An evening of stand-up comedy and a benefit for Reigate & Banstead Green Party. Come along for great laughs and to help fund our election campaign.
With the help of the award-winning Comedy Cottage (Chortle Awards 2015 - "Best small club in the South") we have a brilliant line-up of talent for you....
Our MC will be the incomparable Sajeela Kershi, who is currently working on her own hilarious stand-up show, Immigrant Diaries.
Sir Ian Bowler is the creation of award-winning comedy writer-performer Nathaniel Tapley. He has written for Have I Got News For You, The Now Show,The News Quiz, Gigglebiz and more as well as appearing in Dick & Dom, The Slammer and Tonightly.
Award-winning musical comedian Kate Lucas is a kooky blend of niceness and cynicism with "a razor sharp wit...a darkly comic mind" (Broadway Baby, 2013) and a varied collection of "absolutely hilarious songs" (Bruce Dessau, 2014).Chortle described her work as "delightfully crude...gleefully nasty".
Paul Savage's skills include stand-up, compering, radio hosting, tv presenting, awkwardly acting, moving sofas and making gin infusions. He has performed more than 1000 gigs, including three runs at the Edinburgh Festival. His jokes have appeared in ads and on Russell Howard’s Good News and he has published a book of comic strips.
Fred Ferenczi specialises in mordant, hilarious, disturbing weird comedic shtick. He has reached the final of two national stand-up competitions. He performed to great acclaim at the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe show and was in two shows at the 2013 fringe.
Don Biswas's set combines razor-sharp one-liners with humour about having Dyspraxia (organisation and coordination difficulties) and mild traits of Asperger's Syndrome while coming from a middle-class Indian family. Also thrown into the mix are quirky observational, political and topical humour.
Our headline act Ginger & Black, Eri Jackson and Daniel Lawrence Taylor, have been performing together since 2006, when they were runners up at the Edinburgh Festival. As well as sketch comedy, they perform songs that are dark, contemporary and very funny. They perform on the London circuit and all over the UK. Ginger & Black have appeared on BBC Radio 2, The Annie Mac Show, and had regular slots on 4Radio's The Weekly Show and Channel 4 Radio. In 2013 Ginger & Black performed on Russell Howard's Good News and Stewart Lee'sAlternative Comedy Experience.
