Crazy Bird Comedy Night – Thursday 6th September

Comedy Night Sept 6th

The CrazyBird Comedy Club and The Malthouse Bar & Kitchen have teamed up again to bring you a night of fantastic comedy and tantalizing food on Thursday 6th September at the ever popular venue – The Malthouse Bar & Kitchen in Stroud.

Delicious food from the Malthouse menu will be served between 6-8pm before it gives way to four professional comedians from the UK & International comedy circuit.

MC for the evening will be fresh faced funny man Matt Green “Why someone as funny as this isn’t doing the Apollo, or having a Radio Four series of his own, is a bit of a mystery. Maybe one day. Let’s hope so.” Theatre Bath. Matt has been performing stand-up comedy since 2003, and has appeared at venues all over the UK and across the world. His act is a mixture of high energy observational and topical jokes combined with more personal stories and anecdotes. He is a highly experienced compere and is excellent at audience interaction. So sit tight Stroud!

The opening act is Canadian David Tsonos, “Very confident, knows his material totally and had the crowd roaring. Good face and voice for comedy, great timing”. The Stand Comedy Club. His comedy stems from everyday life that all can relate to, from living with his cat to being a Canadian living in the UK. Whether it’s a Bar gig, a Comedy Club or a Corporate function David makes them laugh until they can laugh no more. – Well maybe a little more!

Packing the middle section is Rob Coleman – much more than just great hair! Rob is a very versatile act. Equally at home telling beautifully written gags or bantering with the audience. He is an established semi-pro comic doing opening, middle, headline and MC work for a wide variety of provincial clubs. He is primarily a gag based act but is very comfortable working the crowd. Joining Rob in the middle section is Jake Baker who has been described as “Imaginative and original” by The Scotsman and has also been compared to a young Alan Davies.

Headlining this stunning line up is the fantastic Roger Monkhouse. Roger is one of the most original and distinctive acts on the comedy scene. A consummate stand-up who employs a deadly combination of charm and menace to exert a masterful control over any audience. A highly original and quirky performer, Roger’s trademark stage-prowling style and curious, inimitable manner have established him as one of the hottest names on the comedy circuit.

Distinguished as a comic by his eloquence and keen eye for a fine phrase, Roger’s easy observational style is spiked by the signal flares of an accomplished gag writer. A supremely confident compere and seasoned corporate host, Roger is happy to improvise freely with a crowd and is at great ease bantering with an audience, but has no shortage of first class observational material in his armoury.

As one of the most sought after acts on the comedy circuit, Roger headlines at all the major comedy venues and has performed extensively throughout the United Kingdom and Internationally, most recently performing in Belgium, The Netherlands, South Africa, China, Singapore, Tokyo and the Middle East.
