CrazyBird Comedy Night – Thursday 29th November

Comedy Night November 2018

Unfortunately we are entering the long, dark winter months but don’t panic we are returning to the fantastic Malthouse Bar & Kitchen for our CrazyBird Comedy & Food night. With supreme Stand-Up comedy and tantalising burgers, you are in for a treat!

It is a d 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 proceedings will be the very tall and highly rated Colin Cole. Colin is literally one of the biggest names in comedy in Australia – not only is he 6′ 7″, he is also known for his hugely dynamic performance. His delivery is fast and furious, and his material ranges from the topical to the observational.

Packing the middle section are two extremely talented comedians. First up will be Alaskan born Chelsea Hart. She has been a professional street performer & stand-up comedian for 3 years, having performed in 30 countries around the world. “Chelsea is a buoyant force of nature who skips between genres with ease. She commands the room in an open and engaging way with clear experience from years of street performing. She creates a familiarity with the audience to bring them into her world in a natural and fresh way.” -Phil Kay.

Joining Chelsea in the middle section will be Graeme Collard. “Graeme Collard is very, very, VERY Funny” Joe Wilkinson. Graeme has been performing Stand-up since 2011, mainly on the Brighton and London circuits. Graeme discusses his unique reasons for being a vegetarian as well as making observations on every day scenarios and confusion in a friendly laid back kind of manner.

Headlining this stunning line up will be the awesome Andy White. “Had me exercising my pelvic floor muscles to avoid an accident” Karen Slater, BBC Tees. Andy is a Brummie who escaped from a call centre to become a stand-up comic. He combines silly voices and a mad afro to devastating comic effect. Andy’s humour embraces silly voices, funny faces, observational humour, topical humour and his mixed race background. He can do material that’s clever, cheeky, sick or just silly. His performance can shift from deadpan to loud and physical.

Food between 6.00pm-7.30pm (Food costs are separate from ticket price)
