hall and performed a gala show at the Sydney Opera House. A regular at comedy festivals and clubs the world over, he has also performed six acclaimed solo shows at the Edinburgh Fringe. has made TV appearances on Stand-Up Central, Comedy Central At The Comedy Store, The Stand-Up Sketch Show and fronted a 5-part series for Vice, as well as filming a set for Kevin Hart’s LOL Network at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal and a small part in the Netflix sitcom ‘After Life.’
Opening the night will be the intelligent, controversially witty, hip and silly Markus Birdman. Regarded by many in the know as one of the best circuit acts in the country, he has toured internationally and had highly acclaimed shows at the Edinburgh Festival. His dandyish onstage confidence, versatility and infectious nature result in a truly absorbing performance.
Also appearing is comedian and actress Fiona Allen who has appeared on ‘Mock the Week’ and in many sketch shows, including ‘Smack the Pony’.
Completing the line-up will be the unique Alex Farrow, a former teacher whose nerdy material is based on observations surrounding the sciences of culture.
Compere for the night is the chatty and energetic Spiky Mike.
7.15pm doors. 8pm start.
