Funhouse Comedy brings another great line-up of top comedians to the charming Lyric Rooms, Ashby-de-la-Zouch.
Topping the bill is Alfie Moore who has appeared on ITV's 'Show Me The Funny' and 'The Wright Stuff'. Following the success of the first series on BBC Radio 4 of 'It's a Fair Cop' in 2014 and subsequent exceptional feedback, from listeners and media reviews, two further series have aired with a fourth series commissioned for this year. A police sergeant, he brings a wealth of insights and comedy moments from his eighteen years on the beat, where a keen sense of humour has been the key to his success and survival! His engaging style enables him to get serious points across whilst still making the audience chuckle until they ache.
Opening the night will be star of 'Live at the Apollo' and his own Radio 4 series and former double Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee, Andrew Lawrence who is a unique and highly regarded stand-up comedian. His frighteningly splendid language is unique and brings out a most unusual mix of humour, never failing to make everyone think as well as laugh.
Also appearing will be writer, actor and comedian the affable and astutely witty Matt Green. He was the warm-up for Ben Elton's sit-com and in 2011 his show was nominated for 'Best New Show' at 'Leicester Comedy Festival'. With his innocent, youthful looks and cool facade he can get away with anything and his spontaneous jokes never fail to express amusement.
Completing the line-up will be the incredibly funny cutlery sage Ian Crawford, with his unique safety advice.
Compere for the night will be the amiable and animated Spiky Mike.
